Bootcamp Week 1 Recap/Week 2 Planning

Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY! Hope you had a great weekend. Do anything exciting or fun? Any races this weekend?

In case you missed my past few posts:

I know I usually share posts on Friday, but I wanted you to see A Monday To Do List by Heather. I always love Heather’s graphics and thought this was a great way to start the week. How many of those will you do today?

The first week of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp is in the books and was a HUGE personal success. Here were my workouts:

  • Monday – Strength Workout A and Cardio (15 minutes Elliptical) at home
  • Tuesday – Walking on Treadmill at Planet Fitness – 40 minutes, a little over 2 miles (longest since surgery)
  • Wednesday – Rest Day
  • Thursday – Yoga & Hoops (75 minutes)
  • Friday – Rest Day
  • Saturday – Strength Workout B and Housework for Cardio
  • Sunday – Biking (20 minutes) and Walking (15 minutes)

This is the most activity I have had since well before surgery and possibly since before my FIRST surgery in November 2012. It is great to be back on track again. I can definitely tell I lost a lot of endurance and strength, but it will take some time and effort to rebuild. I have to keep working at it, not just during the 8 weeks of bootcamp. Something we all need to remember:

Fit for Life

Every two weeks of bootcamp we pick two personal health related goals that we want to focus on. The goal is to meet them at least five days during the week. I successfully met the following and will keep these goals this week.

  • Drink 48 oz water per day
  • Do a 10 minute FitnessGlo stretch video

Drinking water is so important every day, but especially during the summer. Did you know that once you actually feel thirsty you are actually starting to become dehydrated? That’s why it is important to drink water throughout the day. I am loving the FitnessGlo stretch video I found. My goal this week is to do another one. I did the same one all last week because it is the perfect total body stretch.

My tentative schedule for this week is identical to last week’s:

  • Monday – Strength and Cardio (Walking or Elliptical)
  • Tuesday – Cardio (Walking)
  • Wednesday – Rest Day
  • Thursday – Yoga & Hoops
  • Friday – Rest Day
  • Saturday – Strength and Cardio
  • Sunday – Cardio (Walking or Cycling)

It is great for me to map out a tentative schedule, but also know that I may need to switch things around. Thursday is the only day set in stone at this point.

A New Day

Have you planned your workouts for the week? Do you use FitnessGlo or a similar service? What two health goals would you list?

Enjoy your day!

      I seem to always need to make drinking water a goal. Otherwise I tend to forget.

      Thanks! Water on the weekends is often hard for me as well.

  2. No races, but I did run a bridge this weekend, so there was that.

    I do plan my workouts for each week. I have to coordinate runs with Mr PugRunner so this way, we are both on track.
