So, today I effectively detoxed from the pizza overdose I had yesterday. I drank a crapton of water last night and had a good four hours and two venti coffees at Starbucks today. Yeah, I know coffee isn't particularly "healthy," and drinking two larges might have been overkill, but that plus water really gets things moving and helps get the water retention off of me. Also, I'm working on my post-NaNoWriMo-writing, so I'm at Starbucks a lot.
I successfully completed day 8 of the 30 Day Shred today, and admittedly went back to level 1. I am totally not ready for level 2... my arms are sisstastic. I did push myself harder on level 1, and I figure that's what I should be doing. I can do virtually the entire thing at the "hardest" modification, except I can't do normal push ups. In fact, I can't do both sets of push ups in knee-push up mode. I really am struggling with my lack of upper body strength. Any hints or clues or tips you have for increasing my push up ability would be greatly appreciated. Like, arm muscle fizzy drink. Or spreadable arm muscle cheese and sissy-no-more crackers. Or perhaps Push Up Pop Tarts. Or something.
Also, I wanted to share a little something cool with you guys, so check out my vlogadoodle below! :)
