#FitReaders: January 30th 2015 Check-In

#FitReaders: I didn't do so well last week but I killed it most of this week. I made sure to add 0.100 mi. every time I ran/walked this week. It was tough because it was cold this week. Also, I keep on stopping basically on Saturdays and that effects a few days after that. I don't know how not to do that.

Fri/Jan. 23rd:
1.2 mi. walk/jog/run - 19 min. 48 sec.
Upper Back, Arms, and Chest Workout - 23 min.
Intense Abs and Cardio Workout - 12 min.
Restorative Yoga Pilates Workout - 13 min.
60 oz of water
Thoughts: I felt the regret of not working out regularly really quickly into my run. The ab workout did nothing for me. I think I'll just stick to Blogilates for ab exercises because I always feel something with her.

Sat/Jan. 24th:

1.3 mi. walk/jog/run - 20 min. 7 sec.
Cardio and Total Body Toning Boot Camp - 14 min.
Fluid Yoga Stretches for Flexibility and Strength - 15 min.
36 oz of water
Thoughts: I'm doing too much cardio and not enough strength training. I need to keep that in mind later this week.

Sun/Jan. 25th:

1.4 mi. walk/jog/run - 22 min. 4 sec.
Express Calorie Blaster - 10 min.
Tank Top Arms Workout - 25 min.
44 oz of water
Thoughts: It was cold outside so I could feel the cold in my throat as I ran. It wasn't very fun but I'm keeping great time. It looks like I'll be going for 2 miles by the end of January. I realized that I need to up my weights. I've just been using 5 lbs weights which was fine before but it doesn't do anything for me now. I can also do pulses if I feel like the workout is too easy.

Mon/Jan. 26th:

1.5 mi. walk/run - 20 min. 58 sec.
HIIT Cardio Sweatfest - 30 min.
Better Posture Workout - 17 min.
34 oz of water
Thoughts: I felt fantastic today! It was still cold out but not as bad as yesterday. I blasted through my workouts. Although, I wonder if I'll feel sore tomorrow at all. I feel like soreness validates my efforts. I've noticed I haven't been drinking that much water which I want to change soon.

1.6 walk/run - 23 min. 13 sec.
Upper Body Split Workout - 42 min.
EXTREME Abs Workout - 12 min.
58 oz of water
Thoughts: It was cold again but I felt good running. The Ab workout was hell. I don't know how people have defined abs. It feels like I'm killing my insides.

Wed. Jan. 28th:

10 min. walk
36 oz of water
Thoughts: I'm feeling a pattern. I don't do anything on Wednesdays and then it goes in the next few days. It's annoying.

Thur. Jan. 28th:

15 min. walk
40 oz of water
Thoughts: Again nothing much but I do have class all day.

How did you do this week?


  1. Cheers to you for doing a wonderful job this week! You're making a great effort to fitting in a variety of exercises into your busy schedule! I'll have to check out some of those videos. :)

    1. Yeah, I finally found out that I should have a routine and rest day. I'm sure February is going to be an even better month than this one (:

  2. Great week of exercise. Way to go. Especially with that super cold weather.

    1. Well it was cold for me.. Around 50 degrees haha (: But I'm used to it being really warm.

  3. Wow! Your workouts look awesome!

  4. Looks like you are getting in a lot of workouts and exercise on the days that work for you and then still getting in some when you have class. Good for you! Keep up the great work. :)

    1. Thank you! I've been pretty good at keeping up with my workouts but I've set up a routine now so I think I'll do even better and not kick myself for having a rest day.

  5. Wow...great week! I need to add strength-training to my workout regiment. Lately all I've been doing is walking. I also need to get back to yoga - I'm so bad at remembering to stretch, so at least with the yoga, I feel like I get that in! I'm going to have to check out the links you gave for your workouts - thanks for sharing!

    1. I've been having to stretch more and more lately because I know if I don't my soreness will last longer. Yoga is daunting for me. I hear it's tough.

  6. Good week :)

    I always drink too little :/

  7. You did great this week! I did horrible. Hopefully next week I will get back into being more physical. :)

    1. That's okay. I did horrible last week. I'm sure you'll find a balance (:

  8. Great job this week and I love your new image for the post! I need to drink more water but at work I get so busy I forget to stop for a drink. I really need to start that tank top arms workout (that's one of my problem areas). Keep up the great work and have a nice week!

    1. Thanks! I got it from this tumblr site. Arthlete I believe.
      Arms, abs, and back are areas I need to work on. I'm always working on my legs mostly but I need to find a balance.
