Fall Fresh Start Comes to an End

Saturday marks the end of the final week of my 6-week personal Fall Fresh Start Challenge.  I am pretty happy with the results... and very happy that I got back into the groove of daily workouts and am enjoying it all so much.

  • 5 km run and 10 minute stretch
  • 10 minutes of upper body work w/dumbells
  • 3 of fitknitchick's work along videos for a total of 30 minutes
  • CRUNCH yoga/Pilates DVD for a total of 40 minutes
  • Karen Voight's Burn and Firm DVD for a total of 45 minuts
  • Renewed Fitness #MakingMoves High Plank with a Twist - 20 per side
  • 5 km run and 10 minute stretch
  • Renewed Fitness #MakingMoves Single Leg Bridge - 20 per side
  • 30 minute walk
  • Renewed Fitness #MakingMoves Side Plank - 30 seconds per side
I am already working on my November goals and intend to carry on with my workouts and tightened up food plan, full steam ahead! 

For me, the hardest part about side planks is putting all my weight on my forearm and elbow.
Take 5 today
  • I picked up a copy of The Abs Diet at the library today and have been reading through it and can see that there are some changes I can easily make toward eating leaner.
  • Another wine/alcohol-free day under my belt and I like that I can spend those calories on nourishing food!

Did you have a good week?  Anything new on the horizon?

Are you taking part in this years Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge?

Are you turning your clocks back before you head to bed tonight, or will you change them in the morning instead?


  1. I am doing the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge too! I need to get my blog up tonight! I will probably change it before bed. I have to get up around 6 to do 12 miles tomorrow and I don't want it to be messed up!

  2. Great job on the Fresh Start Elle! I am following in your footsteps. Needed to get that pesky marathon out of the way. Nowim looking forward to changing uo my routine. I'm excited!

  3. I'm thinking about going back to making my own circuit/bootcamo style workouts and posting them on the blog. No videos though. Noone wants to see that. :-)

    What is the Holiday Booty Buster Challenge? Did I miss something?

    Congrats on finshing your Fresh Start Challenge. I bet it feels great!

    1. The Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge is run by Amanda at Run to the Finish

      Check it out!

  4. I've read The Abs Diet before and it's a really good read. You'll enjoy it!

  5. Good work! You seem to be staying very active at the moment.

    I'm not HBBCing this year - I enjoyed it last year but only saw it as a bit of fun. This year seems much more serious than I fancy. I might do MarathonTalk's Jantastic though...


Love it when you leave me a comment!
