The UV Project: 6/1- 6/5
(report back Monday 6/6)


What do you love to do for cardio? Get out and move a little each day, and do some serious cardio at least twice. How many minutes/what was the intensity for the past 5 days? (keep track for next week!)

I felt a little derailed this week. I had been using my little mantis tiller in my garden but overdid it a bit. I know they advertise those for grandpas and grandmas in the garden but its got kick and literally if you hit the gas fast enough its more like doing a bajillion back rows. So listening to my back I took it a bit easy.

I did get in Chalean Burn Intervals though last week and a run yesterday. I also hopped on my exercise bike a bit in between there.

Work your muscles:

Lower Body/Upper body/Core or a mix- Try to fit in 2 days of ST before Monday and tell us about it. (keep track of reps/weight for next week)

I would have to check but I think I only did one day of Chalean last week (the back thing). Burn Intervals has weight lifting incorporated into it. Still I didn't get quite the muscle workout I was really looking for last week.


If you’ve never tracked a bite of food, it’s time to start! It doesn’t need to be perfect but losing weight is a science. Tracking food (whether you go over or not) is vital to getting fit and healthy.

I will say I've done fairly well tracking. It most certainly hasn't been perfect but I do fairly well and I do eat better when I track.


Drink it! It hydrates you, curbs hunger, and makes your skin look fabulous! Have trouble remembering? Buy a 32 ouncer (Nalgene, Camelbak, etc) and fill, drink, repeat. Congrats on drinking 8 glasses!

YAY I do pretty good on this one!


Get at least 15-30 minutes of sun exposure 2-4 times this week. Vitamin D is essential for those healthy bones we are building (wear at least SPF 15) Reduce stress and enhance your mood with a 30 minute walk in your neighborhood!


Read a fitness article!

I've been getting that done also. I'm slowly reading through The Spark bit by bit every day.

    You are doing awesome!
    Usually water is really easy for me but for some reason I've been struggling the past week!
