Monday 4/24 Weigh In

I’ve made progress! This morning I stepped on the scale and it said 153.8  lbs. That’s 7.2 lbs from my start weight. I’m well on my way!

Sunday – Back Workout

On Saturday, I took my baby for a 2 mile walk after I finished at work. I didn’t follow the carb cycling at all as I said. Sunday, I went to the gym in the morning and did a back workout and did some interval running for 20 minutes. Here’s the back workout I did:…

Thursday and Friday

Thursday is not really worth mentioning. Friday was muuuch better. Except for the diet, I didn’t plan for it very well, so therefore I failed. I didn’t have a breakfast prepped so I had a spinach egg white wrap at Starbucks. I also didn’t have the sirloin for the later meal so that didn’t happen….

Wednesday – Another Day of Nothing

Wednesday – I did not workout. I ate my first three meals and then late at night I ate some chicken. My phone broke, I was tired and blah blah blah. Therefore, I went to bed and did not feel bad that I didn’t work out. Bad news, it is now Thursday and I’m still…

Monday – High Carb Day

This is the official start day of my diet. High carbs, day 1. I think I’ll try to weigh myself every Monday morning right after I wake up to measure progress. This morning, my weight was at 159.6 lbs, so I’m down about two pounds. Progress! I ate my breakfast once I got to work…

Core Exercises for Diastasis Recti – Ab Separation

Exercises to repair separation of ab muscles. I thought I was at 2 finger widths apart around my belly button, but I checked again the other day and it seemed smaller. I’d been randomly doing vacuums, and I guess it helped. I’ll keep going with these exercises  from Melissa Bender to keep building up that…

Sunday Night Workout

This wasn’t much of a workout, just quick cardio so I could get home and SLEEEEEEEEP. Which I didn’t do. Good job me. 30 minutes on the Stairmaster, level 2. Started to give myself a little lift towards the end of this but tried to keep it to a minimum.
