Spring into Action...30 day challenge!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

The official 30 day countdown to Springs arrival officially begins February 18th! Given the unseasonably cold winter and lack of seeing results it's no wonder my motivation lately has been wavering! While I'm still fitting in exercise daily, I've found myself having to force and drag and I know something has to change!

I have no intentions of waiting till Spring has sprung, so tomorrow I'll be "Springing into Action" with my personal 30 day, Absolutely NO EXCUSES challenge! I'm not talking seasonal spring here, I'm talking coil spring in your step!


I've enlisted the eyeballs of my family who are guaranteeing to be watching like hawks, waiting to swoop on weak prey, and now anyone else who reads and wants to hold me accountable here! The basics of my 30 day challenge are coming in this blog...there are many, but anyone who wishes to join me can certainly personalize to fit themselves!

Each evening I'll post a blog of the coming days "plan" ... details of daily of accomplishments, struggles(hopefully not too many) and goal earnings will be written daily that night with the "plan" for the next day ! That means if you don't see a daily blog come find me emoticon because I'm hiding out somewhere in shame! emoticon

A lot of thought over the last couple days when into making sure all the i's were dotted and t's crossed, including details from my blog last Wednesday! It wasn't until just now that I realized what my Goal Jar money will purchase as my completion reward...my first book about photography! I've always loved taking photos, more so black and white or colorsplash... I recently got a new camera that I'm in love, love with! While I'd love to take a photography class, the budget doesn't allow so right now, so a hard earned book will be wonderful! Hmmm...now to research what book I'd like and see how much money I need to earn! Yay...more incentive! emoticon

Okay... Enough chatter, time to get to the nuts and bolts of my challenge...or should I say coil springs! Hehe!

emoticonEXERCISE: Progressive goals that include increasing Cardio and Circuit ST on a weekly basis! (All "straight cardio" will be hard with the exception of an easy cardio day on Tues each week!) My hard cardio will rotate Interval runs, Elliptical, and Stationary...all circuit cardio will be done using Stair Stepper!

Week 1: Total minutes daily 59...as the following
30 mins hard straight cardio, 15 additional cardio minutes done in circuit consisting of 4 ST exercises, 3 sets!

Circuit looks like this...4:00 cardio, 4:30 ST, 3:30 cardio, 4:30 ST, 3:30 cardio, 4:30 ST, 4:00 cardio!

    I need to rest, I got tired reading all you're going to do. Please notice the operative words..."going to do" not "plan" to do. I know that for you the written word is a powerful tool. Not only writing it you see it, but yep, we will hold you accountable, too!

    Wow! Very ambitious! I thought about joining, but way too ambitious for me! I'll be there in spirit. I will, however, commit to myself for the next 30 days to exercise at least 400 minutes per week. I do need to add ST!
