SO! Finally, I got back on the band wagon and started up again (read previous post) This one is ranked right up there with Plyometrics. It's a killer! I've always been so bad with pushups and 7 out of the 12 exercises (14 actually because you do them twice) are pushups. My elbows were a lot better this time ( usually they pop) even though I slacked off for 3-4 days I actually kept up/passed my previous week's goals on certain exercises. The second time through some of the exercises I tried to do 2-5 on my toes and the rest on my knees. The decline push up is the worst. For this exercise you put both feet up in a chair and you do a regular push up...KILLS ME. Also with the pull ups, again, I do not have a pull up bar, nor a door frame to put it up in SO.. I rely on my bands. I really tried this time to slow my reps and focus more on Scapular flexion (making my shoulder blades go in towards each other), the same with the back flys.
So anyway, I finished it! I always feel such a sense of purpose lol when I can complete these things. When I see "COOL DOWN" on the dvd I always say YAY..lol
I don't really have a tip of the day. HOWEVER I did find a GREAT new product. It's called Fiber 1 80 Calories Cereal. It was on sale at our grocery and so i grabbed it. I've tried eating eggs for breakfast because its been said to rev up your metabolism when you eat lots of protein in the morning. But, I just can't get away from cereal. I love it, as well as pancakes. LOVE Pancakes, toast, or cereal for breakfast (not all at the same time lol) ANYWAY This cereal ONLY has 120 calories with 1/2 cup skim milk. Which is where most cereals start before the milk. It has 1 gram of total fat (0 sat or trans) 25 grams of Carbs which is a healthy serving. Only 140 mg of sodium (some frozen dinners have 400+mg eek!) and (the best part) 10 grams of FIBER! Fiber is So essential PLUS it helps keep you fuller longer. PLUS, remember waffle crips?! it tastes just like it!!! Some negative things about it : it can be pricey when it's not on sale (3.99 is a good price for cereal here :P :P :P) and the first ingredient on the list is " Whole Grain Corn. Yes Whole Grain IS good ..but.. SO MUCH of our diet is already including corn as an ingredient. Just something I try not to overload on. ANYWAY it's one of MY favorite cereals and I hope you can try some out soon!
As Always, Stay Posted, STAY HEALTHY!
I'm thinking about having some type of giveaway to a reader next week. (I"m thinking maybe a magazine...or a small package of macadamia nuts from here in Hilo) Feel free to post a comment below on what you think sounds good!
