2012 Bikini Challenge - Check In!



Happy Friday!!!  So, I know that I told y'all I would be sharing my last weekends shenanigans today but, I fibbed.  Instead, I'm linking up with some fellow bloggers & Tone It Up ladies for a weekly "check up" of sorts of our workouts & how the challenge is going.

I missed last weeks link-up due to boozing it up by 2 pm so, I'll be re-capping the last 3 weeks!!!

My Beautiful, Crazy Life

WEEK 1

I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed the Under the Sea workout!

It's all new toning moves & nothing that too difficult... except for the Seahorse!  I probably looked a little ridiculous in gym trying to keep my balance & NOT face plant on the way down.
I kept up with my cardio every day, even if they didn't have it in the challenge.  I think cardio is so important & I actually enjoy doing it.  
The Bikini Strap workout is an oldie but, a goodie!  I loved it!
Overall, week 1 was a great start & I was very excited about what else was to come!

WEEK 2

HOW in the world did they know what my mornings were like when they posted this!?!?
I didn't get up for a Booty Call once that week - I'm not a morning person & waking up at 5 am just hasn't happened.
I did love the Beach Ball workout on Tuesday.  I don't have a medicine ball so I improvised with a 5lb weight.
I can say that I have been VERY good about drinking A LOT of H2O throughout the challenge & even before.  Everyday I drink at least 2 large glasses of water while at work and then 2-3 bottles of water in the evenings while at home.  Yes, I pee all of the time but, I can feel the difference in my body & when I don't have enough water, my body screams for it!
This week I did my best to workout everyday because I knew that we would be out of town for 3 days & not feel like doing anything on Sunday when we got back home.

WEEK 3

Well, there's not much to say here.  I've been eating decently everyday since we've been home but, it's been difficult bouncing back.  However, I did manage to make it to the gym yesterday & got a good cardio session in - it felt GREAT!  I'm headed to the gym today to get in an extra long cardio session & a couple of the toning workouts that I missed this week!  I'll also be stopping by the gym on Saturday & Sunday of this weekend.  I can't fall behind again like I did this last week.  I know what I want & what I need to do to get there so, it's GO TIME!

If you made it through this, congrats!  I know it was lengthy but, it's important for me to check in & see how I've been doing!  I think knowing I'm "checking in" each Friday will make me more accountable - don't want to be a complete failure & have to tell y'all about it!!!

Have you been doing the Tone It Up 2012 Bikini Challenge?
If so, tell us about it & link up!
Even if you haven't been doing the Bikini Challenge but, have been working out & making a better YOU, tell us!
We're all here for encouragement & to help each other stay accountable!

Happy Friday!  I hope y'all have a great weekend!!!

XOXO,
