Well this week took a little bit longer as I had a cold last week so I had to postpone some of my workouts.
The plan of the week4x Circuit
1x My Session
This is how my extended week looked like
Sunday: Move (40 Min. Walk)
Monday: Move & Circuit
Tuesday: Not feeling well
Friday: 30 Min. Yoga
Saturday: Move (20 Min. Stepper), Circuit & My Session: Tone It Up Kettlebell
Sunday: Move (20 Min. Cycling) & Circuit
Monday: Test & My Session: Tone It Up Best Inner & Outer Thighs Workout
Tuesday: 30 Min. Walk & 30 Min. Stretching
My motivational word for this week was: BELIEVE
Sometimes I just don't believe enough in myself and that was a good reminder. I always write the word in my planner, but I think I should make a big note on my door too.
As I do all my workouts in the gym I find it easier to split the My Session into smaller 10-20 minute workouts. Usually a gym session looks like that: 20 minutes of Move (treadmill, bicycle, step machine), one circuit (ca. 20 minutes), 10 minutes My Session and 10 minutes of stretching and I'm done. I know I should divide the workouts into am and pm-workouts, but I think it just doesn't work for me. And actually it takes me 40 min to the gym, it would be so annoying to stay there for just 20 min. :D
The test workout was again torture. Haha. 10 rounds of situps, knee to elbow, push ups and jump squats. I'm dead. And I think I will always put the test workout on day 6 of my week and day 7 as a recovery/stretching day. The test workouts definitely pushed me to the limit.
When it comes to eating I think I made progress. I concentrated this week on eating at the table or my favorite chair but without any distraction. And I always put some fruits or veggies on my plate. And if we talk about my plate: MyPlate is a website from the United States Department of Agriculture which provides a lot of information about healthy eating and what I liked the most was the different plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Since I have no printer I just drew it and pinned it on my fridge as a little reminder.

I was pretty surprised when I saw how much my measurements changed. A nice reward for a hard week. Haha. I also wanted to show my first progress pictures. Yes, the lightening is different, and no I didn't go to the solarium. :D It's interesting to see that my waist is always slimming down the most. Wished I could slim my thighs instead... But I'm very satisfied with the progress in the short amount of time.
See you next week!
