As usual I am linking up with Skinny Meg to talk about my progress for the week.
This week consisted of five strength training exercises done 3 days and 3 days of cardio. Here are my stats for the week:
|5lb weight||8lb weight||8lb weight|
|Day 22||Day 24||Day 26|
|Squat, Curl, Press||41||37||37|
|3 Part Shoulder||19||19||21|
|Bent Over Rows||28||25||29|
The first time I do an exercise, it's almost like I'm testing it out. I first used a 5 pound weight because it seemed as though some of them would be really tough. (Remember, I'm a wimp when it comes to arms). But after doing the first day of these exercises I realized I could use an 8 pound weight. It's all about knowing what you can handle.
I have also been trying to incorporate smoothies into my daily routine. It's a quick and easy breakfast and SO healthy for you. Kale is so great for you and is a good source of Vitamin C. This smoothie kept me feeling full till about 10:30!
Yesterday I was feeling so exhausted from being up all night with my son that I really neded a pick-me-up. I've always heard that having a juice will help with your energy level and it DID! We all went out to lunch at work yesterday and I ordered a carrot, beet, celery & apple juice! I also had the vegetarian grapeleaves! Although it was eating out, I still felt good about what I had.
