#FitReaders: This week I felt sore and then I felt amazing. I'm really feeling good about the mile but it'll take me another week before I get to my goal of under 10 min. I decided that after that I'll be progressing by 0.100 not 0.250 to make me feel more accomplished faster. I'm really worried about losing this really good feeling because the semester starts next Monday so wish me luck that I keep this up! And good luck to all who are going to school/work while trying to keep fit.
48 min. walk
74 oz of water
Thoughts: Took it easy because everything is sore. Hopefully stretching is going to make a difference. I'm going into my routine again tomorrow no matter what but of course I'll make sure my body can handle everything.
1 mi. walk/jog - 17 min.
Tank Top Arms Workout - 9 min.
62 oz of water
Thoughts: Was really sore yesterday and felt a LOT better today. My left tricep hurts a lot so I took it easy on my arms. I really needed to work on my flexibility because I can't keep my legs straight in the air and move it downwards to work on my abs for the life of me! I changed up my routine and had myself jog instead of run which I think will benefit me in the long run (haha pun not intended).
1 mi. walk/jog - 16 min. 24 sec.
Butt and Thigh Workout - 11 min.
Quick Ab Workout - 3 min.
Healthy, Toned back Workout - 7 min.
64 oz of water
Thoughts: I actually did all the workouts without stopping the video! It's a miracle. I felt really good today although I think I could have exercised a little more. I'm glad I decided to jog instead of run. Now I just need to better my mile time.
1 mi. walk/jog/run - 15 min. 24 sec.
Toned, Lean Arms Workout - 20 min.
58 oz of water
Thoughts: I think I enjoy the longer workouts except abs. I can only stand those for so long. It hurts the most after seconds. I did so well today and the Arms workout went really well compared to the first time I did it. I got to do more exercises though. I feel like I'm not doing enough even though I've been impressed by how consistent I've been with working out.
1 mi. walk/jog/run - 15 min. 2 sec.
40 oz of water
Thoughts: I felt good with my mile. I was super tired so that's why maybe the video workout didn't make me sore at all although it did make me very sweaty... I did everything low intensity but I think the amount of cardio outweighed the strength portion which is what I wanted to focus on. Need to do another leg/thigh day in order to feel I did something.
1 mi. walk/jog/run - 14 min 45 sec.
Strength, HIIT, and Pilates Workout - 50 min.
62 oz of water
Thoughts: Just too much for the video at one time. At one point I was going to stop but kept going and got some advice from my brother for chest/arm exercises I can do with his bar on his door. I think I'll try that out more because it seriously hurts after a while and I really want to be able to do one pull up. I now know that I can't just jog the whole mile. I jogged a good 5 min. before I I realized I had to run if I was going to get under 15 min. I'm not going to like running most of the time but I'm going to have to do it.
