It has been a great week filled with great workouts, and I’m beyond thankful for those extra workouts this week. My Best Body Bootcamp workouts kept me active all week long through the Halloween temptations. Plus I was able to go up in weights I use during the workouts Tina created for the bootcamp too!
My goals for this week were:
1. Continue to eat a protein packed breakfast. This was a goal I had last week and wanted to continue. With a bigger healthy breakfast I have so much more energy throughout the day, and I have no desire to snack later on in the day.
2. Drink a butt load of water everyday. I don’t get near the amount of water in my body that I should each day. This has caused me to have some pretty fun headaches during the day, especially after working out. Of course, I’m sure that non-fat latte from Starbucks isn’t helping either, but that is not something I’m ready to give up yet. Keeping with this goal this whole week has caused those oh-so-fun headaches to go away completely!!
As for this upcoming week…I’m beyond excited!!! Tina sent out our Best Body Bootcamp workouts for next week the other day, and they look awesome!! She is using ladders for one set of workouts, and I couldn’t be happier. Ladders and pyramids are my favorite types of workouts to do. They really help you push yourself even farther. For those of you who do not know what “ladders” are, they are when you have an exercise and do 6 reps, 7 reps, 8 reps, and so on until you reach 10-12 reps. You are doing these for the same exercise all at once. Talk about a workout huh! Just think of all those happy endorphins you will be creating while doing that workout.
It is time for me to come up with new goals for this next week, and here is what I’ve come up with:
1. Continue eating a protein packed breakfast. I know it seems odd to continue this goal for 3 weeks in a row, but I have to. If I don’t, I know I will fall off the “band wagon” the first busy morning I have, and then it will all go downhill from their. Therefore, I’m sticking with this one for awhile.
2. Spend 20 minutes a day stretching or doing yoga. I’m now in that wonderful age group where you really need to stretch or you will wake up in the morning moaning about your muscles aching. This wonderful soreness is due to the fact that I don’t stretch anywhere near the amount I should. The only time I actually get a good stretch in is if I’m teaching a class. Then, I get a wonderful full body stretch in. However, after my classes I head over to the weight room to workout more, and don’t stretch enough after that workout. Therefore, it is time for me to make this a goal, and save my body in the process. The last thing I need is an injury.
So, do you have any new goals for yourself this week or month? If so, what are they?
