Well, the third week of Boot Camp is over. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as diligent this week with my workouts. I only did 1 of the 3 Strength workouts. But I did do all of the cardio, plus some. I don’t really have a good excuse, other than all my workout stuff is in the basement and it’s really cold in the basement. Thankfully my treadmill is not down there or else I probably wouldn’t have done the cardio portions either.
Here’s my weekly recap:
Monday – 1/21
Tuesday – 1/22
Cardio interval with core workout
Wednesday – 1/23
100 burpee workout
Thursday – 1/24
Friday – 1/25
Friday we were stuck inside because of the ice storm. So I jumped on the treadmill for a 45 minute cardio interval. I alternated speed and incline every 5 minutes while watching The Biggest Loser on the DVR.
Saturday – 1/26
A repeat of yesterday with the same treadmill workout and finished out the same episode of the Biggest Loser. I’m really into it this season. This is actually the first season I’ve ever really watched. Sure, I had seen bits and pieces before. And honestly what turned me off before was Jillian. I couldn’t stand listening to her yell at people. But this time it’s a little different. I’m watching with a different goal in mind. I do like Bob, though. And I like this new trainer, Dolvett. And this season, I really like that they brought the kids in to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic. If you’re not watching, you should check it out.
Sunday – 1/27
Another treadmill workout. But this time, I mixed it up. Here’s how it went:
Minutes 0 -5: Walk 4.3mph on 8% incline
Minutes 5-10: Run 6.5mph on 1.5% incline
50 air squats, 50 walking lunges
Minutes 10-15: Walk 4.3mph on 9% incline
Minutes 15-20: Run 6.5mph on 1.5% incline
25 push ups, 25 sit ups, 1 minute plank
Minutes 20-25: Walk 4.3mph on 10% incline
Minutes 25-30: Run 6.5mph on 1.5% incline
1 minute wall sit, 1 minute plank, stretch
This coming week, I am going to try to stick to Tina’s prescribed workouts exactly as written. If it’s cold in the basement, I’ll put on a sweatshirt. No excuses.
In addition to the workout schedule, Tina also has you choose two goals for the week. My 2 goals were to drink 64oz of water and take my vitamins daily (that’s one goal) and also to make sure to do my nightly routine every night, which includes taking my contacts out and washing my face, among other things. I’ve gotten in a bad habit of falling asleep on the couch and then just crawling into bed without taking off my makeup or taking out my contacts. (Yes, I know how bad it is to sleep in contacts. In fact, I got a corneal abrasion several months ago because I was sleeping in my contacts.) So I need this extra motivation to help me form a good habit at bedtime. Or maybe if I win the $1,000 in the end I could use it towards Lasik so that I don’t have to worry with the contacts at all.
