Well what a week,
Thursday saw us going for a hike, first part was up, paths and steps but what a view, Manawatu Gorge had a MASSIVE slip, and they have now done a loop track, so the children and I went with other homeschoolers and did this. I can now say yes I am a lot fitter but I still don’t like hills. I struggled at the start, but the rest was easy. Oh the hike was nearly 2 hours. We would like to eventually do the full gorge walk.. will be good.
There were great views. See photos.
So we have been upping the boxing of late, am loving it I would suggest anybody that goes to the gym find a boxing class..
I volunteer on a couple of committees, Sunday just been we were at a family day, but on Friday I spent a lot of time on my feet making 100 mini gingerbread to put on our stall.. So Friday night I was shattered.
I have been working out hard this week last week with PT here, So next week will prove a few challenges for me but I will take each one as it comes.
Well had dance class tonight we learning new routine, hip hop this time was a lot of fun.
This morning I was feeling fat, I never tried my black trousers at the fist of this month so I tried again. Well I put them on and hardly had to suck my tummy in to do them up. Was a great achievement so I am going to keep trying to be able to wear them out and about. So I now have revisited and spruced up my goal.
My food eating has not been that great and I have to start eating a variety of food I getting stuck into same routine and not that good of a one. Variety is spice of life they say.
My routine at gym today was, boxing, am really enjoying it worked out with another lady today, we held the bag for each other, ended up 500 punches doing about 4 or 5 different kinds of punches, and did 200 kicks am getting a lot fitter for it but we stand still no bouncing around.
This week also the reintroduction of the 20 minute challenge. Oh dear I was 15cal short on the bike.. I you do various things like scissor jumps with weight, step ups, crunches, push ups etc, and then you do 100cals on the bike.. 20min came and went.. I hope to keep it part of my routine as we have not done it for a while and I did do it near the 19min mark. I will keep trying, I putting it down to end of the day, tired, not fuelling myself right.
Please folk make sure you fuel your body for your work outs. I have been slack with food and it has been affecting my work outs. I cannot stress enough about fuelling your body correctly to get the most out of your work outs.
Goals this year are:
- To wear my black trousers in June I have a family gathering to go to.
- Chest press 50kg
I am sure I will find other goals as I go along.
Well that was the week that was. Keep it simple folks and see you next week. p.s follow me on twitter, I am going to start writing what I am doing at the gym. I am hoping this will keep me going if
I am logging.. 🙂
