I’ve set my fitness goals for the year, and I’ve already started working on them. I’ll be sharing my progress along the way. If you’re a Mom who’s not exercising regularly, maybe I can help give you some motivation so you can join me in becoming a fit Mom in 2019!
We’re about 2/3 of the way through January, and the holidays couldn’t feel any more long ago. Work is busy, and all of the typical Kid activities are in full swing, but I’ve gotten off to a great start towards my fitness goals this year.
Unlike last week, I’ve been able to stick to my schedule the entire week this week.
On Monday, you’ll see I did Pull-ups. It wasn’t actual pull-ups, it negatives. It’s going to take me awhile to get into good enough condition to do even one actual pull-up, so I’m starting at the top, and slowly lowering myself down. I’ll do several reps at a time, and several sets, until my arm and back strength is good enough to do the pull-up motion. I’m also going to be doing other back exercises to help build my strengh in this muscle group.
Last Week’s Results:
Sun- Sprints. Yes, I did Sprints. With my entire family. I took my husband and son with me to the local middle school track, and we all ran the 100m five times, along with a couple light jogs.
Mon- Upper body- push-ups and pull-ups.
Tue- 3 mile run
Thur- Legs. Bench press and incline dumbbell rows. Oops, got my days reversed.
Fri- Upper Body- Lunges (legs) since I did upper body yesterday.
Here it is, this Week’s Schedule:
Mon- Upper body
Tue- Run (2 or 3 miles)
Fri- Upper Body
Just a reminder, the Gasparilla Distance Classic 5k, is coming up in late February. I will be continuing to run in preparation for this, and I’d love for you to come run this race with me! Shoot me a message if you’re thinking about going.
