Kicking it up a notch!

Posted December 21, 2010

We are kicking it up a notch on 100 Days of Fitness. The reason is simple - I am eating more so I need to exercise more.

I really liked the latest workout prescribed by Coach Tara Wind of Lifetime Fitness in Cary. Nothing boring out this one:

2 minutes running
2 minutes on stair machine
20 squats
20 pushups
2 minutes rowing
20 alternating lunges
20 tricep dips
20 bicep curls & presses (15 lb wts)
Three sets!

My weight is stable. I do want to lose a few more lbs. but I realize it's not going to happen until after the holidays. We're nearing the mid point of the campaign. This is day 44. That's one of my favorite numbers. David Thompson used to wear that number for the Wolfpack.

    Bill, we're pulling for you. Anyone who can keep their weight stable for the next ten days earns praise. Keep up the good work.

    Feel better soon, aloflin! I agree - it's good to be realistic this time of year. No way am I going to knock off a couple of lbs a week.

    Sounds like a great workout! My gym is closed for the week and I am sick, so I am trying to be creative with my lighter workouts. Like you, I am eating more and being realistic about revving up the workouts after the holidays!
