March Exercise challenge



Recommended Posts

Haven't seen this yet for March, so here goes. Same rules as always, not so much a challenge as a way to keep us all motivated.

I took this weekend off. Needed it badly apparently.

This morning I ran 2 miles @ .5% incline in 16:47. Ran another 1/2 mile @.5% incline in 4:47. Followed that with 10 minute cooldown and 20 minutes on elliptical.

Tonight will be heavy upper body supersets. Maybe some more cardio, hopefully.

I'm in! I've been going to the gym on a regular basis. This will help.

Yeah, it helps having virtual accountabilibuddies.

Of course, some are just annoying like luluc.:party:

Unfortunately, yes. Got 8" of snow last Thursday. Supposed to be in the 40's by Wed. Gotta love MN weather.:party:

I'm supposed to be working on the day shift schedule. Had a headache from the time I entered the dept this morning.:hurray:

I did 45 min. on stationary bike. 12.79 miles on Random Hill. Man, it was KILLER this time. All big hills and only small rests. I thought I was going to die!

Last night was heavy upper body supersets and they KILLED. I went to bed last night and my arms were already getting sore. It's good to get that once in awhile.

This morning, up and in the fitness ctr at work for cardio again. Ran 2.15 miles @ 1% incline in 19:47. Followed that with 10 minute cooldown and 20 minutes on elliptical. Gonna try for another 35 minutes elliptical today. Tonight will be leg supersets.

Today: A very very slow walk. 4% 1.42 miles 30 minutes.

I have not exercised for over three weeks. I still have some crazy healthy issues going on. Lab results are in and I have a meeting this Friday with my OBGYN doctor to discuss the results. My hormones are so out of balance.:blush:

I've been mixing it up a bit - I've read Fraser (my 13 year old son) the riot act. He had a shocking game of basketball saturday, he could barely keep up, he was obviously having trouble breathing (he's been slack with his asthma meds) and is having a dry spell as far as scoring baskets goes. So he just gave up and even cried.

We have GOT to get him fitter. He's 76kgs (he's only an inch or two shorter than me so he's not tooooo bad yet) but he's well on the way to being obese and his physical condition is appalling. He has no motivation to do anything, he's inherently very very lazy, thank god he's academically quite gifted becuase he puts no effort into school work either.

soooo... this is relevant, I promise .... we bought some Tae Bo dvd's and the Aussie Biggest Loser boot camp one. Brutal, lol. I found muscles i didnt know I had, I did the whole of each DVD, Fraser did a solid half an hour and was obviously shattered so he stopped then. He's been good - even enjoyed them. I also had Eliza begging me to ride to school, so fit in a couple of 8K runs as well and my normal circuit routine. I've been kinda tired, wow, wonder why?

Speaking of circuits, its time to switch it round again. My body responded really well to the sandbag weights, but the benefits are waning now. I'm moving onto more Body Pump style stuff - got a 4DVD pack of Jari Love's ripped series coming in the mail $20 on ebay YAY and a $10 aerobic step that as $9.99 on ebay - double YAY.

Whilst waiting I"ve done a few Body Pump classes at the gym - i'd rather do them at the gym than at home but I just cant make it to the classes dependably round my schedule. I found my first one disappointingly easy - I hadnt done one for probably 2 years and have a hazy memory of burning pain in the thighs, lol, but I could squat and lunge all day these days. Note for next one, need heavier weights.

Doing Cardio Coach on the treadmill tonight - Pump is supposed to be a cardiovascular workout too but I doubt my heart rate went over about 90 - I didnt break a sweat.

Tomorrow I'm starting a baskeball referee course for the McDonalds Hooptime which is a school kids comp - I'm going to ref a few of the littlies games during the school year.

I had an awesome run! Did my 3 min. warm-up walk and then ran for 37 min and I got the whole 5K in. For the first time! Then I walked the reset of the time out.

I can't believe I did a whole 5k! :blush:

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
