Hello everyone! If you recall from last week, I talked about how I was going to start this fitness series to keep me accountable on my daily diet and workout routines. If you missed my first post, you can check it out here.
This week did not go as planned. I’ve been sick with this crud that doesn’t want to leave me and that threw off my workout plans. I did workout yesterday and plan to today so please don’t judge me based on my lack of performance this week. We will see how it goes next week. I did however meet my goal to eat something green every day! That’s something, right?
Ryan and I love to watch The Biggest Loser. It is so motivating to me to see these 300 pound people running on a treadmill, doing the stair climb and throwing around a weighted ball. When I watch them do it, I tell myself “Logan, you have NO excuse. If this guy can do it, why aren’t you?” This year they are tackling childhood obesity. It warms my heart to see them really getting the word out about how bad obesity has plagued American children. Although I am not a parent yet, I do want my children to be healthy one day and live a healthy lifestyle. I can’t help them do that if I’m not setting the example.
One of the Biggest Loser’s trainers, Jillian Michaels, has come out with several work-out DVD’s. Thanks to Tarole’s suggestion, I bought the 30-Day Shred! I’m so
scared excited to start this DVD on Monday!
Let’s talk about diet for a minute. I am the chocolate queen. Put anything chocolate in front of me and I will not even think twice before I dive in. It’s a weakness. Do I plan on giving it up? NO! Why? because you can eat chocolate, sugar, pizza, Mexican food, Chinese food, etc. as long as it is in moderation. In fact, did you know it is good to eat a bad meal every week? It throws off your body. If you eat healthy food all the time, your body starts to get used to it and that healthy food becomes the norm. If you eat a bad meal, it throws off your body and makes it work over time to process what you ate, which makes your metabolism go into overdrive. You’re welcome. 🙂
Here are the workout(s) I completed this week:
Thursday: 15 minutes on the elliptical, walked .6 miles, 50 crunches, 15 push-ups
|Taken with my iphone while working out. Please excuse the blurry quality.|
Sad, but better than nothing. I’m starting to feel a little better, so I’ll get after it this week!
Goals for this week: Eat more protein, complete 30-Day Shred workouts every day.
Good luck to you this week! Kick your workouts in the hiney! And don’t forget to eat a cookie (again, you’re welcome).
