99 Problems….

But working out isn’t one.  Did I mention how awesome it is to be back in my workout groove?!  I’m back in it, with my first interval workout tonight since the infamous back injury.  I’m semi-participating in the 30-day challenge at BR, and I say “semi” only because I’m not really sure my back is ready for burpees quite yet.  Oh but it will be soon!  So I’ve been modifying some of the moves and rearranging some of the ab workouts (or cutting them) just to save me some pain.  Anyway, I completed Day 2 today (since it seemed manageable with no burpees!) and a leg workout because a girl has to workout her milkshake!  I rounded it up with a little bit of yoga to stretch all the important muscles, including my back…


Why yes we can Ryan….yes, we can….

So first off we have Day 2 of the 30 day challenge at BR: Sexy Steamy Fitness Workout.

Here’s how that panned out for me (all with an 8lbs Ugi ball)

1. 4x side abs & 4 Side out jump – 5, 5, 5 (sets)

2. Push-up Roll & Plank Knee  to Elbow Abs – 13, 15, 13

3. 4 Tuck Abs, 4 Ski Abs, 4 In & Outs & 8 Mountain Climbs – 3, 3, 2 (started to run out of gas!)

4. Straigh Arm Lift & Criss Cross Jumping Jacks – 27, 27, 26

 I skipped the abs today, because I did the Presidential debate abs game last night and they are talking to me today.  Hooray for becoming a more involved citizen and working on your body at the same time.  Anyway, here is the leg workout that I did after all that.  Tomorrow = DOMS!

No-shake Milkshake WO:  1 minute per exercise x 3 sets

1.  Clock lunges (as demonstrated here)

2.  Alternating lunges

3.  Plie Squats

4.  Pulse lunges

5.  Bridges with stability ball

You could use weights, but I decided not to and it still kicked my tail.  Enjoy your workouts and let me know if you give this one a shot!  I’m always open to feedback!


About OneVeganFoodie

Let's see. I am a certified personal trainer (CPT), group exercise instructor, nutritional counselor, and wellness counselor. My training background focuses mainly on getting overweight populations into shape, but I have worked with people wanting to gain strength/healthy weight and agility. I worked with the Army and the Marines for several years before settling into a civilian lifestyle. I'm still adjusting and I really miss it. I also enjoy coaching non-runners through their first running event. I post my workouts on here but remember that you need to seek medical advice prior to starting a new exercise regimine. I also love food. I've been vegetarian for 10 years and 4 of the last years I have been completely vegan. I love food and I love to cook. I follow a strict diet that I do not recommend for everyone, but I really enjoy as it keeps me healthy and helps me to know what is going into my body.
