SexyBack Challenge - Week 11 & 12

I can't believe this challenge is over! Has it really been 12 weeks?

The past couple weeks have been really good. I've been trying to finish this challenge strong and I think I did just that. I've been trying to get back into a workout routine. I tried Body by Bethenny and Crunch - Super SlimDown: Pilates Yoga Blend. BBB was challenging because I don't have a ton of experience with yoga, so I ended up not doing the whole thing. I think that I might go back to it when I have more experience. SSD was a great workout. I felt a lot more comfortable with it and had fun with it. The great thing about it is, is that it's on instant Netflix!

I'm so happy I was able to participate in the SexyBack Challenge, even if I didn't have weight loss in mind. I was able to get out of the rut that I was in as far as my health and fitness go.

Just to recap, here’s a list of my goals for SexyBack:
- 45 minutes minimum of physical activity or exercise 5-7 days of the week
- Utilize workout dvds (30 Day Shred, 6 Week six-pack, BL Cardio)
- Nightly walks/runs
- Use RunKeeper app
- MORE water (3+ miir bottles/day)
- Eat healthier
- MORE veggies, utilize the garden
- Less processed food and more fresh food
- Homemade meals
- Less pop and coffee, green monsters, fresh fruit smoothies or tea instead
- Use MyFitness app & website to track calories & exercise

Overall I feel like I've been very successful in meeting the goals I set for myself during this challenge. I am much more physically active than I was when I started. As I said in one of my last posts, I haven't been "working out" as much lately, but have been doing a lot of physical activity. I ended up not using the apps to track different things, but it seems like one more thing to have to deal with. I am drinking a lot more water [love my MiiR bottles]! I am definitely eating much healthier than I was before. I can proudly say that's one thing I did great on, especially in the last couple weeks with all the fresh veggies that have been around the house lately. As far as the pop and coffee go, I think it might always be a part of my life, but all in moderation of course! I am really confident that even as this challenge is ending, I will be able to keep this all up!

Finally, I'd like to say thanks to Carlos and Grant for starting this challenge!
