So we are checking in ladies… this is how we got on..
Day 1: Sunday
I have a really weird appetite and have done ever since I was young so today I only had dinner but I managed to do my 100 sit-ups with ease surprisingly!! Let’s see if it’s this easy tomorrow!! Lol
Day 2: Monday
Had little snacks in the afternoon and did my hair. Did 100 sit-ups and some bicycle crunches then had a small dinner.
Day 3: Tuesday
Had to run some errands so was walking around in the afternoon. Had a dinner of beef stirfry and noodles. However, went to a friends house in the evening so did not get to do any exercises but will double up and do 200 sit-ups tomorrow. God help me! Lol
Day 4: Wednesday
Had a small breakfast of bread and tea so did not snack throughout the afternoon.
Stayed true to my word and did the 200 sit-ups!!
Weren’t as bad as I was expecting but weren’t as easy a the 100!
Day 5: Thursday
Did not do any exercises
Day 6: Friday
Went to the Big Brother Live Eviction with Sonia so no exercises and Sonia forced me to have McDonalds! BAD SONIA
I say forced but I was the one that asked her to take me to the drive thru for just an apple pie but I got a burger to go with it aswell LOOL!
Day 7: Saturday
Was out with friends so was not home for most of the day.
Ate at a nice Turkish restaurant by the London Eye in the afternoon.
I ordered rice, salad and some meat.
Nothing too calorific. Didn’t exercise but will make up for it by skipping and going badminton next weekend.
After this 1st week it’s fair to say because I’m always out and about it’s hard for me to take time out to do sit-ups everyday.
I will change my goal to doing at least 100 sit-ups and/or bicycle crunches 3 times a week. I will accompany this with a better diet and more walking and skipping. xoxo
Day One @ the gym
So today was great, started off doing stretches and then ran on the machine for 12 minutes reaching level 9 for at least 5 minutes of it. I then went on some machines that work out the abs, the inner thighs and the outer thighs and bum muscles. Went in the steam room for 10 minutes & hey i feel great! We’ll see how i feel in the morning though lol. Day One down and i’m feeling good!
Day Two @ gym
Day two went well i done a full 20 minutes on the machine today reaching 9 for some part of it, but i tell you that did not last long i was knackered lol.. I then went on to all the machines leaving out the chest machines as i do not see the need for them in my routine. I then went into the steam room for 10 minutes. I left today feeling energised which was a good feeling. My abs are hurting today though :S
Day 3, 4 & 5 – Rest day
I have just been going about my day to day duties. I was going to do some hula hooping today but my abs would really hurt if i did, maybe i need to not go so hard on the abs. But i now have a regime that i have made up for myself when i go back to the gym so i know what i am doing to get my results i want. Trying to find some apps to keep track of my calorie intake.
Day six @ gym
I went into the gym today with a plan! The plan worked well i have left feeling like i have worked out but without the pain. Feeling more tired today though after my work out :-/ dunno why but off home i go to do some cooking.
Day seven – Rest day
So i have done my 3 days at the gym this week which for me is such an achievement i am well happy with myself lol. Time for a nice shake and i will be starting again tomorrow. I have also decided to do my weight check and body analysis at the end of the 2 months because i feel if i do it weekly the process may feel like it is taking too long.
How have you guys found the first week?
I was out and about on my daily business and i saw a nail shop doing ‘Shellac nails’. Me and Annie have had a conversation earlier in the week about this and I had a spare 30 minutes and crazy enough thats all i needed to get this treatment done. It is simply a polish that goes on like gel but comes off like polish and does not ruin your nails!
So i have given it ago, it comes in some real nice colours I opted for the hot pink “as i do” and loved it.
Hot pink bottom right
The treatment consists of:
Base coat – UV light – 2nd coat – UV light – 3 rd coat – UV light – clear top coat – UV light.
Then hey presto I had nails that were ready to go cause trust me i am a BIG loser when it comes to doing my nails i will always smudge them but this time i have perfect nails in under 30 minutes! Its well worth a go ladies and if they last me 14 days like they are supoosed too i will be even more happy! I will update you guys in two week… Now me and my hot pink nails are off to Westfields!
When we set off on our journey to achieving ‘healthy hair’ we also made the pledge that when we get to a stage of having good routines and in a comfortable place with our hair to move on to achieving our ‘healthy body’. Well, that time has come and the 2 month challenge is in full flow tomorrow the 12th of September 2011. We will be keeping diaries over the 2 months and will be letting you guys into our thoughts and routines through the lows & the highs, we will also be talking about the effects this healthy living may have on our hair also, noting the changes we see….
Next we have included the ways we are going to be achieving our healthy bodies as there is two of us we have different ways, times and routines.
In my 2 month challenge I will be attending the gym at least 3 times a week, doing both fitness regimes and using the sauna and steam rooms. I want to build up my fitness and stamina. When I was younger I was very involved in sports such as badminton & football and always very good at these sports too. I am very slim but have a bit of a midsection after having two children and want to tone up, so my goal is not to loose weight but to start toning straight away and maybe build some muscle. Wish me luck as it has been a very long time since I have embarked on any proper fitness regime since leaving school!
I am very happy with my figure and constantly get compliments but I know how my stomach USED to be and would love to get back my flat washboard (light 6pack).
When I was younger I was involved in athletics and various other sports however, over time I have become very lazy and complacent.
My fitness regime will not strict as I do not particularly like anything that feels strenuous or feels to much like manual labour and pain. Lol
I do not want to lose weight at all as I love my african thighs and booty too much, I only want to tone and flatten my stomach.
To achieve this I will do a minimum of 100 situps a day along with some bicycle crunches, planks and side crunches. I will team this with skipping, a better diet, badminton and little touches like wearing heels shopping (toning the legs whilst not even realising it! Lol)
Our first check in will be on the 18th of September 2011.
Let us know your experiences and if you would like to join us in this challenge.
