Shrinkvivor – Week One

Today begins Week One of the Shrinkvivor competition. This morning as I sat at the table drinking my smoothie I saw a blog post pop up from Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans (host of the contest) telling me it was time to submit my starting weight for the challenge. I had already hopped on the scale, and had Paul photograph it, bright (or I should say dark since it was 5am) and early so I quickly ran off to the computer and logged in my info. Yes! Step one finished! This morning I weighed in at 217.2 pounds, same as yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier! Please note that you can see my frog tattoo on my foot- that is a great way for me to prove that it is me on the scale and not someone else. Yay for verifiability!

Next we were asked to blog about our results and then link our posts. Unfortunately, wordpress does not allow the javascript code for the blog hop so I am going to do my best to link up but I am not sure it will work. Ugh, the downfalls of the tech unsavy. We’ll see what happens. Here are two links to try. Let me know if this works 🙂

In the post they also told us what our weekly physical challenge would be and for this week it is tracking our exercise minutes. Since this is week one and I don’t have much to talk about that you haven’t already heard in previous posts I thought I would share with you my planned activities for the week so I can see an estimate of my exercise minutes. I am not sure if the week starts today and ends next Tuesday but that is my assumption.

Wednesday:

Yoga 12p-1p – 60 minutes

Combo Class (1/2 boxing, ½ boot camp) 5p-555p – 55 minutes

Kickboxing Class 6p-655p, technically 55 minutes but when we do back to back we don’t have to do the first ten minutes of jump rope – 45 minutes

160 minutes

Thursday:

Nia 530-630p – 60 minutes

Qigong 645-8p – 75 minutes

135 minutes

Friday:

Nia 530-630p – 60 minutes

60 minutes

*I wanted to note here that this weekend we are learning a new Nia routine, Cadence, so in Friday and Saturday’s class we will dance the routine. Then on Sunday there is a 1 hour workshop where we will have a more in depth learning and review of the routine followed by another class where we will dance it again. I just wanted to point this out because four hours of Nia in one weekend is not typical.

Saturday:

Nia 930-1030a – 60 minutes

Yoga Seminar 11a-1p – 120 minutes

180 miuntes

Sunday:

Journey Dance 10-1115a – 75 minutes

Nia Workshop 3-4p – 60 minutes

Nia 4-5p – 60 minutes

Kundalini Yoga 7-815p – 75 minutes

270 minutes

Monday:

Yoga 12p-1p – 60 minutes

Combo Class (1/2 boxing, ½ boot camp) 5p-555p – 55 minutes

Kickboxing Class 6p-655p, technically 55 minutes but when we do back to back we don’t have to do the first ten minutes of jump rope – 45 minutes

160 minutes

Tuesday:

Pilates 430-530p – 60 minutes

Nia 530-630p – 60 minutes

120 minutes

Total Estimated Minutes: 1085 minutes

Now let’s see if I can stick to the plan and survive it! 🙂

Thanks for reading!

    Wow, I am just so impressed with all you are able to do, I want to pass out just thinking about it 🙂
    I wonder if I’d be able to do a week like yours??? The frog on your foot is the cutest thing!! I keep thinking about my first tatto, where, what and when, hmmm. 217.2, wow ~giddy laugh here~

      You could totally do a week like mine. It looks like alot but it’s a really good mix of high intensity cardio (boxing), muscle sculpting and strengthening (yoga, pilates), aerobic (nia and journey dance) and intrinsic healing movements (qigong, tai chi) – it’s the mix of everything that makes it doable. I couldn’t box every single day but with this mix I can stay active every day 🙂
