This weekend was a bust. Granted, I did better on steps than I have any other weekends, but I still only managed about 2500-3000/day. And I sucked on water consumption too. But in my defense, I ate something Friday night that didn't agree with me. Thought I was ok on Saturday, until I ate and drank. WRONG! Rinse and repeat on Sunday. I drank a Dr. Pepper and wow. Not a good thing. So, I spent most of those two days in bed, or just relaxing, and not drinking. Every time I drank, it was back to the bathroom.
I did make my 5000 steps M-F though, and I'm proud of that. This week's goal is to get the 5000 steps in before leaving work at 6. Plus tomorrow morning, I'm meeting a friend at the gym. I'm hoping for a mile on the treadmill. It has been months, so I'm not expecting to do much more than that, but at least it will be a start - a set distance at a set speed. Plus I love an incline, so that works me harder too. Hoping to make it a daily thing - in addition to other working out.
I found some great kettlebell workouts on Youtube.
I am hoping to try the arm/shoulder one sometime this week with my 5lb kettlebell. Since the next option up is 10lbs, I think I'll stick with the 5 for everything but kettlebell swings (2-handed), and maybe I'll go up to 10 on the squats too. But my arms are puny. Not in size - they are HUGE - but in strength. I really need to work on that. I'm still waiting for BeachBody's Cize video to come out. I really think I'll like it, and I want to get it!
Well, that's my story! What's yours?
