Week One Done!

Filed under: Things I do to get fit a.k.a exercise! Eeek!, Thoughts for the day — Tags: , , — myjourneyfromfattofit @ 3:21 pm

Phew! I made it through week one of my 30 day Challenge that I have given myself! barely! LOL  I have to say that I have eaten perfectly clean – as in 100% clean until last night – I had a movie fest and ate some smart pop and lied to myself that it was ok (I paid for the chemical ingestion this morning!) my bad.  other than that one item my fuel has been literally perfect.   I have kept up with the daily exercises in the 30 day routine from exercise tv (see my previous post for link).  Although I did have to juggle the days off and work out days because I was quite sore for a couple of days.  I also had added in a yoga workout and a brisk 90 minute walk on one day.  So I’m feeling pretty good about my level of activity this week.  I am starting my 10 week running program in addition to the 30 day challenge exercises as of tomorrow.  I was going to start running today – however it is snowing here – oh yeah you read right – it’s snowing in Newfoundland on May 21st! That unfortunately is nothing major here – it snow well past when you think it should on a regular basis here in this part of Canada – I loathe it but I have to live here for now so what can ya do?  soooo tomorrow for my first run.  I am adding a separate post for my 10 week running program if anyone reading would like to follow along with this as well.

Things are moving along nicely and I can’t wait to start week 2 of the challenge as the exercises get a little more intense and a little longer!  Anyone out there who has taken up the challenge with me – please post comments along the way to let me know how you are progressing and what you think of the challenge as well.  happy days!



  1. Day one workout was so intence to me I cant imagine how challenging it must be two weeks in. I was sore so did’nt do it every day but I redid day 1 again this morning. I did much better with it this time.

    You must be in excellent shape all told. Snow? Ick!

    • yes it is pretty intense even though it’s only 30minutes! I was very sore the next day as well but I did day 2 ontime and then on day three I had no choice but to take the day off as I was unable to sit properly and kept getting leg cramps LOL I am definately NOT in excellent shape – not even in good shape – however I am very competitive even when it’s just with myself – kinda warped I know but I have some very hardcore goals for my own personal weight loss and fitness so I push myself. Do what you can and you will eventually see improvement. Good for you that you stuck with it and did the workout again that’s so awesome! yes snow it’s depressing I hate cold weather and it seems all we get here is either snow, rain, fog, wind and cold boo

  2. my hubby and I did day two today. Then we went shopping. When we got out of the car we were grunting and moving so slowly like old people because our buts and thighs hurt. heheh but I will keep doing it. Its short and effective.

    • haha yes I am so there with you – my thighs and bum have been sore as well – but as you said it is nicely short and effective – i’m enjoying this program – although now that I am running as well 3 days a week I think the 30 day challenge will be a little bit longer for me – I do not do those exercises on the days I run – my poor out of shape body is so not ready for a double whammy yet lol
