Exercise Challenge


Things have been crazy busy since my last post. I’ve been fairly active on my FB page and Pinterest, but I need to get better at logging in on here regularly!

What have I been up to? Well, I am finally over a severe head cold that I have battled for two weeks. What a relief because I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired and coughing my brains out! Plus, it was interfering with my exercise program and totally screwed up my desire to eat healthy. I’ve put on a few pounds in a short amount of time, so its time to start counting calories again. I’ve decided to drop my daily intake down by 300 calories to see if that helps jump start the fat loss. As luck would have it, I received an email about a weight loss challenge. It was a sign! So, I started it today!

I am doing the Everyday Health 8 Week Slim Down Challenge. The routines start off as daily 30 minute workouts – cardio, yoga/Pilates, and their workout videos. As you progress, more time and intensity is added to the workouts. Since I also work with a trainer 2-3 times per week, I will be switching up this schedule to fit into my gym routine. This will probably a little trickier as the challenge progresses, but I will make it work somehow.

I did Week 1’s video today and loved it. It’s a full body workout involving minimal equipment, which is always nice. Tonight at the gym, I will be working chest, triceps, shoulders, and core and will finish up with some intervals on the elliptical. Can’t wait!!
