Juneathon 2016 – Week 3

Bit late posting this, sorry about that, had a manic day just running around doing errands! Can’t believe the third week is complete! It’s crazy how fast June is going by!

Day 15
Three Fitness Blender workouts to make one complete workout!
https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/fun-10-minute-abs-and-obliques-workout-quick-10-minute-abs-workout-for-a-toned-stomach – Has the word ‘fun’ in the name of the workout, not quite sure that’s how I’d describe it personally, but it was very good!
Add in an additional core workout before the cool down – 20 second plank, 20 second right plank, 3 backward push ups, 20 second left plank and 3 sit ups. I watch a program with my kids called Operation Ouch – which proved you can take more pain if you distract yourself, so I tried this when doing my planks and guess what – it worked! I closed my eyes and imagined I was on a beautiful beach – actually ended up with one of my side planks being 28 seconds!!!
I’ve also completed 3 hours of house work!!! Whew!!! πŸ˜› xxxDay 16
Amongst exercise I also posted my 40 before 40 blog post!!!

This morning I went for a gentle run, covered 4km and it was my first solid 20 minute run since March – Yay! πŸ‘πŸ»

Then did an arm workout with 1.5kg weights and some core work.

This evening I had my awesome one hour Boxercise class – love it for the exercise and also being able to vent my frustrations… If you want to smile, watch the video!

Day 17
AΒ gentle day, need some recovery time, so 15 squats, 5 push ups (on my knees – can’t do full ones yet), 20 jumping jacks, 20 crunches and 5 more push ups. Then a 20 second plank, 20 second right side plank, 3 backward push ups, 20 second left side plank and 3 sit ups!

Day 18
A Fitness Blender workout – 24 minute ab blasting interval – at home abs workout
Arm workout with 1.5kg weights
Fitness Blender cool down – Total Body Cool Down – compound movements for a total body stretch

Day 19
A rest day, but I can’t completely do nothing, so there were 25 squats, 5 push ups, 20 jumping jacks, 30 crunches and another 5 push ups. This was followed by a 20 second plank, 20 second right side plank, 3 backwards push ups, 20 second left side plank and 3 sit ups!

Day 20
Another Fitness Blender routine! It was hard work – there was a lot of jumping that my body didn’t want to comply with! Haha!


Day 21
Fitness Blender tabata workout – so each exercise was for 20 seconds on 10 seconds rest, repeated 8 times!!! At the start of each one it feels good – by 5th/6th time my arms would be shaking!!! They’re not wrong calling it intense!


Lovely food from the week!

Keep going all, we’re on the final week! We can do it! πŸ™‚ xxx
