Move It Like Mike Challenge - Week 3

Yes.....this would be week 3 of Move it Like Mike. I didn't update last week, not because I didn't complete the challenge, but because I was inundated with essays. Last week I did a FABULOUS job of the challenge. I went to the gym 4 days of the week with an average of an hour workout each time! I feel fantastic, even if I did feel quite ill after a couple of the workouts.

This week is looking a little less good. I've only done 2 workouts, so might have to go for a super long power walk tomorrow morning before work. How is everybody else going with their challenge?

Wedlings I Like

How awful is this freezing cold weather? Excuse any typos, I can't feel my fingers!

Here is one just for my sister. Maybe this spider won't freak her out!

Have you ever worried that you've taken warning signs too literally? This is why you should pay attention to them!

For my friend who I recently told that life is not a lego set, this will be about as close as you can get to it. Short of building yourself a lego house. These recreations are amazing!

Are you having a bad day? The cuteness of these baby hedgehogs will definitely make you smile! They're so cute!

CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE! One of everything please!

Hmm, ok, if I can't have one of everything, may I please have a SMILE HAPPY LIVE LONG mug? I LOVE TokyoBunnie!

OH, how I laughed! And chortled!

I've always maintained that Maleficent is the most villainous of the Disney villains. I'm glad that Listverse agree with me!

Move It Like Mike Challenge - Week 1

Hello chickens! Just when I think I've totally fallen off the blog bandwagon, Pip Lincolne flies in like an angel and resuscitates my blog, injecting me with a newfound inspiration and a way to keep me on track. Move It Like Mike is an idea that she had as a way to keep exercising, as she didn't want to let her audience down. What a great idea! If you want to sign up, just click on the link. This couldn't have come at a better time, as far as I'm concerned. Like Pip, I was wonderfully active last year, and felt better than I have in a long, long time. But recently a combination of a few issues mean that I haven't been as active as I would have liked. A couple of weeks ago I joined a new gym and have been quite good at keeping on track with exercise. The idea of Move It Like Mike is that you need to move for at least 20 minutes 3 times a week. I've already been twice this week, and I have my gym gear in my bag next to me, so I'm looking good for this first week of the challenge at least. I'll update my progress each Thursday, and please let me know if you have decided to sign up too!
Let's get fit together!
Love and Laughter
