Well last week was the first week of an improved fitness schedule and except one class that was missed due to scheduling issues with kids sports I stuck to my plan almost perfectly. I added a muscle class which I totally underestimated until my legs were hating me two days later. Ok, I’ll go back to that one this week for sure. I added an on demand yoga class which I’m on the fence about. I am not only not good at this yoga stuff but I don’t exactly bend like Barbie the instructor does. I realize this is the first time I’ve done yoga so I’m going to give it a month or two to grow on me. I know that stretching and flexibility takes time and practice and only doing it once per week needs a bit more leeway than just one time. I only made it 18 /25 minutes. When the video got stuck I quit but felt like I had done enough for the night to know I need to come back and do it again. I ran as scheduled except traded my long run day on Saturday to Sunday. Necessary since we spent the entire day at a wrestling match. When I say ALL day I mean ALL Day and if we wanted to eat this week, food shopping was higher on the priority list. Truth be told..if I wanted good food to pack for everyone and leave for the kids at home on Saturday shopping was a priority. Good trade in my mind. So my week worked out like this:
SUN: OFF | MON: RUN 3 | TUES: SPIN | WED: RUN 3 (DM) | THURS: MUSCLE CLASS
FRI: RUN 30 min on Eliptical, Yoga 18 min | SAT: OFF
I’m not achieving regular two fer’s like I have scheduled but one in the week is better than zero. This week if I match last I’ll say it’s successful. I hope to get a lap swim in and at least one more double in there. So this week I’m aiming for:
SUN: Run 5 (DM) CHECK! | MON: RUN 3 | TUES: SPIN, Swim 10 laps | WED: RUN 3 | THURS: MUSCLE CLASS |FRI: RUN 3, Yoga | SAT: OFF
Now in addition to that I am aiming to add in a smoothie 3x – 4x this week for breakfast, no pm snacking, more water less coffee, more protein shakes after mid day runs and smaller meal portions with more day snacking. I have gotten away from actually thinking about how much I eat at a meal so this is just a matter of getting back on track.
So there are is weekly fitness goals for this week. Let’s see how I do.
