Week Eight

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Last weeks recap:

190 fitness minutes - I only got to 110; not too shabby though.
2 servings of veggies/day - Done!

I started the Spring into Shape challenge yesterday as well as the burn phase of my 24 day challenge. I like having the daily accountability and being in a group where everyone is doing the same thing. This week is my spring break so I have plenty of time and no excuses to skip workouts or eat unhealthy meals.

Weekly goals:

Complete daily bootcamp video - Each one is around 10 minutes long
Complete 5 cardio workouts of 30 minutes each - I may do some shorter and longer but will aim for 150 cardio minutes this week
Three servings of veggies per day - Bumping it up from last week

    Aww man! I seriously wish I had seen this blog post on Sunday. This week is my spring break also, and I would have started this with you. I actually find it harder to do well with fitness and nutrition when I'm at home for the break. Glad to see you're doing well. This really let's me know that I don't have any excuses either! lol Good job!

Week Seven

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I am so happy to have a four day week and to get spring break next week (for one of my schools, anyway). I am trying to get back to exercising more consistently as I finish up the cleanse phase of my challenge and start the burn phase. I was able to go for a hike this weekend although it was still pretty snowy and muddy. My goals for this week are to reach 190 fitness minutes and to eat at least two servings of veggies every day. I have no problem eating fruit! Hope everyone has a great week.

    Great goals! I know about hiking in the snow. I love winter but I'll be glad when it is nice to get outside. Too much ice under the snow!

I can't believe it's already March and that this week is halfway over! I really lost my motivation and momentum last month and am ready to get going again. I also started the Advocare 24-day challenge today so hopefully that will help me break through this plateau and stay accountable.

My goals for March:

700 total fitness minutes
lose 6 pounds
4 servings of fruits/veggies per day

Week Five

Monday, February 25, 2013

So, I am going to pretend last week never happened. I let myself get behind in school and was majorly stressed out. I didn't make it to the gym a single day and even ate out a couple of times. I am going to put that behind me and start fresh today.

Right now I am at 335 fitness minutes for the month and I want to finish strong. My goal for this week is to reach 165 fitness minutes. My plan is to hit the gym M-R for an intense 30 minutes of cardio and complete at least 15 minutes of strength training on MWF. I felt great and had so much energy when I was working out everyday - I want to feel like that again this week!

I am so glad that this week is almost over and am looking forward to a nice, long weekend. This week has been the pits. Starting Sunday I have had so much homework and three tests to study for. My last test is in differential equations and is in less than three hours. It will be so nice to be able to relax this weekend and maybe get some projects completed around the house.

As a result of the hellish week, I majorly slacked on my workouts. I only made it to the gym once and worked out at home twice. Yesterday I decided to skip the gym and it's a good thing I did because I had forgot to pack a shirt in my gym bag. I came home and popped my old friend No More Trouble Zones into the DVD player. I need to do more strength training! I only made it through the first four circuits. I can feel it everywhere in my body today and it feels good! I think I will try to work it in to the rotation twice a week. It is tough but it definitely produces results.

I usually weigh in on Fridays but my scale was reading between four and six pounds before I even stepped on it. My goal for February was to lose two pounds and it's only half over so I am not too concerned. I am also going to do measurements again at the end of the month. I think that will show the biggest change.

I need to make up some fitness minutes this weekend. I am going to try NMTZ again on Monday and put in some cardio time tomorrow. Maybe the weather will cooperate and I can go hiking. Hope everyone has a great weeekend!

    I hope you get your hike in, or at least a nice walk outside.
