Weigh in

Last time I weighed in I was 211 pounds. since then I put on 4 pounds, right up to 215, and lost a pound a week for the last 2 weeks.

Current weight: 213 pounds

Long Term Goal: 130 pounds

Short term goal: 210 pounds

Still going with the 30 day squat challenge, day 12 for me today – rest day. I have a huge deadline for the end of this week, so it’s unlikely I’ll be doing extra working out around that – other than walking to work/rehearsals/whatnot.

My wall chart has almost run out of weeks, I’ll have to make a new one soon enough! I think this time I’ll make it on an A4 sheet, and only have 20 or so pounds on there, then if I get close to the bottom I can make another sheet. Probably be easier than making another giant one!

Still logging food on my fitness pal, even if I’ve been eating badly.

Really want to shift this weight!

I haven’t been doing all of the modifications, but I have been trying to do as least one set with the modification included!
time to get cracking with my split jump squats. Wonder how many I’ll be able to manage?!

Update: only managed 10 split jumps! my ankle was not pleased with me jumping on it. Did 30 curtsy squats and 70 normal to get the 110 all together.

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.

30DS: Day 5

Still struggling with the push ups, but I’ve not given up on them yet. I hope I wont.

Literally have sweat running down my face, gross, but I’m thinking of it as fat leaving the body.

Feel more motivated to do this, heard from my family today and they are all doing well with their own weight goals, so I need to keep it up or be the fat one in the family! 😉

I pushed harder on the cardio parts today, and I didn’t stop as much during the strength section as I did at the beginning-just in the push ups.

Also went swimming  today, did 16 lengths, 1/4 mile. Probably a good thing after my overeating yesterday!

Absolutely no need for a rest day, could’v done with one yesterday but  I chose not to have one. Feeling good about keeping up with this.
