Mission: Get in Shape! - Week 2

Updated on August 27, 2012

So how did you do?

It's time again to weigh in, break out the measuring tape and see how well you did in week 1. I have to confess, I didn't stick to my plan exactly. Memorial Day BBQ effectively killed day 1. Yummy sangria and flaky, sweet, delicious dessert that was Mmm Mmm good! Thankfully the host of the BBQ is more health conscious than anyone I know so there was also a healthy blend of veggies and whole wheat crackers. However I still had more dessert than I really should have. Also overdoing the weights ensured I wasn't going to be working out for two days. However, even though I didn't follow the plan to the letter (leftovers are evil but sooo good) the numbers show improvement form last week.

This Weeks Goal

Despite having not completely followed the meal and workout plan I scheduled for myself, there was still some improvement. This week my goal is to follow the schedule laid out more closely. I am going to lighten up on the weights a bit during the sculpt training, so I don't have a repeat of last week where my muscles were so sore I couldn't do anything for two days. All the bad food is now out of the house. This will alleviate the desire to cheat and there are no holidays for a little while so there is no excuse to go off the plan. If the last week has proven anything it is that you don't have to deprive yourself to reach your goals, however it will take longer the more you stray.

Tip of the Week

The best time to exercise is in the morning when you should have the most energy. However, if you really aren't a morning person then getting in a workout when it's most convenient for you is better than doing it when you are only half awake. Try and work out at the same time each day to get into a routine and help you succeed.
