I didn’t really want to ‘review’ September, for a few reasons – 1. Every part of my routine has taken a major hit – 2. I haven’t weighed in since the beginnning of September – 3. I didn’t/don’t want to take measurements.
So I will review it, but no weigh in, no measurements, and without being too hard on myself.
+ Maintain the amount of execise I managed through August, which means exercising minimum five days a week.
= I was doing well with this for the first half of the month, but then work got a bit hectic…
+ Weekly Yoga, Step and Shred, starting to incorporate Attack and Pump.
= Life really got in the way here. Shred was amazing (x8), Step was okay (3x), Pump (x2), Yoga and Attack were non-existent.
+ Continue jogging, I want to build up my endurance.
= 5 pure cardio sessions, with some jogging.
+ Burn a minimum of 2000 calories per day.
= I didn’t make it to 2000 calories on 6 out of the 30 days.
+ More accuracy in recording meals, stopping the guesswork.
+ Keeping my calories consumed under 1500, which means a minimum deficit of 500 calories per day.
= Not so great on either of these points. The last week of October I stopped recording my intake alltogether.
So this review leaves me wondering what I need to be aiming for over the next couple of months. I am hoping that by November should bring some relief in my work schedule, so I can go strong then. But what about October? How many sessions? What sort of exercise? What is best if I just want to maintain my current fitness level/weight?
