A few weeks ago we started a health challenge run by our personal trainer friend, Becky. I'm doing it to lose my last four pounds and get some abs back. Shea is doing it because I said so.
We get points for good behaviors each day.
- Two fruits (this is my most challenging item.Winter fruit bites it.)
- Three vegetables
- 64 ounces of water
- 30 minutes of cardio
- Strength training (abs, arm weights, holding baby)
Cardio has proved really challenging (read: non-existent) in Minnesota this week. It snowed. And it's cold. And being outside stinks.
My goal was to register for the Rock the Parkway half marathon after getting back into a healthy routine through the challenge. But working out while taking care of a wee little baby is proving to be more than hard. Especially when I start work and only get a couple hours a night with the little man (sob).
