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!
