The month of July is already gone, and it’s been about a month since I have last posted on here. This was definitely a challenging month for me, but definitely a lot of good things to share! Be on the watch for it!
Before all that, however, I should let you know how the Burpees on the Hour challenge went, as promised.
It was pretty awesome, but I did have my problems with it. Oh, well! That’s what made it a challenge!
Reasons why it was awesome:
- I was way more prepared to do burpees the next time at the box. Little did they know…
- I was inspired to look up how-to videos on the web-leading me to discover that the push-up is not required for the traditional burpee! Whaaaat!?
- It really wasn’t so bad. And I am referring to both the workout and the challenge. Once I watched a few videos, I started focusing more on my jump and less on the push-up. Actually, I stopped incorporating the push-up completely, and just made sure my chest always touched the ground. Easy, yet still an effective workout. Also, I didn’t really think of how rarely I’d be chilling at home. I kept myself busy this month, which equated to only a few days with burpees out of the month.
Reasons why it wasn’t so awesome:
- Well, there was only one: monotony. While doing burpees got less challenging, they also got boring. It basically got to the point that I wanted to break my challenge, because I would feel like changing up the movement. I never actually broke it, but for next time, I am going to keep in mind to do like the blogger and her kids who switched up the exercises.
And there you have it! 🙂
Now it’s time for a new challenge. With some other projects in the way, and with the countdown to the semester already started, I totally wasn’t thinking of it. I’m going to need to come up with something soon!
How are your challenges going?
