Weekly Recap of my Fitness Goal

I have been slacking  in my work out routine lately and our beach  getaway is coming up so I gave myself a  challenge after my 41st birthday.

I started last Monday (June 16).  Picture below was taken by my daughter after  I walked 2 miles and burned 450 calories.  
Forgot to take a snapshot of  my numbers in the treadmill but I wrote it down in my desk calendar.
June 17 - Only walked 1.597 miles for 30 minutes.  I did some hula hoops and 5 minute planking.
June 18 - I did not walk in the treadmill, I gave my legs a break for one day but I did some crunches and squats and two minute planking.
June 19 - I managed to  burned 551 calories  in 45 minutes.  I told myself that the next day, I would try to  up  burnt calories to 600.
June 20 - As I set my goal to 600, I ended up  burning 650 cals in 53 minutes.  Walked 3 miles this time.  I joked when I posted this on FB that maybe I could burn 700 next time.
June 21 - I almost walked in one hour but  burned 700 as I promised.  Distance walked was 3.218 miles.
June 22 - was my rest day.  I did not do any walking but we played basketball instead.
I may look skinny at 95 pounds but I can assure you that 5 pounds of my weight is the stubborn belly fats that I have been trying to get rid for years now since I became a Mom.
I am not giving up, I will try and try until I reach my goal of shedding  this unwanted fats in my belly.  In time.. with  hard work  and perseverance.  It might take till I am in my 70's but I am sure it will happen hahaha.

Above  workouts are done in the following notes:
  • 3:0 speed
  • Walking only
  • 10% grade incline, meaning  it is like walking up hill that's why I can't really run.  In a flat  surface, I could though.  
Goal this week is to maintain the same.  Hopefully, I could.

  10. keep motivating yourself sis, sooner you'll eventually get there, just don't overdue the work out as your body wears out easily and also that 5 pounds might be the muscles your building.

    1. I don't think I overdo my workouts, if there is the case, it's lacking exercise lol. Yep, I don't lose weight because the fats that I slowly losing is turning into muscles which I am happy, kaya I am motivated.

  22. Mommy, I am sure you can do it. Maybe you can also do like a toning or cardio core workout, something like that. Something that focuses on the core area. I have been doing Piloxing, T25, Jillian Michaels workout for a couple of weeks now and I am excited about the result I see on my body. Today was my rest day and tomorrow I will be working again. You are looking fabulous mommy and you definitely make 41 looking sexy. :)

  23. Good luck on your fitness goals. I think 700 calories is equivalent to a one hour run.
