Workout Challenge! – Add these in to your workout this week to ‘spice’ it up a bit.
- 25 cruches
- 25 squates
- 25 jumping jacks
I like to do jumping jacks as a warm up, much like in the 30 day Shred. I also throw these into my workout to make it more of a circuit. 10 minutes on the treadmill, 25 crunches, 10 mintes on the ellipitcal, 25 squates, etc.
Sweat it out Ladies!

Good job everyone!
Today was day 1 of my half marathon training schedule. Mondays are going to be my long running days since I don’t work that day. I ran 4 miles today at 6.1 mph. After I was done running, the woman on the treadmill next to me started asking me running questions. It felt really good to have someone ask my opinion on running related things. I have always wanted to be a runner and it is nice that I am headed in that direction.

@jessjess: I’m thread stalking but I just had to say 4 miles at 6.1 ?! Thats awesome, I would be the lady asking you questions 😉

Good job ladies! I will definately challenge myself to adding the sit ups, squats and jumping jacks. I didn’t work out last night because of the lack of sleep Sunday night + hardly any food for two days. But, I got a good night of sleep last night, and plan on having a normal amount of food today, since my baby (re: dog) is doing so much better and I actually have an appetite today. Hope everyone has a great week!

Good job, everyone! I am suffering from a HORRIBLE cold right now that’s preventing me from doing much but dragging my sorry butt to work and then collapsing at home. I’m feeling a bit better today, though, so hopefully by the midweek I can be back to my regular gym routine. Trying not to indulge in too many bad foods while I’m inactive.

@Mrs.Mittens: aw thanks! It is nice to see the scale move when I know I’ve been doing good…. unlike this week where it is at a standstill, hopefully things will change by Friday.
I like this challenge, I usually get lazy after cardio and make twenty-seven excuses to not tone / do weights and I know that is bad. So abs and squats it is!

Oh I’m definitely going to add the strength/toning stuff in this week! Sometimes I do squats in the bathroom at work LOL. I’ll do 5 or 10 every time I go to the bathroom and it adds up throughout the day for sure.
I’m also starting a running streak. Runner’s World is doing a running streak that started on Thanksgiving and is continuing to New Year. Basically you’re supposed to run every day to keep your streak alive but it doesn’t have to be a long distance, it can be as little as 1 mile. I found that I set big goals for myself and then when I don’t feel like running the 5 or 6 miles I planned on that day it’s easy to talk myself out of it. This streak is giving me motivation to at least get some running done. Running 1 mile every day is definitely better than planning on running 25 miles a week but not doing it. Yesterday I ran a little under 3 miles and today I’m doing a 2 mile loop with my husband 🙂

Doing well! I walk a ton yesterday so I skipped working out so I could wrap some presents (still not done!). So it’s back to the gym tonight! I’m also trying to get myself back in the routine of logging my calories.

I’m having a really tough day today. The # on the scale was not good and I feel very bloated today. I cheated Saturday and had 2 small slivers of pita bread (and hummus) and 2 mini cream puffs and I feel like all of my hard work has been wasted. It’s frustrating that such a small cheat can have such a huge impact. Luckily we have a workout with our trainer tomorrow so hopefully we can get back on track. *sigh*

@Mrs.SplatterPaint: Don’t feel bad! You can cheat in fact you need to! And it sounds as if you did it in moderation and so you should NOT be feeling bad about it! An extra 5 minutes on the treadmill and you’ll be good!

Oh no I completely forgot to weigh in yesterday:
Statring: 156.5 lbs
Week 1: 157.1 lbs
This week: 156.3 lbs
I promise that I will not forget to post next Monday:) This week I plan on kicking up my runs, I really hate running on the treadmill though, so I am going to do some of my JM and Insanity videos.

I feel like an uber whale today. went up a pound on the scale. had sweet and sour chicken and wings this week. I need to just get salad mix, but I have no time to grocery shop.
I will either have a salad, a subway sandwich, or a meal replacement shake for lunch today.
I saw a picture of myself from an event we had at work last night and let’s just say, I am not impressed. I mean i love myself, but I didn’t love that picture.

Not feeling so fabulous this morning….I think my hormomes must be off because I am just in a BAD mood overall.
Scale read that I was up 3 pounds this morning – which I REFUSE to beleive can happen between Friday and today.
