Mission 5 with pics

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Repeat of mission 2: Goals: 100 min Cardio and focus on total body ST
Fri: 60 min cardio, 30 min jog

Here's my proof! This is about as B2W as I get. Bundling up a baby and a toddler to take the new stroller out on icy roads. It was hard! I'm not a runner... YET!!! When we got home, I was drenched in sweat and their noses were bright red. I need Spring. Unfortunately, we're supposed to get 6-12 more inches of snow on Tuesday. screw you, MN.


Sat:
20 min Jackie Warner abs
30 min Biggest Loser LC workout (circuit training)
motivation:

I do well with workouts on the weekends, but I usually eat WAY too much. In the past, I do well during the week, binge all weekend, and then work my butt off all week to even out. And repeat. Something had to change. I think that's why I have been doing better the last few months. I have been much more careful about what, and how much, I eat on the weekends.

Sun:
40 min eliptical
40 min weights (total body)
Motivation:
I cooked and baked up a storm yesterday. Since I didn't get a food pic up last mission I thought I'd throw it in here. I made a few recipes from
www.fannetasticfood.com/recipes/
This is the Sweet Potato Lentil Soup. yummy! It has kale in it: super food! And the cranberry quinoa power bars. Love these too. Very easy and a great homemade protein bar. No HFC syrup here!!


Thumbs down for the pumpkin blueberry muffins.

Great healthy weekend for me!

Mission 4

Friday, March 04, 2011

FEBRUARY 28 - MARCH 3

MAKE ME PUSH MYSELF

Continue working on the part of your body that you started with this weekend!.

For those of you who chose CORE/ABDOMINALS to work on this week... look up a new workout to try on 2-3 of the next 4 days. That would add up to about 45-75 minutes in 4 days. On Friday, I will ask you to report in on how many minutes you spent working on your CORE.
M: 20 min Jackie Warner core workout + 60 min cardio class
T: rest day
W: 15 min Denise Austin abs (rest day, so better than nothing!)
Th: JM yoga meltdown 30 min and 20 min walk
35 just core. There are lots of planks and twists in yoga meltdown, so maybe I can cheat and stretch it to 65 minutes???!

The middle of the week is hard for me with work and family and yadda yadda yadda excuses. So while I know this doesn't look like a lot, it is much more than I was doing a few weeks ago. It is good for me to have a focus (this week: abs) and to get in as much as I can. A short 10 minutes of abs is better than 10 minutes on the couch.

BONUS: To mix it up- try adding different kinds of core strengthening moves- such as twists- or attempt a Pilates DVD that focuses on your core muscles. done and done!


CHALLENGE BONUS: Try a new fun healthy recipe this week on a day that you had a killer workout. Post a pic (if you can- totally optional) of both proof of your workout AND the delicious healthy meal you made yourself for a full circle of sexiness.
Check out one of my favorite food blogs:

www.fannetasticfood.com/recipes/

I've tried a few recipes and they've all been great. The Sweet Potato Whole Wheat Bread Pudding is amazing! I used pumpkin and it really did taste like pumpkin pie.

Mission 3

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Mission Three - Friday - Sunday (2/25-2/27)

Choose ONE area to workout this weekend that is NOT the one you worked out last weekend. Choose from UPPER BODY, LOWER BODY or CORE. If you want to do a total body workout this weekend, that's cool- but try to put emphasis on one of those three. Do TWO workouts this weekend for this - this should only take you 45 minutes to two hours total for the whole weekend.

CORE for me! I neglect this area big time even though I know how important it is. I tried a 10 min standing ab video today. HATED it! so then I just did about 10 more minutes of ab work from pilates moves and stuff that I actually like. My tummy feels it right now! I'll try another video tomorrow.
I love OnDemand. I did a different 10 min ab thing on Sat and it was great. Today I did a 20 min Jackie Werner video. holy crap! I struggled to keep up with the modified movements most of the time! lots of moves I've never done before. I'll definitely do it again.
40 + minutes abs this weekend that I would not have done without this challenge. B2W!!!!

Try to get in AT LEAST 30 minutes of cardio and 10 minutes of stretching this weekend!
Fri- 30 min BL last chance workout + 20 min walk
Sat- yoga meltdown + 20 min ST with resistance bands
Sun- 60 min cardio class + 10 min stretching

B2W Mission 2

Make Me Muffin Top-less !!!

For Mission One this last weekend, I am proud to report that my max time for plank on elbows is: 75 seconds and plank on hands: 63 seconds

I also tried out a new squats video and added JM shred back into routine.

I also did a 60 minute cardio class.

I posted my proof: ummmm, I took "before" pics for the first time and that was a big step. That was all I did with a camera. you'll just have to trust me this time!

This week's mission!.
For those who chose TOTAL to work on first... continue your new workout on 2-3 of the next 4 days. That would add up to about 60-90 minutes in 4 days (NOT EACH DAY- ALTOGETHER).
M: yoga meltdown 30 min (I should start adding shovel time. That's a total body workout and we're in the middle of another effing blizzard. I'm so over this winter.)
T: strength training 20 min
W: yoga meltdown 30 min
Th: off
total minutes: 80


A) Cardio - do AT LEAST 100 minutes of dedicated cardio before you go to bed Thursday night.
M: BL last chance workout video 30 min
W: Body step class 60 min (+10 min run on treadmill to get to 100 min!)
Th: off
total minutes: 100

Each day this week, find one small thing that motivates you and find a way to save.
Mon:
Make me Muffin Top-less!

I want these jeans to FIT.

Tues:

I'm obsessed with Jillian. I love her videos. Yoga Meltdown is my favorite right now and I can feel myself getting stronger.

Wed:

My babes!! The 3 of us do videos together. P in the bouncy seat and W and me getting crazy with Jillian. A 2 year old yelling at you to do what "the exercise girls" do is hilarious and motivating. She gets mad if I'm not doing exactly what they're doing.

Thur:

Tomorrow is my rest day. I'm getting ahead of myself because I have the time today and won't tomorrow. But... just because I won't have gym or video workout time, doesn't mean I can't move my athletic body! as much as I can. every step counts.

breakfast buffett

Sunday, February 20, 2011

such a dangerous place! Not my choice of where to go out to eat. (in-laws were in town and their fav place) Anyway, for the first time in my entire life, I conquered the buffett. I loaded up my plate with fruit, little bit of eggs, and a low-fat yogurt. I had one small bite of my husband's sausage and 3 bites of daughter's french toast. not bad at all. No bacon. No cheesy hash browns. None! at! all! You have no idea what a big deal this is. Hash browns are my favorite. I am a high carb girl. Potatoes used to be my best friend. This morning I looked at them and said, "no way jose."

off to the gym...

    Good for you! I had too much to eat this weekend eating out for a special occasion and then at my mom's house with family. However, I didn't eat nearly as much as I could have, wanted to, and would have before. Baby steps.

Have a great time at the gym!
