Happy Weekend, my Friday Followers!

Yay - today was the final day of "All-Out Mayhem" at Orange Theory! I got an orange water bottle (gave to my hubby) and a cooling towel.

Apparently you wet the towel and then wrap it around your neck to stay cool during workouts - never heard of it but might try it!

The Idiot Box showed a new low today but I will wait for the end of the month to log it.

I am making shrimp tacos tonight - using romaine lettuce leaves for "taco" shells to avoid the grains and carbs.

AND, I picked up my new bicycle yesterday so we WILL ride this weekend! WooHoo!

Note to self: May 45-50/35-40/10-15-20

Short Range Goals:

* Movement down on the Idiot Boxes while retaining muscle by year end 2018
* Bodyfat % reading with trainer in late MAY/JUNE, 2018
* Drink at least 12-14 cups of fresh water daily - especially on gym days
* Continue HIIT mixed in with weight lifting four to five days a week
* Keep up the training notebook to achieve progressive overload

Long Range Goals: 2018/2019
*Bodyfat at 26% or less (Current 29.8%) by end 2018/early 2019
*Longer range body fat goal is 22% - which at my age is great!
*Maintain 160lbs staying under goal weight by end 2018/early 2019
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility during workouts

Glad you completed your Orange Mayhem workouts! LOL The only burpees I remember were my kids doing them in sports, and they used to try to outdo each other’s barf stories about them, so I don’t think I’ll be trying them any time soon. LOL You’re more than welcome to my share. 🙋🏻
