Five months to go!
Welcome back to month two of our Six Week Wedding Shape-up, and if
it's your first time here, take a look in our archive for the first
month of our program.
Good work! How are you feeling? Now is the time to get out that
measuring tape and if you feel you need to - weigh yourself. You
shouldn't focus too much on weight loss yet. Increased muscle
tissue and fat loss may mean that you weigh the same or even more.
You may notice that your clothes are fitting you more easily, but
you will definitely notice the change in your mental health? Keep
up your journal writing paying special attention to how you feel,
how you're dealing with stress, and what you think you are gaining
from your exercise program. Remember: Check your target heart rate
about 15 minutes into your aerobic exercise.
This months list
Below are explanations of all the exercises you'll be doing this
month to add to the aerobics you have already started.
Stomach crunches:Lie on the floor -- you
may want to use a mat or blanket -- with your knees slightly bent
and your hands gently resting behind your head, elbows pointing
out. Using your stomach muscles only, slowly lift your chest toward
the ceiling, keeping your feet on the floor and your chin pointed
toward the ceiling. Lower your head until your shoulder blades hit
the floor -- but do not completely relax. Repeat.
Push-ups:Get down on your hands and
knees. Rest all your weight on your extended arms, and keep your
body straight. Slowly lower your chest toward the floor, keeping
your chin up, and then raise until your arms are straight again.
(You can keep your knees on the floor, but you should eventually
try to use just your toes.) Repeat.
Weeks #5 and #6 -- 40 minutes of
aerobic activity at least three times a week; 2 sets of 10 stomach
crunches; 1 set of 10 push-ups. Weeks #7 and #8 -- 40 minutes of
aerobic activity at least three times a week; 3 sets of 10 stomach
crunches; 2 sets of 10 push-ups.
Best of luck to you - keep up the good work and we look forward to
having you tune in next month.
