Writing my dailies in the last seven minutes left at work.
Felt inspired and did four sets for the Ab Challenge and an extra plank. Promptly went home and gorged on chips and soda though. I almost ate second dinner since I ate early in the day but I resisted (after being sorely tempted by chips again.)
I kind of have a thing with chips.
Run was slower (it usually is at the end of the week when I’ve just about used up my sleep credits–wait–I’m ALWAYS chronically sleep-deprived. Still got in a respectable 1.59 miles. Ab Challenge was also lower–did 2 sets only, no extra plank. One minute on the forearms is really tough. Like Alea is contemplating, I might have to downgrade this exercise back to 1:30 until I can manage that entire thing successfully on my forearms only. My wrists have no problem holding the pose, but somehow on the forearms it just seems to engage my core a lot more.
Tomorrow is my friend’s wedding, so diet is going to go out the door. I will be dancing a lot, though, so that should be good for accruing steps.
I’ve been preparing my body to look good for this wedding for the last six months, so I hope my efforts will come through.
