May Fitness Challenge - learning, growing
Wednesday, June 06, 2012
I had one really good week in May - hard working out every day, eating well, meditation and re-focusing at night. Lo and behold I lost 2 lbs. that week! Well, whatdya know! Wonders never cease! To think that if I had done the same for the other three weeks I could have potentially lost 8 lbs. makes me more than a little regretful.
So, I need to work on finding ways to keep all of that up when vacations and belly dance shows come up. While I don't like doing an intense workout the day of or the day before a performance, I could still aim for getting a longer walk in the day before. It would probably help ease the nerves, as well! Key to getting this accomplished is being packed and ready well in advance instead of leaving everything to the last minute and stressing myself out!
I also found that scheduling morning and evening workouts helped me so much because even with skipping about half of them, I still had great workouts every day because I had so much scheduled! I just got Les Mills Body Pump so I'm excited to start those and I will come up with a Turbo Fire/Body Pump hybrid am/pm schedule for June! I also have lots of belly dance goals going on for our Bedford Winery dinner show on 6/23 and my 5k training to keep up. I am excited and ready for the hard work and fun times in June!
