Exercise: Power Half Hour Arm Toner vid
Notes: I didn't like using a band for this one, because I felt unevenly worked. I hate that! I like guaranteed even tension, so I'll use weights next time. I love Tony Horton. My daughter has a crush on Bobby. LOL! This was not hard for me to get through.
Exercise: Power Half Hour Bun Shaper vid; basketball with the big fun fam, short races with the littles
Notes: I am the loving fact that I can keep up with these, but I felt this one! Brings to mind the idea of bodyweight exercises again~all those burpees must have paid off. Proof that I must continue, but let me get past this head cold... One of my girls has been doing my vids with me and choosing healthier foods, too. That makes my day! No one wanted Mom on their team, so Mom and Dad stomped the littles in b-ball. :) Then we ran all kinds of races: running, skipping, galloping, sideways, backwards, crab walking, etc. We also started a new game today: Whenever a certain song is played we must stop what we're doing and dance! Or I do Turbo-Jam-type moves to it... Fun! (Even though not mentioned, this was done throughout the whole week.) :) Made the best artichoke pizza on a whole wheat tortilla for din-din.
Exercise: Power Half Hour Stretch vid; a little bit of digging in the back yard; 1 1/2 mi walk with a playground stop in the middle
Notes: I know how important stretching is, but I have not been doing it enough. I really, really needed this! It felt so good. But I must admit stretching doesn't feel like you're doing enough of a workout! Today I have felt like there's not enough of me to go around. Choosing to workout is leaving areas of lack, and the house needs a good cleaning!
Exercise: Power Half Hour Thigh Trimmer vid
Notes: My middle is sore after "just stretching". I'm still thrilled that I can keep up, but I am fatigued after this vid! Attended an incredible Mother Culture meeting this evening. The candlelit tables and place settings were beautiful! The Taco Soup was MMM-MMM good. I was moved to tears several times and hit the Andes mints pretty hard. They were especially good in my hot chocolate! I blew it and have no idea how many calories I really ate.
Exercise: Power Half Hour Ab Burner minus the supine parts
Notes: How does one wake up ravenous after eating before bed? And I hope my hunger will decrease when I'm not nursing and have to drop my cals.. ugh. Another good workout. I've had moments of sadness today, and with it came the desire to really eat. I still want to eat so badly! Fear of the scale Sunday is building... By the end of the night my stomach is growling. Argh! That'll teach me not to use my calories frivolously early, as I'm not one to go hungry. Sigh. The Hubs tried to get me not to log the extra -like that's going to make a difference! 3 days in the red...
Exercise: A nice, long walk around the neighborhood with the nursling. 2+ miles.
Notes: There's a hitch in my giddy-up. Slept for 3 hours while the nursling napped!
