Toot Your Horn Tuesday

Does this look familiar to you?

It looks very familiar to me. It has kind of become my new best friend. I’ve got some horn tooting to do, girlfriends. So, listen up because I’m proud of myself this week.

Last month, I did the Fab Ab February ab workout. Bari had posted it and I said “why not”. I never missed a day and that made me proud. I was amazed that I could keep progressing to the point that on the last day of the challenge, I could do 100 sit ups, 25 push ups and a 2 minute plank. I was so happy with myself, I was all set to start the whole thing over for March and just add two more days to it.

Enter Melissa and the Six Pack March workout. I jumped at the chance to start this challenge. Today is day “lucky 13” and I still haven’t missed a day. I do it the very first thing when I wake up in the morning after I hit the bathroom. If I do it then, I don’t have an excuses not to do it later. I just finished 45 sit ups, 17 push ups and a one minute and ten second plank.

The thing that just blows my mind is that I have worked out for 42 days in a row. Granted I’m not doing an hour long cardio workout every day, but damn, 42 days is a long time. I’m still working out three nights a week too. So yeah, I feel like I have some serious horn tooting to do. Yay me!!!

Now it’s your turn. How about you? I bet there are plenty of you out there that have something great to tell us about. Tell us all about your awesomeness in the comments or leave us a link to your blog post. We can’t wait to hear your accomplishments.

    i ran 22 miles – in the National Park!  my 2nd longest run ever, and quite possibly more difficult than my marathon given elevation changes (vs the very flat disney course)

    I have some tooting to do!  I started Tae Kwon Do with my son this week.  We’ve been twice so far, an hour each time.  What a great workout!!  The 20 minute warm up might just kill me.  Running drills in a gym with a bunch of kids/teens is way harder then I thought.  And all the kicking and punching is stretching muscles I didn’t know I had.  In fact I’m having trouble sitting and standing today because my hip is so sore (doesn’t that make me feel old).  We are both enjoying it, it’s great Mom/Son time and we hope to keep it up after our 20 session trial.

    You are all sorts of awesome!!!! I’m so proud of you for sticking with this – for realz.

    I ate better this week (meal planned) and ran 8 miles on Saturday.  I’m hoping my poor legs cooperate for 4 miles today since it’s beautiful outside.

    I did a Shamrock 5k on Sunday in beautiful downtown Baltimore and a) shaved 2 min 7 seconds off my time from this same race last year and b) did my best time yet of any of the 5ks I have ever done!! I guess that is what you all mean by a PR?! All of this is really fueling me to keep up w/ my running club and the training plan they’ve put me on for my April 21st, 10k!  BTW, I printed out the SixPack March sheet and it has been in my purse for a week. Time to get that sucker out and get busy DOING IT!! lol I totally forgot all about it!
