Making Myself Better

What I did I spend most of the day doing so far? Making this skirt.

I love run recaps and daily life posts. One thing I always wonder about is what you do for strength? Maybe more detail on that?
The reason you never hear about my strength workouts is because I haven’t been doing any except for some abs here or there, and I never type out the details for those, I just say, “I did some ab stuff.”
But since you asked…
I did some ab stuff before working on my skirt. 
First I did 10 v-ups to a boat pose hold. Then I did a set of hundreds, which didn’t burn at all, so that was a waste of a minute or two. Then I did this thing where i did an elbow side plank hold a 5 lb weight in my other hand. First I extended the weight up then brought it down to touch the mat for 5. Then I started the same, but brought the weight under my body toward my base arm for 5. Then I switched sides.
Then I thought about how I had stopped doing push ups because I was scraping so much, and then I stopped scraping because my wrist was hurting a lot and then my allergies got bad and a runny/ stopped up nose + a dust mask is asking for trouble. Since I still can’t scrape for maybe another day or two, I decided to give some push ups a try.
Remember, I have to do them with my hands on a desk because of my wrist.
First, I wanted to see how many I could do since I haven’t done any in so long. I did 25, not bad for taking about a month off, though I was up to almost 40. I decided to match with v-ups, so I did 25 of those, too.
Then I did 15 of each.
Then I cut my spaghetti squash in half.
Then I did 12 of each.
Then I decided that I needed food because I was getting shaky.
