Day 9 of 21 Day Challenge: No Clever Title

April 01, 2014 3 min read

What can I say about today? Definitely feeling better than yesterday, and pretty pumped to do today’s workout, now that I feel totally up to working out. I’m hoping I don’t hit a half-point slump, because as of noon tomorrow the challenge is halfway complete. What better way to stay pumped? Try a new recipe! And rock that workout of course.

8)   Wide frog mountain climbers

9)   10 mountain climbers + pike V jump

Modifications:
  • Alternated between high knees and squat jumps.
  • For the “drop it like it’s hot” I still don’t have kettle sandbells, and didn’t think throwing my weights on the floor was a good idea, so I got my heftiest magic bag (one of those bags filled with beans that you heat up for sore stomachs) and although it wasn’t much weight it did make a satisfying “thwomp” sound when it hit the ground.
  • For the uber wide squats, on the side lift I tried adding in a bit of an oblique twist as well, just to give it an added bonus, plus distract from how much my legs were burning.
FOOD: Breakfast was coffee, and an apple with peanut butter. Fun fact, an apple gives you as much energy as a cup of coffee – guess I’ll be super energized now. For lunch I made pumpkin buckwheat pancakes, a new recipe for me, but they turned out well. So apparently buckwheat isn’t really a type of wheat? Well, that’s an incredibly misleading name. And it’s gluten-free, right? I’ve realized during this challenge that I must annoy the gluten intolerant people out there to no end. Don’t worry, I won’t ask about oats – I know better now. For dinner we went out again before dropping my grandma and aunt off at the airport. I’m not sure why, but we ended up at Swiss Chalet, yet again – probably the only two times I have been in the past two years. I splurged a bit carb-wise because I wanted pasta, so I got the vegetarian penne pesto, with the sauce on the side, (I actually only ended up using about a teaspoon of it, really didn’t need much) and a side salad. Then a nice herbal tea before bed. THOUGHTS:
  • It’s really hard to remain vigilantly healthy for 21 days. I think I’m doing an okay job though, and I’m trying not to beat myself up too much if I mess up or decide to treat myself here or there. After all, I’ve done all of the workouts without fail, and I’ve managed to maintain a very gluten-light, veggie and protein-heavy food regimen thus far. That being said, probably not going to do pasta again anytime soon, it’s really sitting in my stomach, and I’d much rather have a burrito or some chocolate as a treat than pasta.

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 2-3 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.
