This week I'll talk a little about the workout side of the challenge. I get points for working out for at least 30 minutes each day five days each week. The other two days should be rest days and I get points for those too. Easy!! I also get bonus points for following their TerraFit workout schedule. Not so easy.
The TerraFit workout is their own set of workout DVDs, similar to P90X, Insanity, etc. Those who have been reading for a while know that I kind of suck at those kinds of things. I'm just not great about working out at home. I always choose to do other things around the house that need done, then I get too tired and don't want to. I made an effort, but I seriously haven't had a minute to try to do these workouts.
I'm teaching 5-7 Zumba classes each week so I'm getting a ton of cardio. What I need is some more strength training. I do the monthly calendar challenges, but I feel like that's not enough. My goal for this challenge is to do a strength training workout three times per week. Last week I did one. This past week I did none. And this week isn't looking great, I'm super busy getting ready for Thanksgiving so I'm probably only doing my classes. I'm really hoping to
All in all, I had a pretty great week. Here's how the workouts looked:
