Oh yes, we have been busy!
Weight Loss Weekly is a weekly collaboration between me and two other bloggers who are trying to lose weight. Join us as we discuss tips and strategies, as well as our successes and failures on our weight loss journeys.
How is it a whole week has gone by without posting? School is now out for my oldest which means full time mom duties are in full swing. We also had a great time camping this weekend (of which I'll share the food adventures of later this week) so my summer has already begun and it has been busy!
Last week, I set a goal to walk for 20 minutes 4 times during the week and to do 10 sit ups, 10 reverse sit ups and 10 fakey push-ups on the days I walked. I am happy to report that I did accomplish my walking goal and ALMOST accomplished my sit-up/push-up goal. However, the last 20 minutes of walking I did yesterday at the campsite and I just plain forgot about the push-ups and sit ups. I remember my father doing a couple chin-ups every time he would take us to the park. I think that I need to get into that habit as well. Especially with summer here, entertaining the boys is going to be my big excuse for not working out, so if I can eke out a few fakey push-ups at the park each time we go, my arms are going to be in great shape!
My goal for this week is primarily the same, four 20 minute walks with 10 fakey push-ups on the days I walk. However, thanks to Bernie from Yo-yo No More, I found a site where you can work on increasing your core strength to do 200 push-ups in six weeks. Since having kids my core is extremely weak so this week I am going to start on this program. I'm not looking for a six-pack or anything, just increased strength to my core and protection for my back. I am a little worried about muscle soreness, but I'll let you know next week how it goes.
Let's see how the other ladies did on their goals!
The second week of my exercise plan! Ugh, and it was so much harder for me to stay motivated this week..." keep reading at www.ThatExtra20Pounds.blogspot.com
Another week of daily exercise, can you believe it? I'm amazed. I even did push ups! Despite the crazy week, I managed to exercise every day yet again...." read more at Yoyonomore.
