We celebrated very-late-Easter last weekend, as our teenagers were away over actual Easter. Our dear friend who happens to be a rabbi is always thrilled when lambie cake falls after Passover. I did a big Easter goody clean out, shoving it out the door with friends, but quite a bit remains. I mean, I can't deep six my kids' candy, can I? Unless it starts getting me in trouble.
Today Is The Day when my DH and I are sworn to get back with our Five Factor workouts (5 minutes cardio, 10 minutes weights, 5 minutes core, another 5 minutes cardio, 5 days a week-- catchy or what?) Which we did. Although I was weak as a kitten. If I tried to lift one of Greta’s kettle-bells it would smash me flat. I was flailing around with 10 pound weights, but tap squats are tap squats, right? My core is in pretty good shape, if I do say it, compliments of Zumba.
I am also planning to woman up and come up with a Tom Venuto-style food plan, which involves (1) journaling out what you're going to eat and then (2) eating it. Novel idea. Something (we hope) in the range of 1600-1800 calories, 30/40/30. I am about 5 weeks out from my 1 year blogversary. It would be nice to see a bit more progress by then. I am also following along with Jen’s 30-in-30 Challenge: 30 minutes of exercise a day, 30 days. Good for Day 1 with an Appalachian Trail walk with a friend this morning and 5-Factor this evening.
Check out Tom Venuto. Anybody else read his stuff? What do you think?
