Planks with a Friend

My BFF is here from Maine for a day or two, or maybe five. We were talking about getting back on the wagon. She's going to start when she arrives back home next week, I'm going to do 12 minutes a day this week, everyday, and I really mean it this time. She agreed to help me onto my wagon today and did planks with me. 12 minutes of 1 minute planks and we're done! Yay! I need to figure out how to have an exercise pal or two here in my neighborhood.

The past two weeks I've improved a little with my exercising habits. They digressed big time during the winter, but looks like it's about over. I've tried to log it here, but lately when I link over to this blog address, google Chrome gives me some warning and a page comes up saying that this website has been inserted with a malware distributor or something like that. So I haven't been posting. But then it just barely let me on fine, so not sure if by typing this I'm going to have my identity stolen or something. Hope not.

I'm really really going to get back on the wagon this week, cause all the snow is gone now now I can go for a jog. Just got our family pics taken. I'm not as trim as I would like, but I'm being patient with myself. I'll get there. I have before, I know I can, and I will!

12 Minutes A Day

I talked to my little sister this past weekend. She's been bodyrocking ever since I told her about it two years ago. Made me realized I need to stop being a slacker. I can give exercise 12 minutes and still have home be my main focus. So, my new goal is: 12/6. Translation: 12 minutes a day 6 days a week.

Day 1: When Natalie went down for her nap this afternoon, I did the following 12 exercises for 1 minute each (tried to alternate a resistance exercise with a cardio).

1) Push Ups (eccentric style)
2) High Knees
3) Dead Lifts (two 30# dumbbells)
4) Mountain Climbers
5) Ab Ball Pass
6) Jumping Jacks
7) Bicep Curls
8) Fast Feet (kinda like a quick sprint in place)
9) Chair Dips
10) 180 Jump Squats
11) Superman T w/ two 5# dumbbells
12) Jumpy Frog
