Week 4 Journal Entries: 

Monday January 27:
Today was the Slim workout. I'm amazed that although I'm on week 4, I am not bored and still getting a great workout and calorie burn!! My HRM said I burned 249 calories in 40 minutes.

Tuesday January 28:
Today was Power workout. I LOVE this workout!! I always feel so strong and empowered after this workout!! My HRM said I burned 327 calories in 51 minutes.

Wednesday January 29:
Today was Slim again. Was feeling a little tired so I slept in until 6am instead of getting up at 5am. Was still able to get both my workouts in because it ended up being a stay at home snow day! :-) My HRM said I burned 249 calories in 39 minutes.

Thursday January 30:
Rest day for Baladea

Friday January 31:
Another Power workout day! I tried to go slow and deeper with the moves using the resistance band. Hoping to do some videos this weekend to show some of my favorite moves.

Saturday February 1:
Today was suppose to be Fusion workout. Its a new workout that I've never done before so I was really looking forward to it.
Unfortunately, I was feeling some discomfort Friday afternoon in my middle far left of my back. I tried to stretch and then did foam rolling and my hard massage ball in that area in hopes of relieving the tightness and discomfort I felt. apparently that aggravated the area more and made it swell, because I woke up in the middle of the night in severe pain. I had to lay on an ice pack the rest of the night. I ran some errands with the kids in the morning, but I've been having to ice alot and take alot of tylenol and advil. :-( I've never had an exercise injury before except for knee pain.

Sunday February 2:
I'm still in alot of pain with my back. I haven't slept well in 2 days and I'm worried about sitting in my office chair at work tomorrow. Not sure what to do about starting week 5 of my exercise programs...

Should I take the whole week off or a couple days?

  1. I'm checking out the program, it sounds really interesting. If the pain is still so bad that you're concerned about sitting in a chair, I'd recommend you not only take some time off, but that you see your doctor. Pain that severe is not something you should wait out.
