Yesterday I made the decision to stop being lazy and get back to my “fitness routine”. *clears throat*
I have been thinking about how much I have been slacking the past few months; but that’s all I was doing…thinking about it. I kept telling myself that I don’t have the time or I needed to study, etc. It was not until yesterday that I made up my mind. I received a gentle nudge (more like violent shove down 100 flight of stairs ending in a face plant on hot coals) from a very very close family member! She helped me say “okay- enough is enough!”
Isn’t it amazing how brutally honest family members can be while showing love & being supportive…. haha
So as I mentioned before I did the 21 day fix, I am not doing that again! While I did have good results I know am not going to follow it to the ‘T’. However I learned some cool work outs that I plan to continue using.
After the 21 day fix, before I entered my slacking stage, I simply worked out 3-5 days a week. Everyday that I worked out consisted of leg work. I rotated ab work every other day, of course depending on if I worked out 3, 4, or 5 days. As for cardio I walked (power walked of course) 45 minutes to an hour. I didn’t track how many miles that I completed; I just tried to keep my heart rate under 140. Also my walking usually consisted of pushing a stroller. If that means anything…
As for eating, I did not pig out and eat junk food all day and I don’t do that now. However I did take into consideration the type of foods I ate! For example I would chose grapes for a snack over chips. I completely cut out fast food, with the exception of salads from McDonalds. I drank water and green tea through the day & drank a soda or two on the weekends only!
These days I just kind of eat & drink whatever and maybe get 1 work out completed each week.
Yes disgraceful, I know!
Well, since I did make up my mind last night it would have only been right to get back on track today. I would have to say I’ve done okay, so far. My breakfast was not the best choice, but I have been chugging water today, no sodas! 🙂
To keep myself accountable I think I am going to keep track of everything again using Myfitnesspal. I absolutely love that app!! At the end of each week I may post my work outs and foods & every two weeks post my progress (no pictures, just data- haha) but I am not sure yet!
I’m sure I can stick to it this time around, I just have to stop making excuses! 🙂
You know any fun work outs,healthy snack options, or just have any suggestions, please feel free to share!
