I did do one rep with the weights yesterday. I use 7 1/2lbs right now. I also did ab crunches on my stability ball.
In the evening, I kicked my husband's butt in Scrabble. First word, I used all 7 tiles and I kept getting some pretty good letters. ;-)
This morning, I did 40 minutes, 2 miles on the treadmill.
Today I'm collecting saliva and urine for very specific hormonal panels checking out my thyroid at the recommendation of my chiropractor. What a fun project. :-P I have an app't with ENT tomorrow and I think I will ask them to wait before doing a biopsy on the nodule in my thyroid. After getting the results of these tests, I will probably be on an iodine supplement and that may make the nodule go away on its own. If I can avoid having a needle stuck in my neck, I would much prefer it.
Here are some good tips from Denise Austin's email this morning:
Strapped for Time?
Having trouble squeezing in your workout? Try these tips from other busy Fit Forever! members:
Set your alarm to go off a half-hour earlier than everyone else's, and get your workout out of the way first thing!
If a mad morning rush leaves you with no time, try getting everything ready the night before (including lunches packed and clothing set out).
Don't be afraid to delegate some household tasks to other family members and make time for exercise! You shouldn't try to do everything all by yourself.
Cut down on kitchen time by making double recipes and freezing half for a quick heat-and-eat meal another day!
Take your kids to a school or park and walk laps while they play or go on a bike ride together.
If you can't fit in one 30-minute walk, break it into three 10-minute jaunts throughout your day.
Tone up with fidgetsizes! Do butt squeezes in the elevator, leg lifts at your desk, leg squats while brushing your teeth, tummy tucks while watching the news, etc. Do what you can, when you can.
Think small! Even if it isn't a full workout, five or 10 minutes of movement is better than nothing!
