Today was a good day! Woke up weighing 101.0. I was able to see my chiropractor before doing cardio and training legs this morning.
I did 500 calories in under 60 minutes, using the stairmill, with no shortness of breath, no chest pains or foot pain! (sometimes cardio really hurts, but today was a great day!) I felt amazing during my weight training session too.
I did legs – see below for my below for my leg routine today. I was on track with all my meals – but a huge bowl of pasta or any kind of noodles would be good right about now!! lol! But, I’m hanging in there, no problems.
But the greatest part of today is ALL OF MY HARD-WORKING CLIENTS ARE working so hard, doing so well! and looking amazing! I’m so proud! (with the exception of one, who was 30 minutes late – but she still kicked butt when she finally showed up!)
