40 & 400

Try to hold a one arm plank (up on your hand, not elbow) for as long as you can.  I was able to do each side for 45 seconds on Monday, going to try and improve my time.  Or if your a beginner, do the plank and rotate below for atleast 1 minute
Other thank some planks on Monday, I haven't done anything this week.  Been busy with the Reflections program at my kids school.  No better way to repent than with 40 divebombers and 400 lunges.  Here I go to make penitence.

Game On

I've been off my game this week.  I think it's partly Nicole's fault - cause she's on her game and been going to spinning class every morning, I think she somehow absorbed all my umph through the phone.  I also slightly attribute it to being female and it being the week of the month, but I'm going to get moving again today.
Clearing my mind of "Can't" (...for a few weeks anyway.)

Cardio Purgatory

I just did these exercises throughout the day - 10 here, 10 there, until I reached 100 for each:
  • 100 burpees
  • 100 jump lunges
  • 100 deadlifts
  • 100 assisted pull ups
I seem to be having a harder time setting apart a time to workout, so this strategy worked good today!  I'm done with the burpees and jump lunges, off to finish the rest.  :)

Sleeping Baby Workout

We have a guest sleeping in the basement for the next month, so my morning workout area had to be moved to our bedroom. This morning my baby was still sleeping but I was able to do ZWOW 36 from yesterday without waking up my baby by changing the 4 point hops into 4 point lunges.  Give it a go, it's a silent low impact workout.

It really doesn't take much to get in shape cause it's mostly diet!  Watch what you eat, and with regards to that, it's not about will-power, it's about creating the right environment.  Get your home food environment right to help you resist temptation (aka don't buy it!)
