You can believe I was not about to repeat Day 20! Even though yesterday was a really hard day – hard for motivation, hard for parenting, hard for just about every reason.. and even though it got really late before I got the kids in bed and I was exhausted.. I was NOT going to miss another day of working out!

As I said, I was just spent and really tired, and it was very late so I of course, did my mini strength training workout. I like doing those. Not just because they are brief but because I feel like that workout spends more time on building muscle strength than the workout video does. And the workout video spends more TIME and works on endurance and burning calories. I think switching between the two is good for my body.

So here’s the rundown for Day 21:

Activity: Strength training
Activity Length: 10 minutes
Difficulty: Harder than previous. I switched to 2lb weights with the workout video several days prior but this was the first time I was doing my mini strength training with them. I life more repetitions in a row than I do during the workout video because she has you switch back and forth between different moves. So I may overall do the same number of squat and presses.. but not all in one stint like when I do this. That’s why it pushes my muscles harder, and I like that. I know it doesn’t burn tons of calories, but man I like feeling like I’m growing stronger! (I played around with a 5lb weight at walmart today. Just lifted it up and down a few times. Yeah – not ready for that yet. But I’ll get there soon!)
Tomorrow: Should do the 30 Day Shred again.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
