June 2013 Squats Challenege + My workout Calendar

Hey people!
What’s going on!?

I’ve gotten so interested and distracted by fitness related things, sorry for the lack of posts. I do have some in the works, I’ve just been lazy about it.

But anyway, before I post this months Squats Challenge, I just want to say I kind of don’t do them any more. Don’t get me wrong, squats are great- Buuuuuut, the workouts I’m doing now pretty much incorporate a lot of squatting exercises in them AND weights, so I’m over the challenges. If you want to stick to the Squat Challenge, good luck, I’m still rooting for you! :D And if you’d like to try out what I’m doing… Good luck! Hahahaha!!

Make sure you are eating right. I was complaining to myself about how I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted from Insanity (1 week left!! thank goodness- am debating on starting another round or going into P90x), and that reason is my fault for not eating properly the first month. I was still occasionally eating a lot of junk, basically whatever I wanted. I immediately changed that the 2nd month. I even stopped drinking alcohol. x__x
I eat lots of grilled or baked chicken/fish, hella vegetables and fruits, egg whites, oatmeal, TONS of water, and fruit/veggie smoothies. Yep, it’s all I eat/drink now. (Occasionally I’ll have a protein bar- I can’t afford protein shakes yet, and I can’t use my dad’s- it’s specially made for people with diabetes *sigh*)

And I’ve been going to bed on time now. 10 PM-ish, waking up at 5 AM-ish to run on my treadmill or neighborhood. You get so much more done when you wake up early. o_o

One more thing……. I’m not a freakin’ fitness instructor or anything like that. Consult your physician/speak to a professional fitness instructor before attempting these exercises. I’m merely sharing what *I* do and tips on what MIGHT work for you too.

April 2013 Squat Challenege

I have a confession….

 

I didn’t complete the Squat Challenge I set for myself! Hahaha!

I could give you a few reasons as to why I didn’t (lazy, consumed by school) but, one reason NOT being because it was hard. Like I said, I just fell off of my routine. I got about halfway through.

With April quickly approaching I set out to find a new challenge and this time I’m determined to stick to it! And I’ll take before and afters to see if there is any change.

I’m going to post two calendar versions by the way. The first is definitely more hardcore (I’m going to do this one), but for those who want something that starts off a little easier, I went and put one together (because I couldn’t find anything anywhere!) Same rules apply!

 

So here they are, whose with me!?
