So this hasn’t been a great week.  I’ve managed to come down with bronchitis.  It sucks.  I didn’t realize how bad it was until I tried to race my friend on the rowing machine and thought I was going die after 300 meters.  So I adjusted my workouts as much as I could.  I didn’t do the scheduled Best Body Bootcamp workouts, except for one day when I did a partial workout (Strength C).  I did a lot of strength training or yoga and not much cardio.  Today was a fun workout.  My husband and I took the kids to play basketball at the Y.  So it was fun for everyone and didn’t seem much like a workout.

As for my goals, being sick has helped.  I’ve made myself get my servings of fruits and veggies (especially oranges) and I’ve drank a bunch of water.  So I have met my goals almost every day (YAY ME!).

In all, I am having fun doing the Best Body Bootcamp.  We are halfway through, so it’s time to do the fitness test again.  I’m hoping I’ve improved.  I know that I’ve lost 1.75″ overall in the past month, but haven’t really lost any weight.  I am looking forward to the next two weeks’ worth of workouts.  They definitely look challenging.

For the coming week, I have 2 virtual 5ks to complete – one is for the 5 by the 5th series and the other is Tackle the Miles for the 13 in 2013 challenge.  They may be slow 5ks, but I will get them done.  I’m thinking about doing the virtual Heart Throb 5k, but haven’t decided yet.  My other challenge for the week is the Y’s Weigh challenge.  We have to do 15 miles run/walk, 15 miles bike, 15 jumping jacks, and 60 abs.  I have finished the bike, jumping jacks, and abs.

Here’s hoping my work out works out!
