February 2013 Workout Goals

I was doing so well with posting here almost every other day, but it has been a week since I’ve lasted made a blog post here at WokoutTipster.com. This past week has been a busy one for me as I’ve been working hard, working out, went to Buffalo for an NHL game, and have been preparing my sports betting site for the Super Bowl.

Anyways being a new month and finally having a little down time here on Saturday I thought it would be a perfect time to map out my February goals and take a look back on January.

January Goals Recap

I got in 6 workouts per week for the most part in January. There may have been two weeks that I only got to the gym 5 times, but I ended up getting a quick workout at home if I missed a workout.

My goal was to eat clean 6 days per week and have the one cheat day, but a few weekends in January I extended my cheat days to both Saturday and Sunday. I did a good job with my grocery shopping regularly to ensure I had healthy food throughout the week and that led to a lot of clean eating.

I did find a fat burning workout, and so far it has been going well.

I was planning on fasting on Monday’s throughout the month, but that didn’t go well. I fasted one Monday, but the others I just stuck with my healthy eating. I didn’t plan well for fasting on Monday’s and my intense workouts made it hard to fast. I also had a plan of only drinking 3 times in January and I ended up completing that goal going out 3 times.

I’ve been recording all of my meals and workouts so that goal is complete. My weight goal of 195 is a fail as I’m still sitting at 199. I’ve lost body fat but I’ve been keeping or even gaining my muscle mass because of the added protein and change in my weight lifting routine.

February Workout Goals

This month is going to be a little different than January as I’m leaving for Mexico on the 11th for a week. I usually take a few days off after a vacation to catch up on work so I’ll be away from my gym for about 10 days of the 28 day month.

My first goal is to workout 10 of the 11 days leading up to my trip. In Mexico the resort I’m going to has a really nice gym, so my plan is to get into the gym 2 or 3 times there just for light workouts to stay at it. My next part of this goal is to make sure I get back into the gym within 3 days of coming home and then going 5 or 6 days per week for the rest of the month.

Clean Eating. Before my trip I have two nights where I am allowing myself to have cheat meals and that will be tomorrow (Super Bowl Sunday) and the weekend after for my girlfriends birthday. Food and Super Bowl go hand in hand but I will try to keep the unhealthy food and beers to a minimum. Other than that I want to be eating very clean, with lots of protein, vegetables, and healthy fat meals and not many carbs.

Cardio 6 times before trip. This will include hockey (usually twice per week), but I want to do 6 cardio workouts leading up to my trip. After that I want to continue doing about 3-4 cardio workouts per week.

Ramp up the intensity for my workouts. My workouts have been intense lately, but I want to step it up even further and make sure I’m pushing as hard as I can.

Record workouts and all meals. Weigh 195 by my trip. Continue blogging here regularly.

Below is a picture of me and Ashley from last year’s February trip, and I’m hoping to be in the same shape for this year’s trip. I will of course post a picture after to compare!

    Hey, I need more help with my eating. Now I have always heard to eat 5 to 6 times a day. That is way to tuff for me to do. I am never ever really that hungry. I do of course always make it a plan to eat breakfast. I usually just eat breakfast, and a mid-lunch. I have started to mostly drink water. I am not fat, I just want to get that 100% beach body. I have had no kids if that matters at all telling you. I am about to be 30, and I am still single. Well hope to hear back from you, thankx…

      Hey Renee, eating 5 or 6 times per day isn’t necessary for everyone. The main reasoning for eating frequently is that it is said to boost metabolism, but there aren’t studies that confirm that 100%. The main reason I like to recommend people eat 5 or 6 small meals per day instead of the usual 3 meals is that it will help keep hunger levels to a minimum. When most people get extremely hungry they tend to make poor choices with their eating and sometimes crave unhealthy food. It also leads to over eating because your brain is delayed in telling you when you are full (even more so when you are really hungry).

      So if you can manage eating just 3 meals per day and making sure you aren’t over eating and are eating healthy foods then go ahead and do it!

      If you are looking to get a great beach body I would be eating clean 90% of time, cutting out all fruit juices, sodas, etc and sticking to water (can add some lemon juice from a real lemon), and then of course working out hard.

      Let me know if there is anything I can help you with, and good luck!
