Guess what guys!! I worked out last night! I finally had a GREAT 30 minute basement workout. I did a brisk walk on the treadmill for a straight uninterrupted 15 minutes. Then I did 20 reps on each arm with 17.5 pound weights (I used to be up to 25 pounds but I have not done it in a while). I did my chin exercises to tighten up my facial muscle to help get rid of my double chin and then I went on the weight bench and did 20 reps of butterflies and 20 leg lift/stomach crunch things in intervals of 10. To finish it off I did the exercise bike until my alarm went off. Did I ever feel the burn! I am so proud of myself that I was constantly moving and did not take a break. I also didn’t check my phone once to see how much time I had left. When I was on the bike and my alarm went off I went to get off the bike and turn it off but then I was like well I can keep going so I rode it for a little longer so I think all in all I worked out for about 35 minutes instead of 30.
This morning I woke up and had my oatmeal and a cup of coffee. I then made a cup of green tea after. I had some popcorn and missed lunch. I made another cup of green tea and then I worked out in the basement again already! I did the same exact thing as I did last night but no crunches because I don’t want to overwork my abdomen. It still is sore from last night. I did another full uninterrupted 30 minutes. I’m so proud of myself! For dinner I just had some chicken soup that my Mom had made the other day with 2 slices of wheat toast. I am almost through my whole 75oz water jug. I still have been taking an apple cider vinegar tablet after all my meals.
I am going to skip weighing in this week due to my monthly visit coming soon. The next time I will weigh in will be Friday the 9th of November.
