okay, the spring shape-up has me motivated and i guess this log will help me stay that way.

my main goal is the abdominals - working for a six-pack. other than that, i'm somewhat confined by a repetitive stress injury in both wrists (or is it carpal tunnel syndrome? - depends on who you ask). but, i plan to do push-ups and some weights in addition to the ab work.

Apr. 4
15 minutes of stretching, crunches and push-ups
90 minutes of yoga (a pretty relaxing session)

Ah-ah-ah! No slacking!

Hey, neil, doesn't it hurt your wrist to do pushups? :shock:

How did the acupuncture go? Did it work? I found it worked for me for some things, but for others it only relaxed me. Good stuff, though.

:)

sorry raven, i've been slacking. :? :wink:
thanks for the encouragement!

i do the push-ups with fists, so there isn't much stress on the wrists.

acupuncture did wonders for my wrists 3 years ago, but the guy i was just seeing doesn't seem to be as effective (or maybe my wrists are further damaged now). so, i'm going to find a new practitioner soon. i hear you on that, it's effective for some things more than others, but always relaxing.

back to the log...

apr. 12
10 minutes crunches/push-ups
