Day 3! How are you all getting on? I love these ones! Enjoy!xx
Here is Day 2!
Bikini and board short season is fast approaching so here is the challenge for May… a NEW Core exercise every single day! If you have been following me you will have been doing your 100 Functional Squats AND or Lunges every day in March, then we added in 30 functional press ups every day, so now in May here is the core challenge…
Watch the video and give it a go!
Good morning all!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!
I have to admit I have been feeling a little sorry for myself, last week I had a bit of a cold and was feeling a bit stessed about moving house. I kept my diet very clean (as always) but my exercise slipped, I still did some, but not enough, which is silly as I know that working out always makes me feel awesome!
68 days ago I made a promise to myself that I would be able to do 30 full, on my toes, functional press ups by christmas and have washboard abs. There is nothing I love more about Christmas than being able to fully enjoy the day, feeling clean, lean and fitting in my jeans!
When I was younger and far heavier and very unhealthy, Christmas used to be a day of binging, eating chocolate all morning, stuffing a Veggie nut roast etc. in followed by a not-that-tasty deserts and then not-so-good cheap, nasty chocolates, even eating the ones I hated, as they were all that were left. I would then feel sick, wake up the next day with a headache, clothes feeling tighter and doing it all again.
So last night Matt and I were talking and it hit me that with everything going on that I couldn’t change, the one thing I did control was my attitude towards our situation.
I realised it is 22 days until Christmas and I know it takes 21 days to either break a habit or make a new one, so I decided there and then that I still have time to reach all of my goals (not extend the time frame!).
I have the next 21 days to do some really positive things and create some new habits!
1. Goal- 30 Press ups – I will do my press ups every morning before my green smoothie
2. Goal – 2 Full Pull-ups – I will hang from my bar every day and get a partner to support me in assisted pullups
3. Goal – To feel more energised – I will think about everything I have and how lucky I am instead of what is hard, after all, it is character building! Every time I think I can’t be bothered I will do 20 multi plane star jumps or burpies, to get the heart pumping!
I hope this post inspires you to kick defeat in the butt and that anything is possible! It is never too late!
I will post my video of my Christmas day abs and press ups in 22 days!
What will you do before Christmas?
Have a great Christmas!
I have set up a youtube channel at www.youtube.com/AimieSmithPT where I will add more and more exercises for you all to enjoy!
