I only got through about a week of the first whittle my middle challenge by Angela at Oh She Glows. This time, I’m determined to go the distance. I’m going to be posting my workouts here in order to keep myself accountable and see my progress.

Here are my starting stats:

High waist (smallest point): 33 inches
Waist: 37 inches
Hips: 39.5 inches

Day 1:

  • Front plank: 60 seconds
  • Side plank:  30 seconds each side
  • Torso twists: 15 reps each side
  • Plank ups: 10 reps
  • Boat pose: 30 seconds
  • Bicycle: 30 reps
  • Side plank w/ twists:  8 reps each side

I’m stealing this new challenge from Lisa at School of Raw – from her “Release your inner chubby child challenge”

30 days of running.

*gasp*

Rules are simple: Run every day for 30 days. Doesn’t matter how far, though I’m shooting for at least a half mile each day. I’m even gonna allow myself a little bit of walking in there if I need to.

Why do this? Why not? I’ve slacked off for a while and need to get back to doing something. And I figure now is a good time before the snow makes things very difficult/dangerous.

Stats for Day 1: (Thursday)

1.46 miles (via mapmyrun.com) in 17:20

Think I can do this? (Even if you don’t, please lie. I cry easily.)
