Fitness Makeover Day 17: taking it easy was back to walking tonight.  I finished a quiz, argued my grade, and answered a homework problem.  I was stressed and decided to wait until Wednesday the 27th for my break day.  Tonight I took it easy on myself and walked 2.5 km. 

Fitness Makeover Day 16: Just dip it!

I'm so proud of myself.  I did 150 each of modified:
  • pushups
  • pull ups
  • dips

Fitness Makeover Day 15: Happy Food Sunday!

I did a whole lot of nothing today.  Well...unless you call eating a workout.  I was super sore from my Friday night of burpees.  All I did was take a short 3.4 minute walk around the neighborhood. 

Fitness Makeover Day 14: It's so dark!

I walked 3.4 km today.  How?  By walking to and from the pharmacy.  It was a compromise.  My boyfriend wanted to drive to and from the restaurant and I wanted to walk.  Instead, we walked to and from the pharmacy.  Woohoo!

Fitness Makeover Day 10: Worked off Part of Father's Day BBQ

I had to walk today.  I ate a lot yesterday.  It wasn't as bad as Memorial Day, but it was still a lot of food.  So, today I walked the neighborhood.  I did this:

  • 2 mile walk
  • 100 modified pull ups
  • 200 modified push ups
  • 300 modified squats
Do you think I worked off the cheeseburger?

Fitness Makeover Day 11: Let's Do It Together

My boyfriend agreed to work out with me tonight.  So, we worked it hard!

  • 100 squats (modified)
  • 5 push ups (modified for me)
  • 75 squats (modified)
  • 10 push ups (modified for me)
  • 50 squats (modified)
  • 15 push ups (modified for me)
  • 25 squats (modified)
  • 20 push ups (modified for me)

We were sweaty, tired and fell asleep on the couch.  

Fitness Makeover Day 12: Please turn around!

My boyfriend thought I was crazy tonight.  We went for an 8:30pm walk (hey, he asked!).  During the walk, I decided to do this:

  • 800km walking forward
  • 400 km walking backwards 
  • 800km walking forward
  • 400 km walking backward
It was a total of 2400 km.  All I have to say is that walking backwards has a totally different feel and I felt different muscles working.
