For the first time I was able to do dips with my own body weight! Dips have always been the one thing in the gym I fear and avoid. Today I had a birthday workout with my bday boyfriend. He loves dips… I had to face my fear for dips and I managed to do 2 sets of body weighted dips. Fair enough, only 6 the first time and 5 the second, but I did it!! And I will do more!
15min intervals – 2min at 10kmph with 1 min between 16.5-17.5 kmph 5 times
2 sets of pull ups with body weight (11, 8)
2 sets of body weight dips (6, 5)
2 sets of leg raises from a pull up bar (14, 12)
I ❤ training. Some fitsporation for my quest to manage to do at least 3 sets of 10 body weight dips to trim my triceps:

Sometimes the gym is just not appealing. I had a dreadful day at work and didn’t have time for breakfast or lunch. With just a few quick snacks in me, stresses to the bone and shaky – I was just not in the right place for a gym workout. I needed a chat and cudles and comfort from the Mr. Then a big plate of food packed with omega oils, vitamins and minerals to give me a boost. I then decided to hit the floor for some good old fashioned workout. 82 press ups and a 15 minute core workout later I am now happily stretching on through floor. Together with a good hour or so of walking today, I think I’ve done alright. Don’t let yourself be defeated, a quick one on the floor can help your mood and confidence.
This week’s challenge is to do at least 15 minutes of exercise a day. It will help you get started for the fittest year ever! Snart now!
Now I’m hoping for a better rest of the week. I’m excited about my first poimle session of 2013 with my office girlies tomorrow 🙂

How many people do you hear say that? how many people give it up after a week or maybe a few months? In order to reach your goals you need to be focused, determined and motivated.
My most important resolution is to make every workout count. To give everything every single minute/second. I’m on it. Who else is? let’s make 2013 the fitest year ever!
