Week 24 and photos

What's Motivating Me This Week?
I feel so strong at the moment. I have had to take my exercise pants in this week - by adding darts or shortening the elastics.

What's Puzzling Me This Week?
Should I get jazz shoes? My current shoes just don't do it for my when I'm at Zumba because they are just too grippy.

What's Bugging Me This Week?
For the last few weeks I have had really tight calves.  I've been doing extra stretches for them and use my water bottle to roll the muscle - I'll need to get a foam roller next week when I'm near shops. In the meantime I am worried that it will led to major damage.

What's Encouraging Me This Week? 

My husband said to me this morning that he has is crazy funny girl back again.

What's the Plan?
This week is the last week of school, so soon I will be back on holidays but I will be travelling so although I would love to comment to a Jillian Michaels' challenge again, I don't think I will be able to for a large part of that time will be camping.

Anyway I'm about fun and fit this week!


I decided to just go without the camisole - so you can see it.

 So not happy with my back -the fat rolls make my stomach tighten. But check out that butt! Can you tell I had to bring the back seam of these pants in by 4cm?

This isn't too bad. Again - two darts added taking another 2 cms out each.

Not a skinny chic - but getting smaller every time.

Saturday, June 9, 2012 has an interval timer you can download. I downloaded it but haven't tried it yet. The online one works well.

My sister-in-law emailed me this link, The Highly Sensitive Person.  This is so me and I probably need to get that book.

Fat Girl Running is a new to me BLOG - I hate running so I don't understand why someone would actually volunteer to do it, but she is so funny and so motivated. Love reading it.

Week 23

What's Motivating Me This Week?
Last Thursday at Zumba the person behind me came up to me after the workout and told me that I looked good, the instructor also said that I have great legs.

What's Puzzling Me This Week?
I got my Swiss ball blown up this week and have been using it as my office chair.  I don't think it is hard enough though. How full should it be?

What's Bugging Me This Week?
Nothing much - I ate my dagwood dog, had an ice-cream cone and bought lots of fairy floss yesterday, but I'm okay with that! I also did well in the photography sections - husband came runner up for the whole show.  So I'm pretty chuffed with myself.  I do have heaps of marking and report cards to write still... but nothing about my health is bugging me.
What's Encouraging Me This Week? 
That I didn't find level 1 of 'Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred' too hard.  I had to stop more than a few times to pull my pants up, I did modify some of the exercises and I did my push ups against a bench. I'll keep doing that a few more weeks, I think, until it really is easy.

What's the Plan?
Workouts in pajamas to encourage me to get out of bed when it's cold.
Wednesday is now my rest day - between two Zumba nights.
Week now starts on the Saturday.

Show Time!

Well the show is in town this weekend which means show rides, dagwood dogs and fairy floss.  I'm totally going to blob out!!! I also have report cards to write -_-

So this week I did the same-ish thing as last week. Two nights of zumba, I did the Sparkpeople kickboxing video.  I skipped Wednesday's workout because I'm thinking of changing Wednesday to my rest day, and I also didn't workout Friday because I had a athletics carnival ALL day to attend.

But anyhoo,,, this morning I decided I really need to find something that I can do in my pajamas...

I found this easy video on YouTube and 'thought that's a goer!' It's a nice warm up and I did it my PJs this morning - I then did my weight ball exercises and push ups. I'm only just getting through the 10 reps I have set myself for each exercise but I'm getting better.

I also saw this, just had to watch. Despicable Me is one of my favourite movies. I had an 'I Love Evil' cup that I bought for my own Xmas present; I took it to school and used twice before someone stole it. Rat bastards.
