Annie's Workout Room or DONE Room

Sunday, January 31, 2010

This is the room where "it" gets DONE. This is my workout room. The video speaks for itself. One thing.. I was very hesitant to add the HUGE mirror since that's one reason I detest going to the gym... but I decided to get it not for vanity's sake but for the reason most gym's have them - to check technique... it's been a blessing while learning kettlebells, yoga and hula hooping.. so much fun. Enjoy!

I made my plan for February today. I am sooooo excited I met January's weight loss goal and will not let the momentum I've gained stop... My goal for February is to lose 10 pounds.. TEN POUNDS!!.. I've posted it everywhere... with posters.. and post its.. I am FOCUSED on my goal and have a plan... Here's my plan:

emoticon DRINK DRINK DRINK until I can't drink anymore... I know this important.. nuf said!

emoticon Continue the 100 pushup challenge 3 times a week

emoticon Log my food EV-ER-REE day... every day.. no exceptions. This keeps me honest.

emoticon Continue the pantry challenge as long as it doesn't interfere with my goal... once it starts slowing down my progress or I'm eating too many starchy, processed foods cuz that's all that's left in the cupboard - I'll quit. Until then.. I'm having fun!

emoticon Do my kettlebell workouts at least three times a week... attend a kettlebell workshop offered in my area in February... work on my technique... and work in at least one TABATA workout a week.

emoticon Train on the ellipitcal three times a week with at least one of these workouts being HIIT

emoticon Train for strength at least three times a week using the TRX and bodyweight exercises

emoticon Do Yoga at least one time a week and continue to work on technique

emoticon Show up... check in to my spark teams a couple of times a week and look for opportunities to take my eyes off center (me) and encourage someone, celebrate with someone, be inspired by someone and just "be there" for my spark friends.

Welp, that's it. BRING ON FEBRUARY!! I am focused. I am committed. I am ready. I am warrior ready. I am DONE.

Battle On!

    GREAT ROOM... in all my favourite colours! LOL!

    YOU are one amazing woman, Annie... I LOVE your spirit, and your conviction! We are going to do something similar (my husband and I)... though it won't be as pretty! LOL! We've had a 'sitting/visiting area' in our basement for 10 years... and, you guessed it... we've rarely 'sat' there. So instead we're turning it inot a home weight room (primarily), and gym! I;m so excited,a dn you've given me some things to think about too... I've got to figure out how to add a mirror for technique purposes.

    Thanks again for the affirmation!

    Battle On, Baby!

    P.S. Where did you get your bosu ball? I've been looking for one and haven't had any luck.

    I LOVE your workout room! I would be excited to get in there and workout. I love your video also. You will need a new set of clothing soon. Hurrah for you!.

    Wow! Gosh! Yowza! You've got a DREAM workout room, Annie!

    Methinks you should win some kind of prize or something! Oh wait... the fact that your room inspires you to work out regularly -is- the prize!

    I am so glad you shared your workout room. Gives me a new way of looking at things.

    Side note: Is your fav color green accented with hot pink?! It works!
    (Mine would be Spark Orange/Hot Pink with tiny slivers of Sunshine Yellow/Lime Green.)

    I think your room is very cool, and those jeans will fit again..., of course you'll have to buy new jeans to celebrate.
