Last week was the end of week 4 and I am feeling stronger with my weight training. However a bit disappointed because I have a long way to go for strengthening my abs. I am going to schedule in the spinning classes. It is time to CRANK UP THE CARDIO! The treadmill is not enough cardio. If you have not heard abs start in the KITCHEN! What you eat makes a difference so my plan is to stick to oatmeal for breakfast, snacking on greek yogurt, fresh fruit, nuts and of course my GRAZE snacks. Lunch and dinner are the challenging meals of the day especially if it is a super busy day. If I’m on the go I will stop for something quick which is usually too many calories and is spending excess money.
I will have to make a conscious effort to eliminate sugary snacks in the refrigerator or on the shelf. During the summer month, I crave ice cream. If there is a food I need to stay away from I just forgo buying during my shopping trips. I know my kids will be disappointed but I have to go back to these eating habits.
For week 4, I decided to redo workout 1 exercises. The only change to the workout is to do circuit training but instead of 3 increase to 4. For the fourth circuit I just started from the beginning circuit 1. I’m not sure if this is correct. Week 5 is coming up and my week is cut short which means I will have to make up for it over the weekend.
