Self Quarantine Day 9: Crazy Choices After Midnight

I think I’m going a little loopy. I’m chalking it up to lack of social interaction. I’m an extreme extrovert apparently. Not talking to humans in the flesh is crappy. All phone and no face to face makes Diana a dreary girl. (Don’t worry, I don’t think we have an axe and there’s definitely no hedge maze here.)

Let me give you an example of my crazy. Last night at midnight I decided to try out a free sample Beach Body workout. Midnight. I couldn’t sleep. It felt like a good idea at the time. My lovely friend who is a Beach Body coach is amazing and so encouraging. We’ve known each other forever and I trust her judgement so I had to try it and see what it was all about.

For context, I haven’t worked out in months. MONTHS. And even when I did work out it was a 15 minute workout at most. I’m in awful shape. Like get winded going up the stairs out of shape. Thus, I should have read the description of the workout I chose before doing it. But it was midnight so screw it. YOLO! (Or whatever it is the kids say nowadays. I wouldn’t know because the only people I see now are my family.)

Let me tell you, this workout video wasn’t screwing around. I was trying to follow along with the chick they had showing the modified (aka “for those who aren’t in great shape”) workout and I still nearly died. I didn’t know I could sweat that much in 20 minutes. On top of that because it wasn’t well thought out I tried to workout braless and nearly gave myself black eyes. Women like me should not be hopping around with no bra. It’s a dangerous game. I nearly passed out on my floor.

My after workout picture to prove to The Hubs that I did it.

It feels like even less of a good idea now. My legs are a big giant ball of ouch as is my abdomen. I will say this, it DID feel nice to do something physical last night. Next time I’ll be sure to stretch, wear a bra, and not try to push so hard. I made sure to stay in comfy clothes today and drink lots of water.

On the plus side, my chairs dried and turned out great. So now I have a pretty place to park my sore ass. Live and learn. *shrugs* I think tonight I’ll make some banana bread if I’m still awake at midnight. That’s better suited to my skill set.
