This weekend, MAKE ME BOLDER.


3'05" modified plank (hands and knees)
40 minutes Wii Fit
tons of walking at the mall

48 minute brisk walk
Days 6 and 7 of boot camp strength training
30 minutes of stretching

40 minutes Wii Fit
Day 2 of boot camp strength training
30 minutes of stretching

emoticon 1. DH took pictures of me and Friday night I posted them as my baseline for this challenge.

emoticon 2. I added fiber, sodium, and iron to my nutrition tracker.

emoticon 3. I held a modified plank (knees and hands) for 3 minutes and 5 seconds.

emoticon 4. I already have two abbreviated full body workouts that I don't use: a video for at home and a weight machine workout for the gym. So I'm going to stick with those. I haven't been using them because I've been doing the 7 day bootcamp videos instead.

emoticon 5. I did 60 minutes of flexibility training, using SP's daily and advanced stretching routine.

emoticon 6. Okay, so I went off the reservation for motivational maintenance. But it totally worked. Friday I went clothes shopping and bought a bunch of spring and summer clothes, mostly in 12s and mediums. That's down from a 16 and large at the beginning of this year, 7 short weeks ago. The rest of the weekend I washed all my clothes, including the stuff I brought up from the basement this week, and made room for them in my drawers by removing things that are now too big for me. This is the gift of motivation that will keep on giving: I'll feel great about myself and motivated to work hard every time I put on one of these items.

So where does the boldness come in?

emoticon I pushed myself with flexibility, doing things I didn't think I could do.

emoticon I chose some new recipes when planning meals for the week.

emoticon Oooh, clothes shopping. The pink leopard print skirt I bought for work and the pink front-zip dress I bought to wear to my grandpa's 80th birthday party are definitely bold. Particularly the pink dress: it shows off my cleavage nicely, and I plan to wear it with a teal cardi and brown sexy boots. Maybe even white fishnets, if I'm still feeling this bold in a couple of weeks. But that may be a bridge too far for rural Wisconsin. emoticon
