Hips: 46 inches
Waist: 41 inches
Chest: 42 inches
Weight: OK, here it is, no one, NO ONE, including my dear husband knows this. 180lbs. OMGosh that was hard.
I did well today! I dealt with bullshit all morning at work and when lunch time came around I wasn`t going to go to the gym. I had this conversation with myself:
Me - you are so sore from the gym yesterday, just take a break today.
Me- I can`t! I want a flat stomach and to not hate myself later for not going.
Me- Meh, but you can read tmz and people and get caught up on all the Kardashian gossip!
Me - Ohh that sounds so tempting but I should really go, I want to keep this momentum going!
Me - Who are you kidding, you can barely walk to the bathroom and you think you can go on the elliptical trainer for 20 minutes...ha!
Me - You are kind of a bitch, I am so going to the gym!
And off I went! There were treadmills available today so I heaved myself up (k, well not heave but they are high up!) and choose the interval training option. For 2 minutes I would walk, then 2 minutes I would run. After about 6 minutes I increased the running part to a 6.5 and man was I going! It felt amazing! If you have ever run and or been a runner, you know the feeling I`m talking about! I used to run 5km everyday at lunch so this made me even happier! I was a lot sweatier than yesterday and was out of breath a wee bit. But that shows me I am working harder and pushing myself. After 22 minutes (never forget a couple minutes of cool down time, you don`t want to have your heart explode when you get off...well it really won`t but it`s a very good idea to get your heart rate back to somewhat normal bpm) I then did some ab work; 100 sit ups ( I so won`t be able to cough, laugh or sit up right tomorrow), I then did my usual bicep curls, hammer curls, etc. It was a great day at the gym!
Eating wise was good too. I did have a bagel this morning which totally increased my calories for breakfast but it was whole grain and gave me some carbohydrates to burn off while I ran. I track all my food intake with sparkpeople.com, it`s a fabulous resource and gives you a lot of information. I was very hungry this afternoon so I am going to bring more snacks and eat a bit more at lunch so I don`t feel like I want to eat my arm off ;)
