Tag Archives: Ripped in 30
Hello Everyone!! WHOOO!! Week 2 is finished!! Week two is NO joke!! Jillian really turns up the heat! The mountain climbers and plank-jacks almost did me in y’all! This week there was a lot of focus on biceps, triceps, and back muscles. Of course, she doesn’t neglect the abs, thighs and butt! I really like these workouts because they seem to be very well-rounded and challenge me every week. The exercises are challenging, but not so hard that you want to give up. The endurance gained from week 1 is VERY helpful! Circuit three (the last circuit in each workout) seemed to arrive much faster than it did in week 1. I can definitely see my back, arms, butt, and legs toning up already! My abs still need a lot of work though, hence my operation name, #OperationByeByeBelly LOL! As promised, here are my measurements for week 2.
Arms: 11″ (both) – .5″ since week 1, day 1
Chest: 38″ + 1″ since week 1, day 1
Waist: 32″ No change since week 1, day 1
Hips: 43″ + 1″ since week 1, day 1
Thighs: 23″ (both) – 1″ since week 1, day 1
Alright! So I see some change happening! I’ve got to work a little harder on these abs though! I’ll update on week 3 next Friday!
Hello Everyone! I mentioned before that I was starting the 30-day workout challenge hosted by Kenda of YOU can GET IT fitness blog! For the next 30 days, we’ll be doing the Jillian Michaels Ripped In 30 DVD.
Week one starts today!! I’ll be taking before and after measurements to record my progress. Every week, I’ll post how my workouts and meal plans have gone. I’m so excited! I did the first workout today, and MERCY!! Jillian works muscles that I didn’t even know existed! I won’t lie to you and tell you it was easy, Jillian kicks butt (understatement of the year). I took multiple breaks (SMH), but I’m sure that by the end of the week, my endurance and strength will have improved, and I’ll be ready for week two! It’s not too late to join the challenge! In fact, Kenda has a DVD she’s giving away free! The group of people who have joined the challenge are encouraged to check in by commenting on Kendas blog, or on FB. If you’ve been meaning to start a workout, but haven’t gotten around to it, join the challenge! It’s easier to be consistent when others are in the struggle with you! Start with us today!!
Bust: 37.5 ”
Upper arm: 11.5″
Hey everyone! This post isn’t directly about hair. This time, it’s about exercise! Being physically active is mostly good for your body, but can be beneficial for hair too! Getting more exercise gets blood pumping through the body, taking oxygen and nutrients to all the cells. Including the cells in your scalp! This would be like using scalp massage to bring blood to the hair follicles. The more fresh blood you get pumping through your body, the more nutrients and oxygen your follicles will get! Producing healthy hair that grows! There’s no excuse not to do it, so get to it!! *I’m speaking to myself too!*
My friend Kenda at YOU can GET IT fitness blog is starting a 30-day fitness challenge that begins Sunday, October 16th! We will be doing the Jillian Michaels Ripped In 30 DVD. I tried it today just to see what was up, and O_O… It’s rough, to say the least. But with consistency, I know I can get through it! If you would like to join the challenge, check out Kenda’s blog!
What about you all? Have you found exercise helpful to your hair health?
