Day 5 of 21 Day Challenge: Fun Times Limerick

March 28, 2014 3 min read

Today I actually have to go to work (for 4 hours), so I’ve been trying to get all my healthiness in order before I have to leave. Also, I’m sorry that my posts are so uninteresting. I feel really bad for boring any of those faithful followers who read about my challenge progress everyday. I hope that the sum of my blogs doesn’t amount to “I ate eggs, did the work out, it was hard, the end.” Well, I’m not sure if limericks are “interesting” but since that’s what my brain decided to create instead of sleeping last night, here’s what I came up with, dedicated to my celiac friends: There once was a girl who ate bread, But her bowel movements filled her with dread. Instead of her bloating, She soon started gloating, By using rice flour for baking instead!   I really don’t understand my mind sometimes. Sorry.   WORKOUT: Video used: Equipment needed: equalizer_fb Click here to get your equalizer kettlesandbell Click here to get your kettle sandbells Timer_FB Click here to get your Hiit timer Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 1.41.44 PM And check out the Challenge Guide and Burnout Workouts here 

Workout breakdown:

4 exercises, 3x through

50 seconds work – 10 seconds rest

1)   Out push + diamond push ups

2)   Get up, push-up + row

3)   L+R alternate push-ups + row

4)   5x push-ups + 5x reverse push-ups

Modifications:
  • used free weights instead of kettlebells
  • definitely had to go to my knees for the 2nd and 3rd round of the out/diamond push-ups. Although if I am feeling pretty burnt out, since there’s 3 rounds of exercises, I went to my knees for almost all the push ups in the 2nd round and tried going all out for the 3rd round.
  • Usually I can just use the backs of two chairs as my equalizer, but there was no way I was trusting them to not crash on top of me for the reverse push-ups, so I used a piano bench for the elevated push ups, then sit ups with weights instead of reverse push-ups.
  • I sort of missed my cardio, so I jogged in place for a bit after the workout (although I think being on my feet for 4 hours straight at work helped too)
  FOOD: For breakfast I had one two of my oatmeal banana morning muffins and tea. Lunch was leftover stir-fry, boring, but good. For dinner I wanted something that I could take with me to work because it would be an hour long drive there, and I knew that I would get hungry if I didn’t eat right before the show, so I packed a giant salad with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts, with a little olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette drizzled on top. I also brought the cookie dough bites along with me as well as my garlic kale chips to work, and they were DECIMATED. So save to say I’ll add those to my baking repertoire.   THOUGHTS:
  • I eat a lot of leftovers, mainly because I cook too much food/I have a small appetite (except for when it comes to burritos) so I found this cool life hack that if you want your leftovers to heat up evenly in the microwave just make a hole in the middle of the food.
  • There were some dance routines in the show and this one number featured some especially fit ladies, and I realized, I could do those dance moves, probably, if I was shown how anyway. ERGO, I could be a fit bit.

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.

Clothing

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.
