YOU COMPETE ME 365: Feel the Burn

Virgin365: day three hundred and twenty-three…December Challenge

365 ONE: day 9 and surprisingly I’m fine!

Day 9: January 17th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “I Kissed a Girl” by Katy Perry

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog is what I refer to as = “Ground Move”

Anything to Note =

The sit-ups were really hard today, way harder than the last 9 days. I could feel the aching in my body and stomach so maybe I am just feeling the repetition of these exercises, which I can’t do anything about, or I am just not strong, boo! Hopefully I will get stronger, I imagine I will and that excites me! I do try and change-up the 40 sit-ups so I’m not doing the same exactly every day – this may help to rest some of the muscles ready for the next day, or day after next.

I had a hard time getting the other physical criteria done in the office bathroom. It was like I was cursed today – as soon as I went in, someone would come in. Or as soon as I got on the floor to start the plank I had to jump up as the key in the door would rattle. It was super annoying and so I had to revert to the stairwell again. The cold sterile poop-hole of a stairwell! Where there is no lovely carpet 😦

I had a super busy day today, and will again tomorrow, even more actually tomorrow, but today I had to be at a lot of different places so I decided to walk or speed walk, or as fast as I could with my heeled boots for most of it, all over NYC. I felt it in my legs certainly. It was nice to not to take the subway and I just had enough time in between it all to accomplish that. So, duh, that became the cardio – it’s an obvious choice for me but especially when I am so busy. It’s the best I can do right now – at least its something, right?!!

Note to self or advice to others in regards to dancing – don’t dance in pajamas with no underwear on! Boobs flailing and pajama pants falling is not fun to deal with – I am sure it would be hilarious to watch from the outside, but terrible when you are actually trying to dance to I Kissed a Girl!!! Hahaha 🙂

I find it very funny when I explain what I am doing or what 365 ONE is. Today I had to explain a number of times and it’s just so funny to watch people’s faces and how perplexed they get – a little shaking of the head, a little head tilt, a little frowning! All in all, the same reaction and the same thought I am sure = Are You Crazy? They all did like it in the end though and also the added charitable encouragement part that I will add later on. I was glad they seemed to understand and oddly despite the questioning, they all seemed to be on my side. So thanks guys! I will need all the support I can get!

Speaking of support – if you like what you read, or see on my other blog with the improvised acting videos, or both, why not FOLLOW MY BLOGS!! 🙂 Or spread the word! Like the posts! Or all of that!! Why? Because this is quite the Challenge I have set myself and I really do need to know you are out there in some way. I know I will need it more the farther I get in to this but I want to make sure I get that far so any help would be much appreciated. And why not start your own 365 Challenge and join me!!! If I can do 11 criteria, you can do 1, right???!!
