It has been SO nice to put one foot in front of the other in a speedy fashion. Oh running how I have missed thee!! Still easing myself back into it, but it feels nice none the less. Here are the workouts for the last week...
July6: Elliptical 40min, 8.6mi, situps 50x3
July 8: 2.5mi 'mill run, 27:15 (in my old shoes), sit ups, planks (75,70, 65 seconds), week 6 day 1 of the 100 pushup challenge
July 10: 4.5mi run, 48:24 (10:45 pace) in my old shoes, Splits: 1(11:08) 2(10:33) 3(10:44) 4(10:26), .5 (11:07 pace)...it was quite humid this day but I am thankful I got out before the ABSURD heat set in
July 11: 1.45mi 'mill hike (3-10%), 25:00.....4.65mi tempo elliptical, 20:00....lower body weights (only used 5# weights as its my first time coming back to lower body weights in 2 weeks)....sit ups/ planks (75,70, 65) and week 6 day 1 of the 100 pushup challenge. PLUS I managed to squeeze in a 10mi bike ride before putting the kids to bed! YAY!!!
July 12: 3mi 'mill run 31:30 (new shoes), upper body weights, 3x70 crunches (the 2nd set was alternating knee twists-I did 140 of those so it would be like 70 per side)
With not running for all of the last week, and not really watching too closely what I was eating, I put on 4#'s !! I was so discouraged as I was ONE pound away from my goal of 100#'s. PLUS my mom made FRESH zucchini bread for our yard sale last weekend and *I* made snickerdoodles, so needless to say 1 or 42 of them got eaten by me. No seriously, from the time I got up on Saturday until dinner I ate and ate and ate (all zucchini bread and snickerdoodles!!) whoops.
I was 105# Sunday morning and really watched what I ate that day (day ended w/ a total of around 1,230 calories) and I was 104.8 the next morning (Mon)....did well again yesterday (a little higher though-ended a little over 1,400) and I was 104# this morning so I am hopeful I can get back down to 101 in a week or two.
I've been trying to eat healthy meals, which usually isnt a problem for me, its just all that inbetween meal snacking!
Here was my snack yesterday:
1/4c 1% cottage cheese, about 1/2 a cucumber, a few baby carrots, 4 cherries, and 1/2 a nectarine (holy buckets that nectarine was SOOOO good!!)
I am hoping today to keep the calories under 1,400, though under 1,300 would be even better =)
Hope you are all doing well with your fitness and nutrition goals!
