Sunday Sweats: Vol. 11



Monday, 5/23/2016:  2.12 miles with the C25k app (34:47 min).  Then came home and did week 1, day 1 of Noelle Benepe's 21-day challenge which consisted of:  lunges on both sides, side to side squats, curtsy pulses, and bridge extensions for one minute each, with one minute of jump roping between each exercise.

Tuesday, 5/24/2016:  2.33 miles with the C25k app (37:18 min).  Then week 1, day 2 of the 21-day challenge: chest press, bicep curl, tricep kickback, shoulder press, and lateral raise for one minute each, with one minute of jumping jack squats between each exercise.

Wednesday, 5/25/2016:  Week 1, day 3 of the 21-day challenge:  squat shoulder press, curtsy into squat, single leg bridge on each side, reverse lunge & bicep curl, standing kickbacks, and calf raises for one minute each, with one minute of jumping jacks between each exercise.

Thursday, 5/26/2016:  2.34 miles with the C25k app (46.23 min) - not my best.

Friday, 5/27/2016:  2.02 miles with the C25k app (34.34 min).  Then week 1, day 5 of the 21-day challenge:  side to side pushups, back row, band press, tricep kickback, bicep curl shoulder press, and lateral to frontal raise for one minute each, with one minute of jump roping between each exercise.  Also did an extra round of each exercise.

Saturday, 05/28/2016:  Week 1, day 6 of the 21-day challenge:  lunges on each leg, fire hydrant on each leg, leg lifts on each leg, and donkey kicks on each leg for one minute each, with one minute of jump roping between each exercise.

------------------------------------

I'm so proud that I finished the whole first week of the challenge!  It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be and I find myself wanting to push myself a little more each time and do one more round.  I'm also super proud that I ran 4x last week!  Crazy.  Not gonna lie though, there were moments when I thought "maybe I should give myself a break today" but I got up and did it anyway.

And, though I know I shouldn't be relying on the scale, I've actually lost 6 lbs. since the last time I weighed myself (last month) which is a pretty HUGE accomplishment for me.  I also wore a bandeau bikini top yesterday that I haven't really been able to fit since, well EVER.  Even when I bought it, it was a bit tight and never really fit right until yesterday.  Stoked at my progress and so motivated to continue with everything!

What about you?  How are your fitness goals coming along?  Any major accomplishments or setbacks?
