90 Day Challenge – Day 45 FitTest

Wow. I’m wiped.

I was expecting a better improvement on my FitTest, honestly, but I guess I can’t be too much disappointed with my results. Although, I improved on everything, except burpees. But I think I had better form on these than I have in the past, so there is still improvement.

Overall, my improvement was 22% from my most recent FitTest, but 78% from my very first one. I guess I can’t really complain about that, can I? No, no I cannot.

Progress takes a lot of time, and a lot of work. It is so slow, but it’s good to see that I am getting better, slowly. More capable, more fit, more healthy.

Let me know how you all are doing.

Chin up. cheers!

90 Day Challenge – Day 44

I feel amazing after my cardio today. I don’t even understand how I feel this great about it. It wasn’t better than normal or anything. But I worked hard and sweat a lot, and now I feel like I can do anything!

It’s so great to feel this way after so long of feeling bored and discouraged.

I’m really looking forward to the FitTest tomorrow. I’m hoping to kick its butt. I’ll post the percentage change from my previous FitTests when it is over. Wish me luck!

Hope you all are doing well. Cheers

90 Day Challenge – Day 43

This workout was really interesting and different. I had just been thinking, I haven’t done a lot of work on my triceps, so I was worrying about improving my tricep dip scores for the upcoming FitTest. Lo and behold, there it was today. Although, the FitTest is in two days, so that doesn’t really help a ton.

The most exciting part of today’s workout was that I did 3–THREE–one minute planks, including leg lifts. I don’t know if that actually makes it harder, but I can only presume that it does. I was so impressed with my body and how it continues to improve and do things I never expected.

This is really encouraging.

Back tomorrow for cardio. Maybe I’ll shovel the driveway for that, since it’s been snowing all day!

Good luck all. Cheers

90 Day Challenge – Day 41

Today’s cardio was difficult. So difficult. I don’t know what happened over this week, but I got weaker and weaker. At least, I feel like I did. Stairs were bloody awful. After yesterday’s leg workout, I shouldn’t be so surprised, but I could barley make it up the stairs after a few goes. My legs were burning.

My body is sone done with this week’s workouts. Tomorrow is a rest day, and also weigh in for my next diet bet. You can join if you want to lose 4% in 4 weeks, just follow this link:¬†http://diet.bt/1hzecf0 and sign up! It’s a great motivator for me, and maybe it would be for you as well.

Keep it up, all. This is hard work!

Cheers xx

90 Day Challenge – Day 40

“Love your legs and booty” workout again, and it was super hard still. I mean, I knew it would be, but it’s hard to remember pain until you are really feeling it. Like, this is so much worse than in my imagination!

Holding a lunge for 30 seconds. Per leg. Twice. It’s just cruel.

And my tummy is still ‘stiff’ from those body builders.

Whine, whine, whine. Is it rest day yet? I’m ready.

Hope you are all feeling a bit better on your journey’s right now!

Cheers xx

90 Day Challenge – Day 38

Today was 10 minutes of body builders. That’s about 10 minutes too many of these. I only did 26 of them. I’m going to pretend that that’s a really good number! Almost 3 every minute…

Most of them, however, I did not do modified (on my knees) but full length (on my toes). Kinda makes me look forward to my cardio tomorrow.

Good news is, yesterday I submitted my final, official weigh in for my diet bet, and my winning weight has been verified. I’m so happy that I didn’t lose my money! I’m also looking forward to seeing the final results for the whole group. I’m a bit nervous to start another one, because it’s proved to be a good way to hold me accountable…and I don’t like being held accountable! I want to eat all of the things!

I’ll make myself sign up for another one. There are a few starting next week. Next week also marks the half way point, and there’s another FitTest! I’m really looking forward to it. I think I’m going to kick it in the butt!

Hope you all are doing well.

Cheers

90 Day Challenge – Day 37

More mixed up cardio today! I added a few new segments, and I’m really seeing stamina improvements on some of the exercises I normally do. I was able to keep a great speed for jumping jacks during those segments, and I noticed a speed improvement on how long it takes me to run up and down a flight of stairs.

I feel pretty good today, since I officially won my diet bet! So, I’m trucking right along. It’s so encouraging to see some actual changes and goals met. It’s almost like there’s a purpose to all of this!

Cheers xx
