I have truly enjoyed this week and all the activity that I have gotten in. The only thing that I wish is that I was able to do more. I see all the people posting 120 minutes everyday and wonder how they are doing it. I got a minimum of 45 minutes everyday this week and was sore for most of the week but not too bad considering it has been 5 months since I was really active.
I did pretty good with food all week although I could do with a little more preparation to meet my ranges a little better. I wish it was easier to put things together so that it was easier to eat according to my ranges. I eat plain oatmeal every morning during the week with raisins to sweeten it up and have at least 2 other fruits during a normal day and then have a home cooked meal for dinner, leftovers for lunch. I only eat off of a dessert plate to that I can't over serve myself and this week I even added a serving of veggies to a few meals. I'm really trying hard to get my body heading in the right direction.
I got my water intake up this week as it had been pretty low for a while. We don't have any juice or soda in the house so all we drink at home is water most of the time. My problem is with coffee at work, there is a constant fresh pot of coffee and the smell drags me in every time. This week I limited myself to one cup in the morning with my breakfast everyday except for today (I had 2). I was still able to get my 10 glasses of water in and I feel pretty good about that.
Today I changed up my routine a little and did the Total Body Sculpt Barre Body Blast with warm-up and cool down for a total of 28 minutes and then did the 20 minute Fat Blaster SP video for another 20 minutes. I was planning on working my legs and let me tell you both of those videos were a lot of leg work. When I was done with that I took a walk to the bank and back for 14 minutes. I am hoping to get lots of exercise in this weekend with some hiking and sightseeing if possible.
I want to thank all of those that are part of the 5% Challenge for everything you are doing to encourage not only me but everyone else here at SP to keep moving and stay focused.
Oh and guess what?!? I have earned one star for my constellation in this first week which means that I did more than 500 minutes of exercise in 7 days!!!! That is awesome and I'm so proud of myself.
Lets make this happen Shooting STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
