Run Otaku Run Year Challenge – Week 10 – Day 2 Complete (Tuck and Roll)

Good afternoon everyone! This week’s challenge is to do Sit Ups, Roll Over then do Pushups. I was a little skeptical about it because the sit ups were hard for me to do in the beginning. Since I’m top heavy, I have more weight to lift and that’s annoying when you want to do exercises like sit ups and pushups.

Once I started, I was shocked! It was so easy for me to do a sit up with MUCH strain. When you see the video below, you’ll see that I almost lost balance at one point but I was able to get back to the workout. I’m so proud of myself. It’s such an accomplishment. Granted that wasn’t a regular sit up but hey, I was able to lift myself off the ground!

Now I’m wondering what other exercises I can do that I couldn’t do before! This challenge has helped me so much. I wish I could share it with other people but no one has asked to join. I’m not giving up though! One of the missions of Fitness To Cosplay is to inspire and there’s no way I’m giving up!

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
