So yesterday I couldn't go for my walk/jog so I decided to add some jumping jacks. I googled how many jumping jacks to burn 300 calories and there was a blog that said 10 sets of 30 jumping jacks burns 300 calories. True or not I did it mixed in with my other floor exercises. I timed my first set and it takes me about 30 seconds per set. When I tracked them today on spark people it said it was much lower in calories burned, but at least I did something to try to make up for not walking. Between that, shoveling snow, and new workout I am sore. But in a good way.
Today was the second day of ripped in 30's week 2 workout. Lots of numbers in that last sentence, whew. I felt like I got some things down, but got sloppy towards the end on one of the ab moves. I was so disappointed in my form that I practiced it so hopefully tomorrow I won't feel as awkward. That 2 minutes of cardio in plank, ugh! So hard, but I did it by just going to my knees between sets and I had to pause a couple of times during the last set of mountain climbers.
I am so proud of my eating. I've been eating mostly fresh foods and even starting to like boiled egg in my salad at lunch. It has to be chopped up. I can't just bite into it or I get sort of grossed out. I also have a similar problem with other things. Maybe I need to try that with grapes LOL. Somethings that I have really been into lately are celery with peanut butter and a little bit of mustard on my mixed vegetables. I also have been eating strawberries every day with bananas. Goodness!
Hoping to go walking tomorrow. I miss it! What healthy food combo have you been into lately?
