Get Foxy Update

March 21, 2012

First 2 days of the Get Foxy Challenge have gone really well. I’m on holidays this week, so my routine is a bit different but I’m also having lots of time for exercise.

Day 2 for me was my first Food Coaching session with Marlene. Even though I’ve been watching my diet for years, and some would say slightly obsessed with food, there were still a few pointers from Marlene that I will find helpful. Due to being vegetarian, I will have to make changes to the program, but looks like that won’t be a problem.

In the evening we had the first group training session for Team Transformers. Each week the Foxy Challenge includes a workout of the week which we get extra points for doing. So we decided to meet up and do this workout as a group. We had a couple of extras join in with us which was great. At first we were a bit of a muddle, as we tried to get ourselves organised, but soon got serious and into the workout.

Week 1 workout was a circuit consisting of boxing, various weights exercises,  pushups, situps, planks, and mountain climbs.  A few weeks ago I tore a muscle so am still not allowed to do core exercises. However that wasn’t a problem as I was able to substitute other exercises.

I really loved this circuit and look forward to doing it again, especially after I’m cleared to do core exercises again.

Before we did the Week 1 workout I did the Week 1 Challenge by myself. It was a tabata workout on the bike and I knew I would love it. All up this workout and the Challenge workout burned 500 calories. I will definitely be adding this workout to my personal cardio program.

Today has been a fairly big day of exercise. AM was  6k bushwalk with my dogs, followed with 30k bikeride. PM was the weekly workout and weekly challenge. Total calories burnt today 1570.
