Weekly Wrap-Up and a Look Ahead

5 May

Wrap Up — get it?!! 😉

A day late, but better late than never!!

I feel much better about things than last week that’s for sure.

Last week’s plan:
Monday – Strength training day + Stretching – Done!
Tuesday – 2.5 miles – Done!
Wednesday – 30 minutes cross training (not sure what I’ll do yet!!) – Done! (well, 24 minutes done!)
Thursday – 2 miles + strength training + 10 second wall sit + 1 set 60 second plank 2 miles, Done! Wall sit and plank Done!

And then, we came up with a *new* fitness challenge — wall sits, planks and upper body
So Thursday became 2 miles + 1 Forward plank/30 sec + 2 side planks/30 sec each +30 sec wall sit +5 pushups + 5 chair dips Done!
Friday – Rest Day + 20 second wall sit + 3 sets / 30 second plan Plank 2F/45 sec + 45 sec wall sit + 8 Pushups + 5 Chair Dips Done!
Saturday – 40 minutes cross training +30 second wall sit + 1 set / 60 second plank Plank 1F/30 sec, 2S/30 sec + 1 min wall sit + 5 Pushups + 8 Chair Dips Done!
Sunday – 3 miles + 40 second wall sit + 3 sets / 30 second planPlank 2F/45 sec + 45 sec Wall Sit + 10 pushups + 8 chair dips Well..not done. Yet. Will definitely get to these today. All of it

Saturday, I spent most of the afternoon and evening clearing out a planting bed – and who knew that hoeing was such an amazing upper body and core workout? I learned on Sunday just really how powerful it is!! Today I am moving MUCH better!! 😉


Before…this is what lazy gets you!!


After….this is what HARD work gets you!

Sunday was also the day to submit my weight for the Diet Bet I’m participating in for the next 4 weeks — and that was a real eye-opener! And not in a good way that’s for sure! So there may be a bit more talking about the “Fork” part of things in coming days!

And now on to this week’s plan!!

Schedule for the Coming Week:
Monday – Strength training day + Stretching + 3 miles I Missed Sunday + Plank 1F/30 sec 2S/30 sec + 1 min wall sit + REST DAY for upper body!! (Though, I need to make up for Sunday so there’s an additional Plank 2F/45 sec + 45 sec Wall Sit + 10 pushups + 8 chair dips – oops!)
Tuesday – 2.5 miles + Plank 2F/45 sec + 80 sec wall sit + 10 Pushups + 8 Chair Dips
Wednesday – 30 minutes cross training + Plank 1F/30 sec 2S/30 sec + Wall Sit REST DAY! + 8 pushups + 8 Chair Dips
Thursday – 2 miles + strength training + Plank REST DAY! + 1 min wall sit + 15 pushups + 8 chair dips
Friday – Rest Day + Plank 1F/60 sec 2S/30 sec + 90 sec wall sit + 5 pushups + 10 chair dips
Saturday – 40 minutes cross training + Plank 2F/60 sec + 75 sec wall sit + Another Rest Day for upper body!
Sunday – 3 miles + Plank 1F/60 sec 2S/30 sec + 105 sec wall sit + 12 pushups + 10 chair dips

    Please come kick my butt! I chickened out on the diet bet as weigh in is right after a long vacation and well I don’t want to stress it…yeah I have issues! Congrats on getting everything done. I need to get some Jalapeno plants for our beds, my seeds never took.

      I totally get not wanting to stress about it! I’m debating a trip to my dad’s but want to time it so that I can actually lose weight by June 2!!

      I bought some little pre-seeded things at Target that I’m going to try…tomatoes, cucumbers and something else i can’t remember! Need to finish prepping the bed for the veggies, and I am going to try to find some blueberry bushes too!

    I agree, working in the yard is definitely a work out! Great job with your fitness plan last week!

      I’ve avoided doing anything related to these darn beds for at least 2-3 years…have now decided to clear them all out – it did feel good, once I could move again!!
