Blogger challenge week 2

Two weeks in one day, happy to be back blogging and up to date with the challenge, thanks to Jayne here we go with week 2.............
This week is about our workouts.
I've been mixing it up as I like to do. I've been hitting the gym (which I love) and as always I have my trusty Mish dvd's at home for when I can't get to the gym and I love doing the outdoor program too. This round for me is about really pushing myself outside of my comfort zone, and so far to cement that, I've joined in 2 challenges. Last round I couldn't bring myself to join in challenges, I was always convinced I'd fail and didn't want to set myself up for that. But I've discovered, thanks to a very inspirational lady, that failing is ok
Firstly I committed (and secretly enjoying) doing Mean Abs June. Confession be known, I looked at the first few days and committed to doing this. After day 1 I looked at day 30 and nearly fell over, but instead of giving up, cause it's too hard, every day without fail, I complete my mean abs
My other challenge that I committed to was to burn the correct amount of calories every day. 500 per day and 1000 for SSS. Week 1 was a slight disaster seeing me only burning 1900 calories, but I've burnt more this week. I don't think I'll get to my total of 3500 for the week, but as I type this today I've burnt 2520 calories and I'm yet to do my SSS which is planned for this afternoon. So I might get there yet.

I've started running again, which I was absolutely loving last round until I managed a stress fracture in week 4 which ruled out running for the rest of the round. I started the C25k, where I left off and I was really happy that I could cope with that amount of running after having so long away from it. I am sticking to the treadmill this time though (as suggested my my doctor). No more road running until I can officially call myself a Runner :)

Until next week

  1. Mean abs! Go you! I have to seriously have words with myself about doing ab work. All. The. Time.

    Sounds like you have a solid plan & it's going to be a great round for you. :)
