Day 12 of 21 Day Challenge: Happiness Is The Truth

April 04, 2014 2 min read

It’s crazy to me that the challenge is more than half way finished. Looking ahead, day 13 and 14 are both rest days – I don’t know what I’ll do with myself, I really don’t. I’ll have to go to the gym or yoga, or maybe go back to one of the earlier Hiit workouts that I really liked. OR since it’s finally nice outside, go for a nice long walk like I did today. I was out and about all day today, which unfortunately involved a lot of driving, but at least it was sunny, and when Happy by Pharell comes on the radio, it’s just the perfect spring atmosphere. I DO feel like a room without a roof, Pharell!

6)   Right oblique V abs

Modifications:
  • Loved the touchdowns, so did those for all of my cardio. Used a hefty dictionary as a sandbag.
  • Used a piano bench instead of an equalizer
  • In the guide it says there are 17 exercises for today, but it ended up only being the first 8 – definitely not complaining, but I did them another time around just to really get that burn.
FOOD: For breakfast I made oatmeal and added cinnamon, a bit of brown sugar, some apple sauce, and a handful of chopped walnuts. I had a whole foods lunch date, so I ate steamed veggies and roast potatoes from the hot bar, a coconut milk latte, and of course, a spelt flour pretzel. So the cauliflower pizza didn’t quite quench my pizza craving, and I thought it would be better to give in a bit now then splurge and eat a whole pizza on one of the rest days this weekend. SO, I went to the pizza place that has really small $2 slices and had one of those for dinner. THOUGHTS:
  • I can’t decide if I like doing the exercises at the same time as them, or doing opposite exercises. There’s merits to both formats so it’s interesting to compare Lisa and Sean’s styles.
  • I feel like I have washboard abs, but there’s just a load of laundry in – I guess that’ll be this week’s goal, to take out that metaphorical laundry.
