Spring Fitness Challenge – Week Seven

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!
