Last night around 9:45pm (when Jacob should have been sleeping), he overheard me telling Danny that I held the plank for 3 minutes and 6 seconds. Jacob yells out, The plank is easy! It’s not hard to do!
To which I responded, Alright then, get up and let me see you hold a plank that long.
Danny told me that I shouldn’t be getting his heart rate so late at night when he was supposed to be sleeping. I just ignored him. I have been working so hard on holding my plank for over three minutes, and I wanted Jacob to see how tough it actually is to hold a plank.
Jacob proved me wrong. My 11-year old got out of bed, and held the plank for 3 minutes and 25 seconds! What?! Danny says it’s because he doesn’t weigh anything and has less weight to hold up.
Then, Jacob says to me I could have held it longer, but you told me to stop and get into bed. Way to go, Jacob. Maybe he’ll be my plank coach
Last night after dinner, I realized that I still had quite a few calories left, so I splurged and had a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg. The egg shape makes it so much better.
The calorie count isn’t horrible – 170 calories and 4 grams of protein. I’m sure it has lots of sugar though! Whatever. It was delicious.
- Plank #22 – 3 minutes and 9 seconds (getting better but still not as good as Jacob!)
- Stationary bike – 17 minutes, 3.05 miles
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- Zumba – 60 minutes
My calves are a bit tight from yesterday’s run, so I foam rolled for about three minutes this morning (that’s all I had time for!), and I rode three miles on the bike this morning instead of walking on the treadmill.
My BodyMedia band finally broke all the way off the other day, but luckily the replacement band arrived the very next day, and it’s pink!!
It actually felt weird not wearing it for half a day because I am so used to it, but it was nice to get a little break from logging on my food on their website. I still write it all down on paper though. I write my food in a notebook and then I input it into the computer when I have time. It might seem a little time-consuming, but it really works for me!
We have plans to go to my dad and stepmom’s house tomorrow for dinner and to dye Easter eggs! We always have a great time getting together to dye eggs, and my dad usually comes up with the best decorating ideas. He is very secretive about it – he usually hides in the corner and won’t let us see what he’s doing.
And yes, he sketches his egg designs out first.
Have a great weekend!
- Do you keep track of what you eat or calories? I tend to slack a lot on the weekends, but do a great job during the week.
- Do you dye Easter eggs?
- Any workout today? Plank time?
- Any plans this weekend?
