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.

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!

Week Challenge #2 – Day 3

So I did the Jack Knife Situps and those were  A LOT easier to do than the regulars. so I’ll do that for the rest of the challenge. Rope jumping has gotten a lot easier. I thought it would hurt my boobs but not so much. I don’t even think about it when I’m jumping.

I had to place a pillow at my lower back because the floor hurts too much. It looks silly but it helps a lot. I even tried to fold the mat to were my lower back is and it’s still not comfortable. What can you do?

Week Challenge #2 – Day 2

Yesterday I was able to do a video of my workouts. When I looked back at the videos, I saw how much I suck! lol I pray at the end of all of this, I can get through a workout without looking silly and dying at the end. lol

I need to find other sit-ups to do because the regular ones hurt. I saw my cousin do one where he’s legs are up in the air and he moves upward. I think I’ll try that today. The floor hurts though! I also did the rope jumping without shoes. I kept hitting my toes! Ouch! I’ll wear my sneakers tonight. Always a learning curve. I joined Youfit! So on the days that I can, I’ll go to the gym and do the challenges there.

My calves are so tight. Kinda hard to walk but that’s a sign of progress so I’m not complaining, much. lol
