30 For 30 Challenge: ouch!

Ouch! I am not sure what happened but I tweaked my back! It's possible this happened a few days ago but I think my workout yesterday really made it flare up. During my workout today I had to modify any jumping movements to small hops and it seemed to do okay.

Because of this reason and the fact that I forgot next week is Thanksgiving (!!!) and we're going to be travelling, I have decided to revert back to my original days. Therefore today is officially day 26. I really wanted to jump back a few days but the original 30 days ends just before Thanksgiving and it's perfect.

Depending on my back, I want to start thinking up a new challenge for myself. This has been great for me and I truly feel stronger and trimmer.  Only 4 days left!

30 For 30 Challenge: update

Okay! I honestly am not even sure what day I am meant to be on. I think it's Day 24.

I have been away for the past 6 days and thought keeping up with the challenge would be a little easier.    Being away with a toddler and no spouse makes it a bit difficult. I did definitely get some good workouts in and truthfully only missed a couple of days but I really wanted to do the 30 Day Shred video combined with the 10 minutes of Standing Abs for 30 whole days.

I am hitting the "refresh" button on this challenge and tomorrow I am going to call Day 20 and also the first day of LEVEL 3! I really want to get in 10 solid days of Level 3 so this is perfect.

Okay, 10 more we go!

30 For 30 Challenge: days 11-15

Half way there! Half way there!

If I am being totally honest, I could use a break. But I shall not quit, I am half way done and there's no looking back now.
On day 11 I moved on to Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred video and LET ME TELL YOU...level one is a warm up compared to level 2. It is kicking my booty and I am pretty sure squat thrusts are from the devil. I will admit after 4 days on level 2 it is feeling slightly more manageable but I am still sweating up a storm and working it hard.

Today I decided to change up the 10 minute part of my workout and did a Standing Abs with Weights workout. The Standing Abs was getting a little tedious so it was nice to do something new.
