Good morning! First, a HUGE congrats to my hubby who completed his first official half marathon yesterday. He was under two hours, but we are waiting on the official time. Check out his medal:
While he was running, our friend J and I walked. Yesterday was 2 miles on my schedule. Thankfully my leg felt much better than Tuesday. WOOHOO!!! It was a beautiful morning to talk and walk! J and I have been friends for over 20 years (he introduced hubby and I), so we always have stuff to talk about.
Hats off to anyone who completes a half marathon or marathon. I sometimes don’t drive that many miles in a day.
Time to update you on my Best Body Bootcamp Round 4 week 5 progress. This was a pretty good week, but only included one morning workout.
* Monday – 60 squats, plank, and a 20 minute arm workout
* Tuesday – 63 squats, plank, and a 1.75 mile walk on the treadmill
* Wednesday – SPINNING!!! No squats or plank.
* Thursday – 66 squats, plank, rest other than that (super sore from spinning)
* Friday – 69 squats, plank, rest other than that (still sore from spinning)
* Saturday – 72 squats, plank, 2 mile walk
* Sunday – will either be yoga or elliptical/arms, no squats or plank
That’s 330 squats this week. WHEW! I can definitely feel it in my legs. I am trying to keep a consistent pace and watch my form when doing these. My planks seem to be getting worse. I wasn’t even able to do a 60 second plank this week. Luckily I have the entire year to meet my 2:30 plank goal. Looks like I might need it.
My personal goals were (1) plank/squats and (2) log my food. I successfully completed these five days this week. My personal goals for this next week are (1) drink 48 oz water and (2) health coach studying at least 15 minutes. I have put off all my studying until today and I don’t want that to happen next week.
I only worked out one weekday morning. I just don’t like working out in the mornings for some reason. Conflicted on what to do about this.
Before I go, I haven’t shared any of my favorite tweets in a while.
the best nutrition plan is the one you can own, love, live with, stay on & respond to. You dont find it, you create it.

Getting what you want requires letting go of what you don't want. Focus 100% on the direction in which you want to go & keep the faith!

If you've had a slip up, don’t beat yourself up over it. If you have something to celebrate, give yourself a pat on the back!

Occasionally cheating on your diet can be good for your waistline, as long as you're smart with your splurges.
