4W2F: Day 3/Meet Danielle!

14 Jun

Wednesday – the day I have to be out of bed, eat breakfast and drive to Danielle’s place for our 6AM workout. In true Tasker fashion, I am usually a bit late.

breakfast on the run – 1/2 banana

Danielle & I have been focusing on upper body workouts. They usually last around 35 minutes & they usually suck pretty bad (in a good way). It’s awesome to have someone to workout with who actually knows what they’re talking about.

Today, we focused on arms/abs. We used 3LB & 1LB weights and did various punches, worked on abs and threw some pushups in there – 210 to be exact (I was happy to have my 200 pushups out of the way even before 7AM).

We did a bunch of different sets, one example;

20 punches – 3lb weight (standing, hands by your face, normal punches)
20 uppercuts – 3lb weight (standing, hands by your chin, punch upwards)
20 shoulder punches – 3lb weight (standing, hands by your face, punch behind your shoulder)
20 pushups – from toes
repeat 5 times

When I got home, I took the dogs for a little walk – they need their exercise, too!

Food summary of the day:

after-workout snack: smoothie (berries, milk & pb)

Wednesday’s Food:
snack – 1/2 banana
lunch – black beans & corn with tuna
snack – watermelon and cantaloupe

Dinner – mushroom/herb&garlic cream cheese stuffed chicken breast, jasmine rice & broccoli & cauliflower

The girls came over last night for movie night. We had some watermelon/cantaloupe & kettlecorn to snack on!

I wanted to touch on something that has really helped me throughout this process and something that I think is really important… SUPPORT! I needed it & I had a lot of it when it came to working out and committing to a fit lifestyle.

The person who really got me into being fit is Danielle. You’ve already heard her name a lot and that’s because she has really helped me this whole time. She took my sorry butt and turned me into a workout-loving, 10K-running, healthy-eating, (mini)pushup-doing girl.

Danielle & her pipes

Team Re-Newall: 5K 1st Place

She is the owner of Re-Newall Fitness, she teaches bootcamps, does personal training, running groups, meal plans, kettlebells, sports agility (to name a few) & she’s a pretty good dog-sitter, too. She can kick your butt in a push up competition and is the only person I’ve ever known who actually likes burpees.

Danielle lives & breathes this lifestyle, she is so passionate and dedicated. She knows her stuff: if you have fitness questions, she’ll find the answer. If you haven’t tried one of her classes, you should – you won’t regret it.

She has supported me a a lot of ways – she answers any questions I have, she’s got great advice about fitness, she trained me for 3 months, she taught me how to run, she gives me recipes and meal ideas, gives me weekly challenges… the list goes on! So my advice is – get some support! Surround yourself with people who want you to succeed in whatever you’re doing & you will. As the month goes on, I’ll introduce you to the other people who’ve really helped me along the way, too!

Who supports you? Do you support your friends and family, too?

until day 4,
mrs tasker

ps – I hope all of you are joining in with our 200/day pushup challenge!
