30 Day Fitness Challenge Day 24

Oh my we are almost done.  What am I going to do once this is over?  I'm thinking I'm going to have to try to schedule into my schedule half an hour in the morning and half an hour at night to exercise.

Active Challenge:  This was the ol set an alarm to go off every hour again.  Nope didn't do that because I don't sit for that long at all.  In fact yesterday I was cleaning out some rooms so I definitely was not sitting at all.

Exercise Challenge:  Spend 30-60 minutes doing strength training for the whole body.  They gave us a series of exercises to do for this.  Here are the ones I did:  bench press(on the floor with a 10 lb bag of flour), back extensions, hammer curls, deadlifts, lunges, squats, bicycle, and sit ups.

Flexibility Challenge:  Stretch out the whole body.  Yeap did that.  I love getting a good stretch in.  I'm thinking this will become part of our gym class during school so that the kids get some good stretching in too.

Nutrition Challenge:  Get at least one fruit in with each meal/snack.  Ok so here is what we had:  breakfast was plain yoghurt(I added cherries and hemp seeds to mine, kids had strawberries in theirs), snack #1 was pretzels and grapes(my kids love to shove the grapes onto the pretzels and eat them that way), lunch was sutlers beans with a mixed fruit salad, snack #2 was apples, and supper was pizza with lettuce salad and oranges.

Mind/Body Challenge:  Three minute meditations.  I did not do this.  I did spend 3 extra minutes or more in prayer for a dear friend who had a heart attack and is in the hospital.  If you're a praying person and wish to pray for her as well that would be great.  She had to have three stints put in.  I am still praying for her throughout today and wishing I was closer so I could go see her and offer up my support.  She has been there to support me so much I want to return the favor.

And that was my day.  You can check out the rest of my days below.  Also don't forget to check out what Kandi did for the day over at Gluten Free For Jen.

  1. I totally commend you for sticking with this challenge. I would love to do something like this, but I think I'd need a personal trainer or someone like that to stand over me every day to make sure I stick with it.
