The end of the first month
Upper Arm 14in
I did this last night, Shaun helped (he could see my hands touch the 6in line). I did 25 total in 1 min. That puts me under “marginal” for my age.
As for my day, I started it off with a sprain toe. Not kidding, I kicked a chair leg hard, my toe went all the way back and touched the top of my foot. I cried so hard, so no walk today. So instead I stopped every few hours and did 4 “girly” push-ups. It was Shaun’s idea, I can do 4, so if I do 4 every few hours for a week, I will get better. So I’m going to try that. I also did some Supine Bicycle Crunches (http://www.acefitness.org/exerciselibrary/241/) that really burn.
As for good news, I got some today. Shaun go me a treadmill! So now there is no reason not to walk. I could walk in my under things if I want. Wall I need is shoes on. So hip hip hooray! I’m totally going to MAKE a treadmill desk! And the cool part is it only coat $50, we got it from a friend that is moving. Woot!
So tomorrow I will do the 1 mile walk test, and I will make up the step test Friday. I’m a month in, and 8 lbs gone. That’s 2x my goal, and I’m not going to stop now! Woot! Woot!! I could dance (if my toe would let me)!
