#FitnessFriday – Move Something

This week was a fabulous week for my workouts.  On Saturday (which is technically last week) I ran the the 5K in the Baltimore Running Festival.

On Monday, October 20th we kicked off our second installation of the DietBet challenge called Operation Pre-Holiday Slimdown.   There’s still time to register – $35 gets you in and we currently have over 60 people signed up!!!  The pot just keeps growing.  Lose 4% of your bodweight in 28 days and win money.  🙂

The rest of the week I did workouts on the treadmill (1 mile warm ups) working to decrease my mile time by picking up the pace on the treadmill each time.  I made progress.  I stopped being a wimp and turned it up because I know I can run faster.

While I didn’t get a chance to get with my personal trainer this week due to hectic schedules I did do my Sanders Optimum Fitness Online Boot Camp sessions which were tough.  Don’t let anyone tell you any different BUT they are effective.  There’s still time to sign up at http://sandersoptimumfitness.com.  Tell them I sent ya.  🙂

While I didn’t get with my personal trainer this week here are two killer workouts she created for me and the ladies of my fitness group last week.  ENJOY and tell me what you think of them.

Back To It Workout

And I must not forget the Little Black Dress challenge…..yes I put in work on that TOO!!!!!  Using my 30 Day Fitness Challenges app I tracked the workouts.  Now I did fall behind on my days and had to play catch up, who am I fooling, I’m still playing catch up but I did complete multiple days.  Check it out.

And there you have it folks.  I allowed myself NO EXCUSES and put in the work.  I am on a mission.  I must lose 1 inch from around my waist a MONTH plus 4% of my bodyweight in the next 4 weeks.  With focus and determination I am confident I will get there.  Until next week!

    Ooh, I like the idea of a monetary incentive to losing weight. Fridays are usually my lazy day, but now I’m feeling guilty!

    Yes girl, go faster! Your time is identical to my 5K time…something about that hump to get under a 9 minute mile (if your goal is to get faster) requires an extra push. Even if it’s not your ultimate goal, it would be cool to get there. Either way, great job!

    This week has not been as good as normal, I’ve been having a harder time sleeping and getting up for my morning workouts has only happened twice. Work has been crazy! Doing what I can to do what I can. 🙂

    Those are great smiles! Nothing I love better than to see a woman taking charge of her life and finding the blessing in it. Your smile shows the blessing!

    Hellow fellow Marylander!!! The Husband and I came thisclose to participating in the Baltimore Running festival (maybe next year), but we did end up driving through it to get to the Zoo…… Anyway, it looks like you’ve got some great workouts there and congrats on finishing your 5k. I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate small strength training bursts and the LBD challenge looks like a great one. Congrats again on all your great progress!

    Oh man. This just reminds me that I haven’t done any form of exercise in a couple of weeks. I blame all the time spent in front of my computer keeping tabs on the sports betting industry. lol
