Juneathon 2016 – Week 1

So it’s that time of year again and my second Juneathon! Can’t believe we’re already halfway through 2016!!! Where is the time going!?! Anyway, I digress, back to Juneathon – this time, though, we don’t have to do a daily blog post, but I think a weekly round-up of the exercise I’ve been up to would be good (it’ll help me remember what I’ve been up to – my memory is appalling, I blame the kids ;-P)! So here we go…

Day 1
20 Squats
20 Bicep Curls (under own body weight)
Fitness Blender workout – HIIT Cardio Butt and Thigh Workout 5 Day Challenge to Burn Fat and Build Lean Muscle Day 5 – I did this at my mum and dad’s house and unfortunately didn’t bring my weights with me, but it was still an intense workout!
Finished with a 30-second plank and 30-second side plank repeated twice.

Day 2
20 Squats
Then an arm workout with 1.5kg weights (20 bicep curls, 20 upright rows, 20 tricep kickbacks, 20 overhead shoulder presses and 15 bent over reverse fly) repeated 3 times
30-second plank and 30-second side plank twice

Janathon Day 17 – Weights and Workout Outfit

Today was a more relaxed effort, I went to church in the morning with the small people and then this afternoon the socialite that is my Pink One had a birthday party to attend. It was a really good party, where the kids had about an hour to play on gymnastics equipment – so again doing her own bit for Janathon!

My contribution today was playing with the new weights that I purchased yesterday! I used the 1kg weights and did the following four exercises from the recommendation list:
FullSizeRenderBicep Curl – 20 reps each arm

Front Elevations – 20 reps each arm

Side Elevations – 20 reps each arm

Trapezius Muscles – 20 reps

I repeated this work out three times – at the moment I feel ok – tomorrow I am sure I will moan every time I move my arms! Haha!!!

Just for your viewing pleasure a blooper too!

In the meantime for a bit of fun – a competition to win some vouchers with farfetch.com – coming up with your must have workout outfit… this is what I would have (purely for aesthetic reasons for the majority of it – I wanted some colour) if I had an
unlimited budget…
Workout Outfit1. Buff Headgear Nia – this one is gorgeous, may very well be my next Buff purchase and at £15 it’s pretty reasonable!
2. M&S Tropical Print Cropped Leggings – £22.50
3. M&S Tropical Print Vest – £19.50
4. M&S High Impact Non-Padded T Back Crop Top  – £16
5. Saucony Women’s Peregrine 5 – adore my current Saucony’s – love the colour of these ones, but don’t know if they’d suit my running style! – £59.99 (normally £100 – 40% off)

I’d quite like this very cute bag off of Farfetch too but it’s a smidge out of my budget at £823 – haha!!!
