Simple Diet Journal #36 -- BeFit 90 Days 2 & 3 and Walk/Jog 5k

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Today is Day 3 of Be Fit in 90 -- a rest day. I'm ready to go further, but have decided to follow the plan as written, just to see. So watched the 20 second training tip about the importance of warming up -- and 'tis done.

I really have been liking it so far. It's very easy to do at home as, so far, all you need is yourself, some space to stretch out and move around -- but not too much, and dumbbells. A friend lent me P90x once and without a pullup bar, it just didn't make sense for me to do that program.

For BeFit in 90 -- Each day has 4 segments -- begins with a 4 minute warm-up, c. 10 min tone/dumbbells set, c. 10 minute cardio -- day one "boot campy", day two "MMA", and 4 to 5 minute cool down -- day one "stretch and flexibility", day two, "yoga".

Some of the exercises require a lot of arm and core strength and are beyond my ability to do multiples -- so I modify and do as much as I can, looking forward to the day I'll be rocking this plank maneuver where you go into plank and then go down on one arm, go back up to plank, and go down on the other arm. For me, that's tough to do at the pace these incredibly fit and buff people are doing them -- but I'm trying! Also often happy that I'm at home trying this stuff!

I already mentioned this on the Be Fit in 90 team forum -- but the trainers voices (love the main woman's accent!) are easy to listen to -- and they're encouraging.

The fact that it's only 35 minutes makes it very easy to incorporate for me -- at least for the first 2 days! Here's to 88 more days of easily incorporating 35 minutes!

Walk/Jog 5k mixed with Run Your Butt Off Program --

I'm between Stage 2 and 3 of RYBO (I'm doing Walk 4, run 1.5 minutes) --
Stage 2 is 4 minutes of walking to 1 minute of running (repeat 4x) for 3 or 4 weeks
Stage 3 is walk 4: run 2 minutes (repeat 4x) -- suggested to do for 3 or weeks also.
Stage 4 is walk 3: run 3 (repeat 4x)

For the SparkPeople Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program -- it's a faster pace program (although it may seem that way for me because I didn't start with the other plan, which has the 1st five weeks of only walking)

I completed Week One of Training (simultaneously, of course)
Week Two has Walk for 3 minutes, then jog for 1.5 minutes. Repeat 5 more times. (Total workout time: 27 minutes). Guess it's RYBO Stages 2-4.

So, have talked mainly about working out today. But, my nutrition is on my mind, too -- to stay on point, to know that this day leads to my success! And yours, too!!!!

Quote for the day:

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live."

Smiles for you today!

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What!

    I'm so glad you like BeFit!
    I also modified some of the exercise, like the up-down plank I do it on my knees. And the push-up too!

    In less than 90 days, we will feel so proud!

    And, for Skinniesomeday's question:
