  • Sunday – visiting my two daughters at boarding school and sneaked in a 40 minute walk with them this afternoon.
    Monday – 55 minute Snow Leopard this morning before a day on the road. Great start to the day!

  • Was a very long, busy week at work. Got to the gym with my wife for a circuit session on Thursday. 45 minute session on Saturday afternoon – 3 rounds of the following: 3 minutes skipping, 3 minutes boxing, 5 minutes kettlebells. So all in all a good week!

  • I think one of the issues we’ve been having is that my younger son (age 4) has gotten himself kicked out of the gym day care on multiple occasions. I’m trying to work on a system of rewards/punishments so that he’s motivated to behave as misbehaving causes his desired outcome (mom gets him out of childcare).
    You’re right – I can plan more trips…[Read more]

  • Hey Jen!

    I think Scott has nailed it on the head really.

    When it comes to family time it is difficult to keep on top of training because you probably want to chill with your husband and kids or do something you can all enjoy together.

    A few suggestions I have which might help you:

    1. Try to incorporate the family into your workouts

  • Jennifer, from my experience there is no easy way to fit training in around work and family commitments. It takes discipline and commitment. All I can suggest is that you schedule this training time as sacred time for yourself and stick to it. Also, when time is tight, I find that to put together good training weeks you need to aim for at least…[Read more]

  • Tuesday – long day at work. Home late. Nearly talked myself out of training, but then I repeated to myself twice “Anything I do is better than nothing. Anything I do is better than nothing.” So I trained. 40 minute heavy kettlebell session. Felt much better for it!

  • I think you’re right – I do need to keep on the sleep.
    I gained 4 lb back, but that’s not surprising with the drinking & cookies I consumed.
    Saturday I did a primarily upper body workout with the hubby + 2 sets of leg press followed by 35 minutes on the treadmill at 75% HR.
    I’m not traveling this week which makes workouts tough. When I’m home I’m…[Read more]

  • Wednesday was a travel day so didn’t train. Thursday and Friday were pretty hectic (and physical) at work so I couldn’t fit a session in. Saturday was a 7 km walk with the dog and a big day working in the yard.
    This week started well – one hour heavy kettlebell session with my fourteen year old daughter who goes back to boarding school tomorrow.…[Read more]

  • Even after a night of excessive drinking you still managed to get your workouts in the next day!

    Dedication to the max! Very impressed Jen 😀

    Keep up the good work and have a safe journey home!

  • No workout Thursday and excessive drinking instead.

    This morning I did a 2.5 mile run followed by the full body Intermediate HIIT workout 3 sets each of 2 circuits. I’m shakey. Got in 2 slices of bacon and some oatmeal for breakfast. Will travel home tonight.

  • Tomorrow I’ll try to rest, but may feel compelled to move some how. Thursday morning I’m planning on doing the full body with cardio.
    As my weight watchers plan is auto connected to my Fitbit, I get extra points for steps. So I’m highly incented to keep the step count high.

  • Last week I did lower body week 1 at the gym + 20 minute run then flaked out Fri-Sun.
    Last night week 2 upper body workout with 20 minute run.
    Today started with 2.7 mile street run then lower body.
    Need to track food better.

  • Monday – travelling most of the day. Squeezed in a 20 minute walk.
    Tuesday – hotel gym whilst holidaying with family. Snow Leopard plus two x 3 minute skip and two x 3 minute row. 7 km walk with the “better half” this afternoon to help celebrate our twenty year wedding anniversary!

  • Monday – travelling most of the day. Squeezed in a 20 minute walk.
    Tuesday – hotel gym whilst holidaying with family. Snow Leopard plus two x 3 minute skip and two x 3 minute row.

  • Sunday – 8 km walk and a TravelStrong Playground workout.

  • Instead of the golf we hired push bikes on Friday!
    Saturday – rest day.

  • Friday – 50 minute Honey Badger with 2 x 16 kg kettlebells plus 4 x 3 minutes skipping. Hope to sneak in a game of golf today too! Good way to ruin a walk…

  • Wednesday – thirty minute walk. Light day.
    Thursday – 45 minute kettle bell conditioning circuit and a 10 km hike today. School holidays with the kids and family!

  • Hey Jen,

    Great work to stay committed to the programme even when you’re busy with work! 😀

    Remember, the aim is progression, not perfection.

    I completely agree that feeling fitter and stronger and being able to fit into the clothes you want is a lot more important that your actual weight 🙂

    Congratulations on that achievement already!

    Keep up…[Read more]
