Still Kicking

Hey Fam,
I hope you all are in great Spirits! I want to apologize up front for my lack of Blogging. I am again playing catch up with everyone’s Blog! So, where did I leave off?!?!? oh Yeah, the September Challenge.

Ya’ll I have been working it out with this Challenge and though I am not seeing a huge drop on the scale, home girls clothes are falling off…I love….Loooove my Aero and Pink (by Vicky) Capri sweats. These pants were always tight in the legs and ok in the waist. Now……. Your girl has to roll the waist and this is with tying the string tightly and the legs look as if I’m wearing Hubby’s sweat pants. So am I happy with these results? Hell Yeah! I am finishing up with the September Challenge and rolling right into another one, anything that keeps me motivated and focused on the task ahead.

This New Challenge is called “Shades of Brown” it starts on Monday September 26th and I’m excited about it. What I didn’t know when I signed up was that it was going to be a team effort. Ya’ll I can’t tell you how competitive I am, I know myself. I am going after every point that’s offered up. I just have to set my mind that not everyone is like that and to control myself. I met some of my Teammates through cyber space and must say I am so far very please with my group. Reading their profiles they seem very dedicated and hard working! I’m really excited to be paired up with such an Amazing group of ladies.

My workouts have been the Bushman workouts, JM’s Killer Buns and Thighs, Running/Walking, Ab Ripper X and for the SoB Challenge we have to select certain workouts each week. So I am going to stick with this until I become comfortable with the workouts!

Thank you for hanging in here with me and I hope you all are meeting your goals and killing your workouts. Have a great weekend and keep on Pushing! Much Love!

September Challenge

Hey Blog Fam!
I hope everyone is doing well. I have been reading Blogs more than updating as you can see but, I am still on point. Not, with juicing but, with my healthier lifestyle. I will revisit the juice diet later on during my journey and especially when I get a real juicer.
So, what have I been up to you ask?
I’ve joined my girl Crystal, who is a HUGE inspiration to me. This girl is a BEAST when it comes to working out and her weight loss journey is an AMAZING one. Since I need all the help I can get I decided to join her in THE ALTSOBANIAN WARRIORS September Challenge over at Myfitnesspal

It involves:
-          Not going over your allotted calories in the day
-          Drinking 64oz + of water per day
-          We also have to do these insane workouts on top of the workouts we’ve already planned for the day. These are our Challenge Workouts and we have to do them 6 Days per week.
-          Weigh in every Sunday

Challenge workouts are like this every other day:

Week 1 Challenge consisted of the following:

Day 1 - 50 Squat Kicks, 50 Jumping Jacks , 50 Crunches, 50 Mountain Climbers, 50 Wood Chops and 50 Globe Jumps!

Day 2- 2 sets of 15 Swimmer’s Presses, 2 sets of 21’s, 2 sets of 15 Dumbbell Chest Fly’s, 2 Sets of 15 Lawnmowers, 2 sets of Tricep Kickbacks, 2 sets of 15 Shoulder Shrugs (weighted)

Weeks 2 Challenge consisted of the following:

Day 1 - 5 minute bear walk, 50 Toe Touches, 50 Crunches, 100 Jumping Jacks, 50 Burpees, 20 Windshield Wipers, 50 Split Squats

Day 2 - 3 sets of 15 Swimmer’s Presses, 3 sets of 21’s, 3 sets of 15 Dumbbell Chest Fly’s, 3 Sets of 15 Lawnmowers, 3 sets of Tricep Kickbacks, 3 sets of 15 Wood chops, 20 Pushups

Day 3 is the same as Day 1 and Day 4 is the same as Day 2 and so on.

My Workouts for September so far are:

September 1st: Insanity Pure Cardio, Insanity Cardio Abs, Jackie Xtreme Timesaver, PLUS Day 1 of the Challenge. (see above)

September 2nd: KenpoX and JM’s Yoga Melt Down and Day 2 of the Challenge.

September 3rd: Spin Bike (60 Mins) No Challenge

September 4th: REST

September 5th:  JM’s Burn Fat Boost Metabolism and Day 1 and Day 2 of the 1st weeks Challenge

September 6th: KenpoX & Day 1 and Day 2 of Weeks 2 Challenge + 150 Squats.

Today: Insanity Cardio, Insanity Cardio Abs and Day 3 of Weeks 2 Challenge.

Oh and did I tell you I am doing this all without my heart rate monitor?!?!?! Sucks royally! I have shipped it off to get the battery changed b/c it would stop calculating my heart rate during mid workout. So, I am really missing it! :o(

I’m all over the place with the Challenge workouts b/c I was doing them on my own and when I found out they needed 2 more members I decided to join in last night. So, I’m all caught up on this Challenge and looking to do some major damage in collecting MEGA points. I have been trying to get some running/walking in but, it’s been raining since Sunday. I will keep you posted. 

Take care Fam and thank you for reading! Have a great week and Keep on Pushing!
