Recap Week 10/13-10/20/2017

It’s that time of the week where I disclose just how successful or unsuccessful I was in completing my goals.  This week definitely presented some challenges and wore me out to a new level of tired.  I actually believe I’m learning to function on less and less sleep.  I have always been an 8 hour a night sleeper until now.  I’ve been able to get up and complete workouts with 6 hours of rest a night.  I’d definitely prefer the 8 hours, but I’ll take what I can get!

So, here goes.  I started the 15 day burpee challenge as mentioned in my weekly recap last week.  I have stuck with it every single day and am through day 8 as of yesterday.  There were days when I didn’t want to do the burpees, but I just reminded myself that I made a commitment to myself and to the handful of people that read this blog.  I didn’t want to let anyone down, including myself.  The first few days I reduced the rest time by 5 seconds and I quickly learned that I needed to slow that pace down.  So, for the last two days I’ve decreased my rest time by just 3 seconds.  As the challenge has gone on, my legs have started burning a little more and I’m starting to feel some of the muscles in my stomach I haven’t felt since before Hailey! In other words, this is definitely a rewarding challenge.

Break down for the rest of the week in regards to activity: Saturday toured the Fallingwater house and walked the grounds around the home. Sunday, rest. Monday treadmill run. Tuesday weight training. Wednesday and Thursday rest. Friday treadmill run.

I also signed up for a virtual quidditch tournament with Hogwarts Running Club (HRC) and will be running for a wonderful organization called Back on My Feet. This challenge will start November 6th and run for two weeks.  I joined HRC a while back and found it to be incredibly supportive in keeping me motivated. Here is a link to their Facebook page. The quidditch tournament is full, but they have a ton of virtual races and currently you can sign up for the all of the races for this year with the time turner challenge!

Overall, I am happy with my fitness this week.  This coming week I would like to increase to 5 days out of the week doing a physical activity for a minimum of 30 minutes.  I will also complete the burped challenge at the end of this week! I am also going to limit my sweets to one day this week. I haven’t been able to cut the sugar since pregnancy and I just stopped breastfeeding, so I have zero excuses now!

Until next time, be confident, be fit, be you!
