If you follow me on Instagram (kscott24) then you know that I was participating in the #jmdvdchallenge and have recently stopped posting about it. I was hestitant to even write this because its totally TMI but I didn't want people to think I quit because I was lazy.
I started that 4 weeks PP. NOT a good idea. Although I felt fine while doing to the exercises, I always bled afterwards. This was the only time I was bleeding. For about 2 hours after the workout. I think it was just too much for my body too soon. I thought well maybe it's just a coincidence so that's why I've stopped and I haven't bled since. So I will miss winning that $150 but honestly but health is worth more than that. I jumped back into it feet first (like always) but this time my body wasn't ready.
I will be 6 weeks PP on Wednesday so I plan to ease back into it by walking and doing light weights. My gym will take Elouise at 6 weeks so I'm looking forward to the me-time and getting back into it. Slowly.
We went for a family walk outside yesterday for 2 miles and it felt AMAZING to get outside and sweat a little. I also need to get out of the mindset of pushing myself 100% for a little while. My body went through so major stuff and I need to give myself a break (easier said than done.)
Anyway, I wish you guys all the best and I can't WAIT to see everyone's before and afters and I still plan to post mine, even though it won't be for a prize :). I will still be following along and encouraging you guys but I need to listen to my body and stop for a while.
I am so thankful for this challenge because it has led me to some wonderful women who are truly inspiring!
I also have been making more of an effort to be present while I'm with my family so I may not be as present in the social media but I promise it's for a good cause :)
