Day 10 and it was all upper

I completed my upper body workout and felt pretty good. Eating was healthy except for 1 piece of chocolate and I didn't felt guilty!
Speaking of feeling gulity when we treat ourselves to either a non nutritional meal or having too much of a nutritional meal. Why do we feel so guilty, if we're consistently on the ball? Why can't we indulge and enjoy those moments guilt free? Answers, comments welcome!
Adam suggested that I do a "Stair climbing challenge". I've been rolling the idea around in my head, but before I do, I've a few things to prove and make a gaurentee to those who would rise to this challenge.

Out to prove:

  1. That you can lose fat faster from your mid section and tone the lower body, by doing the stairs than any other cardio workout.
  2. That you can reduce or eliminate your leg workout and still build and tone your calves, quads and butt.
  3. That you can lose inches off your legs and see the celulite disappear.

I'm documenting the number of times I do the stairs, what alteration and variation I use, how I incorporate my arms to get an upper body workout in the process. My measurements before and after of my legs and finally pictures. I'll be sharing this info soon.

I will have someone video me while doing the stairs and share it with you folks one day.

OK enough said for today - time to hit the books!

Diane, am still so much in awe of youl doing those stairs. I can´t imagine what hard work that is. You certainly deserve all the rewards you reap. Am so proud of you!

Diane, if you do a stair challenge, you may want to consider those that have access to only 1 or 2 sets and would have to go up, down, etc, rather than up, up, up. I wish I had access to 12 or 13 flights! I know stairs are an awesome workout.

Thanks for your comments ladies and Deb, I'll keep that in mind - then a bit of running variation would be added for the lack of consistent climbing.

Cool info on the stairs. I keep thinking of you doing the stairs like Rocky. Way cool. Can't wait to see your awesome results. I like the real world application of it. When I'm better, I think I'm gonna give it a whirl.

A stair challenge would be great. I just need to find the stairs.

HI Diane, stopping by to see how you are doing. hope all is well with you. must be busy!? I too would love to do stairs workout, just need to find a place to do them. I am thinking of waiting until warmer weather and find some bleachers at a local high school.
