Wrap up of the week, some goals for the rest of June

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Week 1 of fitness day camp is over!! emoticon Even though the weather was cooler yesterday we spent our morning swimming in the country in an underground, heated pool. We had a blast and a good workout too! We improvised our afternoon, spending quiet time during a snack of whole grain tortilla chips with homemade salsa, touch football for the boys, dancing and workout for the girls, and ending with gym time and stretches for everyone. My homework in my off week is to help come up with some crafts, and fitness activity ideas for all the session starts June 20!

As for me and my goals, I am adding a new challenge for me to switch up my strength training. Through a spark article I found a link to a 100 push up challenge: One of the kids' goals this last week was to do so many pushups a day & I seized the opportunity to improve my own numbers. I've worked up to 15 REGULAR pushups before going to my knees and being able to churn out about 10 more before having to rest. The above is a 6 week program, so by the end of July I should be superwoman! After a two week hiatus I've started running again, and was able to fit in 4.6 miles on the treadmill Thursday night in my hour workout time. I will make it up to 5 miles by the end of June and will work on running a minimum of 2 days a week. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nothing new nutrition wise other than learning from this week at camp how lucky I am to have access to my choice of foods when I am at home. Some of the meals were not as clean as I like to eat, nor did they contain the carb/lean protein punch that I've been working towards. I am not sure that packing my own food is an option, as I would hate to eat stuff in front of the kids...I don't really have time away where I can sit by myself for 15 minutes and have my own snack. So, we'll worry about the present and just focus on smart choices again while I am at home emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Now that I've procrastinated enough, I'm going to get my workout in before walking to the library with the boys. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
