A blog of mine

Archive for June 2009

doing the 30 day shred in 4 days, has to be a new record. so today i did a dvd called “10 min solutions; kickboxing” or something like that. its 5 separate 10min workouts, that involve kickboxin and hand weights. i really enjoy it, might need to put that on a buy list. i hope to do shred again either tomorrow, or start again on monday. eventually ill get to level 2, and nt have to deal with those evil shulderpress, and antierior raise moves. grrr. but oh well.

heres a separate thought. i am thinking about making a nother blog to post about everyday life and stuff like that soon. hope you will check back to see how that goes.

i hope to get some new measurements or stats ineither a week or 2 so  can see if i am actually making  noticeable difference. o rcheck pics. i did notice that in my pics from the last post, i do almost have some abs,but still not nice looking.

has anyone else notice that i cant stay on a subject too ong? or is just me being jumpy?

hope everyone has hada good workout and feels god.


ive officially hopped on the 30 day shred bandwagon. Ive done 2 days so far, and i REALLY dislike level 1 strength with the circuits 1/3. i just dont have shoulder strength. biceps are fine, but no shoulders. grrr. guess ill be there a while. at least the recommended 10days. here are my starting stats… here are my stats to update-
weight- 113lbs
waist-(around belly button)28″
chest-(above boobs?) 32″
flexed bicep-10″

and lets see i can figure out how to add my starting pics… ugh.excuse the messy house and the strange angles, i had my 4 and 6yos taking the pics today. so there is my starting point. i guess they will go at the end of the post. anyone know how to get them to be in the post?

i havent decided whether to do this workout everyday or take a break on the weekends. i know ill get burned out if i do it everytday, and dont want that. there are other programs id love to try after this one as well. kinda looking at the power 90. i think thats all on my workout progress. ill keep trying to update.

i am still working on this blogging thing, and the exercise thing. i did fairly well this week. i did take thursday off since i apparently hurt or pulled my hip flexor, it hurt  even to walk, so thurs i didnt do anything. friday i did a what i thought would be an easy workout on exercise tv.com. it was called celebrity shred. i did it, and felt fine,by friday i was a bit sore in the legs. saturday i did a 10min kickbox from sparkpeople, and played around on my BILs bowflex, really justdid bicep curls, upright row, and bent rows, pulling 20lbs. PLUS did my pushups for my pushup challenge. total of 40pushups. working my way up. so here i am sunday, and SOOOO SORE.my inner thighs, and all chest/arm muscles are aching. but guess i am rebuilding muscle. i still havent gotten the nerve to post my bikini pics on here though. i just dont like them. maybe in a few more weeks.  i am starting the 30day shred monday,so ill be posting that progress. maybe ill do a tankini pic so i can show my progress w/o getting too undressed. lol. we’ll see what tomorrow brings. 🙂

i also have figured out that being on your knees and hammering a floor down is a good legs and butt workout too. did that yesterday at our new house. today finishing the peel/stick tile for the girls bathroom. so heres to a more creative workout.

have a good workout day too.

i am trying to keep up on this thing, and my workouts. i do fine throughout the week, but come weekend, i just hate doing it while justin is home. bike riding is great when he is home since i can leave the girls with him. but i hate him watching me do strenght. but id rather do strength than cardio almost anytime. i hte that it is only recommended 3-4x a week. but ill tell you this… this week has been a bit rough. sunday we had a gathering at the park, and played sotball, and i ran around the girls, and up and down the slide, and swings, and just had fun. and yet after my 25min express workout (FIRM total body time crunch), i am super sore today. so kinda glad to do cardio today. i did 2x of a sparkpeople.com cardio workout, and then some ab stuff. but oh my.

i do plan on taking a bathing suit pic soon, on the diaperswappers board that i frequent, the ladies were posting pics to show how a real womans body looks, especially after kids, its not the pictur of a hollywood body that so many envy. so when i post it there, ill go ahead and post it for the  blog world to see too. YIKES>

and i think that is all.

I almost forgot the password… i had the lovely people with wordpress email me a temp one. so i can continue on  with my blogging expedition…

so heres what ive done since last visit… not much basicly. i rode justins bike a few times, about 4miles at a time. thats  lovely. i wish i had a bike of my own. then our internet was out, so i was on my own as for my workouts. no exercisetv.com, or sparkpeople.com workouts for me. so i dug out my binder w/ some weight exercises, and did 15min on tues, and 15min on weds with some added 10mins of cardio on weds. and there was  my workout. i much rather do it from the pc or dvd than think of my own though.

today, we got the new netflix dvds in, so i did the FIRM: total body time crunch”  25min express workout. at 7:30 AM. not fun, and i am not too coordinated at that time in the morning either. so i muddled through the warmup, and was back on track for the actual weight exercises. yay me.  you mightve thought… “why did she get up so early to do a workout if shes not coordinated?” well i had a partial teeth cleanin appt w/ miss c at ivy tech, and L was going to be here at 8:30, and if i didnt do it then, i probably would do it. so that is why.

as for my water drinking, its hit and miss, been using crystal light still in it most the time, but havent actually bought dr pepper ina a few days. so good for me.

i think thats all for my progress. oh yea, i did have a dr appt weds, and got weighed… 113lbs dressed and with flip flops. not too bad.


  • None
  • syndi: you are doing so well. our measurements are very similar. I'm not even brave enough to post bare belly pics let alone bikini (not to mention I don'
  • tjcjlc99: i dont think you can, i think you just have to either burn the dvd or keep watching on the pc.
  • syndibee: good job on the water. can you record from netflix then you can collect all your dvd's??
