I’m THRILLED that more than 25 people have signed up for this challenge between the blog, twitter and facebook!! So incredibly exciting and I know that y’all are going to accomplish some amazing things before summer!
One of my commitments is around physical activity. General activity and more yoga. Here was my week including plans for the weekend:
Sunday: 90 minute Bikram yoga class
Monday: 30 Day Shred
Thursday: 60 minute Fit Chicks Boot Camp (Yup. That’s' how happy I was when boot camp was over)
Friday: 30 minute run at lunch (or class if I make it on time!)
Saturday: 45 mins cardio
I would like to work towards doing the 30 Day Shred on days when I can’t squeeze in an outside workout, but sometimes I’m way too busy or just not home enough. It was a busy week and I’m proud of the work that I did!
Another one of my commitments is around tracking my food intake and I’m happy to report that I have been tracking everything! I’ve been using e-tools this week and really loving it. Makes everything so easy to calculate and keeps me accountable. Love. It.
Speaking of eating… I ate some pretty yummy meals this week. On Wednesday I had a picnic with Nicole which was totally awesome!! I made the spring awakening salad from the Crazy Sexy Life siteand she brought some delicious roasted veggies plus Mary’s cracker sticks and hummus. We followed our delicious vegan lunch up with one of these awesome (and unpictured) breakfast cookies that were so delicious. I made them with quinoa flakes instead of oats and added some dark chocolate chips. Next time I would use less sugar, because I don’t think they need as much (especially with the chocolate chips) but they were stupendous and really easy!
I also had Jessie over for dinner before boot camp last night and made some green chile enchiladas that I had seen in the new Weight Watchers magazine. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo!Ours did not look like that. BUT they were delicious, oh-so-easy and awesome fuel for our workout. I have no idea how to make them prettier, but I am not ashamed of my non-blog-worthy photo!
Some #52dts shout-outs going to my dearest darling Jessie for kicking butt last night at boot camp and to Laura (my best friend from the 6th great who is all kinds of awesome) for getting back on track and remotivated with the challenge.
There will be a new challenge up on Monday. Please feel free to link to any blog posts you’ve written about the challenge and don’t forget to use the #52dts hashtag when tweeting. My twitter doesn’t want me to create a list apparently, so hopefully I will have that done over the weekend.
Now it’s your turn!
How was your week? How did you find the challenge? Did you come up with some compelling reasons that truly resonate with you? What are your commitments? How did you begin to work them into your life?
