I did it

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I completed (ok didn't do the running) the 100 workout. I only have 30-35 min of gym time after work and before school and wasn't sure what I wanted to do so I took on the challenge of this workout. I wasn't sure if I should start with the running, which I blogged I would yesterday, however I opted instead to start at the highest and work my way down.

100 jumping jacks pretty easy but I recommend a good sports bra to tie the girls down

90 crunches - I did three different types - 1 set of 30 on the bench w/feet anchored, 30 using 35 lb weights with the vertical tower and 30 on the floor

80 squats - did this in 4 sets of 20 each and while challenge because it is out of my norm I only stopped once for water, lol

70 leg lifts, guessed this was lying leg lifts which I have a tough time with because my thighs love to get in on the action, broke it into a few sets and I am feeling it today in my lower abs/groin area

60 jumping jacks

50 crunches - straight standard crunches - when I do this again think I will do V-ups or something out make it more challenge

40 squats - again sets - 2 of 20 each

30 leg lifts - 2 sets of 15

20 jumping jacks

from here I showered and dressed for school and had to hustle for the bus which was ok.

Today, post workout. . . . thighs are a little sore from the squats and the mid/lower abs are feeling it however it isn't horrible, just a little stiff in the legs and ache. Its a nice feeling, haven't experienced it in a while. Will I do the workout again, with the 10 min running, Yes!!! Don't get me wrong it was a challenge but that is something I personally need and seems to really excel when faced with a challenge. I like to proof the nah sayers wrong!

As for school, it was an interesting night. We taste tested stout as part of a classmates paper in environmental science and my cost teacher proceed to tell me he doesn't see a bakery working. WOW! Ballsy bastard - he is an old man who just annoys me, and now I must prove him wrong, open the shop and be a success so I can rub his nose in it like the puppy who peed on the carpet. I know it shouldn't really matter but it does. It really irks me that he can just be so oh it wont work versus encouraging a student to pursue their dream. His entire attitude toward the class matter is bad enough but that comment last night, oh boy. Anyway on an up note I only have two more classes with him and that's it so I will grin and bear it, keeping our head high and I will succeed at my dream shop.

Fitness plan today: my usual walking, maybe some light weights w/core tonight when I change otherwise nothing really until tomorrow. Feeling a need for a break, should work on preparing for the finals tomorrow anyway. We shall see how I feel later. Most likely I will do a little core using the vertical tower or the ab machine and then some bicep curls and tricep extension or something

Either way I am going to be moving!!!

    Wow, that sounds like a fun workout! I may have to try that one myself... I found a cool website where this lady posts her daily workouts and they are pretty extreme but mostly body-weight exercises. Her website is BodyRock.tv and everything she posts is free and she has a workout called the 550. There are 11 exercises that you do 50 reps (each side) for. It's amazing, although I'm not yet in shape to be able to handle it!

    Best wishes!!!
