Finally, finally, finally, I went to the hairdresser! After months of neglect, I got my hair texturized, deep conditioned, and styled. Oh and I also got close to 2 inches of split ends chopped off! The result…
In food news, I’ve been doing so-so with my whole emotional eating episode. I would say, five out of seven days this week, I did really well. Friday night was a bust (apple blossoms) and Saturday I ate even after I felt full (chocolate covered almonds). BUT, today is a new day and my will power will improve. For example, today, I spent more than 5 minutes in the kitchen trying to cut a portion of a frozen oven pizza because I didn’t want to cook and potentially eat the whole thing! HAHAHA. Let me tell you, frozen pizza is not easy to cut with a knife!!
Tomorrow I start the PIPES Challenge. As I mentioned before, I am taking part by doing the 100 pushups challenge. Today I did the “initial test” where you are supposed to do as many good form pushups as you can to see which program to follow. Now I have been able to do 20… sometimes 30 consecutive pushups in the past but have they all been in proper form? Probably not. Today I accomplished 11 solid and consecutive pushups. This places me in the third column, as seen below, and this is what I’ll be doing in the A.M.
REST 60 SECONDS BETWEEN EACH SET (LONGER IF REQUIRED)
|up to 5 push ups||6 – 10 push ups||11 – 20 push ups|
|SET 5||max (at least 3)||max (at least 5)||max (at least 9)|
Okay I better stop typing now so I can conserve my upper body strength for this challenge!
