Sunday Fitness Update by Craig Kerbrat

Hey! It's Sunday, so it's time for my weekly fitness update. And I actually did something fitness-y this week! So that's fun! Check it out below! 

August 9-15

  • Workouts: 0
  • Run Training: 2
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 32
  • Top Steps: 13939
  • Starting Weight: 77.1 kg
  • Ending Weight: 77.8 kg
  • Change: +0.7 kg
  • Total Change: -0.6 kg

So I didn't get in any gym workouts, but I did go running twice. It was actually pretty nice to get out running again. And I improved my pace a lot between the two. There was still a lot of walking involved, but I didn't feel nearly as out of shape as I thought I would after not running for so long.

I also did a little better with my challenge this week. I did my ten push-ups 6 out of the 7 days. I forgot on Monday when I went for my first run. Interesting fact: the push-ups have still not gotten any easier for me. I'm going to continue with just the ten per day for now, and maybe increase it later. 

The only thing I'm mildly concerned about after a good week, is that I was off work all week so it was easy to just go for a run when I felt like it. Now that I'm back to work, am I going to feel like doing anything athletic before or after work? I'd like to think yes, but I'm worried. I know me. I know I have been struggling to get up early, and after a long day of work and transit, I'm usually feeling pretty tired when I get home. So I need to figure out how I'm going to motivate myself to keep up the momentum. I guess that will be my project for the week.

Anyway, that's what I've got for the week. Thanks for reading, and have an awesome Sunday!

It's a new week, so that means it's time for my weekly fitness update! There's not a lot to say again, so let's get right to it.

August 2-8

  • Workouts: 0
  • Run Training: 0
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 25
  • Top Steps: 14804
  • Starting Weight: 77.8 kg
  • Ending Weight: 77.1 kg
  • Change: -0.7 kg
  • Total Change: -1.3 kg

I'm going to start with the challenge I set for myself last week. I decided I was going to do 10 push-ups every day, and then look at increasing the goal each week. I sort of forgot about the challenge barely into the week... I did fine on Sunday and Monday, but totally forgot on Tuesday, so I did double on Wednesday to make up for it. But then I completely forgot for the rest of the week. So this week I'm going to try again with the 10. I'm setting myself a reminder in my phone to hopefully help make it happen. 

I have kept up both my steps streak, and my streak of no other exercise outside of that. I'm off work this week, I took a week of vacation time so I can relax and recharge. I'm thinking this might finally be the week I get back into the groove of things. If I want to go to the gym or go for a run, I can do it anytime. I don't have to get up ridiculously early, so it seems like a good week to get the feel for things again.

And that's my weekly update! Here's hoping I've got something more exciting to say next week!

Alrighty. These Sunday Fitness Updates have basically become updates on what I'm not doing to keep fit. I know I'll turn it around eventually, but so far, I'm keeping with the trend. 

July 26-August 1

  • Workouts: 0
  • Run Training: 0
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 18
  • Top Steps: 20992
  • Starting Weight: 78.7 kg
  • Ending Weight: 77.8 kg
  • Change: -0.9 kg
  • Total Change: -0.6 kg

I didn't run, I didn't work out. It's been so hot and it just saps any motivation I might have. I need to figure out a way to get over it and stay active even when it's warm, but I haven't figured it out yet. I did keep up my steps, and my streak is almost at three weeks. That's something.

I've been thinking about ways to push myself to be active throughout the week. I was thinking about starting small with a push-up challenge. Doing ten push-ups a day for a week, and then slowly increasing it. It's an idea to challenge myself and get me back into the mindset of getting fit, even if it's just a small push to start with. I've started with today, and I'll continue through the week and see how it goes! 

And I think that's all I've got to say for this week. I started this post this morning and nearly 12 hours later I'm finally finishing it. Anyway, have a great week!
