The final day…

Well here it is, the big 3-0. Overall it went by really fast! and I have to be honest I was really looking forward to taking a day off tomorrow! Enter Kim: “Hey, I’m gunna go to body pump tomorrow! Me: “Oh! I’ll go!!” ::smacksforehead:: It was supposed to be a much deserved day off!! Ah, well…I like body pump!

But back to today….I was hoping for something super exciting; but for those of you who haven’t noticed yet, ‘super exciting’ is not in my repertoire. My dearest lil sis recommended I download this ‘workout trainer’ ap for my phone and do something off of that. So I did. It is a good ap for someone who is looking for a little variety in their workout. I just downloaded the free version, if you were wanting to pay for the ‘pro’ version it really could be like a personal trainer in your pocket (or as close as you can get). But for my purposes free was good! It had a number of workouts you could scroll through until you found what you were looking for and then it would talk you through it. The one I decided on was ‘The Energizer Body’ and it looked like this:

2 rounds of:

1:00 Wacky Jacks

1:00 Side Shuffle

1:00 Squat Pulses

0:30 Rest

2 rounds of:

1:00 Diamond Crunches

0:20 Rest

1:00 Tricep Dips

0:20 Rest

1:00 Kneeling Diamond Push Ups

0:20 Rest

0:30 Hollow Body Holds

0:30 Rest

1 Round of:

1:00 Squat Hops with 1/4 turn

0:30 Rest

1:00 Squat Hops with 1/2 turn

0:30 Rest

1 Round of:

1:00 Lying Torso Twist

1:00 Floor Knee to Chest Stretch

1:00 Cat Cow

1:00 Child’s Pose

As much as I wanted to, I didn’t forget my 30 burpees. I’ll tell you this, I will NOT miss those! And no chance I’m making it to 100!! I signed up for the 100 mile challenge at school with a few friends of mine so workouts will not become obsolete; however, I’m looking forward to a day off here and there…specifically Tuesdays! Hope everyone had as good a Monday as I did!! See you tomorrow for a BRAND NEW 30 days!! 🙂

Day 2

So I started day two verrry excited! I found this way fun looking treadmill workout on Pinterest that I couldn’t wait to try out! So I drag my trusty ole treadmill out of the back room (which was no small feat mind you), lace up my shoes, plug ‘er in, and get to moving. ::screechinghalt:: The treadmill doesn’t move. Straight up doesn’t work! 😦 Completely bummed! So I decided to put off my treadmill workout for another day. Instead, I combined 3 other workouts (also found on Pinterest :)) and focused on a little toning rather than cardio. Looked a lil like this:

First I did one rep of each of the plank workouts in picture one.  This is a workout in itself and it is no joke! I really wanted to be finished after the first time through just the plank exercises! If I add this in to another workout I’m definitely going to do it at the end rather than the beginning! I had to work really hard on keeping my supporting hand right under my shoulder; I kept wanting to make it easier by sliding my hand forward. Other than that, it definitely got my blood pumping. After that, I did 10 reps on each leg of the next 5 exercises. This was a little break from the initial planks, but concentrating on engaging your leg muscles and keeping your core tight allows you to really feel it! Next, I did the last nine pictures. I did 15 reps of the arms in number 1; 20 reps of crunches (10 per leg); 15 dead lifts; 15 tricep kick backs; 20 ‘tummy shrinkers’ in number 5 (10 per side); 10 shoulder presses; 10 sets of three lunges (front + side + back = 1 rep); 20 ‘bun firmers’ in number 8 (10 per side); and 20 ‘love-handle blasters’ (10 per side. Oh yeah, then I did the whole thing from beginning to end a second time through. It was a good workout and I’m certain I’ll be feeling it tomorrow! Who am I kidding, my butt is hurting even now, 30 minutes later as I’m sitting here typing. But that’s ok, I’m looking forward to getting my cardio in tomorrow!

Don’t worry, I ended the whole thing with my 2 burpees (I know, you thought I forgot!). Looking forward to day 3!
