12 Week Challenge~ Week 5

Sunday, February 2, 2014

This week was a struggle for me, both as far as workout and diet go. Juston was out of town a few days and I wasn't able to work out nearly as much as I have been or wanted to and I have already noticed a drop in my energy level and just overall feeling of wellness. I also ate like a beast so there's that. I think my biggest problem was my lack of Sunday planning for the week ahead. I didn't plan my meals or my workouts in advance and it really came back to bite me in the rear. But, week 6 is a new week and I've already got my plans made for the week in an attempt to undue some of the damage I did this past week. I'm also going to start linking my exercises to Youtube videos of the exercise for anyone who is unsure how to translate some of my made-up names or shorthand. If you're like me, I learn more from watching than reading anyway, so if you're following along and you're lost on how to perform a certain move, you can click on it and find a video link example.
Here were my workouts from this past week:

Day 1~Legs and Abs

Day 2~ Cardio
20 minutes elliptical

Day 3~ Cardio
20 minutes elliptical

Day 4~ Chest and Triceps
Pushups NW 3x12

Day 5~ Cardio
20 minute Run

Day 6~ Shoulders, Back and Biceps
Lat Pulldown

Swing Curls
Heavy Quarter Raise
Superman Holds

I only hit two out of my four weekly goals this week, which is kind of a downer, but like I said, it was a result of poor planning on my part. So now its on to a new week, new goals and making better choices. Bring it on week 6!

  1. Isn't it crazy how much lack of planning effects things? It has taken me 26 years to learn that and somedays I still forget ha! I feel your pain. I started doing monthly menu planning and that has helped me stay on a schedule. I kept a few "free" days to account for spontaneous pizza nights or when family cooks for us. Good luck with week 6-you got this!
