Janathon Day 28 – Boxercise is the Best!

Even though I’m still feeling a bit ropey with this cold/virus I really wanted to go to my Boxercise class in the evening! After a slight anxiety break this morning – a spilt bowl of cereal was the straw that broke the camel’s back – I also really NEEDED my Boxercise!!!

Tonight’s session was hard going – after warming up we had ropes going across the hall – we had to weave under and jab, then high knee run back – repeated three times!

Then we had to weave and hook – moving back using lunges – repeated again three times!

After these we did a leg session – there was leg lifts, leg kicks and then side leg lifts, slow then really fast – I found this section very hard going, after a few days of no exercise and my cold!

Next up was an arm session – two jabs with each hand, two hooks with each hand, two uppers with each hand and two lower uppers with each hand, followed by a one with each had and this was repeated five times! Then a boxers bounce and do it again – so four lots of five!!! Swap – repeat! Woo!!!

Then paired up again for ten fast jabs – sprint to the end of the hall, kneel down, and then punch the punch pad on the floor or, and I quote “punch the shit out of it!” – repeat three times and then do again with ten hooks!

Finally some upper work, roll down into a push up position and lower for a count of eight (I managed to four), they repeated for five times, but I managed two as when getting back up it hurt my knees!

Roll down to a push up position and then twist to the side and up to the count of ten, roll back up, and then repeated three times!

Time for a cool down! It’s was a good session – much needed and did improve my mood – just hope this virus buggers off!!! Hate feeling so achy!

Yay for Boxercise!!! 🙂 xxx

I have been a bit slack with the exercise for Juneathon Day 28 – but otherwise it’s been a busy day today!

  
Went to mass this morning where I was co-running the children’s liturgy!

Then home to do a bit of study and then out again to sing with my choir this afternoon!

Then this evening I have been working on my new logo and branding using the amazing talents of my sister!!! I’m soooo excited!!! She’s the best!!!

All to be revealed soon!!!

Wriggles and Giggles!

I had planned to go for a run this evening, but I would’ve been on my own and it was really cold and really dark and I quite quickly persuaded myself not to go! It might be me, but it seemed darker than normal tonight!

So instead I decided to involve the kids – literally, they were my gym equipment!

I had little people back lifts and little people air lifts – with increasing weights, starting with the Blue One and then finishing with the Pink One.

Air Lifts

They thought this was hilarious and thoroughly enjoyed mummy lifting them up and down! I have to say it was one of my harder workouts – far tougher then a jog, especially as my gym equipment have minds of their owns! I think I pulled something! ;-P

Lots of fun and laughter was had so that can never be a bad thing.

Probably some Wii Fit for tomorrow – but we’ll see, only three days left to go!
