Happy May Day!
It finally isn't snowing today (though it is blowing sideways and raining torrentially).
I have been a slug again... what am I going to do with myself? lol
My husband has been working a ton (meaning gone more than 24 hours at a time) and out of town... I think we've had him home for 1.5 days in the last two weeks. Needless to say, I'm tired... no, exhausted. I am getting lunches packed and dinner on the table and the kids to bed and school and me to work... but the exercising and the desire to eat right... gone.
So, a couple of co-workers decided to do this crazy squat challenge in May (starting today of course)... working up to 250 squats/day. Yeah, crazy. So, instead of just joining them, I thought... I need to work on my abs... let's make it squats and crunches.
Today was Day 1. Before work, I did 50 squats and 50 bicycle crunches (on each side). Tomorrow is 55 (no sweat!).
I still need to get on my treadmill - since the weather is not looking like spring is coming here this year. But, hubby gets to come home tomorrow (for 2 whole days!)... so maybe I'll try that tomorrow - unless I get energetic tonight.
My plan for May?
*The squat/ab challenge daily.
* Eat 5 servings of fruits/veggies.
* Increase my cardio exercising (to 5 times/week by May 25-31).
Oh, and someone else mentioned a No-Weigh May (not weighing themselves the entire month...) I'm not sure I could do it (and I do WW, but I wouldn't count those weigh in's) - but could I avoid the home scale all month?? Could you? Something to think about...
