Fit Mommy Friday 2011 - Week 3

I feel good about my fitness this week. Here is my report:

Friday - 45 min. Wii

Saturday - 30 min Wii, 15 min. kettle bell exercises

Sunday - 1 hr. Wii

Monday - 15 min Wii

Tuesday - 1 hr with personal trainer plus 2 mile walk

Wednesday - recovery day!

Thursday - 2 mile walk

I mentioned last week that I would be working on setting goals to reach. I did spend a lot of this week focusing on goals in several areas of my life. My current fitness goals are:

  1. Continue 4 days per week of exercise, gradually increasing the intensity of my home exercise time. Right now I am using Wii Fit Plus to exercise at home. I do a combination of 'bike riding', jogging in place, and strength exercises. I added a short session with a kettle bell this week. I really enjoy the variety available on Wii Fit Plus, but I am considering some other exercise related Wii games and am also trying to use weights on my own to exercise.
  2. Increase my water intake. I have a hard time drinking water in the winter, much preferring hot drinks like coffee or honey sweetened herbal tea. I'm noticing though that I have more energy and immunity if I am well hydrated.
  3. Eat more raw vegetables. This can be difficult in the winter too, but we will be beginning our garden in the next couple of weeks and I will be able to harvest lettuce and peas by late February or early March. In the meantime I will live with whatever looks relatively fresh at the grocery store.

We have a busy week ahead and I will have to really work to get my exercise in!

You had a GREAT week! I agree it is hard to get water and fresh veggies in during the winter, but at least you are aware and trying!
