1st Real Workout

We had our first workout today. Things went pretty well. Vionna didn't try to kill us or anything.

We started out doing five minutes on the ellipticals. Not bad at all.

Then we moved on. By far the strangest part was the American Gladiator style game of catch. (These pictures are a reenactment. We were much further apart for the real one.)

Devra seemed to have some trouble with the balancing part of this exercise. She fell off of her half ball a lot.

I would kick Devra's ass at American Gladiators. Maybe next time Vionna will let us use those padded sticks.

It was a beautiful day and we worked out outside almost the whole time. Devra said it felt like a vacation but I cannot recall any vacations I have ever gone on that involved push ups.

Here is a super flattering picture of me doing a squat.

I left the workout feeling pretty good but two and a half hours later I am starting to feel sore.

I've got a couple more pictures here. Vionna assured us that next week we would take pictures of us doing "the plank" and "Superman" for supreme embarrassment.

All in all it was a really good work out. I felt challenged but I never once cried or felt like I was going to die.

Let me know if you guys have any picture requests.

Did you do a plank on your elbows or on your hands?

I'm kinda jealous of your working out (I actually enjoy exercising; I'm a sick puppy), but then thought about the two pieces of cake I got to eat at work today that I wouldn't be allowed to have if I was dieting and trying to be a loser mom.

It was hard.

Devra said...

I thought we did them on our elbows. Now Sarah says we did them on our hands.


We did them on the ground. This I know for sure. So, I'll just go with that answer for now.

The secret cure for relieving sore muscles: exercise again! Yes, it sounds crazy, but you should get outside and walk and get your muscles working and your blood circulating.

The other cure: stretch and stretch again.

You know what. I think you are right about the elbow thing.

Devra said...

Our hands are connected to our wrist bones, the wrist bones are connected to the arm bones the arm bones are connected to the elbow bones.

So we are both right.
