I did not post yesterday, my apologies. I was out most of the day and by the time I got home, got all of my stuff put away, my exercises and dinner thought of, the husband came home and wanted to burn trash and then wanted to eat. So this post is for yesterday and today.
Yesterday, I had to go out of town and it so happens that where I had to go to, there was a Target in town. I LOVE Target. Living an hour or more from civilization, I take the opportunity for target shopping when I can. I bought a resistance band thinking that I might like it better than my weight. Wrong. I used a couple of times during the workout, but I switched back to my weights. My fix was supposed to be Dirty 30 but since I did that at the beginning of the week, I did the Upper Fix instead. Oh man, do I need to do that more often. I loved working out my arms. After that, I think I may double up some days so I can work my arms more. It was tough especially since I don’t have that much strength in my arms. I want to get up to using 5 & 8 lb. weights. That’s my goal right now. That may not seem like a lot to most people, but it’s a lot for me! I broiled salmon for dinner and had the leftover stir fry veggies. It was delicious. Gonna have to get more of that to eat. I loved it more than I thought I would. Who knew eating so healthy could taste so delicious? Anyway…Still working on the 10 minute abs. I try so hard to not stop, but it hurts so bad. I know the only way to get stronger is to push through, but when you can’t breathe, it’s a little difficult. I love the burn, hate the hurt. I was hoping that by the end of this week, I was going to be able to go the whole 10 minutes without stopping, but I’m not quite there yet. I have to modify just to keep myself moving.
Today is a yoga fix. I’m pretty excited b/c I love yoga, but I think I may double up on something else. I’m trying to build muscle here. I started the week out at 108.8 lbs. Now? I’m at 105.2 lbs. I know that I’m losing fat lbs. at least I’m pretty sure that I am, but I really don’t want to lose any more weight than necessary. I’m 5’2” so I’m not skin and bones, but I am small. According to the BMI charts, I’m actually under weight. My ideal weight for my height is 122 lbs! I need to gain 17 lbs of muscle! Wow! How in the world do I that with only 1200-1500 calorie diet? My cousin (who is a beachbody coach) is helping me, but I’m up for any other advice and help. I don’t want to just take supplements to help. I love food and want to eat, but I want to eat the right stuff. Well, I need to get to my yoga fix today and some lunch. Until tomorrow!
