No bueno...

No good news. This morning I was 200.4. However, I will say that I was not as strict as I wanted to be. I did get back into working out so I will count that for a win. Since Monday (wow, two whole days) I have stayed under my calories on My Fitness Pal and have done some sort of exercise.
 
Monday:
 
20 minutes intervals on treadmill
5 minues bike
5 minutes stairmaster
 
Tuesday:
 
45 minutes zumba
 
And YA'LL. I had never done the stairmaster before. I could only do 5 minutes! Sweat was literally pouring off of my head.
 
Today I did yoga. I really enjoy yoga but one of the main poses is downward dog. My shoulders and arms are the weakest part of my body so it is VERY hard for me. I decided to make it a challenge for the month of June.
 
1st 5 days: Hold downward dog for 1 minute
 
Each 5 days, I'm going to increase the pose time by 15 seconds. I should end at 2 minutes. That doesn't see like alot but I know it will be tough.
 
Beyond that my goals for the upcoming week are:
 
1. Workout 5 days
 
2. Allow only two cheat meals
 
3. Find a new healthy recipe
 
 
And just because he is cute.

Thanks for linking up with us today!

I just started getting into yoga too! What a great idea to build up your strength. You'll be there in no time!

I want to start doing all those crazy inversion poses I see but I am no where small enough or strong enough yet. All they need is a 200 + lb girl flopping over on the mat.

He is very cute lol
I have done yoga a few times as a morning workout and I work up a sweat but I feel so relaxed after.

Hello! Popping over from the linkup! I love to hate that damn stairmaster! It's so hard but you are right, it definitely gets the sweat moving and you can burn some serious cals on that thing! Great job!

I get so mad in Yoga when they say ok now relax in downward dog. THAT IS AN OXYMORON, PEOPLE. Downward dog does not equal relaxation.
