Day 40

I made it! I made it! 40 days, and not once did I skip. Even if I wanted to!

Today I finished strong with Turbo Jam. Just the 20-minute workout, since I have to get my busy day going, but I put every ounce of energy I had into that workout. And it feels good!

Thank you, to my 2 or 3 faithful readers, for keeping me accountable. It certainly helps!

I plan to keep on going, having created a habit I can continue. Won't you join me?

I won't be blogging about it anymore, but you are always welcome to ask me how it's going. Keep me accountable. :-)

If you want to keep up with my next project, check out my other blog (which so far has only one post because I haven't made much progress yet) about my tent trailer renovation project. It's called Lemon to Lemonade Trailer Renovation at

Let's keep moving!

Happy Fitness!

Day 39

Today has been busy, but I made the time. Turbo Sculpt today, and it sure got me sweating. The good news is, I'm seeing more definition in my muscles, and that feels great! It also gives me more stamina for every day things, like holding a baby.

It was a turbulent workout today, with a screaming 4-year-old for most of it. She was mad because I confiscated the toy that she confiscated (putting it nicely) from her brother. There was a brawl. So the toy is in a time out, and she's none too happy about that. It took her about 30 minutes of the 40-minute workout to get over it.

Overcoming challenges is what it's about, right? Happy birthday to me. :-/

Well, until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!

Day 38

I'm posting on my phone today, since our wifi seems completely stuck. So you're in luck, it will be short.

I finally got around to the workout today. I did Country Line Dance. It's fun, and since I'd done some arm work putting together a dresser, I figured just leg work and cardio would be fine.

Only two days left!

Until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!

Day 37

The challenge continues. And it's almost done.

I've been busy today, and yet my house is messier than ever. Remember my IKEA trip from yesterday? I bought 12 pieces of furniture (not counting the kids' chairs that Nic put together last night while I was working out), and all of them need major assembly. I put together one of them today. One. Granted, it was probably the most complicated of the 12. Although the four dressers might give it a run for its money. So for the hours that I was getting that filing cabinet put together, what were the kids doing? Well, lets just say, this house needs some major work now. And I'm not nearly done.

But I did take a 20-minute break to do a cardio workout. Now I'm too had and sweaty to do anything else. It almost feels counter-productive. And yet, I need to continue.

Well, I'm off to do damage control. If I can figure out where to start.

Until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!

Days 35 & 36

The weekend has come and gone already.

Friday I woke up early to work out, and did the 20-minute cardio on Turbo Jam. I had to leave with two kids for the weekend by 7 am in order to make it (barely) for my brother's portfolio review. So, needless to say, I didn't blog about it. But I did, in fact, get the workout in.

Today, I've been traveling, shopping (with two said kids at IKEA, not fun), and sightseeing all day. I'm finally home, and believe me, I didn't want to work out. But thanks to some encouragement from my wonderful husband, I did. Tonight it's the Turbo Sculpt, since I was wanting something a little slower. It felt good, and I'm glad I did.

But I'm tired. So, until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!

Day 34

Well, the sluggishness continued today, and I didn't drag myself to a workout until 4:00.

So there you have it. I still have down days. But I still did something.

The Country Line Dance workout video is what I chose today. I thought maybe dancing wouldn't feel like too much of a workout. I was right. It was fun, though I did sweat a significant amount. The movements themselves don't feel like a lot of work, but I'm getting something.

On that note, tomorrow I'll probably have to do an early morning workout, and this time I think I'll just do the 20-minute cardio to start my day. A good cardio workout before a long car ride...hey, it might be a good thing. I don't know.

Well, now Bug wants to do the workout, so we'll see how this goes. Until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!

Day 33

Sluggish. Tired. Lazy. Non-motivated. Ugh.

That's about how I've felt all day. Which is why I've waited until almost 4:00 to do my workout. And only did the 20-minute one. Which is OK, and I did it to the best of my ability, so there are no regrets there.

But I'm still tired. I'm still sluggish. I'm still non-motivated (which is not good, since I have a kitchen to clean and supper to make).  I wonder if I might be coming down with something. Yesterday I couldn't get enough water. Today, when I drink water, I just feel yucky. Not that it will stop me, since it's important to hydrate. But that, combined with the tired/sluggish feeling all day, makes me wonder.

Ah well, I'll fight it off and be good as new soon. So, until tomorrow:

Happy Fitness!
