Wednesday, March 21st Workout - Abs Day C - Upper, Lower & Obliques Plus Stretch

Yes! "D" days are done! I got a great abs workout and I have a new exercise I really hate and it's called the Oblique V-Up! I couldn't even do the full version and I still hate it! That thing is hard and hurts (in a good way)!

I also did great on steps and floors today despite being at work. I decided to walk the work stairs which was going up and down from the first floor to the third floor every hour which kept me on track for the day! Too bad I won't be able to do the same Friday because there will be a group in the church but I'll find some solution.

For the last two days I've done over 12,000 steps, 14 floors and 5 miles of walking a day and today should be even better! I'm loving breaking down my cardio this way. I'm getting in tons of steps and way more mileage than I was with a 30-minute cardio DVD and the best part is my back is handling it just fine! At this rate I'll be more than ready for our long outdoor walks this summer and the planned hike in the fall up Mt. Ascutney!

Tomorrow I start "E" days with Push Day E!
