YouTube Fitness Challenge: 90 Days


It has been a while since I finished my boot camp and I have to confess, I have let myself go. It is so easy to be lazy. I was feeling sooo good. I felt stronger, happier and I had more energy. When you energy level is down, that is the time you really need to exercise.

I do not do these workouts to get a “perfect body” by any means because that is not what is important. I am doing this to feel betterPlease join me on this quest to get active and change bad habits into good.

I have heard that it takes 90 days to create change that lasts. Change is hard! If you will endure 90 days with me, I promise that you will feel better and your body will thank you!

I am committing to do a youtube or alternative exercise everyday for 90 days excluding Sundays. My husband is sweet enough to do this with me. Neither of us are morning people, but everyday one of us will drag each other out of bed. If you have no disipline like me, and don’t have a partner to do this with.. Let me be your partner!

I will share my workout and other tips everyday with you with a brief summary so you know what to expect. Please share with your goals, thoughts, struggles, and triumphs. 

Lets become fit and happy and accomplish something great together!

Let me be your workout partner!

I want to do this with you!

>>>>>>>Lets Begin>>>>>>>


Day 1
Goal 6am start {of coarse 6:35am came for a slow start}
Workout: 25 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

Screen Shot 2013-08-08 at 12.52.14 PM Lots of cardio, abs.. I had to do modifications like crunches on the Exercise Ball and Kettle Bell Swings helped when I got too tired.
Cool Down: Roll out with Foam Roller
Lets face it, I am not in shape. Afterwards I just laid on the ground in a pile of my own sweat.
Lets call this a good jumpstart.
Nutrition: [see this post]
Drank PlantFusion before and during workout. It is a vegan protein shake.
Drank Kefir as a recovery drink. See how to make it at home here. Recovery drinks are effective within an hour after the workout (anything with 2:1 Carb:Protein Ratio, including Low-fat Chocolate milk, to prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue)
Krill Oil Supplements to reduce joint pain, muscle soreness and arthritis and to speed up muscle repair. (better than fish oil for taste -no fishy burps) This link will take you to discount Krill Oil supplements, they are kinda pricey in the health food stores.

Results: SORE ABS

Day 2
Workout: Swim Laps and Treading Water (chose an alternative youtube video like this one)
You tube is great but It’s important to get sunshine too. Don’t be too strict with yourself, if you do something active that gets your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes, count it! I went swimming today and decided that laps would be a nice low impact workout for the day.
Cool Down: Light swimming

Leg Burnout really is the two best words to describe this video. This guy is crazy strong. My husband was able to do it all , but I had to replace all the jumping jacks with other things like couch dips, crunches, and burpies. Maybe on day 90 I will try to do it straight through with no exercise modifications.
Cool Down: Roll out with Foam Roller

This is a good arm and all over workout. I think that I would need heavier kettle bells to make this a higher calorie burning workout as it says, but that isn’t my goal. It felt good just to get up and move!
