Readers’ Workouts – 8/8

I’m trying to get back to eating right and exercising. I did a pretty good job this week. I made my step goal, kept to my August challenge (moslty) and even snuck in some swimming before the weather turned a bit cooler this week. It really hasn’t felt like August the last few days.

Tuesday – Walk with the dog; 40 jumping jacks, 30 crunches, 30 squats, 13 push ups
Wednesday – Swimming, Walk; 40 high knees, 30 sec plank, 30 lunges, 13 push ups

Readers’ Workouts – 8/1

by


I can’t believe it’s August. Where has summer gone? I just missed my step goal this week according to the chart, but my fit bit died on Wednesday and I didn’t get a chance to recharge it until bedtime, so I’m giving myself some extra credit.

 

This week:

Tuesday – Walk with the dog
Thursday – Walk with the dog
Saturday – Walk with the dog
Monday – Walk with the dog, Pilates

I have a fitness Pinterest board and I pinned this plan a while ago. I thought it might be a good one to try for August, although I hate jumping jacks. I may trade jumping jacks for jumping rope.

Meal ideas:

Pork tenderloin with pierogies
Turkey Chiles Rellenos
Chicken Tacos
Shrimp fried rice
Mozzarella mini quiches
Flatbread pizza

My fish cakes turned out yummy last week.

I actually tried something without burning it – fish cakes and roasted veggies #iactuallycooked #yum

Readers’ Workouts – 7/25

The dog has not been up to as long walks this summer as he is in the spring. I may have to start going on my own or making him take multiple walks in a day. Saturday I took a walk by myself and one of the neighbors I rarely talk to asked where he was.

This week:

Wednesday – Swimming (which doesn’t count toward my steps. 🙁 )
Thursday – Walk
Saturday – Walk
Monday – Walk with the dog

Meal ideas:

Carolina barbecue pork tenderloin with apple slaw
Fried mushroom sub
Fish cakes with roasted veggies
Date night – either Bahama Breeze or Joe’s Crab Shack

Year Fitness Goals:

– Run 2 5ks, 1 10K and 1 half. Completed – 1 10K; 1 5K
