This morning Maria told me that I must be having another baby since my tummy is "getting big and sticking out." (I'm not pregnant.) Well, that is just added incentive to stick to the plan Bill and I worked on Sunday. He's such a gem. Always ready to help me with a new exercise plan. I picked 4 weeks because it seems doable, and it will carry me through the conference.
Here's what I came up with:
Snooze button meditation: I put my yoga mat next to my bed so that when the alarm goes off, I can take my temp, hit the snooze and then roll to the floor for a 7 minute quieting exercise. If you think I don't need a quieting exercise after 8.5 hours of sleep, you are wrong! I've never been great with morning prayer, so I decided to start with meditation which for me is really a listening prayer.
Sat and Sun aerobic exercise either running or swimming. Since they are whole body workouts, I don't need anything else.
Tues and Thurs aerobic exercise on the bike for 30 min. I'm embarrassed that I couldn't figure out the itunes store, so I have to have Bill help me the first time. My playlist is 30 minutes right now, so I just ride until it's done. The problem with the bike is that it doesn't work my abs (hence the poochie belly) or upper body. On days I ride the bike I'll also do upper body workout like 10 pushups every time I wash my hands.
Food and water: We've acquired some bad food habits this summer. :( Now I'm back to drinking tons of water all day long instead of soda or koolaid or coffee... Also, I find that if I only let myself snack on fruit after breakfast, I do much better with food overall. This week we have melons and peaches. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
