I am getting so much better, we have been doing the 21 day challenge from yoga journal but I got sick a week in and so had to take a week off and my husband just started doing it with me 3 days ago. I also found the cutest yoga for kids program on youtube…link coming soon :)
Walked 1.5 miles and did Zwow 42 which took me 19 min with mods on 3 of the exercises….zuzanas score was 14 min…..grrr need to get back at it haha!
Z wow break down
4 rounds for time of
should have reached for the cooked chicken thigh in the fridge for my after workout meal…instead I reached for the summer sausage!
I have been making friends with the mail man lately as he has to bring me all these books lol!
The middle book is for me, the other two books are for me to learn how to feed my husband with….and there is another one coming.
I cant believe he claims I am his trainer…..what do I know about training and feeding a cyclist? o.0
Oh well time to learn, and that is good, I like learning :)
I have ordered 3 nutrition books for endurance athletes and one triathlon book…the triathlon book is for me (someday ill be good enough to do a sprint at least….darn running) the nutrition books are for me and my husband.
My husband has started a goal to try to become a professional cyclist by the year 2016. He has decided to ride 10000 miles (yes you read that right TEN THOUSAND MILES) in the year 2013 alone and has started a blog to document his entire journey. So Im going to promote him :)
Follow my husband at any one of these sites!

Plan of action: continue with yoga and pilates this week and next week try to add in a bit of cardio….the week after that continue yoga but switch to bodyrock and zwows instead of the cardio and pilates
Think you dont have time to exercise, think again. Throughout the day take random 30 second breaks and do as many as you can of any exercise.
For example do 30 seconds of high knees after taking a bathroom break, or 30 seconds of jumping jacks when you are waiting for the printer to print something.
Think you will look stupid? ok you might but who cares, it is a lot better to look stupid then to be sick all the time because you never move.(and here is a picture of me looking stupid after getting up to put my sleepy sons paci back in his mouth)
Dont say I cant. When you say you CAN’T have something your body wants it. Instead say I DONT.
Example dont say “Oh I wish I could have some of that fondu dipped cheesecake covered deep fried butter stick, but I cant.”
Instead say “Thank you for the offer but I dont eat fondu dipped cheese cake covered deep fried butter sticks, sorry.”
(ok yes I do eat oreos but I dont have much junkfood in the house right now)
Dont watch your tv. Or at least dont watch it live. Food commercials want you to be hungry and eat that is how they sell their product.
To avoid being manipulated into being hungry do one of three things, record your program and fast forward through the commercials, watch your shows online from commercial free sites like netflix, or just dont watch tv at all.
In fact you might get more done in the day if you are not in front of an electronic box all day too.
