Day 20/Day 2 Challenges

Tuesday, June 06, 2017

The challenges are quite challenging! I was wishing there were more to the waist trainer challenge, but it slowly builds you up. The arms challenge, I had to modify the chair dips and use my 5 pound weights, lifting them behind me. I simply cannot do a chair dip in my current condition. I have always disliked chair dips, they are hard, but right now I wish I could do one! I'll work up to it, I'll get there one day! The waist trainer challenge is hard, but I can do it, or I could do yesterday's, LOL. The Double D's are HARD!!! But then so is the reverse crunch! Whew! emoticon Can't wait to do it again today!

Last night was simply dreadful. I was awake most of the night and had disturbing nightmares the rest of the night. I woke up exhausted and barely able to keep my eyes open. Now I've had my Thrive supplements and I'm awake, having my Thrive shake and that always wakes me up the rest of the way (probably because it is like a frozen smoothie).

Confession time. Last night I got so hungry, but it was more of a craving hungry than a stomach hungry, but I gave in. I made a scrambled egg burrito, 409 calories. I should not have. I wish I had not, that messes up my calories for today. I also had a PB&J, which is like 325 calories. Yikes. I'm not going to have many calories to eat today, I ate them all last night!!! Yes, I put them on my nutrition tracker in the snack category. I wish I could sleep through the night so I would stop the midnight munching. Don't get me wrong, I'm sleeping much better than I was a month ago, but still. I gotta stop eating in the middle of the night! I'm going to put a sticky note on my screen that says, "do not eat!"

DH bought a new coffee maker and set it to brew at 7 this morning. It smells so good! He decided that having the k-cup brewer was too expensive so he bought a drip machine. He wanted to throw the k-cup brewer away, but I was like, let me at least use the rest of the k-cups first, otherwise it is a waste of money!!

I worked out on the treadmill for 37 minutes yesterday, the last 7 minutes were a cooldown, but I don't think I do enough of a cooldown. The first 5 minutes is a warm up. I think I need to start doing warm up stretches and a longer bit of cooldown stretches. I don't include my time doing my strength training exercises in my minutes because I don't keep track of them unless I do a video. Perhaps I should keep track for the challenge I'm doing.

Goal for tonight: No middle of the night eating!!!
Off to work out once my shake settles.
Hope y'all have a good day! I'm going to stay busy :)

    Maybe you can have a stash of healthy snacks available when you get the munchies- like a boiled egg or some celery with peanut butter.

    There are lots of different arm challenges. I got one from www.blogilates.com - it is great. No weights required. Moves I can actually do. Arms are feeling it. I am on day 16. Best wishes.
