I exercised the last two weeks about 3-4 times a week. The first week because of my back and then driving 20 hours and last week because of sickness and busyness. I honestly think it is SO MUCH HARDER to exercise 3-4 times a week than to do it every day. I think when you exercise every day, your body stays 'greased' and it is so much easier to get into the rhythm of a workout. However, the dryness combined with the altitude and heat is also making things harder. I've had to limit my workouts to about 20-30 minutes because I have been getting extremely dehydrated during them.
However, given the traveling this month (I won't get home till the end of the month), my exercise goals are simply to maintain my weight as much as possible and a semblance of a routine. I am already struggling with bloating from all the different foods we're eating (we're normally vegetarian) and my body doesn't feel great. However, the exercise at least minimizes the discomfort a bit. I am heading to Jesse's uncle's house tomorrow, and he has a humidifier in his house and a treadmill, so maybe I'll get better workouts the next few days.
Amie--I'm so sorry about your friend. My good friend Jen had HELLP syndrome with the birth of my goddaughter. It was very scary. I'll definitely pray!!!
Katie--Sorry about your struggle with motivation. Having gone through this struggle not too long ago, keep pushing through and you'll be so glad you did!!! And, in regards to results, I find that around month 3 is when they really start to show. It is hard to wait that long but at least it will eventually happen!!!
