7 Weeks Left!

Monday, March 28, 2011

I have 7 weeks to get my butt into shape for my military physical fitness test! I have been trying to go to Zumba whenever I can. I've mainly been going to Zumba to help with my waist. Because the first time I did my PT test with the new standards my waist was good and I think it was because I had been going to Zumba along with the other exercising I was doing. I also need to get myself back on the treadmill or run outside (who knows with this crazy Ohio weather) and do my push ups and sit ups. I AM GOING TO ROCK THIS PT TEST! !

    Running definitely gets me back into shape...that's why I always include it into my workout plans. Lately I've been running every other day:-). Anyway, hope you can make it to zumba more often if you see results! No excuses!

March Goals

Sunday, February 27, 2011

These were my Jan and Feb goals and the progress-

Jan & Feb Goals

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.

March Goals

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.

Hope everyone has a great weekend :]

Military Physical Fitness Test

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Feb 2011

1.5 mile run - 14:50
Push ups in a minute - 22
Sit ups in a minute - 42
Waist measurement - 36"

Nov 2010

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 emoticon

    Well, that's a crappy rule!!! Great job on the improvements, just keep working at it and you'll have those inches off by May. Thank goodness I'm not required to have certain measurements for my job...I'd be unemployed :).

ICE ICE BABYYYY

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

emoticon 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!!

emoticon 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.

emoticon 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*


*time to Shred since I'm cooped up in the house*

    I'm a little over 162 so already you are better off than I am! I like the calendar. I use a huge desk calendar and put it on my wall. Instead of scheduling workouts I cross them out. Maybe doing it your way would make me more accountable and forced to get my workouts in no matter how busy I am...hmmm.
