A New Week New Goals

So, this week starts my 3rd week of trying to be more active. Whooooooo!!!! I’ve made it through 2 weeks. 

This week is Week 3 of Phase 1 of Metabolic Aftershock. This is the last week of the first Phase and then I move onto Phase 2!!!! Yeah!!! I’m excited to see what Phase 2 brings but also a bit nervous as Phase 1 workouts are continuing to kick my butt. So I can just imagine what Phase 2 will bring. 

This mornings workout kicked my butt, but I also know I was pushing harder than I had the week before. So I guess it’s working. The motto is, “Work Hard Rest Hard” and we’ll I’m doing both. 

Today also started a challenge group I’ve joined. They are doing Cize which I love. Who doesn’t love to dance around their living room for 30 minutes and look a complete fool?  I am not doing the Cize workouts 5x/week because I’m going to continue with Aftershock, but I will be adding it in on the days when I’m off from Aftershock, and hey with this plan Mother Nature can’t screw it up. 

This week’s goals are

  • Complete Week 3 of Phase 1 Metabolic Aftershock
  • 10 minutes of treadmill training at current speed M-F
  • Eat well balanced meals
  • Drink at least 64oz of water a day
  • Be positive even if I have a slight hiccup

The workout schedule for this week is

  • Monday: P1W3WO1 10 minutes treadmill ✔️
  • Tuesday: 10 minutes treadmill, Cize Crazy 8’s
  • Wednesday: P1W3WO2 10 minutes treadmill
  • Thursday: 10 minutes treadmill, Coze Crazy 8’s
  • Friday: P1W3WO3 10 minutes treadmill
  • Saturday: Building a playground w/ Roc Solid Foundation
  • Sunday: Have fun

There’s my goals and schedule for the week. Here’s to keeping on track.

Getting Back Into It

I’ve been crazy busy and massively slacking in the blogging. But, I’ve decided that it’s something I need to make time for since I really enjoy it. 

I’ve been super diligent about tracking my food using MyFitnessPal, if you use it feel free to add me ARosa1980. I love having friends for encouragement and accountability. 

I’ve tracked everything I’ve eaten for 2 weeks now and have lost 7 pounds. Okay, I really haven’t lost 7 pounds because I’m not looking to find them ever again so let’s say I’ve destroyed 7 pounds over the last 2 weeks. I haven’t added any exercise into the mix this has just been through watching what I eat and recording what I’m eating. I’ve even had a couple of days where I ate more than I should have and not made the best choices. However, over 2 weeks I’ve made for the most part healthy food choices and it’s shown. 

I really wanted to get back into the tracking and clean healthy eating before I added an exercise regimen in. One thing at a time. Well tomorrow I’m starting to add the exercise back in. I’m doing a 9 week program that is based on my metabolism. It’s only 15 minutes a day 3 times a week. There are no designated rest periods as the way it works is to push yourself as hard as you can until you can’t go anymore than rest until you can go. I’m going to give it a whirl. I mean I can find 15 minutes in my day to do a little physical activity. So, I’m going to give it a whirl and see how it goes. 

Along with tracking all my food with MyFitnessPal I’ve been going to town again on YouFood. It’s kind of like Instagram but for food. It works great for the times when I can’t immediately log my food as I’ve got a picture of what I’ve eaten. Plus, I get to see all sorts of deliciousness that other people are eating and pick up some new recipes. If you’re on YouFood or join follow me at AbbyR. I’d love to see what you are eating and cooking. You also can post your exercise which is always fun to see what others are doing and perhaps learn about a new workout/exercise. 

So yeah, 2 weeks of tracking and sticking with it and I’ve had results on the scale. I just need to remember that even if I don’t always see results on the scale it doesn’t mean results aren’t happening. Unfortunately, I too often forget that and get discouraged. There is more to being healthy than the number on the scale. 

Sorry I’ve been MIA but I’m back!!!!

May, is starting a new outlook on things. 

Plan Ahead

  Here it is my meal plan for the month. Each number goes with a meal idea. Not strict as this is what I’m eating but this is the plan and allows me to go out with friends and still stick to the plan. 

I’m ready. I’ve got my omelette all planned out for tomorrow morning’s breakfast, along with my sandwich, and burger for dinner. 

I have a plan now let’s hope I can stick with it.
