Today I woke up feeling great! I slept straight through the night without having to get up to twinkle so that is a plus of doing a low carb diet. I was a bit bummed out that my 30 day challenge ended yesterday and I did not really want to wait until Friday for the new challenge to begin so I set out to find my own workout challenge.
I am not sure if you read my last post but I have a knee problem so I am trying to avoid the squats for a while and wanted to focus on my arms so I set out to find some exercise to do. A few pinterest searches later and I found a portion of my new Sexy Summer Arms challenge over at Blogging Beauty Secrets

So the workout I did consist of the following:
Bicep curls *

I was so motivated this morning that I even did 10 minutes on my elliptical machine (well it’s my friends but she let me borrow it) I am not going to commit to doing that every morning because well I am just not (mainly because of the hair and sweat).
So that is the gist of my new 30 day challenge. It took me about 15 minutes to do the above exercise. I will also jump along on the challenge that Susan has for us this coming Friday which are just doing sit ups.
I am going to try my best to possibly make a video of me doing this workout so that you get the idea. Keep in mind that there is no wrong or right way to do this I mean as long as you are moving that should be all that really matter. With that being said also not that I am not a doctor of any kind and have had no prior training and I am not certified with accreditation to teach this. I am simply showing you what I am going to be doing for the next 30 days. Do at your own risk.
Here is a link to a full calendar that I created in case you want to jump along.
Here is a small description of the moves.
Tricep kickbacks: stand with your feet hip width apart and knees bent slightly (not allowing your knees to go over your toes) and a flat back, bring your hands into your chest, then press them back to your back.
Shoulder fly: stand with your knees hip width apart, elbows raised to shoulder level, bring arms into the center of your chest, then back out, keeping them even with your shoulders the entire time.
Arm raise: stand with your feet hip width apart, and arms relaxed to the side, in a straight motion bring your arms up to shoulder level and slowly back down, control the movement.
Bicep curl: stand with your feet hip width apart, keeping elbows close to your sides raise your hands up to meet your shoulder, then slowly turn your arm and press out, bringing your arm back to your shoulder and back down.
Wall Push-up: Simply place your hands horizontal about 1 foot apart on a wall and place your feet together about 2 feet away from the wall. Do push yourself into the wall using only your arms.
Punches: Stand with your feet slightly apart and squat down a little bit (as much as you are comfortable going) make 2 fists with your arm and take a boxing stance. Lightly punch your left arm crossing over to the left side and repeat with the left arm gong to the right side. Doing each side counts as 1 punch.
Knee Lifts: Simply stand straight and lift your right knee up as much as you can and place back down. Repeat with the left knee, doing each leg count as 1.
