April 1st – My April Pledge Has Begun

Well it’s begun. Just as promised last night, I have begun my April Pledge with a semi-smooth start.

My schedule overcommitted me from the get-go as I could not do my chest exercises last night. Reason being very fair: IT TOOK TWO HOURS TO BUILD EVERYTHING and by the time I was done my back felt like it was about to split in two. I decided instead to rest early and get my morning workout in.

Which I did 🙂

Tuesday’s are CORE days. So I started this morning with 30 minutes of upper and lower abs. I did drop sets of
10 weighted situps,10 free sit ups
10 leg raises,
then
9 weighted situps,
9 free sit ups
10 leg raises,

Etc until it was 1 weighted situp, 1 free sit up and 10 leg raises. This was done without rest and I did it at the start and end of my workout. In the middle I performed 1-min planks couple with 15x leg raises as a repeating set with 30 seconds break.

Tonight is this above again combined with some plyometric and leg-work.

On an emotional note – I’m really dedicated to getting this done. I looked back on my blog and my body has REALLY gone backwards in the last 2 months… Very sad to see but just a reminder that a body to be proud of is something you have to put in the work for.

On the bright side, I’m just thrilled about my new piece of kit, so thrilled I thought I would share photos.

    Hi 🙂
    I love how committed you are to getting back into this 😀
    I am also envious of your new kit!!
    I have a building to put up in my garden which I am going to make into a gym, but it is still flat packed at the moment 😦

    Keep up the good work 😀
