The back felt a tiny bit sore this morning but it felt like it was just from having been worked out.
I took my measurements and starting photos:
Thigh: R= 20, L= 20
Upper Arm: R=11, L=11
You can tell these are new pictures because my hair is not as messy.
I did 40 minutes on the elliptical to warm up and then did the first ChaLEAN Extreme Workout (CLX from now on).
Burn Circuit 1
Sumo Squat with Hip Lift - W 7.5 R 12 (I'll try 10 next time)
Lunge with Posterior Fly - - W 5 R 12 (I'll try 7.5 next time)
Push Up with Leg Lift - 12 (on toes)
Dead Lift with Posterior Fly - - W 5 R 12 (I'll try 7.5 next time)
Lunge with Core Rotation - - W 7.5 R 12 (I'll try 10 next time)
Bench Press and Leg Lower - - W 7.5 R 12 (I did not do the leg lower)
Squat with Side Bend - - W 7.5 R 12 (I'll try 10 next time)
Forward Lean Lunge with DBL Arm Posterior Fly - - W 5 R 12 (6 each leg I'll try 7.5 next time)
Chest Fly with Hip Lift - - W 5 R 12 (I'll try 7.5 next time)
As you can see, I kept the weights light to make sure my back was okay with it. I will increase weights on Tuesday if I'm still feeling good tomorrow. So far, I'm feeling good.
After I got out of the shower, I was ravenous and had an Ezekial English muffin with some light string cheese and crushed red pepper...sort of like pizza. It hit the spot.
Then I baked some chocolate Vitamuffins and for fun added some unsweetened coconut. My husband will enjoy the mounds-like muffins for breakfast this week.
After the muffins came out of the oven, we headed over to the home and garden show going on at the nearby fairgrounds.
While we were there, I got an EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation) treatment on my lower back from one of the vendors. I figured why not, it's not going to hurt anything and maybe it will help. No, I did not buy the unit for $300 but I did take a pamphlet.
We didn't buy anything, but on the way out we saw the Monster Bus:
I don't know how much the rides were but we didn't take one.
We stopped at Jack in the Box and I got a chicken fajita pita.
We'll be taking DH's grandma out for dinner tonight. We'll have to see how she feels and what she wants.
Have a great rest of your Sunday and a great week!!!
