I think I've told you before that we drink a fair amount of orange juice around here. Hubby also drinks a good bit of grapefruit juice. And our favorite brand of OJ is this . . .
Tropicana Pure Premium. Now, it's not the only brand we buy because I usually shop sales and if another brand, or even store brands are a considerably better deal, I'll go with them. But this, hands down, is our favorite. Recently Tropicana started a new program called "Juicy Rewards" where you go online, set up a very simple account, and each time you buy their juice, you enter the code inside the cap. When you collect enough points you can use those points to do things like visit museums, theme parks, donate your points to save the rainforest, or buy things, all at discounted prices. Oh, and if you buy your OJ at Kroger or affiliated stores, you get double points!
So, after I joined and started saving points, I started looking for things that interested me. The first thing I found was this . . .
And it came yesterday.
And I used it this morning.
And I used the lowest exercise level.
And I thought I was going to die!
They start you out walking for about 30 seconds, and then running for about 10 minutes. Or at least that's what it felt like, but it was actually about a minute and a half. Once again, I thought I was going to die, and was ready to give up already.
But I didn't! I sat down for a few, drank some water, tried to get my breathing under control, and started back again. We did squats, boxing, bicep curls with an elastic band, rowing thingys, also with the elastic band, inline skating, lunges and then ran and walked again. And I made it!!!! The running the 2nd time was even a bit easier the 2nd time!
So for me, today is a new day - the first of my 30 day challenge. And I'm going to really, really try to do this every day! Well, at least every week day, because weekends are very different around here. But 5 days a week is good! Better than no days a week, right??? And we go to Florida for a week of camping in April, so I hope to be in better shape (health wise - even at my best I've never had a bikini body!) so I can walk more and maybe canoe and trikke more.
I'll keep you posted! Blessings, Becky
