Off my Game a Bit but Totally Nailed my Step Goal!!!

Today’s 44 was all about the core.  I did a sit-up with a twist.  Start on your back with the soles of your feet together and your hands clasped over your head – 


From this position, sit-up, twist to the right while bringing your arms down to the right –

Return to the start then come up and twist to the left –

This was a good move because to complete all 44 reps I actually had to do 88 sit-ups!!!

Today was a running day – 1.5% incline – 9 miles in 69:29 + 1.75 miles nice and easy.  

Tuesday is pretty much always a treadmill day for me because I like to watch Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor and I don’t feel guilty when I’m running at the same time!!!

Guess What?!

I guess today’s goal needs to be 20,000 steps so I don’t turn into a slug for the rest of the day!!!

My schedule feels off today (and it’s only 7:30) – I think it’s because I have a sick boy.  Even though my boys aren’t little any more, when they are sick they seem younger!!!

Poor Hunter – came home from school yesterday completely fine and then about 2 hours later he was totally miserable – terrible headache and a stomachache.  He has been sleeping pretty much nonstop since  6:00 pm yesterday evening.  Hopefully a day full of rest and liquids and he will feel much better again!!!

Maybe if I run up and down the stairs all day checking on him I will reach my 20,000 step goal – taking care of my sickie and getting steps – sounds like a game plan for the day!

Happy Tuesday!
