I going to be honest with all of you...yes, I have been slacking off with working out BUT for valid reasons:
1) I had cramping & discomfort, so I consulted my Midwife! She gave me the okay to start working out again :)
2) My daughter caught (gulp) head lice. Luckily she was the only one infected in our house.
3) My husband's ship finally set sail & I had to adjust to no phone calls & very few emails. :(
So anyway, after my appt on 7/8/09 I was in such a great mood because I had learned that I only gained 1 pound since my previous appt (6 week prior). However, that was short lived when I received a voicemail from the school nurse who informed me that I needed to pick my child up because she had head lice....Can we say ewww?! I know I went overboard by completely disinfecting my home by washing EVERYTHING & vacuuming EVERYDAY! The whole disinfecting fiasco definitely cut into my workout time because by the time I was done with doing my daily chores, I was exhausted & an emotional wreck. So now that all of that is over (thank god) I am now working out again.
My diet has been poor due to the fact that I have been completely exhausted & eating "bad" is easy. LOL. I am trying to get back on the ball, so bear with me. I had way too many rest days in my 30 Day Challenge - soooo I had to start over. To avoid any strain that might cause cramping I have decided to decrease the intensity to low. Another change I have made is to add light weight training using the following schedule:
Do 3 sets of 10-12 Reps
