Plan for the week

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Okay, so the plan for the week....
I kind of came to a realization last week that I haven't been doing near enough. I think I used my injury as an excuse for way too long. I've been out of a cast for 2 1/2 months now, and its been 6 months since my injury. Its time to step things up and come up with a more regular routine. I know myself, and variety is going to be the key for me. But, I also need to add in some flexibility because I have an unpredictable schedule. So, here's what I have for now...

Monday: 30 min outdoor skating, 60 min class at the gym
Tuesday: 30 min outdoor skating, 60 min derby off skates class
Wednesday: 60 min free skate at rink
Thursday: 90 min Bikram yoga
Friday: 60 min outdoor skating
Saturday: off day
Sunday: 90 min derby practice

Still working on a diet plan...

Goals BLC 23

Monday, September 09, 2013

I guess I'm really starting over this time. This is really like starting from square 1. After breaking my ankle in May, I was immobile for 3 months. I pretty much sat around and ate. All of my measurements are larger, my weight is up, and my muscle tone is gone. So, its time to get back in the game!

I start PT in two days, so I will be following whatever they say. I'll also be following some exercise programs that are specific for roller derby to get my body into shape.

My goals:
Get down to 140 lbs by the end of the round
Be cleared to skate by November 1
Be cleared for contact drills by the middle of December
Bike rides with the family at least 3 days a week

BLC 20 Twelve Week Plan

Monday, September 17, 2012

As part of the first challenge of BLC 20, I'm supposed to blog my 12 week plan for success. I have to say, this has really been a difficult for me this time. Its easy for me to come up with a plan. On the other hand, trying to come up with ways to keep myself from sabotaging the plan is harder.

The first thing I thought about was what sort of a fitness plan I could have that I would stick with. I realized that part of what causes me to fail is often my unpredictable work schedule. Any plan that involves organized classes or scheduled times just won't work for me. I also discovered that I need to have something that is part of an organized program. After all of this thinking, here's what I've come up with:
* Weeks 1-6: I will be doing the Slim in 6 program
* Weeks 7-10: I will be doing Jillian's Ripped in 30
* Final weeks: Starting one of the other Beachbody programs that I have...
As a supplement, when I have the time, my goal will be to make it to at least 1 yoga or Pilates class at the gym each week.

To help with consistency, I will be sure to have my exercise clothing in one place ready to go at the beginning of the week. I'm also working on my mindset...Just taking that first step each day and the rest will follow....

Nutrition is usually a bit easier for me. Though I have a husband and kids, they really don't give me a hard time about what I eat. They're not necessarily supportive as far as not bringing poor choices in the house, but that usually doesn't bother me. Keeping foods that I like around seems to help.

For the first few weeks, I'm working on making some foods ahead of time. I'd like to get in the habit of having my lunch foods ready to pack at the beginning of the week. Sundays usually aren't too busy for me unless I get called into work, so I shouldn't have a problem doing this.

Once I get a handle on that, I'm going to try a round of the Whole30 program. I just bought the book and want to finish reading it before starting. I will then make up some meal plans so I don't have to think about what I can grab to eat. That's one thing that I have found about myself...if I plan out my meals ahead of time, I do much much better. I just have to build in some flexibility in case I'm stuck at work with no access to food.

Well, that's my plan in a nutshell. I'm not great at writing about myself and my plans, and have a thousand other thoughts in my head. But who wants to hear all that?? LOL

    You did great Rena. Great goals!! I also love that you recognize your struggle is sabotaging your plan so you put thought into what you are going to do about it.
Funny, we are backwards. The fitness is what I don't even have to think about, my problem is sticking with the nutrition. Bad things in the house can totally do me in. So great job on conquering that. :)

Let's Go GREEN team!!

    Very interesting. Some of those are difficult to answer with one word.

    Strangely enough, answering with one word on some of those is really hard! I had to come up with a different favorite store since my real favorite is two words!

5 things for myself

Thursday, January 19, 2012

1. Highlight hair
2. Get eyebrows waxed (and maybe a bikini wax? that one can wait, i think!)
3. Sign up for yoga classes
4. Clean out and organize car
5. Go through clothes and put away the ones that don't fit and make me sad!

This was my list for the challenge this week. I've managed to go through my clothes, but the rest is having to wait. It'll get done within the next 5 weeks though! Yay me!
