Yesterday was Day 2 in my quest to document my workouts and progress toward better fitness and health. Simply writing things down helped allow me to beat the previous day’s numbers – substantially in many categories (although my fitness tracker had a different opinion and I didn’t reach my goal numbers of 20k steps a day).
Regardless of the fitness tracker numbers from the Very Fit Pro app, I felt much better about my workout – and my Live-It was better too. After I got back from work in the morning, I cooked up a slow cooker with a variety of beans and black rice – and ate it several times during the day. Once with chicken and a couple of times without. I’m happy with that, as I work towards living on a more plant-based diet.
Here are the workout numbers for the day:
Crunches – 125, 130 = 255
Pushups – 17, 18, 20, 20, 20, 19,15 = 129
Mini-Trampoline Jumps – 111, 120, 125, 101, 101 = 558
Sit-Ups – 60, 66, 50, 60, 50 = 286
Planks – 105s, 106s, 111s = 322s = 5m 22s
Squats – 10, 12, 13, 10, 11, 11 = 67
Cardio 21m21s, 21m21s, 21m21s = 64m 3s
Not sure that I will be able to improve on all the numbers every day and am fairly certain I will get 20k steps today, but I do feel like good progress is being made towards getting back to under 10% body fat. I still have a long ways to go – I tested in at 18% bodyfat on my latest DEXA scan last week (which I swear I will write about real soon – just after I write about the one that I took in November 😉
What did you do for exercise today? Has anyone been able to hit the slopes yet? I’m hoping that I will be on the hill at Mammoth Mountain at this time next week – skiing and snowboarding my ass off … I just checked their website and they are already 100% open!!!
BTW – My Seattle Seahawks are playing the Minnesota Vikings in Seattle tonight on Monday Night Football. The Seahawks have been playing well lately – and are always tough at home, so this should be a welcome diversion while I get some work in tonight. #GoHawks
