Family Workout Challenge.

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Monday we start our Family workout challenge. We have been trying to incorporate working out into our lives a little more each day. Starting Monday here is our 5 week challenge.


It is going to be brutal but the results are going to to be worth it. Who wants to join us?
There will be a reward for finishing all 5 weeks. ( just for my kids sorry sparkers :) I thought about doing cash, but I am thinking that sends a bad message. So I think I will set it for something they want, like a new pair of shoes, or even money for spending in Disneyland. We are also incorporation exercise into our punishments. This weeks punishment for being mean to your siblings is 1 minute wall sits, last week was push-ups. It's amazing how much less fighting there has been in our house, compared to when they got sent to their rooms or got hollered at. :) I was little less excited about doing this workout, when my husband asked me to do it with him at 6 am. Ugh. :) This is the thing that I need to push me to the next level though. That on top of my boot-camp workouts is going to be exhausting. I will either have to do the challenge Monday nights or tuesday-saturday because no way am I doing this right before I do my 8 minute Monday's drill - I would be to0 fatigued to give it my all.

Food:
I ate a half a piece of pizza yesterday. Real pizza not Paleo pizza, and it tasted OK. I expected it to be like a cheesey carby slice of heaven, and it was just OK. Disappointing and reassuring. Guess I am doing this right. I made paleo ice cream yesterday out of coconut milk, mangoes, avocado, lime juice, honey, It was pretty good. My family even liked it, well except for my 6 year old who made a gross face, and gave it away LOL. She said paleo means it looks like it will taste good but it just taste weird or icky. emoticon more for me.

Weight:

The last few days have been way to heavy on fruits and nuts, and way to light on protein. It is showing up on the scale. I weighed in at 127.6 today YIKES!!!! Here is hoping its water weight.

Body Image:

I have been doing a lot of burpees - which is the exercise I love to hate. But they are giving me awesome oblique muscles., and back muscles along my spine are getting tight and beautiful as well. I still have hips and a big booty, but I can feel my hip bones now. I am getting sexy - Long way to go, but not as far as I have come.

    This is great! I wish I could get my entire family on board with a fitness challenge, but for now I am contenting myself with walks with hubby and occasional workouts with our daughter. emoticon
