Week Two #operationMOVE

My need to find motivation to help me with my fitness journey led me to #operationMOVE over at Kate Says Stuff.

I have pledged 1720 minutes for the month of September. Every week I do 240 minutes of roller derby training but it's just not enough. I'm not as fit as I would like to or should be. Ideally I would like to double that which is what I have pledged for September.

This week I had a bit of a lazy week. My arms were sore from beginning to do chin ups and Monday's off skates training had me in a corner like a little bitch. So I slacked off. Made excuses, ate lots of chocolate and paid for it on Friday when I had to work harder to make up the time lost.

I'm noticing a huge difference in the ease of exercises. Saturday I struggled to do even fifty push ups (on knees but I'm stretching my body out further each time so I'll get there eventually) and crunches but Friday I did one hundred of each quite easily. Doing chin ups (finally) is so exciting too!

This week I won't have the extra two hours skating so I'll have to make sure I exercise daily and push myself more. Time may be a bit difficult this week as well as the mister has an operation on Tuesday and will be staying at his mum's to recover. Our little set up outside is perfect for the kids to be happily playing while I exercise which will help unless it rains like predicted. No excuses though. NO EXCUSES!

Saturday - Fifty push ups, fifty crunches, five assisted chin ups, two hundred figure skaters, five minutes derby position, five one minute wall sits (25mins)
Sunday - Fifty push ups, ten assisted chin ups and w hours general skating. (130mins)
Monday - Fifty minutes circuit training and one hour thirty minutes roller derby on skates training. (140mins)
Tuesday - Fifty crunches with sesame as weight (7kg). (5mins)
Wednesday - Ten reverse pull ups, Two hours roller derby on skates training. (125mins)
Thursday - Six reverse pull ups, one chin up (!), dancing. (10mins)
Friday - Ten reverse pull ups, two chin ups (!!), forty minutes mixed exercises. (45mins)
Total time: 480 minutes



  1. Good job :) I keep a record too which helps motivate! I love looking through what I did over the week :)

    1. You nailed it! It feels like I've actually accomplished something :)

  2. Good job !!! Well done on what you have achieved this week !!
    Hope mister is ok on Tuesday.
    Have a great weekend !

    1. Thanks lovely! This week hasn't been as active unfortunately but oh well :)

  3. !!!!! Well, you're much better than me at the moment - I generally only make one two-hour session a week, although 4 hours last week and this week, but it won't be regular until I get more sleep! At least I can live vicariously through you :)

    1. Four hours doesn't even feel enough some weeks! If only we got paid to skate...


Just like everyone else I LOVE comments and they make me SMILE. I'll reply as soon as I can, but please know that I appreciate and read EVERY single comment. Thanks xxx
