I had a really good week. Stayed within my calories, drank all my fluid, did the Running Room Clinic 3x, 1 extra run with Leigh, 1 extra run by myself and 60 minutes of Yoga and I walk every day at lunch for half an hour – the walk calories I don’t even count. The other exercise calories I do track in MFP but I don’t eat them.
Total loss this week……0.1 lb. Total for the challenge, 5.0 lbs.
After years of this I know the scale doesn’t always follow the lifestyle immediately but I was disappointed. I know it will catch up next week. I work really hard to lose 1 lb a week and when I don’t, it feels like the Universe is kicking me in the teeth. The good thing is, I’m still alive and kicking, I can still keep working at chipping away this fat and there’s nothing holding me back.
Plan for this week is to keep doing what I’m doing.
Stay within my calories and points, drink all my fluids and exercise at least 4 times.
I have a long weekend getaway coming up in May and I know I won’t get much (if any) running in those 4 days so I’m trying to make as much headway as I can in endurance before I go. The run on Friday night felt really good, we did our first set of 4/1 (4 times) and although I always find the first set to be difficult, until my legs warm up, the run was actually good. Breathing was good, feet were good, legs were pumping – it was awesome.
Tomorrow morning we meet again and then Monday night, Wednesday night and Friday night. Saturday is Yoga and I will probably run on my own either Thursday night or Saturday as well. Tomorrow I am hiking or running with my sister while Easter dinner is in the oven. Its easy to be so active when the weather is so nice and when I have good company!
