(The music to Paula Cole's Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? playing in my head)
It's official! I've met my first goal - 10% (25 lbs) of me is gone! With my Tuesday evening weigh in at Weight Watchers I'd lost the exact amount needed to reach my 10% goal. I put my running man (from the Live Life Active Challenge) and my 25 lb weight on the 10% ring, both of which I received at the meeting.
I'm still not able to ninja my hands back while in the pike position. Dr. Cheng is always saying that the pike/plank builds up your core. My core may be fine but I don't have the upper body strength to do it. I've never had upper body strength. Back in high school I wasn't able to do the chin ups or pull ups so there's no way I could be doing that now. Is weightlifting the best way to build upper body strength so I won't be so shaky?
The combos flowed well this week. I'm so ready to put them all in sequence next week. I just don't feel the buzz in my fingers at the end of the last move.
