Every Day in JULY: Half Way - Finish Strong! Newcomers welcome - as always. :D



THEME: We're half-way through - finish STRONG!

Welcome to the Every Day Checkin!
We are a small group who aim to do some form of physical activity every day, whatever that means for YOU (but don't kid yourself about it either)


No matter how you've gone for the first half of the year - make yourself proud of how you finish!


NEWCOMERS, RETURNERS, LURKERS,... might as well say:
EVERYONE
is WELCOME!



Daily posts - not mandatory, nor even "sternly preferred" - but we love it if you do.
Weekly posts, drive-by notes, daily essays all about you.... any of those are perfectly fine - no pressure, EXCEPT to diligently try to add serious movement to your day - every day.

Lexicon:
WERD = Well Earned Rest Day, but even rest days can include movement
TERD = Totally Expected Rest Day, though not especially well-earned, like a planned happy event
TURD = Totally Unexpected Rest Day, hopefully also a happy event
HERD = of TURDS - usually declared after the THIRD TURD in a row. Try to avoid these at all costs, as they can move in & get comfortable, getting OUT of your comfort zone is the way to make change happen

Thursday, the 1st of July
36min, CIA 9004 - Step 2 + Abs Mix, with Alice
36min, YouTube - Naomi Joy - Low Impact HIIT Rebounder, with buddy
back-to-back

I definitely don't have the technique solid yet for the rebounder. Need to lift knees quickly to be able to switch feet (cross country) in time to the beat. If I wait until I bounce high enough, it's too slow. Need to practice my mogul-knees more. Feel like I'm in beginner-land on it still. And it's HARD WORK!

Thank you for another brilliant start to the month, Helen! We are halfway there!

7/1 - Cathe's MIS, the first half. I realized that I don't have to do the whole thing in one day, duh! It is quite repetitious, as Cathe can be, but very straightforward. And since I've been doing my own personal push-up challange, I was able to do the first set of 16 push-ups on my toes! The second set, I only made 4, but I'm definitely proud of that.
Hope to do some cardio later. Will edit if I do.

Pride is DEFINITELY in order!!

It's NOT raining at last. DH has taken Alice out for a walk, but I'll take her for a run later. May be making a blouse for Bridget today, start it at least. She was wearing one I made years ago (in the 80s!!) and love it - the fabric, cut, fit... and I knew which pattern it was straight away. She's found some fabric, that I KNEW she'd like, and there's enough of it to do the job.

So my agenda today is:
layout that shirt for Bridget, pin/cut/start making
run with Alice
Cathe Chrono - 61min, Cross Train Express - Power Circuit, matched weight easily but planks were tough
MUST DO YOGA!! Yoga: 25min, Adriene - True - Day 01 Motive
back to pushups - thanks for the nudge Lili
some weeding?
maybe a Jillian Michaels Body Revolution workout - they're short.

yeah - overly optimistic, as always... but if I don't aim high, I stay low.

Helen - As much as I enjoy sewing, the laying out, pinning and cutting are always a chore for me. How nice that you had the fabric and are ready to go!

7/2 - dog walk, we are back to regular dog walks again, Baxter is healing nicely and pretty much back to regular energy level.
You Can Run Week 8, Day 1 - after a long warm-up, we had to run for 20 minutes, no jogging, with a few small inclines thrown in. I managed it all, but I did reduce my speed by .2 in order to do it. I'm fine with that!
10 Minute Post-Run Stretch w/ Selena.
