      ♡ Punches and Squats Challenge Day 15
      ♡ Vitality Program Day 15 (5 sets)
      ♡ Blogilates 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge Day 15 (10 roll ups, 10 ankle reaches, 10 leg lifts, 10 reverse crunches, and 7 criss-crosses)
      ♡ 4,188 steps
      ♡ 59 total active minutes

      I did another breathing exercise before I got out of bed this morning, this time for 3 minutes.

      I had plans to do the Daily 10 on Love Sweat Fitness and the Toning Moves from Tone It Up again today, but it was kind of a busy day today. By the time I was able to work out, my knees were killing me from standing too long. . I made the decision to take it easy and just do my challenges and programs. Not what I wanted out of today, but something is better than nothing.

        ♡ Punches and Squats Challenge Day 16
        ♡ Vitality Program Day 16 (7 sets)
        ♡ 12 minute belly dance practice
        ♡ belly roll practice
        ♡ Blogilates 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge Day 16 (10 roll ups, 10 ankle reaches, 10 leg lifts, 10 reverse crunches, and 8 criss-crosses)

        I followed the same belly dance video as before (beginner figure 8s). I think I’m doing a little better on the movements, but speed is not my friend right now. Neither are belly rolls. I don’t understand that sorcery . But I’ll get there eventually (cue the procrastinator “superhero” from The Amanda Show. And also pretend I didn’t reveal my generation).

        Steps and active minutes are still a work in progress!!

          Which belly dancing videos are you following? My wife and I do the occasional Leilah Isaac but generally find it hard to keep up, though fun anyway

            CaptainCanuck I do the Leilah Isaac ones, too. I’m kind of thinking about slowing the speed of the videos until I get the hang of them.

              I like that it is like dynamic stretching mostly and not too intensive. I don't keep up either, but I think the point is just to try in this case

                CaptainCanuck I agree. I like that it’s something different but not too demanding. And I do try, so I’m happy about that. The problem for me is that following along to belly dancing is different than following along to yoga and pilates videos. It’s easier for me to go at a different pace than the instructors on those types of videos, since I don’t necessarily have to watch every single move or pose. But on belly dancing, I have to watch it, and I automatically try to match her because my brain won’t let me go at my own pace if I’m seeing someone else do it. Someday I’ll get it, so I’m not too worried.

                  I am a little late to your party, but....welcome to the Hive!
                  Nice thread you’ve got going here, great progress.
                  Now, belly dancing is not something I’ve thought to try...I’ve gotten my husb into yoga and he loves it. Not sure how the BD would go over

                    DorothyMH Thanks You’ll have to let me know if you decide to try it and how it goes over

                      ♡ Vitality Program Day 17 (3 sets)
                      ♡ Daily 10 on Love Sweat Fitness (10 lateral raises, 10 narrow rows each side, 10 bicep curls each side, repeated three times)
                      ♡ Daily Dare, Back Arch Balance Hold with extra credit
                      ♡ Blogilates 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge Day 17 (10 roll ups, 10 ankle reaches, 10 leg lifts, 10 reverse crunches, and 9 criss-crosses)
                      ♡ Punches and Squats Challenge Day 17

                      The Daily Dare today was really fun. I was super wobbly, but managed to stay upright the full time. I almost fell once when I was holding my right ankle. That side was a lot harder for me.

                      I also tried practicing activating my upper and lower abs at separate times as belly roll practice. I’m starting to actually feel my lower abs a little more than I had been, which was nice. It’s progress.

                      I’m also seeing improvement in my overall core strength (but let’s be honest, the bar was very low). My back hasn’t been hurting when I stand for long periods of time. Little victories

                              LizardFriend95 The journey to every peak starts with a single step. Progress is a step closer to that peak. Slow and steady wins the race!

                                ♡ Blogilates Ultimate Daily Stretching Routine for Flexibility and Relaxation

                                The Sun Salutations are not the ones on this website.

                                Technically, I was supposed to do three sets of the Tone It Up workout, but I didn’t have the energy for it today. It was a little bit more than I was ready for at this moment in time. On the plus side, I was able to hold the side plank a lot better than I normally would. The crunches weren’t that great, but oh well.

                                Though they are supposed to be bedtime stretches, I did not perform them at bedtime. But apparently the few days I spent on the Journey to the Splits Challenge paid off, because I was able to get deeper into some stretches. There were a few that I hardly felt. So now I’m really looking forward to starting the challenge again.
