Pretty hot Day - motivation is where?

Friday, August 22, 2014

Last night was amazing, husband and I went to a Dinner Theater for his birthday. We saw 'Elementry - sherlock holmes' it was great.

Dinner there was amazing, I was so sure I was going to blow my calorie counting. But I stayed on track! I went with the healthiest option for me. 6 oz roast beef (I could only eat half! So much meat) roast potatoes (it was 2 small baby potatoes) and two florets of Cauliflower and two florets of Broccoli. Sooo good. I was even able to have dessert. A chocolate mousse (which is naughty of me being diabetic but I splurged). Woke up this morning with a beautiful diabetic number of 4.2 mmol or 75 mg.

Today however, is so hot and muggy I have no energy. I am sweating doing absolutely nothing and I still need to work out! Need to get that work out in but I do not want to hurt myself doing it in this heat.

Anyone got a good idea for easy impact exercise that won't kill me in this heat?

    The 11 minute chair cardio work out is really good. Might try that. Come on girl you can do it.

    Glad you had a fun time out! SP has some chair exercise videos that should be pretty low impact for you. You can just do it nice and easy! I dislike humidity greatly and we are having a humid day here too!

    I would say try to find some videos on here that focus more on upper body strength training and toning rather than trying to get a full workout in. I know there's a video that's like 9minutes that works the arms and shoulders that's really good.

After nearly causing myself to faint last night by exercising in extreme conditions, finding upper body and toning videos are what I plan on doing today instead.
