BodyRock: Patience

13 Jul

I’m a pretty impatient person… and all week I’ve been trying to waiting patiently for this first week to be over. Not because I don’t want to to be doing this, but because I am excited for the results. To be honest, I just want to be a month into it and take some ‘after’ photos to see where I am at!

But we all have to be patient. You aren’t going to be where you want to be in one day… in one week even. So the best thing you can do is set small goals. As good as it is to look at the big picture, try to see what’s directly in front of you, too. It’s all about working hard, being patient and the results will come.

If your goal is to lose 15 pounds, give yourself a fair amount of time to do it. Say… 3 months. Now break it down from there: that’s 5 pounds a month to loose, and if there are 4 weeks in a month, that’s only 1.25lbs each week to lose. Doesn’t that seem much more attainable than 15 pounds overall?

Even if your goal is just to tone (and not worry about weight) set fitness goals: run 5K by X date, do 100 pushups without stopping, etc…

What’s your goal? Break it down and it’ll come more easily!

Make sure you are all keeping up with drinking lots of water! I also try to drink green tea throughout the day – if it’s a really hot day, try it on ice.

Here are our meals from yesterday…

Breakfast: peanut butter on a ww thin bagel with banana

lunch: Greek pasta salad (pasta, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, feta cheese & Greek dressing)
*tomorrow, I am going to mix this with spinach to get a bit more out of it.

snack: almonds, dried cranberries & dark chocolate chips

dinner: BBQ chicken breast, broccoli, 1/2 baked sweet potato & left over grilled veggies

Bootcamp was awesome last night – what a work out! Kyle did these at home while I was at bootcamp. We opted to not do bodyrock toinght, since this was a pretty intense workout. We did two countdowns… starting at 100 reps, all the way down to 10 reps:

have fun!

this set was BRUTAL (in a good way). We also ran a hill in between each exercise…
