Amber and I worked out the same muscles! Yeah!
I did my calves, and it was hard sometimes. But good. When I'm in the clean room at work I stand a lot, especially when I'm cleaning bottles or tanks, which worked out perfectly. I too came up with a lot of different variations of going up to my toes and lowering down. My favorite was probably going up for 8 counts, holding it for 8, and lowering down for 8. I could feel the burn!
And I also noticed a difference at the end of the week! I think my calves look and feel stronger.
I also recorded what I ate, and I notice I should probably cut back on nighttime snacking. It's nearly always popcorn or tortilla chips. Late at night I tend to crave salt.
I've been noticing a lot of physical changes this cycle, it's fun
