Day 3: Computer Butt Challenge

Welcome to Day 3 of the Challenge. I'm so proud of us!

Here's a workout from Scott that will gets you outside in the fresh air and burning calories. If you set a timer for an hour, worked hard at your computer, and then went outside for 5 minutes – did a few of the exercises in the video and repeated that cycle a few times, you'll be burning a bunch of calories – and getting a little fresh air and sunshine, too! Even if you don't have a hill by your house, you can still do this on flat ground.

As for me, I'm really enjoying Angie's Sizzlin' Circuits workout. My favorite part is that I don't have to think about what to do. I do enough thinking in a day. 🙂 I just get to follow along. It's like having Angie in the room, chillin' and working out with me.  For instance, I really like the standing side leg lifts and lunges. They're easy on the brain, but hard on the legs!

It's only $10.

Note: Scott has a few other programs if you prefer to choose one of them.

Fat Loss Quickie 10 Minute Home Office Workouts (Excellent!)
Rock that Body (For a more advanced workout.)

Please post your update today so I don't have to hunt you down. 🙂

((hugs)) to all and thank you!

Warmly,

PS. Tomorrow, I will have some hula hoop tips from our friend, Angela Wills, to help you incorporate hula hooping into your workout. Watch for that.

If you missed the first few days, no worries, jump in at any time!

I adore comments! Please share your thoughts.

    We had to go out of town today so I only drank half a gallon of water, no working out, but we did manage to eat low carb. 🙂

    Went out early in the morning and did a 20 minute *brisk* walk – no leisurely strolling today.

    I did my 45 minutes at the gym last night. Right now I do 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on the treadmill and another 15 on the bike. I plan to add another 15 minutes doing some weight training. And then I’ve also been thinking about taking a Zumba class a couple of days a week too.

    And my healthy eating is still going great. Other than my morning coffee, I’ve been drinking nothing but water for the past 2 weeks now. I’ve found that it’s hard when we go out to eat, but I’m sticking to it and having water to drink, avoiding breads, and choosing healthy meals.

    I’m pretty darn proud of myself for not giving in to temptation, but I figure if I’m going to work my butt off working out, there’s no way I’m going to let that go to waste by indulging in junk 😀

      Right on Melissa! Mixing up your cardio like that is fantastic and makes the time go by faster for sure.

      Definitely add weight training to the mix. You’ll experience even greater benefits than the cardio.

      And Zumba… oh ya baby! Go shake your groove thing. It’s a totally blast!

      Congrats on doing well with your nutrition. It’s such a huge key to not only the success of your body transformation, but for your overall energy and health.

      Remember, what you eat becomes a part of the cells of your body. You really are what you eat.

      You should definitely feel proud of yourself and it’s so great to see you celebrating all of your victories.

      Keep it up Super Star!
