Only one more week to go and I will have completed the Bodyboss program!!!
I feel like the end is in sight, it’s been so hard but I know I can make this last step – I don’t have a flat stomach, I can’t do push-ups but my goodness I feel better!
We’re going back to the U.K. for a week next week, which is perfect timing as I’ll be able to do Friday’s final power up before heading to the airport and writing this blog on the plane 😊
I will be having a week off the exercises while we’re there – I would start something new but it’s going to be such a busy week as we’ll be visiting family and friends not to mention working – so it will be back to a regime when we get back as I don’t want all this hard work to vanish – it’s taken too much effort.
I am so looking forward to seeing everyone, especially my little ones, I know they’re coming out here in the summer but I do miss them so much. I’m also really looking forward to seeing my best friends, my aunt and my very special Dad – there’s not going to be a moment spare!!
Even less as it turns out there is a festival in town on the Saturday (there’s always a festival in Ulverston – google it, it’s an amazing town!) this week it’s the Retro Rendezvous festival and so my Dad will be out performing the Flea Circus (an amazing street theatre act from the amazing town!) and Daisy – yes that’s me – will be making a guest appearance! How well this will go bearing in mind I will have been up for about 30 hours by then, is anyone’s guess… I just hope Dad has some coffee on the go!
Feel free to check the Flea Circus out on Facebook – the new website is currently under construction – Uncle Tim’s Flea Circus
But I am back to my procrastination! On with the Bodyboss!!
Monday – Legs and Booty
My goodness I am tired today… this was a real struggle… lots and lots of jumping, I’m officially rubbish at jumping! I used to think Frog Jumps were my worst, but today it was definitely the Squat Cross Jumps, simply zero energy. But, I carry on…
And Single Leg Glute Bridges?! I mean really that’s just mean! I’m supposed to do 50 three times… I do 30 of the proper ones and 20 straight glute bridges…
Thank goodness for the cool down and an opportunity to jump into the pool for a few lengths to cool off, we are so fortunate to be living here, ok it’s only temporary but it feels like we’re on holiday every day!
As tomorrow is the 4th of July it’s a day off work, which means a well needed lie in!!!
Tuesday – happy Independence Day to all Americans!!
Tuesday is normally yoga day but as I have a day off we decided instead to take little Nya and go for a walk to Bluff Point – such a lovely place, Nya was a little tired after the first mile and so we had to stop every hundred yards for her to have a sit down! We keep forgetting she’s only six months old!
Wednesday – Arms, Abs and Core…
It’s the last push so I knew this was going to be tough but good grief!!!
Aeroplane Push Ups, or just Aeroplanes as I like to do them – even without the push up bit they’re still rock hard!! One exercise in and I’m already my delightful shade of puce…
Jack Knives – yep these still elude me so I modify to ‘v’ sit-ups and hope they’ll do!
Power Plank, Spider Plank (minus the push-up element – well, I do a bit of a dip down but to be honest not on all of them) and Down Dog V Press not pleasant but done – not only am I a delicate shade of puce but I am literally dripping – nice!
Side Plank Lifts – I really feel I should be able to do these, they don’t look as if they should be that difficult but my goodness they are I still only manage 20 out of the 40,
We won’t mention the minute skipping, a five year old would’ve been ashamed of my attempt…
Thursday – Cardio Day!
I’m really looking forward to today, I’m starting a new audio book – Neil Gaiman’s American Gods (it seemed appropriate given that it was Independence Day this week!) I love Neil’s books, there aren’t many authors who can write across the genres with the success he has, and we’re going to see him talk next week, I’m more than a little excited!!
If you’ve never read any of his books I would totally recommend ‘Neverwhere’ or his collaboration novel with Terry Prattchet ‘Good Omens’, and then go from there…
40 minutes flew by and I can’t wait for next weeks session!
Friday – Power Up!!
Oh great lots of jumping and jack knives – or rather ‘v’ sit-ups!
Well now I am completely shattered!!! But week 11 is done, tick, completed, only one more week to go!
I’m doing pretty good on the headstand too… 😊
Now for a weekend of jobs to get ready for next week, including a trip to New York to get presents for my beautiful Goddaughter and her lovely sister, happy days!
