I'm disappointed in myself. I took 5 days off from running and 3 days off from working out in general. There was no reason to take that break, other than the fact that my parents were in town and I was spending time with them. I SHOULD'VE taken 30 minutes off each day to go for a run. But unfortunately you can't change the past and must move forward.
Today I weighed myself and saw that I had gained 5 pounds during their week visit. No, I'm not joking or exaggerating. I'm not blaming anyone but myself. 5 pounds is a big deal to someone who is still working on losing their post-baby weight.
Today I laced up my sneakers and hit the sidewalk for what was a very hot and humid mid July run. I ran 2 miles and headed home. I was about to jump into the shower when I talked myself into doing some ab work instead.
I pinned this the other day onto Pinterest and pulled up the exercises. Instead of doing the recommended 25 reps, I started off with 15.
- Reverse Bicycles
- Crunchy Frog
- Hip Butt Ups
The moves were straight off AB RIPPER, from P90X. I may not have done 300 abdominal exercises but I did do 90, and that's a good enough work out for my first day back.
