My Fitness Revolution Day 358: Something New And Something Not So New

I was scrolling (not trolling) through Tumblr recently and discovered Fitocracy.  It’s a free social network game for people who are into fitness.  I already log my work outs on a website called Dailymile but downloaded Fitocracy, just to give it a go.  It’s a slick app but a lot of my exercises don’t appear on their list.  Mind you, it’s a very extensive list and they’re still adding to it.  There’s nothing wrong with it, but I don’t need an iPhone app for motivation.  You’re reading this story because I was playing around with the app this morning and accidentally logged a workout that I hadn’t actually done.  I tried to delete it but that doesn’t appear to have happened, so instead of being a liar, I did the workout.  That’s how I ended up starting today’s activity with the Fitsugar Bikini Abs with Teddy Bass Workout.  It wasn’t easier than the last time, but I knew what to expect and kept up with the instructions.  Quite frankly, I was happy to do it because a little extra abs exercise never hurt…me.  (Ha!)

The planned workout was another Fitsugar video but one that I’d never done before: Custom Flow Yoga Series for Burning Calories with Ursula Vari.  This is the second time I’ve tried a proper yoga workout and really enjoyed it.  I’ll probably need a few more tries to get all the movements down perfectly.  The poses weren’t very hard to do but by the end, I needed to cool down a bit before hitting the shower.  That brings this week’s activities to a close and it was a very good week.  I’m looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing tomorrow.  Oh, and Day 365 is now one week away.  This means that there will be new things in store for us.  Not only will there be new challenges and features; but hopefully adventures for you to read about.  No retreat, no surrender and no excuses!
