The 30 Day Challenge Day 1: The Pain...The Pain!

January 21, 2014 2 min read

Thoughts: I loved the last challenge.  I admit I was daunted by the 40-60 minute workouts with that much skipping but I came to love them in an 'I know this is helping' kind of a way.  I did make it all the way through the last 30 day challenge which was a great achievement for me.  This round will be a little different because my husband is working a lot more so its me soloing it with daughter most of the week, fun but hard to workout.  I will either get up an hour earlier or I'll do it during her nap.  It is possible to workout with kids and to keep a regimen going. Today I worked out in the morning and the 12 minutes was perfect.  On the last round I modified the spider push ups and went down on my knees.  But I loved the workout and it really helped with my mood the rest of the day.  I did add in 40 weighted squats as my "bonus" round with 25 lbs so that I can continue to work my butt and legs. So modifications: I don't have the equalizer but to modify I'll either use the bench or the large dip station that we have in the garage.  It's basically the same thing...but not moveable.  I'm also a wimp at push ups.  I can get about 10-20 in before I can't do anymore so I move to my knees.  I always start out with the same exercise and push myself till I give out and then I modify.  It builds up strength over time.  I also don't have a sandbag but we do have the Gold's Gym free weights that you can change with a bar.  Those work just fine. share  

(If you're wondering about the owls in the background...my daughter is crazy about owls...they have taken over our house.)

Food: I always eat breakfast before I workout.  There's something about the way my body functions that it needs a complete meal before a workout...otherwise I can barely get through it.  I'm following the Nutrition Guide as best I can and there's something about clean eating.  I always feel great and today I'm really needing that extra protein.  Today I ate really well and quit eating around 7 and now I'm just drinking my water. share Progress: So my goals...I've got big ones.  I really want to define my waist more and lose the fat that hasn't left since my pregnancy.  My but also looks weird in that photo...I think its the way I'm standing (if not well more squats for me).  I love my thighs but I'd like to tone them more.  I also want to really get in the habit of 5-6 meals a day with more veggies.  I'm also doing lemon, cucumber, and mint infused water to help get in as much water as possible.  I also want to get over my hurdle of "I can't do this."  So often I get hung up on what I can't do that I don't focus on what I can.  I always try and go into a workout like I'm going to kill it and that I'm a bada**.  It definitely helps.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
