This week I am starting Week 1 of the #IHeartOmron Fitness Ambassador Challenge. I’m super excited. I’ll tell you a bit about my plan and about my first set back.

#IHeartOmron Plan

Exercise Plan

I will be following the fitness plan that @MrBookieboo has set up for the challengers. I will be following the 5 day plan because I also have my Bootcamp on Saturday mornings which will be one of my rest days on the Omron Challenge plan. I will have one real rest day each week where I will do no exercise because I need to give my body the rest.

I will also be using the Omron HJ-323U connected pedometer to get in 10,000 steps/day.

Eating Plan

For my eating plan, I won’t be following a particular diet. I will be tracking my food daily as I have always done on SparkPeople staying within 1200 – 1500 calories/day.

All good plans always have setbacks, but we can’t let those stop us. I came home from CES with a nasty flu and I have been in bed since Friday night. I am not letting that stop me on this challenge. I’m being sure to drink lots of fluids and eating what I can. My plan is to get right on track as soon as I get well. Hopefully by Wednesday, I’ll be able to do the workouts and I will use Monday and Tuesday as my rest days.

Having a plan for setbacks will help me get right on track rather than giving up.
