30 by 29 Week 7

Another week has come and gone. And a few things have changed, but that darn test got in the way of a few things šŸ˜¦

(Goal is to lose 30lbs by my 29th birthday on July 16th)

Week 7: stayed the same


need to get this down!


Nutrition:Ā  Horrible.

Much better this week, especially since one day I couldn’t eat for 24 hours. My stomach was not happy about this, or the after. It isĀ still hurting me today.


Workouts: OKKKKKK

I didn’t get in good workouts, but I do go three days this week, and that is my goal! next week, PICK IT UP!

  • Saturday: 20 min elliptical + 30 min rowing workout
  • Sunday: off
  • Monday: 12 hour shift
  • Tuesday: off for belly tests
  • Wednesday: 12 hour shift 20min row + 15 min bike
  • Thursday: 12 hour shift
  • Friday: 20 min elliptical + 10 min rowing


Sleep quality and duration:Ā  Good

This is probably the only thing I had going for me this week, but it was a million times better. It helped me deal with the stress.


How I was feeling:Ā stressed

Between the tests, sick babies in the NICU, and more stressors, I was feeling very overwhelmed come Friday.


Things I did well: sleep

Things I need to work on: workouts and weight lose!!!

Question for you:

How are you dealing with this LONG winter?

How do you get workouts in when it is cold and snowy?

Rowing workout #2

The past week or so, I have been in LOVE with the rowing machine at the gym. And the great thing about it, is each day I feel a different body area that gets sore from rowing! This week, my back was feeling it! That is why I made this workout, so that I will strength my back AND my abs.

I know that somedays, my abs are mighty weak and I can feel it in my back. I also know that at work I can slouch over the computer, so I want to get those muscles working!

crossfit rowing 2

I was feeling this workout and sweaty at the end. That is 24 minutes of rowing! So for each 1250m row took me about 6 minutes. It broke up the workout, because I COULD NOT row for 24minutes straight (at least, not yet!)

Question for you:

Do you feel that you have strong abs?

What is your favorite ab workout?
