1. Cardio - 45 mins/4x a week - I at least did 30 mins/ 4x a week
2. Strength training - 15 mins/2-3x a week - I did pretty good in this area
3. WATER! WATER! WATER! - this is usually never a problem.
4. Snack on fruits and veggies - didn't do this so much
5. 30 Day Shred every other day - I don't know why I can't get back into doing Shred. It's easy and I know it makes me lose inches but I dread doing it.
6. Lose 1 lb a week - uncessful
7. No eating after 8pm - not good at all.
I slacked a lot the last two weeks of Feb. I usually do pretty good for a little bit and then slack and then its harder to get back on track and motivated. Just gotta keep trying.
Get a food journal - my biggest problem is watching what I eat so my main goal for March is to watch my intake. I'm usually pretty good when it comes to working out so once I get myself back in that routine I won't be worried about it. It's just getting the motivation part back.
1.5 mile run - 14:50
Push ups in a minute - 22
Sit ups in a minute - 42
Waist measurement - 36"
1.5 mile run - 15:31
Push ups in a minute - 20
Sit ups in a minute - 38
Waist measurement - 34.5"
I passed my physical fitness part of my test but failed my waist measurement so I automatically failed the whole entire test. It's very irritating when I am obvisously physically fit since I go above the minimums but get penalized because my waist isn't what the Air Force wants it to be. I'm pretty sure if I'm out in the field and theirs bullets flying at me, I'll still be able to save people's lives no matter how big my waist is. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING!
But on a positive note I cut time off my run and added more to my push ups and sit ups so that makes me happy :] All I can do is keep my chin up, work my butt off and pass in May.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. The sunshine is slowly coming back to Ohioooo
February has started off to such a great start...NOT! We got an ice storm and it sucks! I braved it out yesterday and drove to my parents house cause I really wanted to get on the treadmill...mind you they only live like a mile away lol. Today, I'm not feeling so brave cause we got more ice and snow last night. I decided I'm at least going to do Shred, inclined push ups, and situps after I scrap the ice off my car so I don't have to do it before work tomorrow morning :P I actually got lucky and didn't lose my power. There's lots of places that have trees down over the power lines. So, hopefully those people get their power back on REAL soon! Cross you fingers for no more ice or snow!!
My biggest problem is still watching what I put in my mouth. I'll do really great one day and then the next day I eat everything in site. So every other day I eat good lol. I've been thinking of starting a food journal to see what I actually shove in my mouth. So we'll see what I do.
Hope everyone has a great February and has great results :]
The past two days make me wish I had a garage or lived down south :]
*my poor car covered in ice. Yesterday was actually a lot worse when I had to scrap off my car.*
*underneath that snow is prolly a good 1/2" thickness of ice. I was ice skating on the apt driveway lol*
I am going to make 2011 my year. So here's to the start of a new me :] I weighed in this morning at a not so hot 162.5 lbs. I have 4 weeks to bust my butt for my military fitness test.Since I'm starting in the middle of January I combined my goals with the month of February too. I WILL NOT MAKE EXCUSES!
Jan & Feb Goals
1. Cardio - 45 mins/4x a week
2. Strength training - 15 mins/2-3x a week
3. WATER! WATER! WATER!
4. Snack on fruits and veggies
5. 30 Day Shred every other day
6. Lose 1 lb a week
7. No eating after 8pm
I can feel myself gaining weight and I really don't want to step on a scale and see the numbers right now. This is my own fault.
I have been using school as an excuse and I shouldn't be. I have been struggling in my Pharmacology class so I put off working out to be able to study more. So, I have to figure out a way to study and workout at the same time. I'm very weird when it comes to studying... I usually have to be in complete silence to be able to absord it all it... so I gotta figure out something.
The family gym membership my parents bought has expired so I have been using that as an excuse to not workout even though I can go to the base gym for free. I have this fear of gyms... i know it's a little ridiculous...lol. I feel like a complete idiot when I go to a new gym cause all the machinery is different. I just need to suck it up and start going after school again!
After failing my fitness test by 1.8 points I had gotten pretty bummed out about working out. I actually worked out and prepared for this way more than I ever have before and failing didn't help at all. I have to retest in February and I just realized the other day that I have about 11 weeks left to start training again... sooo here I go!
FOOOOOD! I like food wayyyyy too much. I have not been able to get this part under control AT ALL! This is by far my biggest struggle. I do good for awhile and then I get sick of eating healthy and eat all the fattening foods ever made! So, I need to start packing my lunch for work again and maybe prewriting what I'm going to have for lunch at school.
But other than that everything else has been going great! Abbie is doing great in school... talks a little too much though lol. She's going to be 7 in four weeks!!! It feels like she was just born! Me and the boyfriend are doing great...we have our moments though lol. He moved in with me in October and I'm excited about the holidays together. I have a happy little family :]
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. Stay strong during the holidays cause I sure need all the encouragement I can get!
