I am the most feeble, out of shape person here, and I'm a little embarrassed about how difficult this was, but here's what I did today. I did some "walking" in front of the tv while I watched a documentary about alien technology that we use everyday (circuits, lasers, fiber optics, kevlar, etc...), using spaghetti sauce jars as weights while I walked. I also did a minute of jumping jacks, which was surprisingly tough, but like I said, I am seriously outta shape. Okay, and don't laugh, but I did 15 excruciating sit-ups afterward. I think I'll keep doing 15 every day for a week, then do 20, and after another week, 25 and so forth. I haven't worked much on trying to strengthen my ab muscles since having my c-sections, (At first because it hurt! Afterwards, because I wasn't motivated.) so any type of ab exercise really is very difficult. when I do sit-ups I can still feel the pulling in my muscles where they've been cut. Kind of creepy feeling. I wonder if that will ever go away?
