I am trying to become more diligent in my cardio.
Yeah, I skip it A LOT.
So, I'm trying to make it a habit and do it the requisite number and length that I'm supposed to.
Also, last night, after coming home from my training session, I began dinner.
Husband was drinking a dark, foamy Guiness.
I broke down and had 2 Stella Artois.
However, they didn't have the wonderful taste nor satisfaction that I would normally feel from them.
In fact, I was quite blah about them afterwards.
What the hell is wrong with me?!
Maybe completely cutting out the alcohol from after New Year's until my first competition won't be all that bad.
So, I'm making an effort to do my cardio, correctly from here on out.
No half-arsed attempts.
Now, I must continue to work on flexibility and strength moves too.
Need to make those look effortless eventually.
Here are two of my favorite fitness routines from the 2011 Olympia.
Tanji placed 2nd.
Jodi wasn't in the top 5, but her routine just stuck with me as a favorite.
Now, on a crafty side note.
I tried making some t-shirt yarn from old tees.
I just starting cutting and continuously spiraled up cutting until you reach the arms.
I wound up with a big pile of ribbon.
So I began to roll a ball, stretching the fabric as I rolled it.
It tubes up and becomes skinny.
I gave it a try and made a little chain stitch.
Now I know that I can use it to make other crafty things
rather than just cut them into rags to use for cleaning around the house,
which we have TONS of.
