This is what we were in last night. The Encore Finale- Pumped Up Kicks (of course.) Everyone jumping, sweating, screaming, clapping, singing–I love concerts.
I’ve decided to do the 30 Day Body Rock Challenge. I did my fit test today and these are my scores:
Squat Jumps- 26
Push Ups- 12
High Knees- 35
Switch Lunges- 17
Tuck Jumps- 6
Straight Abs- 18
Well, as you can see, by the time I got towards the last few exercises I was dying and couldn’t do much. I also didn’t do many Switch Lunges because I have bad knees. I’m hoping my knees will improve as I build muscle though. They’ve already posted the workout for Day 1 but I will be waiting until tomorrow to do it. Also, I’m not sure that I will be doing the workout on the weekends. I may chose to take those days as rest considering I haven’t worked out in years and my body is going to have a difficult transition time.
Last thing to note is that I’ve never done the Body Rock workouts before so I’m hoping that I can get through them without having to buy any of the equipment. I may have to skip some exercises or adapt them to work with what I have. We’ll see!
So the idea is to introduce 12 new habits into my life in 2012 and hopefully be a ‘new me’ by the end of the year.
Here are the improvements I’d like to make in no specific order:
1. Be kinder and more patient with my family
2. Tone up my body
3. Increase flexibility
4. Pack healthy lunches every day
5. Build up savings account
6. Organize my home and keep it that way
7. Develop a nightly beauty routine
8. Take better care of my dog (walk her, play with her, give her time)
9. Read for pleasure
10. Blog consistently
11. Reduce food waste, meal plan for dinners & try new recipes
12. Stop little bad habits (like biting my nails, etc)
