Last night was day 3 of Zone 360 and it was so hard. If you recall, I texted Melissa to find out what to expect in class because my legs were killing me. The “surprise” definitely was NOT ice cream sundaes but an evening of legs. I put forth 100% and got through the brutal work out which consisted of 120 squats, 100 meters of lunges, 120 twists with a medicine ball, 60 jumping jacks with a medicine ball up and down, plus many more stations.
I left class feeling accomplished but so exhausted that it was difficult to drive home. When I got in, I had to climb a flight of stairs which were almost impossible to get up. All I could do was take Tylenol and lay down because anything else was too painful. Then I remembered I still had a lot to do before I could relax. Cooking and preparing food!
I’m so sick and tired of preparing my meals and I don’t think I can look at grilled chicken for the rest of my life. (…and it’s only been 5 days!) I want to be able to leave my home w/ a granola bar or something quick instead of making eggs, turkey sausage and toast while my dog gives me the death stare because I’m not sharing.
It is very important to me that I am honest with you. I do have my good days and my bad days. Last night and this morning were definitely bad. I cried for the first time because I wanted to give up. I am physically drained and so over preparing all these meals! I want to walk like a normal person and be able to walk down stairs without considering sitting on my butt and sliding down like when I was 5.
I have another class tonight and saw burpees on the schedule. I don’t know if you’ve ever attempted burpees but the thought of doing one right now makes me want to vomit. I’m having an “i want to give up” day and hoping just to get through one more class this week and take a break.
