I’m writing this after eating 4 slices of Papa John’s pan pizza and 3 pieces of their cheese and bacon stuffed breadsticks. I didn’t eat it all in one sitting. Half for lunch, half for dinner. The results are the same. I could vomit.
I’m ashamed of the consistency in my weight loss posts the last couple of weeks. Or lack of weight loss- posts. I’m optimistic I will get my shit together one day and lose the weight I need to be satisfied. Today was not that day. Tomorrow will be!
In the meantime, here are a few at home exercises I do when I’m not shoving pizza and breadsticks down my gullet.
- Push Ups
- Leg lifts
- High Knees/Butt Kicks
There’s two ways you can decide to do these workouts
- Give each exercise a number of reps and then complete a certain number of sets. For example:
10 squats, 10 pushups, 30 second plank, 10 leg lifts, 10 high knees, 10 butt kicks= 1 set, complete 2-3 sets depending on your level.
- Give each exercise a time limit and do as many reps as you can in the time allowed. Record the number you were able to complete in that time. For example:
30 seconds squats, 30 seconds pushups, 30 second plank, 30 second leg lifts, 30 seconds high knees, 30 second butt kicks. Lengthen the time if you need more of a challenge.
Pretty quick, easy, and painless as far as exercising goes. I should probably do a round or two or twenty when I don’t feel like I’m going to explode anymore.
Update on my current weightloss:
Week 9: I gained 1.4 lbs, bringing the total since Jan.3 to 4.2 lbs lost, and from my heaviest weight ever 41 lbs.
After writing this post I did have two solid days of eating right and exercise, but it wasn’t enough to combat the other days of not. But I will continue on and hope to lose a few more pounds before my trip to visit family next week!
