Yesterday Michelle and I did not follow our Strong is Sexy Challenge schedule…we were a little stressed and emotional. We decided to take a personal day and took the day off from working out.
First let us rewind to Monday, we did the workout that Casey had planned. The Sexy Pain workout from bodyrock tv. A great 12 minute interval workout. We started with a 6 minute jump-rope interval as our warm-up.
We set our Gymboss Interval Timer to 10 and 30 second intervals for 9 rounds. Each interval we try to do a different move while jump roping, like high knees, jumping jack, etc.
After the workout we did go for a 15 minute brisk walk outside.
Monday’s affirmation is worth repeating:
I am perfect exactly as I am!
Great piece of advice. One that we do need to remind ourselves from time to time.
This morning we did the Amazing Abs workout. One of our favorite abs workouts from bodyrock tv followed by a little stretching.
We really love the fast pace of this interval workout. For this amazing ab workout we set our Gymboss Interval Timer to 9 rounds of 10sec/10sec intervals, with no break in between. You really have to move fast from one exercise to the next. And the workout is broken into 3 parts.
I am courageous, confident, and capable!
It really helps saying this little words of encouragement before doing our workouts plus saying it through out the day. We think we will keep doing them even after the challenge is over. They help us focus!
I am really going to try to challenge myself each week not only with my daily workouts but with my eats too! I feel it is a balance of both great exercise and good eats that will make or break my physique that I want for my wedding!
yes I know no Vibrams, we wear them every other day, still breaking them in
Though, as much as I have that goal in the back of my mind, Michelle and I really try to do our best everyday with it all. Because we want to look our best (and be fit) everyday. This is our personal goal. I do want to be FIT for my wedding. Is that a bad thing?
This Strong is Sexy fitness challenge is really helping me think about how I am going to get in shape (more in shape – I am still not where I would like to be) for my wedding. Time for me to be focused on my goal of being a fit bride :) Any other brides out there doing the same thing?
Twins Question: What affirmation helps you get through your day? What do you do to stay positive and happy all day long? Do you like saying affirmations? Do you feel they help?
Do you ever feel you go through a fitness period of not seeing anymore results? What do you do about it? Any other brides to be out there working out hard to be fit for your big day?
till next time, xoxo
