A great first day of Phase 2. I ate well all day and then did my work outs strong and intense tonight. Today was Chest, Shoulders & Triceps with ARX and I know what you mean Christina about your arms being noodles! All those push ups--by the time we got to the one-arm-balance ones where you lock your heels together, go into a side plank, raise your arm and look up--I could hardly hold myself up on one arm, I was shaking so badly! Nevertheless, I pushed through and finished it. Then I was really looking forward to setting a goal with ARX. I have never done all 25 of every one of the exercises. I always seem to take a break somewhere in there...so I was determined that today was the day. I was going to do every single one of each exercise. It was all good and going perfectly until I got to about #20 on the mason twists. My legs were shaking so bad and I was so exhausted that my stomach muscles actually gave out on me for a second there. So I ended up doing about 40 of them with my feet up and 10 with my feet down. Not too shabby though. I think by next time, I will be able to say I did all 344 (or whatever it is) ab exercises right along with the group on the dvd.
I didn't bother to wear my HRM tonight--as I don't really burn many calories on these weights work outs and it's actually kind of discouraging.
For breakfast I had an egg white scramble with FF mozerrella cheese and 1 turkey bacon with coffee/cocoa.
For lunch I had a chef salad with light ranch and 5 crackers (70 cal). Also a bowl of fruit with 3 apple slices, 10 grapes and a very small banana.
For snack I had 5 tortilla chips and 1/2 of a Honey & Oats granola bar.
For dinner we had baked tilapia with stir fry veggies and a little brown rice and a big green salad.
We did each have a homemade rice crispy treat tonight for dessert. I have no idea how "bad" those are but they are all gone now...so no more to worry about.
Kate: I got on the scale today and it said 137. I was like WHAT??? It's been staying at 134 consistently and I've been doing better and better with my eating and workouts so I was really expecting to see a loss. I have no idea why I would be going UP...but whatever. I'm not going to let it affect me too much. I know I'm doing what I should be...and that's the best I can do.
