Hurting.

Wow, kiddos. If you are long-time readers, you know that the Parakeet can get a bit compulsive about exercise.  And you might also know that during pregnancy she gave exercise the old NO.

At first, that was Dr. advised, and then she was tired, and then it was hard enough walking to the bathroom …so no exercise for the Keet for about 11 months, now.  Aside from walking.  Walking is great. But it doesn’t get the heart rate up or build arm muscles, so the Parakeet was ready to hop on the work-out train again.

She pushed a DVD to the top of her queue recommended by a friend – it’s good ol’ Jillian from The Biggest Loser – and, people, this workout is INTENSE.

The Parakeet did Level 1 yesterday.  She will do it again today and, hopefully, six days a week. It only takes about 20 minutes. BUT it is a VERY serious twenty minutes. Maybe in a couple weeks, she’ll move on to level 2. Woah, baby.   

Somewhere she knew working out again would be tough, but she kind of forgot it would hurt.
