So, it’s week 6 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. Catch up on my progress in week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, and week 5.
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 5
The countdown to the end begins as I have about 3 more weeks until the end of the challenge. Looking back at Week 5, I was sore all over again. I incorporated deadlifts into my circuit and it had my hamstrings crying. By day 3, I was finally walking like a normal person again. The circuit for week 5 was tough for me though. I think it was the exercises with the weights were tough throughout the entire week. Usually, it’s tough up until about day 3 or 4. However, up until day 7, it was really tough to push through the entire circuit. This can only mean that I’m getting stronger right?
Let’s talk about my food intake. I’m a bit embarrassed to say that my eating habits were atrocious for the week. I would like to say that the reason I ate horribly is because of work but I had the choice to say no but I didn’t do it. We had a lot of clients from out of town for the week. This means lots of unhealthy snacks (i.e., candy, chips, cookies, etc.) that I could indulge in. Unhealthy snacking is my weakness because I am a snacker and have a very large sweet tooth.
In the video, you’ll see the circuit that I’m doing for week 6.
The goal for the next month is to keep increasing the level of difficulty with the exercises, start running (hopefully), and eat healthier.
Don’t forget to use #2monthfitnesschallenge so we can struggle together to get back into shape.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
