Thank you for your support. I always enjoy your sense of humor. I read your journal too. Love it!Tuesday
, really bad weather. It was raining again. But today, it was windy & cold. Where is spring? It was so ugly outside, I didn't feel like working out. Did! It only took a glance at my belly & I was pumping iron
. Did 3 sets of 20 (3 speeds) skull crushers & dips. I also worked on my hammstrings (3 sets of 20) & inner & outer thighs. As bonus: my calves. It was a good workout. Finished with a 5 minute intense cardio (30 seconds of running, jumping jacks, high knees, jumping (both feet) side to side, front to back, twisting, etc.). Did my sweating
. Had a nice breakfast: omelette w/ egg white, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, ham & 1/2 cheese & 1 slice whole wheat bread. Before dinner, i did 15 minutes of tae bo. Afterwards, I ate a big salad w/ lettuce, tomatoes, shrimps & 1/2 cup of brown rice. Sat down to watch the biggest looser with my family & my youngest son decided to do the stepper challenge. I remembered I have a stepper. Bought it 10 years ago & forgot I had it in my hubby's closet. Dusted off and you know what happened next. Yes, a big challenge. Can we do something without competing against each other? Not in my house
. Immediately, they got the timer & let the game begin! Ok, I confess, It was a great workout. Couldn't believe how fast & light on his feet was my baby. I guess loosing the extra weight paid off. I was quick too. My hubby, poor guy...need to get him vitamins
. My oldest, I just found out he has 2 left feet. He was tripping all over himself
. Final score: Baby: 430 steps in 5 minutes. Hubby: 120 steps, oldest: 156 steps (fell twice
), Me: 415 steps (not bad). Did we laugh? Duh! Just watching my oldest...priceless
. We also tried the walking plank. Disaster! They did fine. Me,
Ugh! Anyways, it was fun. Problem:
Drinking protein shake after a workout is making me sick. Can I drink just water or am I missing something if I don't drink the protein? I think is the protein powder. I was using the Whey & changed it. Will buy the whey this weekend, but meanwhile, what should I do? Please help! Tomorrow: don't know. Ran out of ideas. Waiting for my lightbulb to go on...
