Last week was a really good fitness week. I would have liked to have skated more though but I can definitely see and feel an improvement. My biggest downfall was eating 500g of Pistachio nuts in a day. Could be worse.
- Do Wii Fit Plus at least once I actually did Wii Fit Plus four times for at least half an hour.
- Put skates on four days I put them on five days.
- Skate outside at least once I skated inside twice and once outside. I wanted to skate more but can't skate in the wet.
- Do 50 squats, 50 crunches, 50 jumping jacks, 10 burpees and 10 knee push ups every day Done.
- Minimum 1.5L water every day I didn't drink enough everyday and woke up a few days dehydrated.
- At least three shakes I had three shakes on Monday alone. Loving my shakes!
- At least one Ease into 5k work outs Done. Really should have done three to make it one week but I didn't.
- One workout video this week I did Jillian's 30 Day Shred. She's a bitch.
The Wii Fit Plus definitely had a work out last week. I did a lot of ten minute boxing, half hour cycling, and muscle moves. It's so much fun and I can see myself improving each time. I love seeing progress, it's very motivating.
I have to do a blog post on what we're learning in the rec league, I'm learning so much. I am loving it still. I can't see a time when I don't love it. I'm so amazed at how much I love learning skating techniques. Anything else I would have been frustrated and given up, but with roller derby I become even more determined to get the technique and want to skate more.

The squats, burpees, jumping jacks, knee push ups and crunches are getting easier. In fact I'm going to add in ten jack knife workouts. I feel so much better after it and during it I push myself to do them as fast as possible. It's hard but getting easier which is my motivation.
I only failed one this week which was drinking water. A couple of times this week I've felt sick and I think it's from being dehydrated. Also caffeine isn't agreeing with me so coffee and coke is out of the picture. It's good as it means I'm not tempted.
Running is hard. Not only physically but also time wise. It's easy exercising at home, I can stop and help out if need be. Exercising outside running is difficult as I can't help out at home. The mister needs sleep so early mornings are out. Night time is out too as the mister works. During the day I could depending on how the kids are, what else we have to do and the weather. If it's too hot I'll have a bad experience and not want to continue. As it gets colder during the day I'm more inclined to go out running. I hope it gets colder quickly!
Jillian is a bitch. Her 30 Day Shred
is tough! I did week one and was a mess afterwards. I'll be doing it as many times as I can next week. I'll try to throw in Bob's Boot Camp
too as I enjoy that one. Crazy as it sounds I'm looking forward to them kicking my ass again, well the feeling afterwards anyway.
I'm keeping the goals similar to last weeks. Simple and easy. Of course I plan on doing more as well but these are the basics.
- Do Wii Fit Plus at least twice
- Put skates on four days
- Skate outside at least once
- Do 50 squats, 50 crunches, 50 jumping jacks, 10 burps, 10 jack knives and 10 knee push ups every day
- Minimum 1.5L water every day
- At least one Ease into 5k work outs
- Two workout videos this week
