Woot!! Woot!! We’re at the halfway point folks!!! Time to update us with your 28 Days/10 Minutes a Day Fitness Challenge progress for Week 2: Days 8-14!!
And don’t forget to check out our FB Events page!! The home, outdoors, YouTube, DVD, app, and gym workouts continue to roll in!! I tried a new 10 workout myself last night!! And, if you aren’t on Facebook and/or want more ideas, check out the Fitness Playlist I created on my YouTube channel to share fitness videos that I like!
As for my week, I’m getting back into the groove of morning workouts … but still not getting up as early as I’d like. I went from a 6:30 am rise time to 6 am. So, that was good. But, my goal this week is to get back to 5:30 am. If you remember, I’m also doing a personal 365 Days of the Word challenge with YouVersion’s One Year Bible. So, I do my reading and prayer first (along with my cup of coffee ;)), then workout.
WEEK 2 RECAP
Day 8/328: Hot Yoga / Vinyasa Flow at Younique Yoga studio in Sparta, NJ (75 min). I hadn’t been to hot yoga in 2 months, so I was bit nervous. But, I didn’t do too badly! I definitely was tighter than I had been, but I’ll work out the kinks soon (I hope ;))!
Day 9/329: Lauren Brooks Joint Mobility Warm-up and 12 Minute Full Body Blast x2 (29 min).
Day 10/330: Run on treadmill – 5 min warm-up; then 5 min at 5 mph and 10 min at 5.5 mph at 1.5% incline; 5 min cool down (25 min total). I would have liked to run longer, but I was short on time. I know it’s better for me to get a shorter workout in the morning than try to wait until after work for a longer one and end up doing NOTHING!
Day 11/331: Angie Miller Kettlebell Bootcamp with 15 and 20 pound bells (45 min). I was using the 15 lb bell for the entire workout, but am progressing and working towards using the 20 lb bell for the whole routine.
Day 12/332: FitSugar’s Treadmill Pyramid Intervals to the 22 minute mark, then 5 minutes to cool down. I was short on time again!!
Day 13/333: 60 seconds x2 sets of bicycle exercise for abs, 15 recline leg lifts, and 20 “superman” back extensions in the am (5 min); Tamilee Webb’s Abs of Steel in the pm (10 min)
Day 14/334: Cardio Crush Workout by BeFit on YouTube (10 min)
Feeling good!! I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do when my 365 days are complete. Will I keep going or start taking off days? Hmmmm … I’m feeling like I’ll keep going. But, I’d like to challenge myself in a different way. Maybe run 365 miles in a year … or, what I’ve really been thinking about is doing a different fitness challenge each month for 12 months. Or … maybe a year long daily yoga challenge as it’s amazing to be able to do things with my body that I’ve never been able to do in my life! Hmmmm …
Okay my peeps!! How did you do Week 2? Give us the rundown of days 8-14!!
What victories did you achieve this week?
I started including a 30 minute Tae Bo workout this week. Aiming to do more than 10
minutes a day every day next week
days 8-10: 10 minutes of burpees, days 11-12: random aerobics for ~15 minutes (squats, jacks, lunges), day 13: 20 minutes of zumba, day 14: burpees
This week was spinning class everyday and strength training (back and legs) on Saturday and Sunday. Starting to incorporate green smoothies again and I’m feeling good!
Day 8: 12 min morning cardio from tumblr and practice lacrosse
Day 9: 25 min run after school
Day 10: started a program on the NTC app. Did a 30 min workout
Day 11: it was so beautiful skipped NTC and went on a 40 min walk-run interval
Day 12: incredibly hard 45 min NTC workout.
Day 13: 15 min cardio killer + 15 min about burner on NTC were both difficult and focused
Day 14: wasn’t feeling well but did a 30 min workout on NTC
Progress is hard to come by… I don’t think I’ll see it until the end. But I feel good
Last week was mostly walking with some bodyweight circuits thrown in for fun. I’ve been extra tired lately……so I’ve been taking it easy. I’ll more than likely do something fun today like Zumba.
I just wanted to add that since I’ve been exercising everyday, I feel like I have to do it…..if I don’t I think I’d feel weird. Thanks Shelli for helping me get back on track!
Everyday was a 10 minute stretch/15 min jog/5 minute “sit-ups” combination. I did skip Wednesday and Thursday as class started back last week so I need to figure out how to better incorporate exercising into my routine.
