Week Five: Still Holding On

Week Six: Healthy Living

We are officially in the second week of school and normal routines are almost back (thank goodness!). My regular fitness routine is slowly returning to normal, with help from my calendar on the fridge – desperate times call for desperate measures! I have started to see a physiotherapist to help with my stretching which has helped a lot with some of the pain I have been experiencing. I have always had lower back pain and this has really helped to improve my range of motion and compression like feeling I have been having. Most of the pain is due to my poor posture and abdominal weight so my fitness goals couldn’t have come at a better time!

So how did I do?

Here is week four:

  • 1-2 pound weight loss.  Although to be fair this was the weight I gained back from my Dad’s delicious cooking!
  • Weight training five times this week.
  • Yoga three times this week.
  • Daily squat, lunge, push up and crunch challenge.
  • 11,000 steps a day. Every day but Friday! I was so close this time!
  • Two 3km walks.
  • One 4km walk  And I chose the hottest day to do so, I was looking lovely in my sweaty clothes.

Week Five Goals:

  • 1 to 2 pound weight loss.
  • Weight training four times.
  • Yoga twice this week.
  • Daily squat, lunge, push up and crunch challenge.
  • 11,000 steps a day.
  • Two 3km walks.
  • One 4km walk.

Week five marks one week closer to my walk for Sick Kids coming up on September 26th. For more information on my walk (or if you would like to donate to this great cause) please check out my post on The Great Camp Adventure Walk.

Here is to good things in week five! Have a great week and I will see you here next week.
