Okay so I figured out today that I am NOT halfway through Phase 1. When marking off todays workout on the calendar I noticed that there are 5 weeks in Phase 1 consisting of 36 days. So the halfway point is not until Day 18. So in 2 more days the halfway point will be reached.
Tonight’s workout was another late one. Decided to wait until the kids were in bed. Tonight Mr Baby had no interest in going to bed. It took a few tries. I think he was over-tired from playing so hard and scooting himself across the living room on his tummy a hundred times this evening. He is really moving! Thinking he may be crawling sooner than later. Soon we need to get some baby proofing done!
On the schedule today was Hard Core Abs as well as a 45 minute walk. During the workout I got the feeling that my form is poor during the plank to push-up portion. It may be time to consider putting a mirror in the workout area of the basement so I can check my form. But all in all it was a good ab workout. The 45 minute walk was replaced with 35 minutes of aerobics. Much more of a workout than a simple walk and I felt like I could do more than just simply walk.
October 12th is the Run Scream Run 5 k, I doubt I will run much of it at all. Getting regular workouts in has been tough enough. My fibromyalgia has been flared up like crazy lately. It may be what is causing my extreme knee pain. I am not exactly sure but I would rather not hurt myself so I will do what i can and just do better the next one I sign up for. Baby steps.
also I broke my own rule of only weighing every month. YIKES! i did not like what I see. Up 6 lbs! it better be water weight from my upcoming “visitor.” Granted I did eat poorly a couple of times this past weekend and had a decent amount of beer but 6 lbs worth? No way! I’m talking 6 lbs above my beginning weight. I am in a wedding next weekend and really can’t fit an extra 6 lbs into my dress albeit from water or from fat.
