Fitness Friday: Week 6

It’s Friday and time to check in with how you’re doing in your fitness goals. First I want to apologize for the tardiness of this being posted. I normally work on it Thursday night, but I got wrapped up in a Facebook debate. I will share with you all what happened there soon. For now lets see how we’re doing in achieving a new fit you.

As I sit here watching the snow fall (we’re expecting 2 feet of snow today) I can’t help but think I can’t wait for spring and warm weather. Because then I could be outside taking walks with the family around the neighborhood. Of course, I will be getting one heck of a workout later when I go out to shovel this mess. Which will be a few times today in an attempt to keep ahead of the snow. So I think I’ll skip dancing.

So here’s how I’ve been doing. Still sticking to the smarter eating choices. Trying to enjoy treats in moderation. I am noticing a difference. My pants are definitely fitting a little better.

I still haven’t found a good aerobics program. I guess I’m going to have to purchase a video? Any recommendations for a good aerobics video? I’ll probably stick with Denise Austin, I’ve always loved her workouts.

Now it’s your turn. How have you been doing achieving your fitness goals? Anything we can celebrate with you? Any problems you’re having staying focused? Do you need a swift kick in the butt?

Grab my button below and check your BMI if you’re so inclined. I will not know what it is, only share it if you want to. Then link up at the bottom or leave a comment with your progress if you’d prefer. I hope we’re still working towards a new fitter you.

  1. This has been a bad week for fitness goal. We’ll talk again next week!

    normal BMI range: 18.5 – 25 kg/m2
    normal weight range for the height: 114.6 – 154.9 lbs

    Well, that’s depressing!!

    I am determined to lose weight this year. I have half heartedly started WeightWatchers… I really do suck at being on a diet. As soon as someone mentions diet, I get soooo hungry, haha (I know it’s all in my head!)

    I have just invested in a Zumba workout DVD that is going to please my downstairs neighbors immensely! My Sister and I intend to do this every day, so we will see how that goes!

    Good luck with Nemo! We live in Maryland and luckily have no snow. My Dad will be stuck in Long Island for the weekend though :/

    • Yeah seeing the word overweight is hard, but now you know how far you have to go to get rid of the word overweight ;). Zumba sounds fun, maybe I’ll look into that. I know there are classes around here cheap, but I think I’d be really bad about going. Between the kids and my husband things always seem to come up. Maybe you shouldn’t think of it as dieting and more of healthy eating. I haven’t started an actual diet, just trying to cut out the snacking on unhealthy snacks. It’s working.

      We are really getting hammered with the snow right now. This is one heck of a storm. I hope your father stays safe.
