It’s Day 15. This is the last week of the challenge. You on board? To help you finish strong, I’ve created an itinerary for the final week. Save it. Tack it near your desk. Do it.


Day 15: Goal Check

1. Goal. If you haven’t met your goals for the last two weeks, I’d suggest modifying your goals. I like your ambition but if your goal was to do cardio every day and you only went twice, then you need to change your goal. It could be that the goal isn’t possible for you at this point in your life. Don’t feel bad. Move on. If you haven’t met your goal, change the goal or make it doable, meaning, you are going to do it!

2. Water. Drink half your body weight.

Extra Credit.
 Yes, you have the above weekly schedule but you will need to come to the site for the extra credit. I will post something new (and different) each day.
Prizes. I’ve selected a winner from each week of the challenge. Winners were chosen based on frequency and quality of replies. The winners from the 1st and 2nd week will be announced tomorrow morning. There will also be a winner chosen for this week. Be that person! All winners get their choice of prize.

1. Yes, monday night jumping was the inspiration for this goal 😉

3. You’re right, it’s para. Es bueno para *el cuerpo. This blog is educational on so many levels.

Sandy · 07/31/2013 at 12:30 pm

OH! And did an insanity video, while incorporating your abs exercises you had posted one day. (Um, couldn’t finish the video with 3 minutes left on the clock.)

Sandy · 07/31/2013 at 12:25 pm

I’m allll sorts of late, but I set them already, so:
1. Actually play with my kids in the pool instead of talking on the sidelines.
2. Don’t go two consecutive days without working out.
3. Go outside at dusk and play with my kids. (Which is what my husband normally does because I get attacked by mosquitos).
4. Not eat any yummy treats made by Carrie (in this post). ;o)

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 9:00 am

@Elena. Oh, you are right about clutter! People underestimate what an energy block it is. Important goal.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:55 am

@Darlene. I’m glad you appreciate the itinerary. There was carpel tunnel involved.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:55 am

@Amy. Go, Amy Go! (That’s me yelling.I know you can hear me.)

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:54 am

@darlene. The next time you walk circles around your car, will you please videotape it? I’d like to watch it when I have a bad day for a good laugh. 🙂 But yes, it counts. A step is a step.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:53 am

@Rachel. You had me at “the kitchen is freaking CLOSED Pearl.”

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:52 am

@carrie. How’s it going so far?

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:51 am

@Slomo. 1. Whoa. There was jumping in MOnday’s workout. Be easy, darling.
2. Importante.
3. Es bueno para un cuerpo. (or por?)

This is one of your best responses. I’m proud of you for pushing yourself to invest in yourself.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:49 am

@Slomo. Thanks. It took hours to create. smh. All for you stinkers.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:49 am

@Emily. Glad you like the itinerary. I want everyone to succeed.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:48 am

@Darlene. Is this real!? You are doing incredible. Such progress. I feel like a proud mama.

Angel · 07/31/2013 at 8:47 am

@michelle. You did it once you can do it again this week. I’m cheering for you. Here’s a great vegan recipe blog for more inspiration for you!

Michelle N. · 07/30/2013 at 1:45 pm

I did 3 vegan days last week and I’m going to do it again. I felt great and I had to get creative to find ways to change up the routine and still get the food groups that I needed. Let’s see if I’m as motivated about it as I was before. Fingers crossed.

Angel · 07/30/2013 at 12:44 pm

@Danielle. You have a lot on your plate. Be as compassionate to yourself as you would to a friend in your situation. You’re doing what you can.

Angel · 07/30/2013 at 12:43 pm

@Darlene. You.Are.On.Fire.

Darlene · 07/30/2013 at 11:55 am

Yeah. I’m 2 for 2 on Monday.

Goal 1: 6500 steps at work. Check
Goal 2: 75 ounces of Water. Check.

Danielle · 07/30/2013 at 11:26 am

I totally needed to hear (or rather read) “It could be that the goal isn’t possible for you at this point in your life. Don’t feel bad. Move on.” I’ve been making myself feel guilty, and I need to remember that I am only human! So that being said, my goals for the week are as follows:

1) Ride my bike outside 1 day this week. I want to do more but I’ve taught twice this week, have 2 more classes to go, and will be at DCAC going to Schwinn sessions and more. I want to ride outside more but I think that would be a bit too much to ask this week.
2) Go to the pool Weds, Thurs, and Sun for some tri training
3) Run 3 times this week, including an 8 mile run
4) Do about 15 minutes of cleaning each night. My house is dirty. It makes me sad.

Angel · 07/30/2013 at 10:36 am

@Roxie’s mom. These are great goals. YOu know what’s ahead and potential obstacles. And you preparing for them. Smart!

Roxie's Mom · 07/30/2013 at 10:32 am

I’m moving not one but two apartments into our new townhome this week and weekend so my goals are going to be more nutrition based so I can be prepared for this weekend.

1) Track and plan out breakfasts, lunch, snack, and dinner. Keep to calorie count.
2) Bed time by 11 pm every night this week (hopefully earlier!) to rest up for move weekend.
3) Suck down that water!

I’ve been doing about 75% on the first two goals, and pretty decent on the water on work days.

Emily P · 07/30/2013 at 8:19 am

Thanks so much for the itinerary! My goals for this week are to attend workout classes 3 times and to go to bed before 10 pm. I drank half my bodyweight in oz yesterday (and was peeing all day)! 🙂

Slomo · 07/29/2013 at 11:48 pm

Creating the itinerary was genius, by the way. ES

Slomo · 07/29/2013 at 11:47 pm

My goals for the week:

1. I will not run or jump (knee is not ready).
2. I will schedule at least 2 doctors’ appointments for next week (I’ve been putting this off for over 3 months).
3. At least 2 hours of yoga (I can’t afford classes right now, so I need to do it on my own or with videos, which is really hard for me).

These may actually be harder than my previous goals, but I think they are smarter choices. I’m choosing them because I’m not confident I’ll do them without the extra motivation that the challenge, and you all, provide.

Nomi · 07/29/2013 at 10:07 pm

I am adding meditation to my goals this week!

Carrie · 07/29/2013 at 9:50 pm

Work out three times this week and get more sleep!

Victoria · 07/29/2013 at 9:42 pm

Goal – 30 to 40 minutes of cardio at least 4 days this week.

Water – Done.

Rachel · 07/29/2013 at 6:36 pm

Ahem, my CONTINUED goal is to not eat past 8pm this whole week. My success rate for this was 50/50 last week – I get up early and start the day great, then I get knee deep in work, go home, get distracted and don’t start roasting cauliflower until 8pm. Tisk tisk. The kitchen is freaking CLOSED PEARL. I have to eat early, then GO TO BED. I’ve had tons of water and currently have to pee, I only yelled at my bf a tiny bit and will NOT YELL this week at all. All the challenges got done too (I can’t believe that) and I’m looking forward to more workouts (can’t believe that either!). I’m fairly busy all week so I am planning all workouts TODAY (written out on a week at a glance dry erase calendar that tracks healthy fun stuff only (it helps!)) and I’m also PLANNING not to FREAK OUT ABOUT IT; just be cool and make time to sweat. No biggie. My legs feel really strong, standing here now, I just feel like I can kick ass. Sweet. I mean NO SWEATS! Thanks ANGEL!

Darlene · 07/29/2013 at 6:27 pm

Goal: 6500 steps today 7AM to 5PM my workday. I had to walk around my car a few times to get to 6500. Does that count?

Amy · 07/29/2013 at 5:31 pm

It’s home stretch time. 3rd week goals: continue to track all food and beverage intake, break 9 minutes for my baseline workout mile, and do something to make myself sweat every day. We can do this!

Darlene · 07/29/2013 at 3:57 pm

Perfect! Loved seeing the weeks itinerary. Love it!

Goal: The same—6500 steps at work each day. The first week I was 1 for 5. Last week I was 3 for 5. This week I’m going to be 5 for 5! Always close but not quite 6500. I got a “Fitbit” pedometer that’s a blast to play with and is helping with my goal.

Water goal. Check (yes Angel, I’ve had 75 ounces of water already today!)

Elena · 07/29/2013 at 2:26 pm

old goals: i made the breakfast goal form the last 2 weeks, not so much with pilates goal.
New goals: keep doing the healthy breakfast goal. Adding a de-clutter goal as I’m overwhelmed with stuff in my house preventing me from focusing on healthy and active things. Every day this week I will put one out of place thing in it’s permanent place or throw it out/donate!!! Clutter free home = clutter free mind = more energy for good stuff.
