An Unexpected Consequence

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I'll not leave you wondering. I'm talking about forearm callous from my daily planking. I just noticed it the other day. Oh well, they'll be my badges, proof that I'm putting in the work. I've only broken two minutes once, but I hope to again before the month is up. What, if any, unpleasant consequences have you experienced on your weightloss journey?

I just completed workout 15. I'm almost halfway there! The workouts are a little longer now and a few of the exercises are really tough. Mountain climbers and stride jumps are really difficult for me, but I do my best. I suspect my form on the climbers will improve when there's less mass to get in the way. And skipping rope is a killer on the knees. I can only hope the exercise builds the muscle up around the knee, so it will continue to get easier.

I did really well tracking food accurately and honestly this week. I need to enter yesterday's spaghetti dinner. I ate more than I should have. Pasta is a weakness, so I'm glad my husband dislikes it and we rarely make it.

    Planks are tough! You've definitely earned those badges! emoticon Last week I made spaghetti using a spaghetti squash. It was a little different, but definitely satisfied the craving I was having. emoticon

    I love that you are considering the "badges"- I feel that way about the callouses on my hands from the weights.
Keep up the good work!!

    spaghetti is a weakness for me too. 2 oz. always seems like such a tiny amount. I usually try to bulk up dinner with a huge salad beforehand.

    Hard to imagine not liking pasta--that would be helpful.

    Badges are good. I have callouses on my hands from doing deadlifts. They are a great reminder for me of how strong I am, even if the rest of my body is not showing it yet. :)
