A big Wake Up! for me this morning. Went whitewater rafting yesterday, and the guide took a pic and posted on FB. oHHH. eMMMMM. Geee. I forget that I sometimes take 10 pics of the self and choose my fav. shot PLUS I know my own best angles, but someone else can come along and snap a pic in whatever angle they fancy and BAM! Trouble spots make themselves known for the whole world (or at least my friend list!) to see.
Not bitching though, because I really got a good, unbias view of my shape, and now I really know what is out of place. My obliques are outta control! I have been flailing on working out my abs and today really scream-reminded me about that little daily omission. Other than that, my legs are bulking out a lot; I’ve been running but skipping Yoga, and I see now how much the long periods of stretching lean me out. Lastly, my upper body needs some serious definition; I’ve never seen the need for chest exercises, but I am definitely going to incorporate some in my routine. I’m seeing this:
30 min Yoga
2 Mile run - mountains
Superset running with walking lunges
as many crunches as I can stand, rotating styles as follows: standard crunch, 90 degree knees, straight legs, bicycle, lowering slowly, standard sit-ups
10 min yoga cool down
On the daily: Balancing (handstands, tree pose, arm balances, etc.), Splits Conditioning
Here’s the dreaded pic, because I am making myself accountable!
