HBBC Week #2 Recap

Week #2 of HBBC is in the books. I did well this week; although not as many workouts and points as last week. I did manage to increase my whole Freggies intake as opposed to just from whole fruit and veggie juice. And I did meet my goal. I want to build on this base and continue to meet my goals in the rest of the HBBC.

HBBC Week #2 Roll-Up: 
Miles Run/Walk: 4.07
Strength/Core Workouts: 3
Yoga Practice: 7
Group Cardio Workouts: 1
Days w/ Complete Freggies Intake: 7

Total Weekly HBBC Points: 36.57

Finishing up yoga, followed by foam rolling

Week 2 Goal: Practice at least 20 minutes of yoga daily

I managed to practice at least 20 minutes of yoga each day and I really do feel like it's slowly making a difference with the pinch in my back. I am focusing on opening up the hips and hamstrings and I think that is making the difference. I just have to keep it up this week. 

Surprise of the week: I started craving whole fruit opposed to the gummi bears and sour patch kids that I've been craving. (not to say I haven't stopped craving those). We went to a party on Saturday and they had a huge fruit tray - I ate half of it and took the other half home (ok, that's a little dramatic). But it tasted SOOO good. So, I picked up some fresh berries at the store today and already ate a whole box of blackberries today. (I guess the baby likes fruit - good news)
Extremely dry-rotted straps=
no swimming today

Week 3 Goal: Swim! I decided a few days ago this would be my goal. I planned to start the week off right and swim after BodyPump this morning, but while putting my things together, realized my goggle straps had dry rotted! Yup, I'm ashamed to say that I haven't swum in over a year! So, I quickly ordered Matt and I some goggles tonight and we'll be back in the pool soon...hopefully I will be later this week so I can meet my goal! (I know I'll be relying on swimming in the next 4 months to help relieve some back pain and get some low-impact awesome cardio in).
Did you set and stick to any new goals this week? Have you found yourself actually craving your Freggies and not just eating them for points? :)


  1. Great job on your week! I am working on getting more yoga into my week. And generally, I do crave fruits and veggies, but this is a tough time of year for eating well!

    1. Thanks! It is making a huge difference by just getting that 20 mins of yoga in per day!

      And the fruits and veggies clause in the HBBC is THE reason I joined this year! I needed the motivation. :)

  2. Great week! I carve fresh freggies (love that) all the time so it's the points I'm craving right now :)

    I'm struggling with my nightly stretching goal. Ugh! It's so important and yet it's the first thing I drop when I'm short on time. Trying the same goal this week!

    1. Haha! Yup! I'm craving the points too!

      I am normally terrible at stretching regularly; one of the reasons I became a yoga instructor is so that I'm forced to! Crazy, I know.

  3. Great week! My yoga practice has taken a slide recently but I'm recommitting! I like the 20 minutes a day idea. Doable for any schedule.

    I craved fruit (specifically pineapple) like crazy when I was pregnant. No wonder both of my kids eat it like crazy still!

    1. Angela, the 20 minutes has been awesome. I just focus on a few poses and either do it after my workout or at night in front of the tv!

      I am now craving mango! I had it Saturday night and I wanted to eat it ALL. Probably because someone else had peeled and chopped it! ;)

  4. Ooh so happy for the swimming! I hope it went well!

    1. The swim was great...eventually...but it is going to take some consistency to get my mileage back up! However, I was so happy that I got back in. Thank for the encouragement! :)
