Monday Motivation ... Keep being consistent!

How did you week go last week with the April challenge?  How are the push ups and plank?  It's not too late to start you know! 

This week it's time to up it a little bit.  Not a lot, just a little bit so that you are gradually building up your strength.

Here is this week's plan ...

Push ups     20
Skipping    100
Plank          45 seconds

Just so that you don't think you are going to get away with it being easy either ... If you find that doing 20 push ups on your knees is easy but just can't quite master them on your toes ... change the intensity when doing them on your knees. 

Here are some options ...
* Slow them down.  Count to 3 as you lower to the ground, count to 3 as you push up again.  Slower uses your muscles for longer ... it burns, oh yeah!
* Go low.  Provided that you are maintaining your form, go as low down to the ground as you can.  OK, so if you've got big boobies then you have an advantage, but get down low!

And, those of you who are pushing out 20 on your toes with no problems, up the intensity of yours too.  Same as above! 

Now all of this effort we are making in April is not going to be for nothing ... we are making changes, to both our mind and body!


Get out there and make the change!  And don't forget to let me know on FaceBook or instagram with an #activeapril hashtag!  I want to see pics!

Now that we have found out why I am so tired and why my weight is climbing out of control, I can make the changes that I need to and hopefully it won't be too long before I am moving again - can't wait !!!!!
Thanks so much for this - just what I need to get started again in a few days/weeks time.
Have a great day !

I've had a really low key April so far, but hoping to pick the ball up when kids go back to school!

Consistency is my issue. I eat well and exercise for a few weeks, then I indulge a little too much (or don't exercise enough) and put it all back on. It never ends!
