January 1st - Planks
Well seeing as how it's January 1st of a new year and I'm actually thinking about it, I am going to attempt to do the entire 366 pictures of the day.
When possible, I'll write a (related) story to go with it. However sometimes I expect it will be enough just to get a picture posted.
Today's picture is me doing planks.
One of the Facebook groups that I'm in started a January challenge to do 10 burpees and 10 sit-ups every day for the rest of the month. I chose to substitute three sets of 60 second planks for the sit-ups. I also did the burpees this morning, and even had my daughter Joey join in. It was fun.
I'm not one to do fitness type New Year's resolutions. But I did make some pretty good healthy lifestyle habit adjustments last year (although I didn't start until the end of January). I lost a little over 50 lb mainly through improved eating habits (I expect all right more about this in the coming year). But I did also go to the gym twice a week. This year, since I'm already in reasonably good shape, my goal is to try to get in very good shape before the summer. To do this I'm going to ramp up my exercise routine probably to 4 days per week of pretty intense strength training workouts.
Well that's about all I have for now. Did you make any resolutions for 2020?
See you again tomorrow 🙂
