"You gotta have you have goals??" Well, I do this week!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

After 7 weeks with barely losing 4 pounds, I decided it was time to take a close look at what I was doing, or not doing. This past week I have worked out everyday, watched what I was eating, especially after a not so good eating weekend last weekend. ...and for the first time in 5.5 months, I feel bad. I just don't feel good and I should feel great! I am on summer break for goodness sakes!

So I decided to actually write out my goals for the week, to help push me to a new level, to challenge myself, and hopefully help me bust out of the 160s.

Goal #1 - Cardio- 30 minutes everyday this week. I know that this will be pretty easy since I go to a 45 min TurboKick class at 6 a.m. MWF and *try* to run TRS. ...which brings me to my next goal...

Goal #2 - Run - 3 times this week. My hubby and I will run our 3rd 5K on July 9th while we are visiting his family in Baltimore. I set a goal to beat the time of my first 5K in April, 40:56, and try to actually do it in under 38:00. Didn't really get the running in this week...and it has been hard to get back into it after running my first race in April. So I haven't progressed over the last couple of months as much as I originally thought I would here is the running plan for this week...

Tuesday - Walk 2 min Jog 3, repeat 5 times, total 30 min

Thursday - Walk 2 min Jog 3, repeat 6 times, total 35 min

Saturday - Walk 1 min, Jog 4, repeat 5 times, total 30 min

TMR for the week = 63 minutes

Goal #3 - Strength Training - 3 times a week for 20 minutes. I def see where this has been lacking for the last few weeks and I know that it will really help to melt the fat like butter! Here's my plan.

Tuesday - BL Last Chance Workout Upper and Lower Body Sculpt

Thursday - Same as Tues

Saturday - Denise Austin's Burn Fat Fast - Strength section

Goal #4 - Ab work - each evening this week. The workout:

2 sets crunches
2 sets reverse crunches
2 sets side twist crunches
2 sets bridges
2 sets bicycle crunches
2 sets mod. push ups (ok, not necessarily abs but they do work the core)
2 mod plank hold 30 seconds each

Goal #5 - 5 Fruits/Veggies a Day. I certainly see where I have went astray on this one!

Goal #6 - WATER! Drink 4 "big cups" of ice water each day. Supposedly drinking ice water speeds up your metabolism...I just really like cold water!

Oh yeah... Goal #7 - NO CHOCOLATE! After my cousins bridal shower on the 21st of May, I ended up with all the leftover chocolates and nuts. Go figure! I have been eating chocolate everyday for the last few weeks, just a piece or two each, ...well, uhm,...maybe a bit more...but now I ate it all. So much for all my fitness minutes I accumulated each day.

So here's to an amazing, awesome, active week!!!
