Arms and Stomach and Legs--Oh My!

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

It's like Lions and Tigers and Bears-- Oh My! Or at least that's how I remember the order.

It is the direct fault of the challenge I have been doing for just about two months now. One week, the challenge was 300!! reps of strength training for maximum points, which at first glance, I thought was impossible. But I also wanted the maximum points for my team, so I set out to do it. I split them into three different zones, arms and stomach and legs, one each day, then repeat. And ever since, challenge or not, at home or in Amsterdam for the weekend, rain or shine, I have done 300 reps a day.

Today is a stomach day. That means crunches of different sorts. 300 of them. Yippee.

I'm still not to the excited to do it frame of mind, I'm in the force myself to do it frame of mind and don't ask questions.

It got easier, so I changed the types of strength training. Soon I may have to go to 333 reps a day. My jeans are looser, no doubt, I'm pretty sure it hasn't taken off weight, and may have stalled the losses too, but overall, looser jeans are hard to argue with.

One thing though, it is a habit, I don't even ask myself if I want to do them, I just do them.
