Next month I will continue using weights. I want to get back to where I was before where I could see the muscles in my arms. I'm going to increase the intensity in my cardio some. Plus I'm going to add yoga back in to increase my flexibility.

I plan to do my 28 day boot camp dvd. I also plan on fine tuning my diet. I also want to explore my emotional issues with food.

We are coming off an intense week of exercise and I don't really want ot start all over again with a slow starting plan. So its Coach Nicole's "28 Day bootcamp" dvd for me and I am really interested in the one hundred pushup site. I think I might do that as well. I have always wanted nice looking, non giggling arms. This might be the way to do it!

It only takes a spark, to get a fire going!

I plan to continue with the toning videos and I think I'll search out some others to add variety to my workouts. I'm going to stick with at least 5 days of cardio a week and include a swim on one of those days. I'm also going to keep using the menu planner because it makes my life soooo much easier. I'm loving exercising and eating healthy. Not sure why I didn't do it sooner!

My plan is to continue the toning videos, working up to the "advanced" challenges and repeating the videos more than once.

I shall be continuing with the videos each week, but different ones, trying to alternate them.
I hope to continue using the exercise ball at least once a week and use my resistance bands and hula hoop. I am going to try skipping with a rope. Will carry on dancing and running which I hope to build on. I am back to exercising after not doing so much at Christmas and New Year.
My goal is to eat more fruit and vegetables, like I did in summer last year. I shall grow my own again this year. I will walk 6 days a week and hike at least once a week.
I am going to stay with the Spirited Underdogs and apply to join the Spring 5% challenge.

I have restarted my 5k walking plan/team, so I'll keep following that. When I'm done with the 5k walk, I'll move up to the walk/jog program. There's a 10k here this summer that I want to do. I have done it before, but I want to do it faster this year. It's not until the third Saturday in June, so I should be in good shape for it by then.

I'm actually doing "A Year of Challenges" and doing something different every month. My February challenge is a 100 Push Up Challenge. I overlapped the first two weeks with this one since it's a 6-week program. The website is hundredpushups.com.

You start out with a "placement test" to see how many push ups you can do, then based on those results, you follow a training program that's outlined on the website. I started out able to do 6. I am now halfway through my week two and I can do 32 push ups without stopping! I think this is a great challenge for anyone who wants to tone the arms and shoulders. It takes about 15 minutes, 3 times a week, so it's very easy on a busy schedule.

I'm thinking I'll be doing the sweatsuit to swimsuit challenge next. Maybe the 5K training program after that.

I have loved doing this challenge, and love the weekly emails, goals, and way it links into and automatically updates the fitness tracker.

I would like to do another challenge - - I've seen the listing for 28 day bootcamp and Spring into Shape. It looks like those are formatted exactly the same as the January Jumpstart. Does anyone have any thoughts on what they're doing next? While I loved this one, it would be interesting to find something a little bit different, but with some of the same benefits.

I got a copy of the 28 Day bootcamp. It focuses on cardio and strength training so that should get me through the next month.

I have loved doing this challenge and really look forward to amping it up even more this last week.

Looking at long term planning, I'm going to keep strength training 3-5 times per week. I'd like to make these 20 minute sessions, but I'll take 10 minutes since frequently that will be all the time I can squeeze in. Cardio will happen 5 times/week. It will probably usually take the form of walking around campus, but campus is big and the weather will be warming up soon. Until then I have the gym and Coach Nicole's awesome videos. emoticon
