At work lately, I've been noticing that I am doing the same activities over and over. This is a great way to create a set routine, but after a while, doing exercises to "Hoop De Doo" and "Mambo" gets a bit repetitive. Routines are great ways to get into a zone food-wise, but exercise-wise is another story. I have other exercise routines to do at work, just get comfortable with the same 5 songs. So, my goal for next week will be to practice a new exercise routine that I can do with my residents.
As I have already mentioned, I started the push up challenge and I am also going to start my own sit-up challenge to work together with the 100 push-up challenge. You're welcome to try yourself. I am going to use the push-up program and just switch it to sit-ups. Yesterday i started Day 1 of my sit-up challenge. I actually found it much easier to do sit-ups than it is to do push-ups. Today, I will rest from the sit-ups and start Week 2 of the Push-Up Challenge.
Routines are a great way to reach a goal, but now that I am maintaining, I need a bigger challenge. I am amazed at my Sister-In-Law, who just completed a 1/2 triatholon. I'm not quite sure if that is the sort of challenge I am looking for, but I do need something to keep me interested. So after the push up/sit up challenge, I'll be looking for bigger and better challenges.
So, I need to get back to the healthy food routine as today, I snacked on a few too many brownies and peanut butter cookies. On bad thing about Flex is that you can eat these not so healthy foods and still stay with in your points. 2 brownies and 4 peanut butter cookies should not be my lunch on a daily basis. I still got some work to do!
