Exciting Day 1



My day started with the exiting news that Osama bin Laden is DEAD! ...it's been a long time coming! I'm so happy to hear that our troops were successful and we AMERICANS have a great reason to celebrate today!!

Excitement for our Sizzilin' in 6 contest has been flowing in all day- We've had TONS (several hundreds) of people sign up for the contest and I can't wait to see pounds of fat melt off the hundreds of ladies who are committed to the contest.

In today's Day 1 email I assigned you 4 tasks-
#1- Visit my the blog post to get the day's workout and motivation (all of these are public www.blog.buffmother.com)
#2- Clean up your diet- commit to limiting or eliminating candy/dessert/alcohol for the contest
#3- Take starting stats and pictures (get this done this week)
#4- Post daily comment on the featured blog post on www.blog.buffmother.com for your accountability

Items #1 and #4 are things you should plan to do the entire 42 days of the contest...by reading a daily reminder about the contest daily and posting a comment you'll be helping yourself and everyone else stay engaged and involved.

My day 1 has been so full of excitement that I'm just now prepping for a workout. My Monday's are always busy and often a rest day, but since I've committed to working out "EVERY DAY IN MAY" I'd better get it done!! In May of 2009 I did the same challenge successfully- so I know it can be done: http://blog.buffmother.com/1098/i-did-it/

My plan is to do Upright bike/push up/seated sprints as a circuit for my intervals- bike 2 mins, 15 push ups, sprint with my arms only 50 reps- repeat 5 times.

Time for this Momma to get her sweat on!

UPDATE- I did it, done at 10:40PM

Got my workout done- it was a good one- took just about 20 mins:
Upright bike/push up/seated sprints as a circuit for my intervals- bike 2 mins, 15 push ups, sprint with my arms only 50 reps each arm- repeat 5 times.
Fyi on those seated sprints (great for any one with leg injuries) this is what I mean: Sit on your butt on the floor with your feet out in front of you and mover your arms like you are jogging- after 1 min move your arms like you are sprinting fast!! do that for 60 seconds- rest for 1 min with jogging speed arm movement- repeat. It's a great interval workout without using your legs~ ♥ NO EXCUSES!!
