10 Pounds

 

My goal this month is to be down 10 pounds.

Last month I got myself into a good workout routine. Now that I have started that my next plan is to started a good diet and to pick up the routine so that it will help me start to lose weight and build muscle.

For the month of June, I am going to try the advance 30-day challenge. I am hoping that I can complete this and with a balance, diet loses the 10 pounds.

I will do weight ins weekly to let you know how the challenge is going. Wish me luck because I am going to need it.
To be honest I have never been able to complete a weight loss. I have gotten close to the goal weight and then end up failing. As I will be having to check in, I am hoping this will keep me going as sometimes I need a little push and this blog will be it.

Let’s go 10 lbs, you can get lost!!!

My Fitness Challenge

 

As the month comes to an end I am almost finished with my 30-day fitness challenge. The highlights from this challenge for me is that my stamina is a lot longer. I can now last the reps that are required and feel like I can do a few more. I am also not finding it so hard to get started and that my body wants the workout.

During this past couple of weeks, the Easy 30 Day Challenge wasn’t enough so I also added in a beginner 8 pose yoga routine. This routine was a combination of the child’s pose, downward- facing dog pose, cobra pose, warrior pose 1 & 2, cow pose, Garland pose and the bridge pose. Doing these two routines together really helps with building my strength and balance. I also added a weighted ball to my routine just to give some resistance.

I am going to keep this routine up until the end of the month and move on to the next challenge level. With the next level, I am hoping that I can start losing some weight and building some muscle mass. I knew that wouldn’t come with my first month, as I really just want to build a stamina and be able to get through a full month of working out and enjoying it. now that I have almost accomplished that I can move on and set a new goal.

Long Weekend Fun!

Can working-out while away be a difficult?

This weekend is Victoria Day long weekend and my family and I will be heading to our home away from home. Our little weekend get away place.  Or as most of you would call it our summer trailer.

Most summers I just try to relax and enjoy myself while I am away. This summer I am making it my goal to stay active!

Being at the trailer should really be the easiest place for me to stay active. My family and I are outside most days and usually play down by the water.

My goal this summer will be to go for a walk every morning. A little hike around the park to see whats going on. I am also going to plan to swim every day as well. They say swimming is one of the best exercise and I am going to use that to my advantage. Plus it will keep me cool on those hot day. I may even play a little soccer with my boy to keep the heart rate up. They love to have fun and why not stay fit while doing it!

What kids of tips do you have for staying fit and active while away?

I can tell you that there will be no yoga on the field as I am a little shy to be doing it in public yet. Maybe one day i can get to it.

Happy Victoria Long weekend to my fellow Canadian friends!

Enjoy!!
