Fit Friday!

I honestly didn't plan on this being my only post this week. Time got away from me! I have another craft fair tomorrow, so I spent most of Monday baking. Tuesday I cleaned the house, since Wednesday we had a friend visiting from out of town. So I took the day off Wednesday and did even more baking yesterday. Exciting, right? And somehow I managed to fit in some working out!


So how did I do this week? I started off really strong, working out everyday from last Friday through Tuesday. I did Pilates, and Kickboxing. As well as, and now I can't remember who had posted this on her blog, and I so wanted to link to her so if you didn't see it before, you too could go and read about it and start doing it now, anyway, I started doing the Plank, the Superman, and the V for my abs. Ok, that was a long sentence. So, if you were the wonderful person who posted that, PLEASE let me know so I can give you some props! yo.
I really think I only got in 2 days of no diet soda. I was really trying to get in 3, but got lost somehow.
The whole leave off a food "accessory" worked really well. And was such an easy way to skip some needless calories. I didn't feel deprived either. It was funny though, we buy the Smart Balance butter. And I always felt pretty good about using it on toast, or a crumpet. Then I saw there are 7 GRAMS of FAT in 1 tbsp. Yeah, NO!
I wish I had kept up the exercise through the rest of the week.
So, goals for this next week.

* 3 days, NO SODA, I will do it this time!
* Space my workouts better, 5 days of working out in a row may have burned me out...
* Add some intensity to 2 days.

Really, that is all I can come up with at the moment!
What are your goals for this week??

Hey, great job - sounds like you did really great on the exercise!

I think the link you are looking for is here:

Mom's Toolbox

I bookmarked her, too, as soon as I saw those exercises. :)

Good job on your successes for the week! I usually start out strong as well and fizzle at the end of the week. This week, I just fizzled the whole time! I will do better, though, I really will!

That happens to me too when I start "too strong". But, hey, you got a lot of exercise in & that is what counts. Great job.

Good job! Cut yourself some slack on starting strong with the workouts. Think of it this way, if you aim for 3 days and get it in M, T, W - you're done for the week and anything after that is bonus. However, for endurance sake, it is better to space them out. Job well done in my opinion!

I think you did great as well, especially since you had such a busy week. Hang in there with the soda thing, you can do it!

You did great on the exercise. Sometimes it's hard, but you can hang in there. Keep up the good work!

You are doing awesome! I am way impressed.

That's my buddy Amy. I think I might make her give me some private lessons tomorrow :)
