 My entry for week 13

1. Height: 5’11”, weight: 136 lb

2. Your fitness challenge(s) for this week: 30 minutes of pilates every other day + 30 minutes of cardio ( rollerblading, running, swimming or treadmill) every other day+20 sit-ups every hour for 8 hours on cardio days. Special exercises designed for pregnancy to increase flexibility (daily) + Kegels (twice daily). A total of about an hour or more of physical activity a day.

3. Your health challenge(s) for this week: Continue eating whole grains, veggies and fruits only with a few servings of kefir,eggs or sardines daily (sardines are low in dioxins and mercury)

4. How well did it go:

  • Fitness: I was happy with my fitness this week, did pretty good and even worked out when I thought i couldn’t.
  • Water: I’m back to my KleenKanteen bottle and being hydrated.
  • Food: Food intake was perfect. Nothing to complain about.

5. Failures and slip-ups: I usually work out with my husband ( i get bored working out alone), and this week he was so busy he barely got out to work out towards the end of the week. I had to muster up the energy to do that without him which was hard. But i don’t feel I did as good as I could have, because I didn’t have the help.

6. Weekly challenge wisdom: I’m wisdom-ed out, to be honest! This has become a habit for me which is great. So there’s nothing new that I learned this week.

7. Advice to fellow GET FIT members
: A few of you seemed to have fallen off the wagon. Whatever excuses you’re telling yourselves, they’re worth nothing. If you’re working out on your own – great! But if you’re not, then find the strength to start it again. Every little bit helps!

8. Self Portrait: JUMP

    I find it frustrating that so many people are gone. It helps knowing that there are other people out there and when they leave, I’m tempted to quit, too. I hope they come back! Love the selfie. Looks like it was tough to shoot. But then again, you’re an expert!

      I know! I agree! But remember that you’re foing this for yourself, not other people. Even if you don’t link up, you still need to continue doing all the things you did when you did link up. It jsut helped to have to enter it into a blog format, makes you be accountable!
