My daughter is a petite young woman. She can put one hand on each of the Body Rock Challenger Bars, bring both legs up to a mid-air squatting position, hold it, and then lower both legs. I tried that…and…um…well…let’s say my feet left the floor about an inch for a sliver of a second. I decided to work on that. Of course, I weigh significantly more than my daughter, so I’m lifting a lot more body weight. I’ve been attempting this exercise five times each day. Today, I actually lifted both legs and held them up for about two seconds. Progress. Whatever, I’m getting a little muscle definition in my upper arms.
The problem here is that my core is not strong enough to lift my legs. With the exercises I’m doing with the Body Rock Challenger Bars, my core is getting stronger. I’m just going to keep on keeping on.
The Weight Watchers Freestyle plan is going well. I haven’t had a single craving or been hungry since I started on December 31st. Yep, I started on New Year’s Eve instead of New Year’s Day. I couldn’t wait to start moving forward with my healthier plan.
I’ve been trying to get more steps in. I track them with my FitBit. I’m trying to make 10,000 steps more days each week. So far, so good. I’m seeing improvement. My clothes are starting to fit better.
