Happy Tuesday All! I sure do love long weekends and short work weeks!
Have got up to about 35 seconds of plank, so I am still SLOWLY
After spending about half an hour on Friday googleing proper squat form and some ways to make them a little less painful, I put my new squat knowledge to use at work that night. I don't know how many I did, but I took every opportunity to squat! Things like taking bus bins from the bottom shelf instead of top. Over a 4 hour shift, I really felt the burn! Saturday was another 10 hour shift on my feet, 22,000 steps by the end of it all. Sooo much squatting that night too, Ouch! I was too hurtin' on Sunday for more squats, but I did my plank and I am going to call that a success. I think I am going to just add planks and squats to my regular gym routine so cutting it down to 3 times a week. Reducing carbs I think is going to be a big challenge for me. I love bread. So much. That being said, I think I will start with 3 days a week for the first week, then 4, then 5. I am hoping that will help me ease into it, and allow me a bit more wiggle room for figuring out how and where I can cut more carbs! After lunch today I will have about 20 carbs left
NO idea what I am going to make for dinner!
Yesterday was our valentines day - we celebrated with Fuddruckers, Yogen Fruz and Rocky Mountain Chocolates... It was not a low calorie day by any means, but it was wonderful! Then we went to walmart and bought an ironing board! So romantic
So glad that you and your BF have smoothed things out, I couldn't imagine your stress levels these last couple of weeks. I think you handled it a whole lot better than I would have in your shoes
D'awww you made new a new kitty friend!! Cardboard is the best way to lure cats (Mine is mad at me right now because I recycled "his" box... to be fair though, there was hardly any of it left after he squashed/shredded it, and I was tired of vacuuming up little bits of box all the time!! lol) Cats are awesome
- How did your concert go?? Looking forward to checking it out when you post a link
- Currently I go to the cheapo gym, no trainers or anything like that so I'm on my own there! I am looking at upgrading to a fancy shmancy gym with classes and such for the next phase tho
I am hoping to have mastered squats long before then! Sounds like you had a fantastic valentines day with your beau!
- You are doing AWESOME! Your couple of walks there really pushed your steps up last week! I was worried you were going to pass me!!!
