Day 30 (day 2 / week 5)

When you decided to do something everyday for an entire year, you kind of have a picture in your mind how to do it. I decided to exercise, so I figured that everyday sometime in the morning before Logan woke up, or in the afternoon when Logan is taking his nap, I would put my video in, and exercise that way. Today I didn't. My "plan" sort of fell apart I guess.

I was super cold today and fell asleep on the couch while Logan took his nap. By the time I woke up Jason was home from work and it was pretty late (in my eyes) to do a video.

A few days ago MizFit posted a video in her blog that demonstrated some basic resistance band exercises. The exercises I do with Slim in 6 are very similar, but remembering her blog, inspired me to do resistance band exercises today.

I am trying to build endurance in my muscles so I did a lot of repetitions in each set and rotated everything w/out stopping for a little over 20 minutes. My heart rate elevated and I started to breathe heavily, so I guess that's a good thing. I guess this would be like circuit training (??).

I rotated these exercises:
squats, bicep curls (band), tricep extensions (band), lat pull backs (band), overhead extensions (band) and 2 things I don't know the name for (one for the hamstring and the other for the front part of the deltoid with the band).

Oh! I noticed something different today. It's totally silly, but makes me happy. Before I got fat, I used to love Love LOVE my feet. Totally ridiculous, but they are cute, and my mom always teased me because I wanted to be a "foot model" (I really do have cute toes). Anyway, when I got fat, my feet turned into plump sausages with chubby stumps for toes (a lot probably due to the pregnancy). Since the weather turned, I don't think I have seen my feet without socks on at all (expect in the shower but I'm blind so cant see them anyway). Today I had them off because I spilled some of Logan's juice on my foot (wet socks are a pet peeve of mine) and noticed that my feet have gotten A LOT slimmer. I have ankles again and my toes look longer again--not like little sausages. I will be super excited if I can fit into my cute shoes again :). I'm sure I will be able to by the end of the year. Yaay!

It's funny how we lose weight in the strangest areas--places we would never even think to lose weight! :)

Hope everyone has a blessed weekend and a great weekend workout!

I can do this. I am a star. (with cute feet)
