30 day squat challenge

Firstly, huge apologies for being MIA for a while!

Secondly, injury update! My ankle is healing slowly, so very slowly. I can walk it on now, pretty much normally again. it is still a little tender to touch, and I have reduced flexibility in it because of the ligament damage – if I turn it too far one way or the other it hurts, also when pressure is on it.

And back to the post’s title!

I found this online today, so I’ve decided to do it. here’s the rundown:

Day 1-50 squats
Day 2-55 squats
Day 3-60 squats
Day 4-Rest
Day 5-70 squats
Day 6-75 squats
Day 7-80 squats
Day 8-Rest
Day 9-100 squats
Day 10-105 squats
Day 11-110 squats
Day 12-Rest
Day 13-130 squats
Day 14-135 squats
Day 15- 140 squats
Day 16-Rest
Day 17-150 squats
Day 18- 155 squats
Day 19- 160 squats
Day 20-Rest
Day 21- 180 squats
Day 22- 185 squats
Day 23- 190 squats
Day 24-Rest
Day 25- 220 squats
Day 26- 225 squats
Day 27- 230 squats
Day 28-Rest
Day 29- 240 squats
Day 30- 250 squats

My thinking is, I can do these with my weights as well, or I can do them along side swimming, and maybe once my ankle is better alongside Jillian’s 30 Day Shred!

I’ve printed a chart with the amounts of squats on it, so I can cross them off each day and know where I am with them. I hope I stick with this.

Weigh in

Highest weight: 213 pounds

Last weeks weight: 213 pounds

This weeks weight: 211 pounds

Progress: -2 pounds

I seem to be yo-yo-ing around these figures. good news is that I’m back to healthy eating this week, and will maybe be able to get back to some exercise-depending on how well my ankle takes it! Swimming is always on the cards, but walking to and from the leisure centre could be difficult. We shall see.

I would like to be under 210 at my next weigh in.

Injury Update

Ankle injury is slowly on the mend! looks bruised and is still a little swollen, but it’s getting easier to walk on it. Unless the pavement isn’t flat, or I’m going uphill/downhill…

want to get back into doing Jillians 30 day shred as soon as possible. Without causing myself further injury! Also walking to work without it hurting would be nice!


weigh in day!

Put back on the 2 pounds I lost, but that’s not a big deal, or a big surprise  It’s my birthday tomorrow so have been a little naughty over the weekend with my food!

once I’m back to normal eating and exercising I’m sure it will drop off again!

Injury update: swelling has started to go down on my ankle, and its easier to put weight on it, still sore though! I’m hoping for a quick recovery, although with the snow that’s currently falling I’m concerned I’ll slip and hurt it more!

30DS: day 10 – level 2

I missed a day yesterday because I was shattered when I got in after working on a show. A bit annoyed at myself for not doing it.

made a last minute decision to start level 2 today instead of tomorrow, it’s more intense and I couldn’t do some of the moves because my arms already felt like jelly without going back into another plank position.

Hopefully I’ll be better at it tomorrow.

30DS: Day 9

I almost didn’t do my workout today. I’ve been working in a theatre all day and evening so have been on my feet for most of the time, and am quite tired. However, because I was naughty with my food today (really bad – chips and biscuits) I thought I can’t really get away with not dong it, and I also didn’t want to miss a day. Having said that, I didn’t work as hard as I would normally because of having sore feet blah blah.

I’m glad I did do it, at least I’ll sleep soundly tonight!
