So, it’s week 3 of the fitness challenge! And I’m making some progress! Every day for two months, I’m doing 50 pushups, 50 crunches, 50 squats, and 75 calf raises. You can catch the first two weeks here and here. Every Tuesday, until the challenge is over, I’m going to update you on my progress.
Also every week, I hope to intensify the exercises that I’m doing just so I don’t get bored and also to get stronger.
RECAP OF WEEK 2
For the start of week 2, I was sore. I thought it was due to the more intense workout but I realized it was from my run! It has been a while since my last run and I was clearly feeling it. The plan was to continue to run for the week but that did not happen. I prefer to wake up and run but it was difficult for me to get back into the routine after not having done it for so long. Let’s hope this week is a better week for running!
Once the soreness from the running went away, I realized that even though the exercises were harder, I was still able to push through and not be as sore. This tells me that I’m getting stronger.
The goal for my food intake was to make healthier choices. It was off to a great start but I was out of town for the week and it was harder to make healthier choices. With all the fried goodness that the South is known for, I lost the battle for healthier food choices for the week. But nevertheless, there is still time to correct the wrong and I have been back to making healthier meals.
Below, you can see a side-by-side comparison of what changes, if any, occurred in my body.
As you can see, there are subtle changes in all areas! The rolls on my back are finally tightening up (yay crunches)! Also, my mid-section is getting tighter and my abs are starting to come out of hibernating. Overall, I’m making great progress. The results look promising and can’t wait to see the end results next month!
In the video, you’ll see the circuit that I’m doing for week 3.
So the goal for this week is to make healthier choices with my food, increase the intensity of the circuit for week 3, and incorporate cardio (running).
Don’t forget to use #2monthfitnesschallenge so we can struggle together to get back into shape.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
