It’s Really Going to Happen!!!

Today for my 43 I went with another move from Nellie @ Brooklyn Active Mama.  Her Wednesday workouts always are a great source of inspiration for me and yesterday’s move was a good one – Side-to-Side Plies.  I changed it up a little – I added a weight (20 pound kettle bell) and I lifted my knees out to the  side instead of across my body.

This was a good move – fairly short even for 43 and very effective!  BTW – I counted a right knee and a left knee as 1 rep.

Today was Garage Boot Camp – I thought it would be cooler since it had been raining but I was WRONG!!!  It was muggy!  Oh well, we still had fun.  We did the Tone & Hold workout.  I like this one because once you finish working a particular muscle group (to exhaustion!) you are done with it and don’t repeat any of the same moves!!!

Yesterday morning when I drove Hunter to school we were talking about my Daily 43s and the fact that I have almost achieved my goal of completing a 43 every day for a year and blogging every day!

Hunter said, “You haven’t made it yet.  A lot could happen and you might not get the next 4 days.”

What?!   Has he not met me?!

I’m not sure what he thinks is going to keep me from succeeding – I told him that I did a 43 the day after I had surgery, on all the holidays, on vacation, when I had to take rush trips to TX for illness or death – nothing has kept me from getting in a 43 yet so why would he think that the next few days would be any different?!  Silly!!

He seemed to think that Friday might trick me up!!!  I guess I will just have to show him that even Friday the 13th isn’t going to stop me!!!Screen shot 2013-09-12 at 5.49.32 AM

I’m actually down to just 3 more days – Friday, Saturday and Sunday – and I will have 365 days of 43s!!!!

I have enjoyed the challenge of a daily activity so much that I’m planning another year of it.  Monday I will start my daily 44s!!!!  (starting with 44 miles)  

So, even if Hunter has some doubts, I know that I’m going to make my goal and start off strong for the next year!!!

What is your current goal? 

Happy Thursday!!
