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!!! 😛 xxxRead More »

Ducking Boxercise!

By this I mean we did lots of ducking and diving, not that I tried to get out of it! As if I would, my Boxercise is my weekly sanity lifeline – this is one of things that really helps with my anxiety! Multiple benefits of exercise, not being able to think of anything else and possibly the fun of getting to hit things!!! A good stress reliever!

So for the warm up, there were slow jabs to one side, then fast jabs, then repeated on the other side. Skipping, skipping from one side to the other. A skip back, then skip forward touch the ground – this needed coordination which I seem to be slightly lacking in! High legs jogging on the spot and various other things – whew, we were well and truly warmed up!Read More »
