Today’s post is going to be a bit short and sweet, tomorrow’s probably will be too. I had to take my oldest to the Dr yesterday for fever/sore throat. Yeap she’s got strep throat. All the kids plus daddy shared a water jug over the weekend while building fence, so my days are about to get even busier with sick kiddos. I already have 4 others that I think have got it.
Anyway, for the Fitness Challenge!
Challenge 1: Active Challenge: set an alarm to go off every hour and take 1-2 minutes to stand/stretch/walk around. I so did not do this one! I rarely get to sit around at all, half the time I’m even standing when typing because the kids are all helping me. I can honestly say the only time that I was sitting yesterday was when I was driving. So, check on this one.
Challenge 2: Exercise Challenge: Spend 5-10 minutes with a light warm up of light cardio. They suggested walking in place. I did some half hearted chasing of kids around the house for 10 minutes in the morning. Check on this one. The second half was to do 9 different exercises with a weight. I do have a pair of 5lb weights, and had planned to use them to do these, but I did not find the time what with taking my daughter to the Dr and having sick kiddos. Non check on this one
Challenge 3: Flexibility Challenge: This came with a list of stretches which I did do in the morning before having to go to the Dr’s. I was only able to do 3 of the 5 because I do not have an exercise ball, but I’m still giving myself a check for this one!
Challene 4: Nutrition Challenge: Cravings. . . . so I did have a craving yesterday. . . and I gave in to it!!! Yeap fail on this one, lol. I had a dark chocolate raspberry candy by Dove and it was so yummy. As for meals. . . . I was not such a good girl here yesterday. I skipped breakfast to get out of the house to get to the Dr’s. Lunch for the kids was sandwiches with chips, fresh cherries, and carrots. I grabbed a few cherries(yes I know very bad of me). Supper was leftover potato salad, lettuce salad, fruit salad, and steaks/brats. I had a brat and some lettuce salad.
Challenge 5: Mind/Body Challenge: Take five minutes to massage your hands or get a manicure. Well first, I’ve never had a manicure at all in my entire life. Second, I did not have a chance to give myself a hand massage. The only thing I did that was close to this was milking my goats.
