Stick with it Saturday!!!
I am starting a new weekly series that goes along with one from one of my favorite blogs Sam's Noggin- she is a homeschooling mom of many much like myself. She has been on a weight loss journey for a while and is constantly trying to better herself. I believe part of being a good mate to my husband is to make sure I am healthy and in good shape- this is good for me and my self-esteem as well, I am needing a little motivation to keep up my workouts through the summer (especially since I took 2 months off). Having my husband home and dealing with the summer heat is very un-motivating- but I am back in the saddle and ready to melt some pounds away!! Feel free to join me in trying to be more healthy and exercise regularly- you can make a comment sharing what workouts you have done in the last week if you like, or just check-in to see how I am doing!!
This week I did only my elliptical- I am hoping to venture into some strength training using my workout videos next week- but wanted to start out easy just getting back into the routine.
Monday- 35 min. elliptical + 200 crunches
Tuesday- 35 min. elliptical + 200 crunches
Wednesday- walked around an amusement park all day (does this count??)
Thursday- 35 min. elliptical + 200 crunches
Friday- 35 min. elliptical + 200 crunches
WOW I didn't realize how boring my workouts are!!! I have tried to watch what I eat more this past week as well. I probably tend to over-eat because my skin and bone husband eats a lot and has a super fast metabolism so I always want to eat as much as he does and I just can't do that anymore!! My goal for this next week is:
- to watch my portions and make good food choices
- do 2 exercise videos during the week and 3 days on the elliptical
How did you do on your workouts this week??
