B2W Mission 3 After Action Report

Monday, February 28, 2011

Summary: Consistency is awesome. I did either ST or cardio every day, and usually both. I've also really pushed my boundaries by doubling up my boot camp ST exercises and trying new things, like resistance bands, Vinyasa yoga, and new stretching routines. Yet I managed to gain 3 pounds last week alone, after consistently losing 2 pounds a week for 3-4 weeks. (I'm mostly blaming water weight - I did a super intense workout yesterday afternoon, followed by a salty dinner and a glass of wine. The fact that I drank a bajillion glasses of water today without needing a bajillion bathroom trips helps prove this theory. But I also seriously neglected my food tracking, and that obviously didn't help.)

Advice to self: Track everything you eat and focus on getting 5 freggies a day. emoticon Also, make sure you're doing sufficiently intense cardio.

Weekend After Action Report:

emoticon Two upper body videos with resistance bands on Friday (Coach Nicole's videos here on SP), lower body with resistance bands and crunchless core videos, also by Coach Nicole, on Saturday.

emoticon I set my bike in the stand and used it as a stationary bike for 25 minutes on both Friday and Saturday.

emoticon 50 minutes of Vinyasa yoga, for which I am paying today with some serious DOMS. To the point where I can barely walk. So worth it to feel this strong!

Total fitness minutes: roughly 140
