Year Challenge – Week 5 – Day 2 Complete!

Hello everyone! New Week, New Challenge! Still got jumping jacks but I gotta find something to help me make it easier. My cousin said that Victoria Secret would fit me in a sport bar that would hold me better when I jump. I’ll go check it out. I’ll also research online because jumping exercises are good cardio. Gets the heart moving.

No food diary today because I forgot to finish it yesterday. Oops.

Anybody want to join my cousin and I on this challenge, let me know. It’s free.

Week 4 – Day 2 Challenge Complete!

Hi. Sorry I haven’t been posting my challenges. I’m working on a website for FTC that I want to move the blog too. I’m trying to come up with the design and everything and so my attention has been of my blog here. I’m wondering if I should keep my WordPress blog up once the website is finished or use the blog space that the hosting of the site will offer. What do you guys think? I would really like your comments on this.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Ok so, I’ve started a new challenge this week that my cousin Braxton came up with since it’s his turn. He wants us to do;

  • 50 Jumping Jacks – That I modified because I’m top-heavy and jumping constantly like that hurts.
  • 50 Chair Dips – I’m really trying on this one. I’ve never done chair dips before. I’m going to try different areas in the house other than the chair in the video because it’s very difficult.
  • 25 Squats
  • 25 Mason Twists

I’m feeling the burn from this week’s challenge. Working out the upper and lower body in the same workout was a great idea.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Sad news. The gym that was done the street of my job was supposed to open on the 17th but now they pushed it back to the end of the month. AAAAHHHHH!! They should have sent a notice! My gym bag was packed and I was ready to go. Got to the door where the employees were standing and they tell me that they won’t open until the end of the month. How discerning! 😦

Challenge #2 – Day 5 Complete

Yesterday, I got home late but that didn’t stop me. After I had dinner, I waited for my food to digest then set to work. It has become easy to the exercises and my cousin says that my body has gotten use to doing them. I wonder if that’s a bad thing. I’m enjoying jump roping. When I do calisthenics during my workout, I think I’ll add a little bit of jumping.

I’m not posting my food diary today because I forgot to add some food to yesterdays log in. Whoops

Cya At The Gym-01

Challenge Week #2 – Day 4 Complete!

It’s getting easier to do these exercises. I’m happy to see that. At one point, I was jumping for a  minute or two without messing up. Felt great! The sit-ups has gotten easier, now that I’m doing the Jack Knife Sit-up. I used a throw that I got for my birthday last year this time and it felt better than the pillow.

I’m trying to think up of a challenge to do next week. I’m thinking about crunches. I don’t know if I want to only do crunches or add another workout with it. I’ll ask my cousin and see what he thinks. I wish one of the challenges could be bike riding but I don’t have a bike. 😦 I’ll try to get one this year. That should be one of my goals.

Last night was not a good night for me with dinner. I had to get Checkers because I was at this event that ended at 9. I wasn’t able to eat before then. Ugh!

Actually, I could create a page for my list of goals I want to accomplish this year! I forgot to do that! I’ll post that up later :D. That’s it for now. Cya later!
