So I am now a quarter of the way finished my 30 day challenges... eep! Starting to feel a difference too! They're going to start getting really challenging (if you will) after tomorrow's rest day!
Today I did:
40 sit ups
20 leg raises
30 second plank
and 80 squats
My lower body is definitely fatigued! I'm also getting better at the sit ups and leg raises! Diet is still going well, I might have to eat out of the house a bit today, but I think I'll be good.

Well here's day 6! So far healthy eating has been good. I have yet to encounter a set back. Which is good. Day 4 was a rest day (yay!) and Day 5 I followed the plan and did 20 minutes on the ARC Trainer at the gym. My hope was to get in a full hour of cardio, but my friend and gym buddy has another ovarian cyst and though she didn't mention it til we were at the gym already, I didn't want her to hurt herself. So she did an easy ride on the recumbent cycle and some leg extensions while I gave 'er on the ARC.
I work tonight so I've already done today's challenges.
35 sit ups
15 leg raises
25 second plank
75 (!!) squats
My bum hurts! Haha! Anyways, with the healthy eating and regular exercise, along with it being the last day of Shark Week, I'm really feeling like myself again. It's good !

Well, today was another scorcher heat wise. I weighed myself today, 154.5lbs. 11 up from the start of summer- wow. Started a flat belly, clean eating diet today. Well, a lifestyle change, but I'm going to try strictly adhering to it for the majority of the time. Sometimes I drink. A lot. I'm going to try to cut back though.
Did my ab & squat challenge workouts this morning. Phew! The squats are crazy.
25 sit ups
10 leg raises
15 second plank
Also went for a walk in the heat today. I stay hydrated but phew, it really tired me out. It's Saturday night and I'm staying in!

Phew I am sweating, it is 31 degrees outside, I'm very crampy, and I just did day 2 of the abs and squat challenge. That is:
20 sit ups
8 leg raises
12 second plank
and 55 squats.
The abs are pretty manageable, but the squats really make me sweat. But, a round bum = worth it. Gonna stretch then seek out dinner!

Well I've done what I normally do over the summer, which is get off the healthy eating and exercise train and indulge in patio burgers and beers. I also worked an overnight job that had me working and commuting for 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. After that, I went a bit crazy in the socializing department. Needless to say, I'm back where I started with SP and 12lbs up from my last blog.|
Sigh. But that's what life is like I guess. I just need to refocus. I've decided to do the 30 day squat challenge, and the 30 day abs challenge. I started today. I got to day 15 of the squat challenge about a month ago, and saw a big difference in my butt. I'm excited to see the end results in 30 days.
Meanwhile, I need to figure out a healthy diet to adhere to, especially with my job. I work in a diner. It's pretty darn easy to eat french fries and cream soup every day there. Yikes. I'm trying to eat before I go in and make better choices. I don't know if I'll be as super active on SP as I was a few months ago, but I'm going to start logging again. Workouts first, then food. And blogging. More blogging. Phew.
