So, I’m a cellist. At least I’m a performance major in a leading conservatory. Here’s the problem: I don’t practice (enough)! So me and my cello teacher made a deal: She needs to get back in physical shape, and I need to get in “cello shape”. so for every hour she spends in the gym or cooking a healthy meal, I have to practice and match it (ideally surpass it!).

VS 

Anyways so we’ve started a joint blog to details our daily challenges… check it out: fitcello.wordpress.com … We need all the encouragements you’ve got!

I’m very excited to be back! This summer announces to be great and filled with many many fun things. Among others, I’m going to an Elementary-school reunion – that’s right! – but more on that later… Also doing a bike tour of the state of New-York (6 days & 70 miles each day) for which I’m a bit apprehensive but very excited and of course my marathon training. But most important of all, I will be posting again 🙂

Mainly it’s the same concept as it was:

  • Monday: Healthy Recipe
  • Tuesday: Sports and exercise related articles
  • Wednesday: Nutrition topics
  • Thursday: Something new
  • Friday: Challenges and articles involving the blogging community 🙂

I hope you will forgive me for abandoning you all so abruptly, and let me know if there are things you would like to see on Three Green Leaves!

So maybe I haven’t talked much about it, but stretching as you all know is SO important. It may prevent injuries, warm your body up and cool it down after a good exercise session. More than that, it is so relaxing when we actually take the time to do it well, and it gives a very positive ending to whatever activity you were doing.
So let’s take a little break from the crunches and all, and focus on warm-ups and cool-downs.

.

Goal: a total of 60 minutes of stretching for the coming week

That means only 10 minutes a day for 6 days, but do it well!

Enjoy that little break from boot camp!

Let me just start by saying: This Challenge was a serious one.

Scoreboard

Now, the champion of the week, is Amy to whom no one came even close… yep that’s right, not even me (shame!). So here it is: I have not completed my own challenge! I know, I probably should get kicked out from this blogging world for that… but I’ll stand my ground! I could give you a million excuses as of why I didn’t complete it, and that’s exactly what I’ll do! 1) splinter. 2) unexpected bf showing up 3) crazy week 4) lack of planning skills 😉

So on that note, I still want to congratulate everyone who took part in it, cause it wasn’t easy! Britdanielle finished the crunches and was almost there with the Plyos… The as far as me and Marie goes, we gave it a good try, but seriously lacked planning (would you say so?).

So this coming week, we’ll have a more relaxing and less boot-camp challenge… you’ll see 🙂

Quick reminder that today is your LAST CHANCE to complete your challenge, so good luck to all, me included!

Woah, so last night I did my first Plyo workout for the Challenge, and let me tell you they are CHALLENGING! so if you haven’t had a chance to look over the New Challenge, here’s an overview:

THE CORE + PLYO CHALLENGE
See details Here

The Rules:

  • 1000 crunches & 200 Plyometric B****
  • You have until next Thursday (February 4th 11:59PM) to turn in your numbers.
  • Update me as often as you can by leaving a comment on the wall
  • Bring in as many people as you can, to help me and the world to be a FITTER and HEALTHIER place!
  • There’s a reason why I called it the Plyometric B****. If you REALLY can’t do it, just omit the push-up and stay in plank position.
  • JUST DO IT!

How Do You Get In? Just leave a message saying “I’m in” and I’ll put your name up on the board!
