Week 9 has come and gone and although it wasn’t what I had hoped it to be, weight loss wise, I am not letting my weight gain and missed goals stop me from trying again this week.
So how did last week go? Well, it started off strong but then got a bit crazy by the end. My goals for last week were to:
Complete week two of half marathon training – yes! Although I had to move the long run to Sunday I did not miss a single run this week
Train with M for the kids marathon- yup! We logged another two miles last week
Go to the gym twice with Anna- yeppers! Day 1 I did my warm up on the treadmill followed by a 5K on the rowing machine (in just under 25 minutes) and day 2 was 5 miles on the treadmill (as part of HM training)
Track everyday- Yesiree! Even when it got a bit out of hand and hard to remember (cough, cough – beer fest)
90K steps or more- Nope! I fell just over 5K short on this goal. I would have crushed it if I had kept my long run on Saturday. NBD, it happens. This week’s step count will be super high J
Try to limit how much I drink at the beer fest- Kind of…I probably could have been better, I definitely could have been worse. Actually, the drinking wasn’t really the bad part- the snacking and 10p dinner out was what got me and the scale showed it.
Ignore my weird sausage toes...LOL!
You see, I debated on whether or not to weigh in Friday morning instead of Saturday since I knew I would be out drinking and eating late Friday night. Friday morning I weighed in at 170.0 (a gain of 0.4) but I opted to not record it. Instead I weighed in Saturday morning at 171.4- a gain of 1.8 for the week. Eh, it happens. And it was kind of expected. It had been 6 weeks since my last gain, it was only a matter of time.
Emerald Coast Beer Fest- always a great time!
The important part- I just keep focusing on healthy habits and actions, even when life is tough. It’s no secret that I have been feeling a lot of stress lately. For me, now is the time I really need to be more conscious about the decisions I am making. Even though eating half a bag of tortilla chips and a tub of salsa seemed like a good idea in the moment (this happened Saturday) it only made me feel worse, physically and mentally. Sunday was spent recuperating from treating my body like shit but making sure I got in my long run, taking care of a ton of wedding stuff, meal planning and prepping, and a little relaxation on the beach (which was actually part of wedding stuff) helped to get my mind right.
View along my long run- the church where E and I will be married... <3
Vegan brunch at End of the Line- my favorite!
Gordie is my co-pilot...
This week there are some changes ahead which you will see in my goals…
Complete Cize Week 1 (yup, I am back at it. I loved it so much I just needed to bring it back into the routine)
Love me some Cize!!!
Complete Week 3 HM Training
Log 100,000 steps
Catch Up on Schoolwork – I am falling behind (which is so unlike me) and that is adding to the stress
