Journal Entry – July 14 through July 20

July 14 thru July 20– Days 191 thru  197

Great Weather

When the weather is great, it is the best time to do some workouts outside without worrying too much about heat exhaustion.  New York has been cruising with some really nice days that are supposed to continue this week so I will be outside trying to get to this 5K doing a full run this week.

Measurements

I found a really cool video to help with where you should measure for consistency.  I found it after I took my measurements for this week of course, but that’s ok.  My measurements will change somewhat, but it is better to be accurate than not.  You guys know, I have had challenges with measurements.  The Myotape helps loads but this video gave clear ways to get accuracy.  Take a look.

What the…?

Speaking of measurements, I weighted in and I gained another pound. Check it out

Weight: l lb (gain)

Waist (in inches): 1/4  loss

Chest (in inches): no change

Right Arm (in inches): 1/4 lb gain

Left Arm (in inches): 1/2 inch gain

Right Thigh (loss in inches): 1/4 inch gain

Left Thigh (loss in inches): 1/2 inch gain

I lost a smidgen on the waist and other places that I don’t document above, but overall I could have done better.  I’m not too bummed.  I worked my bum off this week and I am very proud of my workout achievements. This is only week three on the new program.  I will persevere!

Live PiYo Class

I took a live PiYo class this weekend with my coach who is a certified instructor for PiYo.  I loved it.  It was challenging, but it was so good.  If you can find a PiYo class locally, then you should try to take it.  It’s for both men and women, athletes and anyone looking to increase their flexibility.

Try This

I have to tell you that the pineapples as a garnish to this (as shown in the picture) is really good!  You can choose an alternative fruit, but the pineapple is a winner.
