    Ladylydia's 90 day challenge- Part II

    Yes i had Jujitsu on Thursday, it was a good class and we went over flow drills so my heart rate was up most of the time, and I was worn out by the end of it. I have the class Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Thursdays are always good workouts because it's for practice. Saturdays are only goo d workouts occasionally, because we usually learn new techniques and go over theory, so it's not as active.

    No walk yesterday, but 45 push ups from knees, and 55 sec plank from knees. (Can't believe it's been a month since I last did these.) Jujitsu tonight.

    Ladylydia's 90 day challenge- Part II

    Yesterday: strawberry plants, one repot, one new; replaced some lettuce that had died out, and potted several sunflower plants with alyssum as ground cover in the bedding. New this season: More lettuces, six pepper plants, 3 green, 3 assorted colors; 4 Brandywine tomatoes, 4 Cherokee purple tomatoes, Already existing from previous years: strawberry, apple mint, Greek oregano, 2 raspberry bushes, 2 blueberry bushes, and rhubarb.

    Ladylydia's 90 day challenge- Part II

    Last night I finished putting in my plants for this year. I'm going to count that as my workout because it was exhausting. It also really highlighted just how much strength I've lost over the past year. Last year and the year before I could carry multiple bags of soil (80 lbs?) at one time and toss them over my head onto the porch, this year I struggled to carry one. I don't remember ever having this little strength as an adult. It put a few things into perspective.

    Ladylydia's 90 day challenge- Part II

    If you couldn't guess from my title, I'm doing a continuation of my previous challenge. In the interest of habit building& consistency, here are my goals: Tier I: Workouts Goal 1: Cardio Stamina. To rebuild my heart health: 20+ min walk 5x a week, (4 min. tabata if the weather doesn't cooperate.) Goal 2. Upper Body Strength: Push ups. I've gotten weak :Progressive push ups: starting with 11 on day one, adding one rep a day ending with 100 on day 90. These might be a bit rough for a bit, so I will accept a combination of knee push ups, negatives, inclines, and standards. On the day of this posting I was on day 28 (38 push ups). . Goal 3: Core Strength: Planks. Pretty similar to the push up goal. Starting with 21 seconds, add 1 second to a plank hold a day, for 90 days. Tier II: Diet Goal 1: Water. I'm am chronically dehydrated so the goal is 5 glasses of water a day. Goal 2: Calories. Not to get too obsessed with calorie counting but I think the aim of 2000-2300 daily will be reasonable, Goal 3. No Snacking: I take in most of my calories from night snacking. So it needs to stop or at least be minimized. 1 or less snacks a day.
