Can you believe November went by so quickly?
Earlier in November I announced that I participated in two challenges for the month right HERE!
The first was this 30 day Push Up Variations Challenge!
I’m extremely happy to say that I made it through in one piece and pretty much on track. I fell behind when I went to Toronto but it overlapped a rest day so it wasn’t all too bad. The challenge gets extremely crazy once we start the higher reps of one leg push ups then diamond push-ups are hard to keep the right posture, and plyo push-ups was just SUPER HARD! Plus, I had this feeling that plyo push-ups might possibly hurt my wrists, so I had to be gentle with it (as much as I could?) Definitely worth it though. I felt a huge improvement in my whole muscular endurance on my upper body in my arms and shoulders and chest also. 🙂 Its a good way to build up the whole mastering your full-body push-ups and get out of the modified/girl push-ups.
Next up is the 30 day Crunch Challenge!
For crunches, it was a lot harder apparently to just go on your back anywhere and do them. So, I fell behind multiple times and ended up doing one day of over 400 reps of crunches in 3 sets. That was really intense and I didn’t fall behind after that. I learned my lesson! Never again! The crunch challenge was pretty painful, going from 50 reps to 250 was pretty crazy. I did most of the last few days between 180-250 reps in intervals of 50 reps with a little break in between of about 30 seconds. It does help a lot, so I’m guessing if I didn’t fall behind, the experience would’ve been a lot more “enjoyable”.
I was going to keep these updates at a biweekly or even monthly level but with Dietbet right now. I think I’ll start doing a different form of weekly workout roundups to show you some progress. No worries! I’ll keep those before after pictures to myself ;). But just saying, my weigh-in picture wasn’t all too bad. I talked about it HERE! Bring it on! I’m going to drop 136.9 to 130.5 lbs! Today is the first day of that challenge and so far so good 🙂 I just need to figure out what workout to do tonight and for the rest of the week preferably!
I’ll get stuff organized soon, okay? Although, don’t we all love some spontaneity? Hmm..but wait, it seems spontaneity is everyday now…haha!
Expect some eating habit change updates along with weekly weigh-ins and workout roundups for the next 4 weeks 🙂
Wish me luck! Have any of you done Dietbets before?
