Day 8


And thus begins your second week!!  Keep on keeping on and the pounds will come off…


Breakfast: oatmeal, cinnamon, banana, honey, 1 cup coffee with 2% milk


Snack: cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, pecans (all unsalted) 2 clementines


Lunch: salad: lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, feta, oil & vinegar, broccoli


Snack: 1 slice whole grain w peanut butter, red seedless grapes


Dinner: This strange (but yummy) concoction that my mil makes- sort of an eggplant/chicken parmesan. It’s not going to help anybody lose weight, but will keep me from wanting a midnight snack! Certainly not something to eat very often. Also had asparagus and broccoli


Accomplishment of the day- I did NOT consume any chocolate in any sneaky way! (maybe I have to write it out like that to keep myself honest. Didn’t expect that I would be so sneaky…)




Used the thigh chisel video as my warm up: https://vimeo.com/37502944 (I found myself seriously procrastinating on this today. But, somehow, it got done)


1-Stationary Lunges:  (or split squats- same thing)- hold 8lbs, repeat lunges 15x


2-On back on the ground, with legs in table top- Chest Flies- 8lbs 5x  (I made this MUCH easier today because my chest muscles were still sore from 2 days ago. Other than that, this is the same workout)


3-Knee Push Ups 10x


Repeat 1-3


4-Upright Row 8lbs 15x


5-Overhead Press 8lbs 15x


6-Lateral Arm Raises- alternate arms 8lbs 10x each arm


7- One arm Tricep Extension 8lbs 20x right then left


Repeat 4-7


8- Forearm Plank 20 seconds


9-Double Crunch 30x


Repeat 8-9


This was the first day of your second week. Keep kicking your butt! (she says to everyone else as she says it to herself)
