I have been much better this week with regards to my fitness levels. See, a problem shared is a problem halved!
The mornings have still been a bit of struggle so I’ve been excercising after work during the week.
I stuck to eating clean for all meals but struggled towards the end of the week with my terrible sweet tooth. Chocoholic. Like, really bad, I ate 2 Reese’s Peanutbutter Cups after breakfast this morning…then felt sick all damn day. I used My Fitness Pal all week (yes, I even put the chocolate fails in) but I’m really not enjoying counting calories so I might give that a miss next week.
I still haven’t managed to get my body fat calculated, my gym has just started a new membership incentive so it’s like the New Year boom all over again. I’d still like to get it done but for now I’ve just been weighing myself. Although I’m not big on weighing either as my weight tends to fluctuate 2/3lbs day to day.
Saturday– 60mins BodyAttack Class
Sunday– 5k run (slow)
Monday-45mins spin class & 45 swim breaststroke (really slow)
Tuesday-60mins BodyAttack class
Wednesday-60mins group training
We done a tabata style workout and then some core work.
Thursday-REST- dress shopping should qualify as cardio, if only we hadn’t stopped at Starbucks.
Friday– 60mins group training
Today’s training session was tough but I really liked it. Fiona our trainer used a deck of cards. Each suit was a different excercise-kettle bell swings, press ups, squat jumps & burpees. When she turned each card over we had to double it (4 diamonds = 8 burpees). Face cards were 10 sit ups and ACE was whatever she decided.
Loving being back into a routine and feel like I’m getting my excercise mojo back.
Plan for the week ahead…
Ignore the chocolate cravings – It’s getting ridiculous.
Morning workouts – I want to try at least 2. I prefer morning workouts I just also prefer bed. A lot.
5 workouts, minimum – A combination again but I’d like to get more running in this week.
How do you measure your progress? Scales, photos, measurements or just how you feel in clothes?
