Day 1 – Today started off with a YOP for breakfast. Before I left to go grocery shopping, I did 60 crunches (top, middle, and lower abs) and 60 standing lunges. For lunch I had a Mandarin Chicken Salad from Wendy’s with only 1/4 of the dressing in the package. I had a handful of almonds for a snack and a cup of coffee. For dinner I had pan-seared Tilapia with red and yellow peppers, celery, onion and dijon mustard with rice on the side. 60 more crunches and lunges, before bed, to come.
Day 2 – I woke up this morning and really didn’t feel like exercising, but I did anyway. 80 crunches, 20 push ups, and forty leg lifts(?) (those things where you lay on your side and hold yourself up with your elbow and lift the leg closest to the ceiling). I also did 10 lunges, but had to stop because my guests had arrived. Food wise I haven’t done so well today. I ate a vegetarian omlette with fruit and a piece of toast….here’s the worst part: Our friend brought over sweets and I had this DELICIOUS caramel cheesecake. Guess that looks like a few extra jumping jacks and squats tonight. For dinner I think I’ll just have fresh vegetables. Celery and peanut butter for dessert!
Day 3 – Today was great! I’ve done 100 squats, 120 crunches, and 200 jumping jacks! I’m so proud of myself. I had oatmeal for breakfast, and celery and peanut butter for a snack. Then I made baked chicken for dinner with fresh carrots on the side. Overall , it was a good health day for me. I didn’t ever crave dessert! Lets hope the rest of the week goes this well.
Day 4 – I was sick all day today…still did 120 ab reps and 40 jumping jacks and like 4 squats…lame, I know. I spent most of the day with a bottle of Robitussin in bed trying to make my eyes stop watering. My eating reflected my activity level. I ate hardly anything.
Day 5 – Starting out the morning right. Having fresh squeezed orange juice and I put on my athletic gear right away. I still don’t feel 100% but I’m jumping back in the game.
Day 6 – Rest day + 20 minute walk
Day 7 – 20 minute walk + 160 abdominal reps + 25 squats
