HealthyWage Challenge Day 3

Weight: 162.2

The easy progress has continued for me into Day 3. I am now down to 162.2 lbs for a total weight loss of 3.2 lbs to date. Again, I was somewhat surprised that I weighed less this morning; I lost even more weight than the day before. Today, I added some push-ups into my exercise and scaled back my run.

Exercise:

  • QTY 40 ea. Push-ups
  • Anderson Ab Workout:
    • QTY 25 ea. crunches
    • QTY 25 ea. toe touches (place feet straight in the air; then, reach up and touch your toes)
    • QTY 25 ea. leg lifts (keep your legs straight; then, lower you feet to 6 inches off the ground and raise your feet back to perpendicular)

  • QTY 40 ea. Boxing Crunches (I’m gonna call them boxing crunches). You lie on your back with your finger tips lightly behind your ears. Then you slowly lift your upper body off the ground. When you reach the up position, you explosively twist to the left and then to the right. Then, you slowly lower your back to the ground. The next time up you switch the order that you twist.
