This fitness challenge runs from July 23 until August 20.
Week 1 results are in!
First, my personal goals during this challenge:
Increase strength & stamina as measured by moving along in the C25K program and lose 6 pounds, or 1.whatever pounds per week.
- run the c25k 3x weekly
- Spend 30 mins cycling weekly
- Swim 1x weekly
- Watch nutrition 5-6 days a week, 1 junk day allowed.
Today is weigh-in day for the NBN Fitness challenge and…. (drumroll please!)… I didn’t lose anything. Zip. Zilch. I am noticing a difference in definition in my calves and my belt is getting roomy, I’ll have to punch an extra hole soon. Perhaps the weightloss will show up next week.
I was right on track with my runs this week, I did three runs and an additional fourth short jog, I cycled for 30 mins on wednesday and hit the pool thursday! Exercise-wise this week was a success! Food-wise, I’ve kept the calories under control, I certainly haven’t overeaten but I haven’t been able to cut down/eat as well as I wanted to so I feel like I just stayed the same. I also had two junk-days (or, more like regular days) instead of the planned one day… Self-control… ugh. How’d you all do?
Also doing the challenge:
- Spender’s Broke who is doing a Warrior dash on Sept 17th… WOW, that looks intense and awesome! She’s set up a program to train for this.
- Serendipity who is hoping to pick up some healthy habits (me too girl, me too!)
- Travis Pizel from Our Journey to Zero who’s participating in not one, but two challenges, I’d wish him luck but I don’t think he needs it since he’s been doing soooo awesome already!
- Jackie from the Debt Myth wants to increase her time spent in the pool
- Maggie@SquarePennies challenged herself to exercise 6 days out of 7 during the challenge period.
