After an interesting week, a few of my goals for my 12 Week Spring Fitness Challenge have been thrown off balance.
I can’t quite put my finger on exactly what happened (maybe it was a case of sleep deprivation, maybe it was taking a tumble on my Mt Majura walk, or maybe I just had a serious case of baby brain), but for some reason I was just a bit off last week.
How I went in Week Six:
My goals for the sixth week of the challenge were:
- To tackle 10,000 steps.
I wanted to average 10,000 steps a day for a total of 70,000 and as I write this on Sunday night I am almost there. It has been a great motivator this week and was the one goal I really stuck with. I fit in some long walks this week, including a MEGA trek up Mt Majura. On the way down I managed to slip not once by twice and my knees copped it pretty bad!
- Abdominals and pelvic floor exercises.
I managed to do most of my pelvic floor exercises but only did two lots of abdominals for some reason. To be honest, I kind of forgot about doing them! Oops.
- Time for 60 squats.
In another totally vague moment I somehow forgot that I wanted to do 60 squats each day instead of 50 and just kept right on doing 50!
Goals for Week Seven:
My goals for the seventh week of the challenge are:
- Try 10,000 steps again: I have kept this goal in the rotation for this week because I really want to pass this target and beat 70,000 steps.
- Get back in the pool: I am booked in for a MEGA Mums and Bobs Aqua class this week, as well as a fun trip to the pool with some girlfriends and our babies.
- Push-ups and planks: I am aiming for 20 push-ups and a 30 second plank each day.
So despite a few hiccups last week, I am determined to keep going with the challenge and find new ways to get active.
I’d love to know how you like to exercise and what keeps you motivated!
