My Leek Adventure. I've never cooked leeks. I didn't really know what they were!
But now, I have made Leek Soup!
My schedule has still been a little hectic with trying to incorporate 3 tennis leagues, half-marathon training, and then my regular strength and cardio training. I'm seeing progress with physique changes, down to 22.7% Body Fat, and losing inches, but I am not satisfied with my gym effort when I'm not training with G. I MUST STEP IT UP!
There's nothing like a support network and challenge to give the extra push toward your goals. On Monday, a group of my women's tennis teammates started The Sweet Spot Fitness Challenge: Tennis Sisters Finding Our Health and Fitness Sweet Spots.
In tennis, the "sweet spot" of the racket is the ideal place to hit the ball, thus producing a nice solid shot. This is the mission of the 90 day challenge. Each participant set their own fitness goals, and not everyone has a goal to lose weight necessarily. The main objective is to develop a healthy lifestyle so that we can improve our well-being and our tennis games! Goal setting and journaling (with food diary) are essential parts of this challenge.
I am excited about working on finding my Fitness Sweet Spot. I want the ideal balance of diet, exercise, and rest. I know the proper balance will help me reach my goals! Here are my goals for the challenge:
- 20% Body Fat
- Increase muscle mass
I will reach my goals by:
- Eating 100% clean, 6 1/2 days/week
- Strength training 3 days/week
- Performing intense cardio (non-tennis) 5 days/week
- Sleeping 6 1/2-7 hours sleep 5 nights/week
I know with discipline and consistency, I will reach my goals and will get Stripped--Sweet!
