My first Weekend Warrior Challenge!

28 04 2010

This is a short post cause I seriously need to catch up on the blogs out there…so many bloggers so little time!

My virtual blogging buddy (hence forth known as VBB), Brandon (So Long, Fat Ass)  is doing another installment of Weekend Warrior Challenge. I’ve watched quite a few of these events come and go and have decided this is my weekend to get my feet wet (pun intended…keep reading).

The idea behind WWC is to make some clear and definite goals that will be attempted during the upcoming weekend.  I’ve decided to go with three:

  • Drink a gallon of Water Saturday and Sunday. I do really well during the week but I often fail miserably during the weekend.
  • 70 sit-ups on the bosu ball at gym at one time. I can do 50 but can I do 70 in one sitting? BUAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!
  • Swim 90 laps. I’ve been really wanting to push myself past the 1 mile mark for swimming and this is a great opportunity!

The theme for this weekend’s WWC is Braveheart. I’d probably get arrested if I tried to get into the gym with my face painted blue so in true warrior fashion I’m going to paint my toenails blue!!!

What’s you Weekend Warrior Challenge?

Hell yeah! I should paint my nails blue too. Wait, I don’t have blue nail polish. Time to get some. Damn. Wohoo, time to be weekend warriors together. You will totally get to 90 laps. Push it.

And mannnn, good luck with the bosu balls crunches. I can only imagine how difficult it is. I’ll try it myself. Do you leave the flat part of the ball on the ground and like…put your middle back on the ball round part and just curl up? INTENSE. A good intense though.

Keep it up with your dedication, Super Woman!

WWOPD.

Yep but I think it’s actually easier than a regular sit up…

Or maybe not and Superman lied to me????

Hmmmmm, I’ll have to investigate.

Blue toenails? We’re twins!

And third base? In my lucky robe? Oh, hell no… I’m heading for home…

For home, you’ll need to at least buy me dinner.

I’m cheap, but not that cheap!

Im tryin to drink more water too. I actually LOVE water, but for some reason I end up not drinking a lot of it throughout the day. I heard that if you put some lemon juice in it you can burn up to 80 more calories. I am going to try and do 70 sit ups on the BOSU ball as well-we will see how that goes.
