For simply targeting specific muscle areas, I have found 2 exercises that I love!!!! As you know my general routine is HIIT, elliptical and weights. These are ones I like for problem areas:
Cassey Ho inner thighs 5 minute challenge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJyZhOJ2Tag
and weighted oblique crunches which I found in Jim Stoppani’s 6 week shred
I have done oblique crunches before, but adding weights and holding them overhead while doing it…wow…I am feeling it today!
Just thought I’d share 🙂
Last night my awesome cousin and her husband took us to an awesome champagne bar! Very cool. I am not a big drinker, but I do like champagne, so ordered a champagne cocktail with strawberry something in it. SO GOOD! Then also ordered a scrumptious s’mores crepe…may be the best thing I ever ate. I seriously wanted to move the place into my basement.
Because of that and the birthday party we had prior to, my foot was not wrapped at all yesterday and I am feeling it today. I feel so old between the tendinitis and the food allergies or whatever is making my body react, but the fact that neither is serious is awesome…can’t keep me down. 😉 No complaining…really…when I was on the elliptical the other morning after the sermon I was listening to they showed a clip of a girl that was sold into human trafficking. The degrees of suffering in this world are so great…I was reminded again that I have no right to be upset about little things in life…at least not dramatically upset…a little frustration may come out at times. No use creating drama when there is enough real drama in the world already.
And my tangent post is done, but if you have a champagne bar anywhere in your vicinity, I would highly recommend!
For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!
I can see my stomach again! 🙂 After a couple months of the back and forth with my belly (and the rest of my body) and food reactions, I can see the muscles and my waist again. I know it has to do with avoiding specific foods, but I think another part of it is that I have to record my food now to turn into my allergist. No one wants to turn in a list of a million calories a day. 😉
So…I ventured to the scale. My BMI is back up to 20.6…which is not where I want it to be…my goal is still to have it below 20. BUT, in light of everything that has been going on with my body, I will take it. It had been above 21 not too long ago. I am not ready to try my body fat measurements yet…but will get there soon.
The latest on the allergy front is that my doctor thinks it could be food dyes. I am wondering if anyone out there is allergic to more than one color of food dyes, because it seems as though I would have to be if that is the connecting factor. Only time will tell.
As usual, any helpful info is always welcome. 🙂
This was a fun cake to make. The fondant was a little bumpy…still working on the art of fondant. The photograph wasn’t the best either, but I had to post it regardless…it was so fun to make! And my big boy loves it, so that is all that matters. 🙂
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
– Psalm 23:6
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.
