Hourly Plank

BeachBody Day76 

I love doing plank to workout my core. I’ve been doing pretty good with the PlankADay challenge – doing a plank once a day. Today was Tone It Up’s Happy Hour Friday Challenge – you can find it on their monthly calendars :-) For this week, it was 30 reps of any exercise. I really couldn’t decide what to do when I got up this morning. I kept going back and forth between plank and pushups. I went with a 30 second plank :-) Headed out for a 3 mile run for my bootycall and started the happy hour challenge at 8a. Made it through 1p before I missed 2p and 3p. To make up for it I did a 1:30 plank.

Friday Happy Hour Challenge

Did my 5p Plank under a tree at the Park

Turbo Fire Day 74 – Part of the reason I missed the planks at 2p and 3p was because I did my Fire55EZ workout. I did all the jumps, tuck jumps, and jacks. I accidentally chose to Fire Up the music so I couldn’t hear the cues as well but I only fell behind a couple times. It was fun with the music turned up though :-) I think once I have the routine memorized and don’t really need the cues, I’ll be firing the music up again.

The Bikini Series Challenge was to do the Drop10 Slim Spin – 40 minutes of my favorite cardio. It was already dark when I could finally do it. I almost decided to skip it and do it for my bootycall tomorrow. But headed to the gym anyways. I’m not really sure I’d be able to head outside for my bootycall tomorrow either.  My knees were really tight so I went to the elliptical. I did a cross training program that had me pedal backwards and forwards.  It was different going backwards but I liked the change up.

Ended my hourly plank at 10p. Going to count that as my PlankADay :-)

BeachBody Challenge Day31

I meant to do have this up last night but I decided to catch up on some episodes of Spartacus. It’s my guilty pleasure ;-) And about the only thing I watch on TV.

I was up late again the night before trying to recover some old videos of my boys that I had lost. I still got up at 6a yesterday  to do my bootycall workout. It was tough though. I had actually woken up at 5:30a because I thought one of the boys were trying to climb into my bed but it turned out to be an earthquake. I just went back to sleep. lol. I found after getting up about the earthquake.

Before doing my workout, I weighed, measured, and took pictures to track my progress. The numbers aren’t that impressive, but I go by how I look and feel. I’m feeling great and I think I’ve toned up a little. I know that I have to really watch my diet in order to tighten and tone up my middle section more.

Weight – 106.4

Chest – 30

Waist – 25.25

Hips – 33

Right Leg – 19

Left Leg – 19

Right Calf – 13.5

Like I’ve said before – I’m not going for weight loss. If anything, I’d like to put on some muscle :-) I’m really focusing on getting a stronger upper body.

My Bootycall workout – Itty Bitty X3 and Mad Abs March Day 5. I did 13 regular pushups and I think that I’m going to keep trying to do regular pushups for the Mad Abs challenge :-) After dropping Gio off to school I came home and did NTC Razor Sharp Workout – reached 1000 minutes and unlocked Lea Michele’s exclusive workout :-) I can’t to try this one out.

Turbo Fire Day 29

When I logged into Team BeachBody’s Super Gym, it had Fire45EZ as my scheduled workout but my calendar said Fire55EZ. I double checked with the Class Schedule that came with the DVD’s and it was Fire55EZ. I guess the auto schedule messed up. Oh well. I did great with Fire55. I’m getting better at the moves so I’m really able to get into it.  Dripped sweat the whole time.  Did all the tuck jumps and star jacks for the fire drills. This is a long class and it wears me out but it’s so much fun.  I ended with a 2 min plank.

All on elbows with a stand up comedy act on tv that made me laugh which actually made it really tough to do :-)

Meals:

M1: Chobani Champions Vanilla Chocolate Chunk with 1/2 tbsp of raw almond butter and chia seeds

I could eat this All the time :-) Adding Chia seeds gives it texture without adding any extra fat or calories.

M2:Choc Shakeology w/ avocado, mango, pineapple and spinach. Small bowl of frozen grapes.

Green tropical Chocolate Shakeology

Frozen grapes are like candy to me :-)

M3: Left over quinoa chk stir fry

M4: Originally going to have a Larabar but my 5yr old decided he wanted it so I had an Almond coconut Kind Bar

M5: Salmon and green beans. Used my girl Sharisse’s  (FitFoodJunkie) balsamic/honey sauce on the salmon and the green beans. It was soooooo yummy. It’s my new favorite :-)

Using the balsamic/honey sauce to season my green beans.

Clean, Lean, and Green :-)

Dessert – 4 dark chocolate almonds.

100 oz. of water.
