Weekly Recap

I know that I just got back into the blogging world after a very long hiatus, but I want to start keeping a more consistent schedule with my posts.  With that being said, I will post twice a week.  On Wednesdays I will post something mom related.  Whether it be organizing, planning, fun activities, craft projects or reviews.  On Saturday morning I will post a fitness recap for the week and encourage a challenge for the next week.

So, let’s get started! This week I felt successful with my workouts! I got up 4 mornings out of the work week to run or lift.  I ran my furthest distance in a long time.  But honestly, I’m not sure which number to believe.  As always I ran on the treadmill, I set my speed and stayed consistent.  Only this time, I ran with my watch and my phone also tracking on indoor mode and the distances were all different.  Treadmill was 3.46 (still my longest run since I was pregnant with my last child- fyi he is over a year old), Garmin watch was 4.3 and my phone was 4.6 miles.  I’d love to believe my distance was actually closer to the Garmin just to boost my self-esteem.

Friday I started a burpee challenge.  I found a post on runners world by Danielle Zickl called “I did 30 Burpees For 15 Days and Here’s What Happened” and figured I would give it a shot.  Doing 30 burpees didn’t seem to be overly challenging to start. It was something I felt I could improve as I went along in the challenge.  It is also safe to assume that you can stick to anything for just 15 days.  Therefore, I went for it! Day 1 was successful.  I completed 3 sets of 10 with a minute in between each set.  As the days go on, I will decrease the time between the sets until I am just doing 30 burpees in one continuous sequence.

Here is the challenge for the week.  Set a challenge for yourself for the next 15 days.  Join me in the burpee challenge!  Now, start TODAY! Don’t wait until Monday.  If you continuously tell yourself that you will start Monday, you will find a way to put it off again.  So, start today.  Hence my reason for starting on a Friday.  After all it is just 15 days.  You can do this!  Let me know what your personal challenge is going to be! I would love some ideas for a future personal challenge.

As always, be confident, be fit, be you!
