Mission Accomplished

By Marensmorsels @marentweets

Hey Guys! It’s officially Day 1, 9:58am pacific time, and I’m one workout down and one breakfast down of…. wait for it…. wait for it….

66 workouts and ~310 meals/snacks!

let the count down begin.


So make it 65 workouts!

Do you want to know what I did? I did a Nike Training Club circuit on my iPhone and it was HARD! I had everything someone beginning to work out suffers from.

  • I felt like I would vomit once
  • I had to make my 1 minute rest time in the middle about 10 minutes
  • I couldn’t even do one of the exercises, those darn burpee things

I did a Get Lean, according to my plan in the intermediate category. Maybe this was too hard, but usually the beginner exercises are just too easy for me. I picked The Shredder because it sounded good.

Warm Up

  • 2 min straight leg kicks
  • 2 min back pedal
  • 1 min slide and glide
  • 1 min recover

Work Out

  • 2 min alternating forward lunge with arm curl
  • 1 min plank
  • 30 sec tuck jumps
  • 2 min side lunge with medicine ball rotation
  • 2 min ski jumps with medicine ball
  • 1 min reverse crunches
  • 1 min hip lifts
  • 2 min single leg deadlift dumbbell row (this was so hard!)
  • 1 min burpee to shoulder press
  • 30 sec squat flips with 180 degree turns
  • 1 min push away balance
  • 1 min recover (try about 10)
  • 2 min plank row (I couldn’t even do this one, the plank holding the free weights really hurt my hands so I did 1 min plank and then 1 min rows)
  • 1 min reverse crunches
  • 30 sec modified burpee
  • 1 min push away balance
  • 30 sec kick downs

Cool Down

  • 1 min lying quad stretch
  • 1 min standing hamstring stretch
  • 2 min pretzel stretch

The good news, is my ankle feels great. It’s handling today’s workout great. I think changing up my workouts and not doing the same thing over and over really helps. Running is just too reparative.


Breakfast, despite feeling like I might up-chuck was Dannon Greek yogurt with some Barbara’s Blend granola. Why change up something that’s perfect?



Question of the Day

Are you making plans to get ready for Beach Season?
