So I just returned from spending a long weekend (Thurs night till today) in Vermont for my niece's 2nd birthday! Last week, I was in a bit of a funk healthy eating/exercise plan wise, so I'm ready to get back on track after having a weekend of fun!
This week is school vacation, which means my work holds Socialization for the kiddos M-F 8-4 (plus our normal Saturday Socialization) AND this coming Sunday we are doing a Make-Up Socialization since we had to cancel Socialization 2 weekends ago due to the Blizzard Nemo that hit us. So, we have Socialization from 2/18 - 2/24 (Monday-Sunday).
I also have my 1:1 home-based program hours after Socialization M-F this week until 7.
I am going to be very busy and very tired.
However, next week, (Mon 2/25 onwards) I only work that Mon and Tues and then I get to go BACK to VT again for a week to help my sister/niece as my sister is due for her second daughter on 3/2.
Lots going on and I really want to try and stay on track and I am going to do everything I can to do so, but I am going to be putting in 80hrs of work in 9 days! I will be tired.
Anyways, on with the planning:
The 5% Winter into Spring Challenge starts this coming Saturday, 2/23 and I am VERY excited for this! I posted a blog last week about my accountability and the assignments we were to do before the challenge officially started, feel free to check it out on my page
Plan for this week:
Get up at 6 M-F to workout before work (only 30-45mins of fitness so that I have time to eat breakfast/get ready to goto work)
Saturday 2/23 our shifts starts at 7:30 instead of 8, so I'll give myself a morning off and not get up earlier (5:30) to workout, and instead I'll workout when I get home at 4 that night. This will also allow for me to workout longer
Sunday 2/24 will either be morning or evening. I will post what I am going to do as a status update Saturday night. It's going to depend on my energy level by then.
Mon 2/25 & Tues 2/26 will be my usual during the week schedule: get up between 6-7:30a and workout for at least 30mins (though typically if I'm on a role I'll get in about 60) During the week when schools in session my hours are in the afternoon afterschool
I head back to VT the AM of 2/27, but not until I get at least 30mins of fitness in!
My workouts this week before work will consist of:
Jillian Michaels 30 day shred DVD
Dance (Wii games/Zumba songs)
Coach Nicoles Total Body Sculpting DVD
Gold Gyms Dance Workout Wii Game
My starting activity alternates between Gold Gym, Jillian, or Coach Nicole
I then either do Gold Gym if Jillian or Nicole were first
I'll do some circuits
When I workout in the evening (particularly 2/23 or 2/24) Chris normally joins me and he loves Taebo, so we will definitely do that. We also stream some insanity workouts from YouTube once in awhile.
I, unfortunately, don't have much of a food plan in place right now - we need to go grocery shopping and I wont have much time for cooking, as you saw from my schedule.
Breakfasts will be my faithfuls that I posted in my earlier blog: PBJ sandwich, cereal, oatmeal, or toaster waffles
Lunches will be leftovers/yogurt/fruit/homemad
e chex mix
Dinners will be things like baked ravioli, chicken pot pie, tex mex soup, etc. Will have a plan more detailed later on.
Have a good week, everyone!
