Day 201 (day 5 / week 29)

Today I got off to an early start, and then the procrastination bug hit me.

I got out at about 6:30 this morning and walked for a while (45 mins including my cool down) and then later on did my quickfire challenges:

Side Lunge with Windmill Arms--100 in sets of 25
Seated Leg Extensions--100 in sets of 20
and I added in some...
Squats--100 in sets of 25

Doing these 3 things took me about 25 minutes with a little bit of rest in between them.

Well if you haven't noticed I changed my blog layout. I want my blog to reflect who I am a little more, and 1/2 way into my challenge, I feel pretty again. This is not what my goal is about, but it is a result of it. I haven't been able to say that for a LONG time. My mother in law bought me this shirt yesterday and it's just so beautiful! I didn't have to buy it in the plus size clothing section either, which made it even better. Yaay!

(I took the picture to ask my hubby which shirt he liked better--this is the one he chose)

Not to contradict anything I just said, but I don't think this layout reflects what my blog is about (exercise/healthy lifestyle goal) so I am going to search out for something a little more fitting. For now I will leave it like this, because it's how I feel :). It's so pretty :).

Hope you guys have a great week! New week, new day, make it count! You can do this!

I can do this. I am a star.

Chris and Annalisa said...

Oh, that shirt is gorgeous on you! Love the color!

isn't it funny how much our blog layout can effect how we feel? HA, the little things huh? Well, I like this one but am excited to see what you find that makes you feel great about your blog!

Thank you Miriam, Annalisa and Jen :). I love the color of the shirt too! I feel so purrdy (minus the pink pants lolol).

I am excited to see what I can find too! I am hoping to find something earthy, clean and reflecting balance in some way and showing a cycle or metamorphosis or something (cause that's what I am going through). I am probably going to have to make it, to get exactly what I want--so I'm not looking forward to that. You do what you gotta do! lol!
