I QuiT!

So yeah. I really hate to admit it, but I quit the Bikini Body Mommy Challenge. It was too brutal on my body, especially my joints! I felt the pain, but it wasn't the good pain! :(  So I decided to stop doing it. I pulled something the first week, but continued to exercise ... and it never got better. Now it seems to be feeling better. Walking didn't bother it, but all the Bikini Body Mommy Challenge stuff did.

At least I have come to realize that I can't take a Insanity Class at the YMCA ... prob'ly not even a Boot Camp one lol but maybe a Yoga one ;)

On a good note. I got a Polar FT7 for my birthday!!!!!! Geno bought it for me! I love the thing! I haven't figured out how to get it to show if I'm in a fat burning zone or a fitness improvement zone. I'll get that figured out though ... it just might take me awhile lol For those that don't know what it is... It's a heart rate monitor, and it will show your true calories burned from your own heart rate.... I love it! All those sites and apps and tools online for all of it are so far off on the calories burned! I was OVER EATING from it! I didn't know. I knew they were off, but not that far off!! Scary! So now I can eat the right amount of calories :) Did I mention I love it? I do! I DO! :D lol

As for exercising, I will be doing it still of course! I enjoy it. I did a short routine yesterday and then after dinner I went on a 4 mile walk in the park.

Here was the routine I did (in order) - 25 minute workout:

Warm up (5 Mins)

Crunchless Abs (10 Mins) 

Bigger Butt (5 Mins)

Cool Down (5 Mins)

Today I am going to take a break, maybe make some jewelry? :) I might go for a walk later though. I love walking! And it burns a lot of calories!!

Good Morning!

Well Today was Day 4 of the Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge. I have to admit that I didn't want to do it. I had to make myself do it. I'm just tired of getting sweaty. Sounds silly, but it's true.

I get up every morning, make coffee, feed the cat, water the plants n check the bird seed. Then do my workout. After I am down with my workout .. I don't even want the coffee I made! By then I'm so hot that all I want is something cold. So I put ice in my coffee ... n I grin n bear it. It's gross unless I add flavor to it and milk... which is only added calories. I should just skip the coffee but I can't bring myself to it yet. So for now I am grin n bearin' it lol

Well, I am off to make breakfast, whatever that may be!

11 more days n I get to weigh myself. I hope all this sweating pays off!! ;)

Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge

So today I started the bikini body mommy 90 day challenge. I feel like I'm not exercising enough with it. Maybe I wasn't pushing myself enough or something. Hoping tomorrow is better lol

I can't afford to do the meal plan to go with it, so I am just going to count calories instead. Which is hard when I make stuff like homemade soup or something.

Right now I am eating a healthy breakfast, Yoplait, bluebarries, granola and almonds and it's costing me 360 calories :(
