Fitness Diary - Week 8

This week was a big improvement on last week's efforts, though it wasn't without it's own struggles. I got in way more exercise, but I had a few days of poor food choices that didn't help me reach my goal. I didn't expect to lose any weight this week because I had changed my My Fitness Pal goal to losing .25 kilo a week as opposed to .5 kilo and figured my body would take a little time to get used to it. I ended up putting around half a kilo back on, but I'm not too fussed. Despite the weight gain, I'm down another half inch in the waist. A fair trade off I think!

My goals for next week are to do an equal amount of pilates, walk a little further every day, and eat better most days (leaving room for one treat because I'm craving that Starbucks!). Click through for this week's Fitness Diary update!

Week 8: 
Day 1: Butt Lifting + Thigh Sculpting Workout + Plie Squat Challenge +  2.5K Walk. I wanted to ease back in with a video that's not very challenging but I enjoy doing. For some reason I decided to top it off with a squat challenge - which was incredibly difficult and left me with jelly legs, but I felt really satisfied afterwards.

Day 2: 6K Walk. My legs were destroyed after yesterday's Plie Squat Challenge.

Day 3: Thigh Slimming Challenge + 10 Min Butt Lift Challenge + 2K Walk. While none of the moves were very challenging me, I nearly sweat to death. Not sure how I'm going to work through the summer heat when it's in full swing.

Day 4: Ab Time for Beginners + Quick Ab Workout + 3K Walk. Tonight's workout was very stop and start, not due to difficulty but due to heat. Even after 10pm it was still over 85F and I was sweating it out. I also ate garbage today - a 20 piece chicken nugget meal at 2am did me no favors, so I think I'll be going without treats for quite a while!

Day 5: Stretching for Leg Flexibility + Perfect 10 Abs + 2.5K Walk. Nice and easy videos, but once again, it was very stop and start because of the heat. I ate much better today, but I was still feeling a little snack-y.

Day 6: Hot Abs + 4K Walk. I didn't really commit to the video honestly. Hopefully I'll put more effort in tomorrow.  Almost back on track with eating, though I did have a very starchy latke dinner.

Day 7: 3.5K Walk. I had the intention of doing a video, but time got the best of me and I wasn't able to squeeze one in. I ate much, much better today and stayed well under my allotted calories to make up for two days of problematic eating.
