Well, even being a few days late, I felt the need to do a quick recap on last week's health and fitness routine. You know life just got in the way and I didn't get around to doing it on Sunday (or Monday). But for those of you that are helping me keep accountable, this is for you :-)!
Monday: Snow Day :-(. Although my Dad would have came no matter what, I didn't really want him out in the snow and besides that it would have required me to shovel 6 inches of snow off the truck before heading to the gym. So I gave myself a Snow Day!
Wednesday: 3.5 mile run, no weights. I was worn out. I even tweeted that that run felt like a marathon. So I ran and went home.
Friday: 3.5 mile run, light weights. I did 3 miles on the treadmill and then had enough nerve to try the indoor track. I ran a 1/2 mile on the track.
Saturday: I normally take the weekends off but for some reason I felt the need to go work off some pent up anxiety. I was stressed for whatever reason - could be the fact that I hadn't taken my BC correctly last week and my hormones were wacked out! I did 35 minutes of elliptical and ran a *fast half mile on the treadmill. *fast for me
I was HUNGRY all week, like the stomach growling hunger! Don't know really what was going on but instead of fighting it, I ate all. week. long!! And nothing really healthy either. I admit it! I pigged out. I ate healthy meals but ate dessert and snacks too!
I have continued to menu plan, but haven't posted for a few weeks due to the busy schedule and not having to cook every night!
Despite the fact that I had a fail week, I was able to lose a half pound. So my total weight loss so far is 8 pounds! At one point in the week, I lost an extra 2 pounds and was super excited until I realized it was due to the previous stated BC mix up. I tend to lose around 3 pounds of water weight at the beginning of my "cycle" and by the end I gain it back. Oh the joys of BC!
Your turn! Let me know how you are doing on your "healthy" goals! I want to know what things are working well with you and what things aren't! Let's do this together!
