Full on upper body workout & abs for today - Modified BFL. Asthma was a factor in doing floor crunches. Switched to using the Bowflex with the incline bench and was able to complete my abs exercises that way.
Plans For April:
I'm planning on running in the La Jolla Shores 5k, which is a part of the La Jolla Half Marathon event. The half marathon is hill heavy and there is NO WAY that I'm ready for that. I can barely make it up one steep hill in my own neighborhood. There's a 3 hour time limit for the half marathon, and I don't doubt that I can do it well under 3 hours, but it's the hills on this course that are daunting.
I'm also taking this time to re-evaluate my nutrition. I haven't been as careful as I should be and it shows. I know what I need to do, I just need to do it. Duh.
I've just found out that a friend of mine, who was considered to be in the "morbidly obese" category, had gastric bypass surgery last year, the day ater we met with other friends for lunch. I don't know what size she was or what her weight was, but she's now down to a size 3. She had always been on the chubby side back in high school, but the weight really came on after kids. She admits to the crummy food she was eating and knows that she has to really pay attention to her nutrition and exercise to keep her new body. The "slap in the face" realization that she needed to do something was her doctor's visit and being borderline diabetic, hypertention, and other weight related issues. Both of her parents died in their 50's due to weight related health issues. In her case, it definetly was a matter of nurture over nature. She grew up with bad eating habits. I haven't seen her yet but we're attempting to get together soon.
