I know I said that I'd be a better blogger while my hubby's away, but so far this week I've been terrible about blogging. Work and doctors appointments and taking care of business (a certain song comes to mind...) around the apartment seem to always get in the way. =(
But tonight, I've decided that I MUST finish this blog post before I go to bed (I'd already be in bed, sleeping, if I weren't still up waiting for Josh to call). So here goes!!!
On Saturday, I had lots of free time on my hands while I was baking sweet potatoes (recipe to come), so I decided to be responsible and good to my body by exercising. I also promised myself that I'd eat really well while Josh was gone, but that quickly went out the window! Anyways, back to the exercise.
I did this (which I found on, none other than, Pinterest).
By the way, if you're not following me on Pinterest, you should be. And if you haven't received an invite yet...well, by golly, leave me a comment here begging for one!!!
Anywho, this little workout left me feeling accomplished and sore the next morning, but I haven't had the time to do it since. =( I gotta get on that tomorrow night.
Along with my Pinteresting workout, I've been using MyFitnessPal to keep track of my calorie intake/burn throughout the day. I actually really love MyFitnessPal...maybe even more than Livestrong's MyPlate! Don't get me wrong, MyPlate is fantastic, but I've always wondered why they didn't count reps instead of time when it comes to stuff like crunches and push-ups. Thankfully, MyFitnessPal counts reps, but one thing I'm confused about is why it doesn't count calories burned from strength exercises like crunches and planks. Bummer. If anyone has tips on using MFP or wants to keep each other accountable on MFP, let me know!
