Weekly Recap/Month in Review - January


Cathe Friedrich rocking out her Muscle Max (just like Body Pump) workout! WOO HOO!

Happy Monday y'all!! It is the beginning of the month and the beginning of a week and that means weekly/month recaps! A chance for me to look back and see how I fared for the month!

Here is the weekly recap from last week....SUPER happy with my commitment last week. I felt great and clearly that shows in some GREAT workouts (have I mentioned how AWESOME the 2nd trimester is?? J):

Monday: 45 minute treadmill @10% incline 4.4 MPH AM; Body Pump 60 minutes PM
Tuesday: Light cardio 30 minutes plus 25 minutes power yoga
Wednesday: 45 minute treadmill @10% incline 4.4 MPH + 30 minute P90 Yoga AM; Body Pump 70 minutes PM
Thursday: 45 minute treadmill @10% incline 4.4 MPH AM
Friday: Body Pump 70 minutes PM
Saturday: 55 minutes treadmill @10% incline 4.4 MPH (620 cals) AM; Shoulders/legs/abs supersets 45 minute followed by 30 minutes elliptical PM
Sunday: P90X Yoga - 45 minutes AM; Body Pump 60 minutes PM

Weekly Totals:
Cardio Sessions: 6
Weights: 4 BP; 1 Superset WO (shoulders and legs)
Yoga/Stretching: 3

And my monthly totals for January:

  • Total days: 31
  • Total cardio: 31
  • Total lifts: 18
  • Yoga/stretching: 3
  • Days off: 3
Compared to December:
  • Total days in month: 31
  • Total cardio sessions: 14
  • Total weight training sessions: 17
  • Total workouts: 31
  • Days off: 10

Difference in Dec vs. January:

  • 17 additional cardio sessions (can you tell my energy came back???)
  • Same number of lifting/weight sessions
  • Added in yoga stretching - only 3 sessions but it counts!
  • 7 fewer days off

Overall, I feel really great with where my January ended up. I wanted to increase my cardio - CHECK! I wanted to change to total body workouts - CHECK! I wanted to incorporate some stretching and/or yoga - CHECK! I love the monthly recap...definitely makes it easier to look at improvements, successes, etc. How do YOU look at your progress? Are you reviewing your workouts to determine areas of focus?

Have a great week y'all! New baby bump pics on Thursday! :)

You impress me so much. That recap is amazing. We all should be doing that. I love it. You accomplished sooooo much. I am jealous of your endurance. I cannot go 45 minutes @ 10% incline and 4.4 mph. That is awesome. My legs would rather just start running vs walking that fast. :)
