I’ve made it through week two of my 90 day fitness challenge. It’s had its ups and downs, but overall it wasn’t as painful as week one.
By Friday I was so wiped out that I almost hit the “Off” button on my phone and slept through Yoga. But I got up anyway and powered through, nearly falling flat on my face trying to do “Crane” pose. I was so tired by that night though, I was drooling on my pillow by 7:40 p.m.
On the nutrition side, this week reaffirmed my belief that I’m a total stress eater. The beginning of the week sort of put the “F” in “effed up” and Tuesday saw me wanting nothing but chips, cheese, and chocolate. My fitness challenge coach and group gave me some great advice on how to combat my desire to chow down when the cortisone levels spike and Wednesday started with a clean slate. I did pretty well the rest of the week.
I also gave up fruit snacks and Snickers (my personal irresistible temptations) for Lent as an added incentive to not eat them.
Here’s what week two looked like (exactly like week one, actually):
- Day 8 – Chest and Back
- Day 9 – Plyometrics
- Day 10 – Arms and Shoulders
- Day 11 – Yoga
- Day 12 – Legs and Back
- Day 13 – Kenpo
- Day 14 – Rest or Stretch
Week Two Wrap Up
I used a chair this week to help me with the pull ups and sure felt it in my back! I have no grace or balance and I hit myself in the face during Kenpo. My eating still needs help, but I did better this week than last week. Also, I’ve lost half an inch on my waist, hips and thighs. And best of all, I survived single leg wall squats!
Bring on week three!
