So this week has been all about multitasking and figuring out how to get a workout done even when I have 2 little kids to take care of and things to do. Next Monday I’ll be back at work (though thankfully only part time the first 3 weeks), and it’s only going to get harder to find time, so I want to keep working on getting in the habit now!
In case you’re in doubt of my multi-tasking skillz, here is visual evidence. 😉
Yes, that’s me pumping while on the elliptical! LOL. It forces me to stabilize my upper body while using the elliptical, which is a workout in itself! It’s a good way to kill 2 birds with one stone in 30 minutes.
As for my goals this month:
- Complete Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred program. – I worked out 6/7 days, and I think I did the Shred on 4 days and the elliptical on 2. I really should be writing this down. But yes, I’m doing pretty well at getting more exercise in whenever possible. I’m averaging 8k+ daily steps this week, which I’m really happy with! Huge improvement over the 3k I was at a month ago.
- Track calories in MFP & stay within my limit. – I’m still doing pretty well with this. On Saturday we had some friends over for drinks and I didn’t track perfectly, but for the most part I’m doing well with logging everything & staying within my limit.
- Drink more water – at least 100 oz per day. – Still working on this! I’m carrying my 24 oz / 750 mL Cambelbak around with me everywhere which is helping a little.
One last thing – here is a great article I came across this week – The 11 Most Destructive Nutrition Lies Ever Told. Check it out!
