10 Days In {Challenge Update}

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 days since I started the Fall into Fitness 30 Day Challenge. I’ve sure been blogging a lot more than normal which has its pro’s and con’s.  I don’t know how people can find time to blog every day and sometimes 2-3 times a day – hat’s off to you folks!


During the 30 day challenge you can accumulate “points” in three categories: number of posts, workouts and pounds lost. This is where I am at as of today:

Blog posts: 9 (all tagged “Fall into Fitness 30 Day Challenge)

Pounds lost: 0 – I never weighed myself before the workout as I decided two months ago to not bother will the scale anymore. I did weigh myself the other day and am happy where I am at…but it’s not a focus for me in this challenge.

Hours of workouts: 5 hours and 32 minutes (in 10 days)

Day 1: 29 minutes (10 minute walk, 15 minute Bob Harper Workout, 4 minute Thigh challenge)

Day 2: REST

Day 3: 44 minutes (30 minute walk, 10 minute Yoga Flex DVD, 4 minute Thigh challenge)

Day 4: 26 minutes (ran 21 minutes – 3k with Hilary in stroller  and 5 minute thigh challenge)

Day 5: 65 minutes (Zumba class for 1 hour, 5 minute thigh challenge)

Day 6: 25 minutes (25 minute walk with Maclean, Lilly and Hilary in her stroller)

Day 7: 67 minutes (60 minute soccer game, 7 minute thigh challenge)

Day 8: 8 minutes (8 minute thigh challenge) Took the day off working out

Day 9: 68 minutes (60 minute soccer game, 8 minutes thigh challenge – starting to get rough)

Day 10 – today – REST day from thigh challenge and taking the day off

*hour of workouts – if you could have only seen me trying to calculate all the times: 25 min here, 4 minutes there, 60 minutes here and here…. even though I knew how long each workout took at the time, I didn’t add it up very well when I was doing it* dang.

easy is boring

Changes for the next 10 Days:

  1. Record my minutes every day.
  2. Workout longer so I can have an even 30 – 60 -80 minutes…none of this 4, 7, 8 minutes. That’s messed up. So if the thigh challenge takes me 9 minutes, I will do sit-ups, jumping jacks etc until I can round it to the nearest 10.
  3. Post more recipes and meal planning of week 2 (already started)
  4. Weigh myself in 10 days to see if I lost any weight … to gain a point of course 🙂

Are you doing any challenges?

How is it going?

Anyone doing the Fall into Fitness challenge, how’s it going?

  1. That’s cool that you don’t weigh yourself. Scale weight is such a lie. I always went by how I looked, felt and inches!

    and WAY to go. I can’t wait till I am up to more than walking 🙂
