Accomplishments and craziness

bridge run
I can now do at least a ten-count for a side plank on one hand instead of perched on my fore-arm. Mind you I can't get from fore-arm to hand, but I can get onto hand and stay there for a few seconds.

I wore The Pants today. Size 13, low-rider jeans. There's a lot of spandex involved and definite pressure on the sciatic nerve, but I was able to zip them up, go to brunch, sit down and eat.


Low-riders

Then the crazy set in. This was my normal, once-a-week, "budgeted" splurge brunch at Chow, and I'd already been to the gym to do weights/core-work/AND treadmill.

BUT after brunch, I decided I had to compensate for the extra calories and went for an hour bike ride before the shopping. I'm trying to avoid that kind of thinking. I don't think I'm on the verge of exercise anorexia just yet, but it's a bad habit to get into.

B&W covers a multitude of sins. Now I'm starting to have the face vs butt obsession. I don't want a fat arse, so I'm getting a stringy neck instead.

Well I think that you look amazing no matter what. Stringy neck is not so bad... ;)

Yay for core strength! Sadly, I doubt I'll be able to take Pilates this term. *sighs*

Of course, according to my friend, sometimes-trainer and all-around-girl-crush, Peggy, this isn't as awesome as I'd thought because going up on the hand works the shoulder more than the oblique, and while that's not a bad thing, I've been considering the side-planks an abs/obliques thing, rather than an arm/shoulders thing.

Hey, I say ANY exercise is a good thing.
