Okay, I must be crazy. I am an overweight stay at home mom to 6 kids and monday, after karate lesson, I stayed and took jujitsu. They said it was like japanese wrestling, I said 'cool'.
I was rolling around on the floor with buff 20 year olds and had the time of my life. It was so much fun muscleing these guys around. When a green belt decided to get me in an arm lock and I got my arm back and took him down, I was so proud. When Sempai, my karate instructor, came in the room, he said 'she is so strong!" and while she was watching I took his arm out from under him. In the 5 minutes round he had me down way more then I got him down, same with everyone else I wrestled, but I really put up a fight.
The owner of the dojo, had this really excited look on his face when he was telling me I was a scrapper.
Monday hiked 3 miles, karate and jujitsu
Tuesday I hobbled out of bed, put ice on all the right paces and skipped my weight workout, That night I did kickboxing.
Wednesday I did full body weights.
Today, I am assistant coach to the elementry run and fitness team, so I get to run and play with the kids, then karate and kickboxing.
Things are getting so much easier in kickboxing. At first I was queasy for about 30 to 45 minutes after the workout. Now I am only queasy during the last part of the workout and I am over it before I am finished stretching. Soon I won't feel sick at all and that will be great.
It still isn't going down. I switched from fitday to sparkpeople to track food. I am trying to see what will work better for me. But according to both, I am hitting between 1200 and 1500 calories a day, and I log everything but my morning coffee. two days in the last two weeks I went way under the calories, both were in the 900's. (I know, that is bad. I am getting used to these workouts. With the night time kickboxing, I can't seem to eat dinner because my stomach is so tight) I am still weighing in at 190. I dropped taking protein supplements and added in instead 2 hard-boiled eggs to post workout. Mostly because it is spring and my chickens are giving me 5 eggs a day. We generally don't eat eggs everyday, so I have a surplus.
