I have to admit this challenge is way harder than I thought it would be. I totally underestimated those side plank leg lifts.
Anyways, here is a reminder of the inner thigh exercises we are doing this month.
The challenge is to do this sequence 3 – 4 times per week, as many rounds as you can do. I have only been able to get through one round per day so far. I hope to be able to do 3 rounds by the end of the month.
Below are my daily breakdowns. I decided to start sharing my cardio choices and calorie intake as well.
Rest Day – I really needed a break from all exercise to let my body have a break.
I didn’t track my calories today either. Today was a total cheat day. I mean, my Girl Scout cookies came in today for peets sake…lol
Lazy Sunday! Self explanatory I hope.
I did track my calories today though. I finished the night out with 1053 calories total. That is 147 calories less than my daily goal. No had I exercised in any way shape or form today I wouldn’t blink an eye at the extra calories. But that’s not healthy to eat so few calories, even on a lazy Sunday.
P90X Cardio (44 minutes)
March Challenge 1 rounds
It’s so hard to get back on track, eating healthy when you had a cheat day and then a lazy Sunday back to back. But today is a new day, and I will do my best to stay on track and avoid the Girl Scout cookies calling me from the pantry. My final calorie count was 1286, my goal for today was 1825, and my remaining calories were 539.
Today was a crazy day of errand running. So no actual cardio or challenge were being done today, although I did do A LOT of walking today, so I’m sure I picked up a few extra calories there.
I did go over my goal today, which happens from time to time. My goal today was 1200, my calorie intake was 1428, with an overage of 228. Damn those sweet potato tater tots! Why are they so good? LOL
Bob Harper Pure burn Super Strength Main Workout (25 minutes)
March Challenge (1 round)
So, I don’t watch the Biggest Loser at all, but I came across this video on youtube and thought, why not? I hadn’t done anything with weights in a long time and I know I need to start. The video in total is just over an hour long. I made it a whopping 25 minutes before I just couldn’t even raise my arms anymore…lol. I now have a goal of finishing that video by the end of this month. I only got one round of the challenge done today. I was so exhausted after 25 minutes with Bob. All together I burned 337 calories. This gave me a calorie goal of 1537 for the day. I ended the day with 1341 calories taken in, and 196 calories left over.
Today is Ben’s 36th birthday!!!! Yay Ben!
I treated today as a rest day, so no extra calories to work with today.
I thought I would need to make this a cheat day, but I actually did pretty good even with going out for Ben’s birthday dinner.
My goal for today was 1200, I was a little under at 1107 (93 left).
Last day of week 1 DONE!
I got 1 round of the challenge done, which makes a total of 3 for the week, whoop whoop!
My calorie intake was ok for today, just a little under. My goal was 1200, I used 1190, and was left with 10 extra calories at the end of the night. Not to bad, I would say.
So I hope everyone is having fun with this months challenge. I know it is a little hard, but with practice and determination we will all get it and out inner thighs will look AMAZING!!!
This was not a great cardio week for me, so I’ll really need to put in a little more effort next week.
Check back next Friday for another update. Talk to you all then.
