Yay for Platinum Sit-Ups!

Happy Tuesday and Happy “return to our family routine” day. No snow in the forecast for today so the family will start back into the swing of things. I love my kids and being able to be around them but there is really something to allowing some grown up time daily that I now appreciate more than ever.

Got up at my usual 5a and headed to boot camp with the Plumbline Ladies!

I wanted to share a big milestone for me that happened today! Since I started camp, I have not been able to do a Platinum Sit-up. I have tried and tried. You basically hook your feet under a heavy dumbbell, starting in a standing position, you lie down and then stand up without using your hands. Well today, I was able to do them. Now I know I have come a long way since the beginning of this journey, but it’s really nice when you get to see some quantitative data on it. I was so excited that I stopped doing them to share the news but then remembered that I was in the middle of my round and continued on! It’s just proof that you never stop growing…

Here’s an example of a Platinum Sit-up or aka Sit Up to Stand:
