WooHoo!!! I didn’t have to do my 43 at 5:15 this morning. My alarm started shrieking at me at the dreaded 5:15 and since I knew it was supposed to have snowed some, I decided to make sure school was still on for the day. Complete surprise (and pure joy!!!) when I saw that our district was closed today!!!
We didn’t have that much snow but the wind was horrible!!! Chris said on his drive to work (at about 5:40) he had periods where all he could see was white – scary!!!
OK – back to the 43!! Today I did 43 decline push-ups.
In the video that Jordan helped me with the other day, Jordan did a few of these push-ups with just his toes on the stool. However, I had to do 43 and that wasn’t going to work for me!!! I put my shins on the stool (I know – much easier!!).
Either way, a good challenge today! I only had to stop once for a quick stretch (after # 26) so all 43 went really quickly!!
I wanted to do some kind of work-out today. I’ve pretty much decided that the only rule the DR gave me that I’m going to follow is the NO RUNNING (that one is the hardest for me to obey anyway so I figure I’m doing pretty good)!!!
I did another Pilates DVD – Mari Winsor Pilates. I did 3 of the 4 15 minute segments: cardio burn, flat-ab blast and butt & thigh sculptor. Only the cardio broke any rules and the few places where she added in jumps, I didn’t jump!!
I’m hoping that the boys will play Monopoly or some other fun games with me on our bonus day! Jordan is overjoyed that Christmas break started a day early and Hunter is a little bummed about it – I’m with Jordan! (and I detest snow!!!)
Happy Thursday (snow day)!
