Day 9! So far so good!

It’s Day 9 of October and I have been following the October workout calendar from Blogilates.com.

It hurts but I love it!

So far, so good! It is definitely hard to finish the whole days worth of workouts. Not only is it physically difficult but it has been difficult keeping my kids off me for that long of a time period. I am still trying to figure that one out. They are usually really good about it. They like to workout with me which I love but then they hit a point where they don’t want to do that anymore and they just want me to play with them. Maybe spending some good quality play time with them afterward on a consistent basis will create more of a routine. Maybe that will get them to be a little more patient?? Time will tell!

Kid challenges aside, I am already feeling a difference in the workout I’m getting. I don’t want to say that I was getting lazy with my workouts because I was still working out. That definitely counts for something and is more than many people do so I’m still taking my win there. I did choose an easier route though. So I was cheating myself. If I’m going to put in the time, I should really commit. Cassey created these great workout calendars for a reason and any time I’ve followed it even a little bit, I’ve seen results. SO rather than participate in a monthly challenge that is put on by someone else, I am challenging myself to complete this October calendar in its entirety. It won’t be easy. I’ve already caught myself trying to psych myself out of it. Self doubt is a sneaky bitch and no matter what I do, she always rears her ugly little head. This is my month. I am going to do this for myself because…why not!? So expect lots of instagrams and occasional posts updating you on this adventure.

Anyone else trying this??
