Day 19 on My 30 Day Challenge

I’m on day 19 of my 30 day challenge, I noticed that I got stronger!  I used to do squats with 10 lbs on my barbel and now, I use 35 lbs (including the barbel handle weight)!  I love this challenge, 1 more week and I'm done.  I just hope it makes a big change on my tummy..  I still eat like crap on my rest days, thought I deserved it! :D
I love the way Lisa-Marie encourages and gives support while working out, it's as if she's really talking to me!! 
 3rd week, more muscles in my arms! :P  I used to hate arm muscles, but now I am loving them!!  I don't believe in fad diets in getting rid of flabby arms (unless you're aiming to be skinny anorexic!) , I think with proper diet and exercise you’ll achieve well toned arms .   I'll post some of her arm workout soon..
On the last day of the 3rd week, it was just cardio, cardio, cardio, for 40 minutes!!  I find too boring, plus I don't have a treadmill and I hate using jump ropes (I know, it's crazy and stupid but I hate it when the ropes hit me.. ).  So, I opted to do Insanity Pure Cardio (it's been a while).  I was shocked that it kind of got easier and I got faster!  I always end up dead tired after this workout but this time, I had a good time doing it.  Although, I'm still having a hard time doing push ups but I still try to finish it, and I take really short breaks/breaths when I need to.
If I get a decent result from this challenge, I will post my before and after picture and my size too..  (crossing my fingers!!)'s 30 Day Challenge

Trying this pose.
Crow Pose (Bakasana), this is the beginner's version.  I still need lots of practice and patience.

Volvo Trucks - The Epic Split feat. Van Damme

I am speechless, gave me goose bumps..  Van Damme, 53, performs the splits between two moving trucks.  No tricks, confirms Volvo, the stunt was genuine aside from the digital removal of some safety equipment.

The live test was set up to demonstrate the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering -- a world first technology that makes the new Volvo FM easier to drive.

Filmed in Spain on a closed-off landing field at sunrise in one take.
Directed by Andreas Nilsson
Soundtrack by Enya: Only Time

Crossfit Experience with Women's Health Pop Up Studio

I signed up for a free trial at CFMNL Pasig thru Women's Health Magazine's Pop Up Studio.  It was the last leg of their Pop up Studio.  I know, it's far, I wanted to try this workout for so long so I grabbed the chance.
I already had an idea of what workout they do, kinda' like my routine at home, burpees, lunges, push ups, sit ups and so on.  I do the same thing but this time it was harder, 'cause I tried not to stop (there were lots of people watching, hehehe!) and I wanted to push myself to see how far I can go, didn't want to waste my time there.
I had a great time, learned the proper form of each workout we did with Coach Mike's 30 minutes WoDs (Workout of the Day) includes sit-ups, lunges, squats, push-ups and burpees.  My legs were sore for 3 days, so it was time and energy well spent!  Hubby was there to support!!  Thanks, babe!
 My freebies from Women's Health magazine, Carbtrim and Enervon.  Thank you!!!
