Hi there and welcome back to the fold. I am new, but NOT new to the diet cycle. First thing I did when I joined SP was quit watching Food TV, they'll just have to struggle along without me. And no Man vs Food, gosh I enjoyed that program! And I got rid of all my web food-blog bookmarks. I'm trying to do at least one thing a day to untangle from the food addiction path I've been on. Most recently I threw out all the hidden goodies in the kitchen. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Simple philosophies work for me. If I get too complicated I know I will throw up my hands and go back to square one. Hang in there!
Well for me, it was a really toned lower body that just looked way out of proportion to my upper half. I had toned thick thighs and calves and my upper body was still kind of frail and floppy looking. My upper half was a lot smaller than my lower too, so I had an extreme case of pear-shape going on too.
Push ups & planks did wonders for my arms and shoulders, and plank twists and bicycle crunches help my back, obliques and abs. Now that I'm biking again, I am also working my upper body to even out the legs.
I've been good lately, just trying to detox past Easter! There's candy EVERYWHERE and I just find myself picking and picking at it, haha.
When you run a lot, make sure you balance out some upper-body workouts too, or you'll get something called 'joggers butt', lol. I notice it at the beach sometimes and I was guilty of it years ago, too! I balance out my cardio with push-ups and I'm attempting pull-ups but right now I can just do pull-downs. I'm also weight lifting when I get chances to do so. 2722 days ago
