Thanks for the encouragement, everyone.
Lydia, your bosu ball story is going to make me feel so much better when (not if) this happens. It's so hard to look like you meant
to be chasing an enormous blue ball around the weight machines!
YWeight, it's nice to know I'm not alone!
Sacha, I actually found the nutrition chapter really interesting. I'm vegetarian, so the world in general (and my sister in particular) are convinced that I don't get enough protein. I went back and calculated it in my food journal, and found I've been averaging about 70 g/day on 1300-1400 calories. I bought some protein powder, and I think I'm going to enjoy my post-workout shakes, if only because it's chocolate!
Day 2 was supposed to happen yesterday, but it's been postponed until today. Partly because I had a tough day at work yesterday, and between going in early and getting away late it would have been a very rushed gym visit, and partly to give my thighs muscles another day to recover. They were fine Monday after the workout, a bit stiff on Tuesday, and wobbling like jelly yesterday. They feel good this morning, so it's time to go and torture them again.
