Fitness Challenge: Day 14

Today was a fail in the workout department–I have a cold, I am stuffed up and breathing constricted. I knew it was coming on yesterday but I was hoping that with having the day off I would be able to kick the cold faster. Sadly, no. So I didn’t workout today. By no means does … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 13

Today was a good day! All around!! Got up early (my body woke me up at 7am even though I am on vacation) and I caught up on a few tv shows. Then I got my husband up and we worked out together–we shared my 10 pound weights and the step. We did walking lunges … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 12

Hello gentle readers!! Yesterday wasn’t the big cardio event I was hoping I could sneak in, but it was my first day of vacation and I was going to the Nutcracker Market with my boot camp friends. The day started at 9am at the Randall’s parking lot. We got to the market about an hour … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 10 & 11

I am going to be honest, yesterday was a fail. After my very bad day on Tuesday I went into work for 8am and didn’t get home till 8pm. I didn’t workout. I don’t feel horribly guilty, my work needed me for that day and I knew I was going to get right back to … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 9

Today started off really great–got to my 7:15am boot camp and put my everything¬†into the cardio elements to get on the road to Tough Mudder. It was an arms day, so lots of biceps, triceps, back and shoulders. I don’t work these out as much as I should, so today was a lot of sweating, … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 8

Today was an all-around active day! Work was demanding–I moved heavy freight for a few hours, I got sweaty and gross. I moved heavy objects all around the store and walked to and fro.¬†This is my day at work more often than not. Then when I got home, I had some dinner and then went … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 7

Today was a good day for exercise, thank you day light savings! I got to sleep in (for me), catch up on one of my shows and then workout! I used my step and my 10 pound weights and followed a written down program from my boot camp. It was mainly leg based, squats, jumping … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 5 & 6

Yesterday was an interesting and ultimately exhausting day, hence to no blog entry. I was in my second day of GM meetings for work and at 11am we went to a golf range. Let’s be absolutely clear about this–I am not a golfer. I am a mini-putter at best. I was clear with the guys … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 4

Today I was up early and in a meeting from 8am to 4:30pm. Good, good times. Today was a challenge for movement and eating. I am in a meeting room where their idea of breakfast is a donut. Thankfully they ordered a somewhat healthy lunch, but snack of Halloween candy abounded. Very rough, honestly. Plus, … Continue reading

Fitness Challenge: Day 3

Today started off pretty great! I got to sleep in a little (hello day off!), did some work around the house and then went to my boot camp at 11:30am for something outside my box: Latin Spice dancing. Let me tell you how I am not the dancing type. I don’t have rhythm. I don’t … Continue reading
