90 Day Challenge – Day 18

Once again I am sick, I’m trying to take it easy for the most part, but its hard to sit still. I like to go go go….

How I did today:

Today instead of a run, as I am still feeling as though I wouldn’t make it more than a few feet… I went for a walk with my mom who is visiting, and with my daughter in her stroller. We thought we would walk to the mall…. I figured it would take us about an hour to get there…. BOY was I wrong… now I know for next time… the mall is a lot closer than I think πŸ˜‰

Time: 36.37

Distance:2.75km

Good Luck and see you tomorrow!

90 Day Challenge – Day 17

Day 17 – Bikini Body Mommy Challenge (www.bikinibodymommy.com)

Im sure you all saw, but last night i updated my last blog post, as I was feeling so horrible that I hadn’t done my workout for the day because I am sick….So I went for a nice walk instead, I didn’t break a sweat, and I didn’t push myself, but I did get some fresh air and it was really nice… Today is a new day…So here we go again… the new big 8. We can only improve right?!….

175693_287884774650186_956066403_oWHAT TO DO: Think of this workout as a game against the clock! Complete each exercise for specified time. Give it all you’ve got, then rest and record how many reps you completed. After you complete the given exercise, REST for 1 MINUTE — then move on to the next exercise, and REPEAT.

1. SQUAT SWING
2. PUSH-UP “T-STANDS”
3. LUNGE KNEE-UPS
4. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
5. BICEP CURL “3 REP ROUNDERS”
6. STEP-UPS
7. STRAIT-LEG SQUAT THRUSTS
8. HUNDREDS

***It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you don’t rest for more than 1 MINUTE in between exercises.

How I did today:

I am still not feeling well, and although I did better in some of the sets today, I did have to skip the squat thrusts, and I was taking a bit of a longer break around the end of the workout. But I made it!… barely! I also Googled the hundreds and watched a video. last time i did 25 of them… well, not really because I was doing something completely different, this time… 130! ( thanks Kim!) hopefully i start feeling better soon, I really want to reap the full benefit of these workouts.

I am curious about the chair people are using for the step ups. so far I have used one kitchen chair, and one step stool… They both seem very tall to me, but I’m 5’3 and 2/3rds…. everything is tall to me… I am finding it fairly unstable and i really don’t like doing them. 😦 Suggestions are welcome!

results:

1. SQUAT SWING 52
2. PUSH-UP “T-STANDS” 33
3. LUNGE KNEE-UPS L:28Β  R: 25
4. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS 58
5. BICEP CURL “3 REP ROUNDERS” 1. 21 2. 25 3. 18
6. STEP-UPS R:20Β  L: 13
7. STRAIT-LEG SQUAT THRUSTS SKIPPED
8. HUNDREDS – 130

Good Luck and see you tomorrow!

90 Day Challenge – Day 16

Day 16 – Bikini Body Mommy Challenge (www.bikinibodymommy.com)

So today is cardio day… I am beginning not to mind these days… that is probably because there isn’t snow yet! I however am not feeling too well, and although I managed to do my workout yesterday… barely. I don’t feel it would be environmentally friendly for me to attempt a run today.Β  If I am magically feeling better, I will try and get out and do something later on… perhaps a walk. I know I need to head out grocery shopping later… that counts as something right? err!

1240642_415376151901047_1486958585_n***UPDATE***

So just after 9pm, I was feeling a tad better, and I have been feeling super guilty all day for not doing my run this morning, so I tossed on my jacket, grabbed the hubby and we went for a walk. It wasn’t anything special, but I do feel better knowing at at least I got out there today.

Duration: 49 mins 59 seconds

Distance: 4.01km

 

 

Good Luck and see you tomorrow!

How I did today:
These are all new exercises today! So I had to print out and read each of the above images so i knew what I was doing and even still i think i might Google some videos to see others doing them. The first day is always the hardest..lol.Β  Today is also weight in day and measurement day.Β  I have weighted myself already, and I am of course disappointed that my weight hasn’t changed int he last two weeks… But I am also very aware of the reasoning. I have been eating garbage, and drinking like a fish.Β  However, I do feel like I am still getting stronger. so, for the time being, I am just going to keep on trucking. I will have to do my measurements later on today, and if I’m feeling brave, ill take some more pictures. πŸ˜›

1. SQUAT SWING 42

90 Day Challenge – Day 13

Day 13 – Bikini Body Mommy Challenge (www.bikinibodymommy.com)

I am still feeling pretty exhausted. Maybe its because of the fitness test from yesterday… maybe it’s because I have been going pretty much non stop for the last week. Today is my daughters 2nd birthday party… and I want it to be awesome!Β  cupcakes, balloons, streamers, hanging decorations… my house isΒ  blinged out! And even tho I feel like I am going crazy with things to do… I am going to get my run done first! That way, i have the rest of the day to party it up!

How I did today:

Today is a bit of a quick post, I’ve got so much to do to get ready for the party…. Today my run was not so stellar.Β  I did a 40/60 run~walk as my back is bothering me. Better not to push it and be able to work out again than to push it and not be able to work out for a week πŸ˜›

Time: 41:50

Distance: 4.28km

 

Good Luck and see you tomorrow!

So today is the day we do our second fitness challenge.Β  I don’t know if we are supposed to take measurements, or photos. today… so I probably am not going to. I have all my start pictures and measurements.. I kind of want to be surprised at the end…. haha or disappointed! But seriously, I am hoping to beat my scores from last time, even tho I am seemingly partially injured with my pulled bum muscle…. so weird!
