Today is day three of 100 days of 60 minutes of fitness. Now I wont tell you that I get up raring to go in the morning but I am trying here to get back to some kind of normal routine. What I really want to do is walk pound the pavement *sigh but that is not possible right now.

So I get up this morning and well my foot says lets just skip today and try again tomorrow. But No we didnt do that. The foot is lazy but irregardless it must stretch and work it is going to get better . The work out is not to terrible .

Routine ( 3x 10 reps each )
Dumbbell side bends
Standing twist
Squats with dumbbells
Calf raises
a form of lying abduction
30 cross body toe touches

3 minutes of walking in place with chest pump ( a resistant band under the arm pits that you pull out and pull back as you walk)

30 minutes on the cardio fit

Last night as I was redoing my spark page for Christmas ( looks most awesome to me) I found this thing called the 12 days of Christmas fitness .

So today I did 100 modified jumping jacks ... my foot will not take the regular ones and no I didnt even try .. trust me I know ....

The first thing that really sent me into panic mode during recovery was about week 2 I lost my muscle tone .. I was smaller but flabby . I dont mean to offend anyone but well it is my blog .. I have this fear of becoming some hanging fat to my knees ... with whiskers everywhere ... not sure what caused it but it scares the hell out of me ... So I try to tone my muscles a lot so as not to have the hanging problems. Well let me tell you it wasnt as bad as I thought .. After 3 days everything is tightening right back up .. I dont mind being big as long as I can see the changes and boy can I .. another reason that I know the changes are real ... because as I walk i look down at my legs and say Ahh Yesss ..

    First of all, your page does look mighty festive!! :)

    I like the 12 days of Christmas thing and might have to try it. Good job with the jumping jacks...modified or not, you did good!

    I have a fear of the hanging skin as well. I look at my arms and think if I just get them really strong then they wont sag. But I am not sure how well that will work for my belly. :( After 2 kids and a lifetime of obesity I feel like it is destined to saggy. I hope not though.

    Keep being amazing!!
