Yay, got the 50 crunches in yesterday! Going to get them done today too. Working from home cause of the snow. There are days when a laptop and Network (and being a desk monkey) pays off. If I were working on the plant floor, I'd have had to face this snow. Hope everyone is safe!

Oh that stinks about the hockey players monopolizing the ice time. I can totally understand. I have found that the tri-town rink sometimes had public skating at 7pm and it's only like $7 for the 1 1/2 hours. I've only made it there once but the kids that were on the ice with me were great. Let me do whatever I wanted while they still had a good time.

Never managed to get all 50 pushups done on any given day this week. I got them up to 30 which really is impressive for me. On to cruches!

Hello!

There's a local outdoor rink thats a basketball court in the summer time. the local FD filled it a few weeks back. i'm irritated that the *hockey players* monopolize the time. they're not even supposed to be on the ice on thursdays. it's free skate, not pick up hockey games.
anyway.. we WERE gonna go again today, but mom had a dr's appointment so we weren't able to go. instead we went and picked up some free tickets for Monster Jam friday night. DH is gonna take DS1. Then we went grocery shopping, gassed up at the Stop & Shop on s.willow ($2.79 with my rewards woot!)then headed back home.

i want to get back out on the ice. Hopefully tomorrow & saturday. :)

Where did you end up going iceskating?

Incline pushups are definitely convenient when you are in tight quarters or without a clean enough floor! I've been doing them in the bathroom at work using the sink as my incline.. LOL

Only a few more push up days left team! We SOOO got this! And then onto the next challenge!

I am so glad to have you all in on this team challenge!

I also do wall pushups and incline pushups on my desk when I am at work.... I agree, touching work's floor is absolutely gross!!! Especially since our cleaning crew here is HORRIBLE!!

How is everyone else doing on their pushups this week? Get as many as you can in, as a new challenge starts Saturday!!

I have to admit that even though I want to do this, I have been slacking. I think about the push-ups at times when I can't do them. I guess I could do wall push-ups while I'm at work. There is also a bench in the bathroom I could use. All I know is that I'm not touching the floor at work. Gross!

Burpees are definitely not the easiest of exercises... but definitely gives amazing results! If you google "how to burpee" there is a video for it. If you try them and have a really hard time with them, do them slow, rather than jumping your feet out & in, "walk" them out & in. The object is to get us moving and doing something different each week so our bodies change!

a burpee is a squat-thrust (brings me back to 1972 high-school gym class...)
