Day 19...Beginning of Week 7

Published by Melanie under on 12:53 PM
Forgive me for my tardy entry...I was having a troublesome time mustering the energy to dictate last night's routine. For some reason, I fear that this week is going to d-r-a-g by, and I'm already unmotivated. Not sure what that's all about...but I'd better snap out of it soon!

Last night was both exhausting, and liberating. For the first time EVER I was able to complete 2 laps without all...twice. Not a small feat for fact, I remember W-A-Y back on my first week I could barely finish 1 lap. How coincidental that this week's project is our GRATITUDE page...this is definitely an accomplishment worth noting and bragging about.

The routine didn't really have a name...other than CARDS. Tracy had a deck of cards, each of which had a different exercise on them. She would draw 3 cards. The first card was done for 1 minute, the 2nd card for 2 minutes, and the 3rd card for 3 minutes. After the 3 exercises, we had to run 2 laps. After a 1 minute break, we did it all over again...with new cards.

I will do my best to remember what we did:

Round ONE:

dead fish - 1 min
swimmer - 2 mins
bird dog - 3 mins (1.5 mins per side)

Round TWO:

mule kick - 1 min
ab crunches w/ legs bent @ 90° angle - 2 mins
hand to foot touches - 3 mins
Run 2 laps

Round THREE:

jumping jacks - 1 min
Squat jumps - 2 mins
Hip pulse - 3 mins
Run 2 laps

Round FOUR:

burpies - 1 min
extended sit ups (through legs) - 2 mins
push ups - 3 mins
(no time for another 2 laps...darn)


Fire hydrants
one sided leg lifts (both sides)
laying down toe touches
leg climbers

That's about it.

If you're wondering about Paige's performance last night, it was much better than the past few nights. Her friend wasn't there...which may have had (most likely was) something to do with her perseverance.

Again...I apologize that I'm not more enthusiastic this entry...perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my sleep (for the past few nights anyway) has been sporadic thanks to a certain little 2 year old...whom we shall refer to as Goldilocks.

Even the best of us have to have a "down time". Don't be too hard on yourself. I have no doubt that you'll snap out of it and have a good workout next time. Hang in there.....Love you always! Mom
