I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. My weekend was filled with some highs and lows. I got in a great workout, my brother and nephew came over Saturday night which was a blast, and I spectated at an 8K race my mom participated in – followed by an epic nap. I also visited my grandma and grandpa to show them my new car. My grandma is having a tough time with her chemotherapy so any prayers you can send her way would be much, much appreciated. The lows? Well, I’m back on OK Cupid. If that tells you anything. (More on this in the coming weeks. Still trying to wrap my head around everything.)
Onward to my weigh-in post!
Monday – Rest day.
Tuesday – Workout A of BBB, Strength & Cardio Burst Supersets, 3 rounds. New workout goal: be able to complete an entire minute of high knees.
Wednesday – Stationary bike (15 min), elliptical (15 min). I wanted to do 45-60 minutes of cardio but my arches started cramping up. I have still been wearing my high-arch insoles but I have since switched them out because I think they cause more problems than solutions.
Thursday – Workout B of BBB, Strength & Cardio Burst Supersets, 3 rounds. Let’s talk about my hatred for mountain climbers for a minute here. I would rather do 20 burpees in a row than even a few seconds of mountain climbers. Hate, hate, hate. Effective, but lots of hatred for that exercise.
Friday – Rest day.
Saturday – Stationary bike (20 min), then Workout C of BBB, Double Ladder workout. Basically fell to the floor in a heap of sweat and breathlessness at the end of this workout. Killer.
Sunday – Rest day.
Goal A – No sugary snacking. Fail. I ended up snacking 4 out of the 7 days. Emotional eating at its finest!
Goal B – Eat 3 servings of fruits/veggies a day. I didn’t track this goal as well as I should have, but I know I didn’t meet this goal every day. This is an area I need lots of work in.
The Goals… for this week
Goal A – Eat 3 servings of fruits/veggies.
Goal B – No sugary snacking.
I gained 2 pounds this week, which is not all that surprising for me. My workouts were subpar for the most part and I went a little nuts with eating my emotions. When a boy breaks your heart, well, I think it’s A-OK to break some of your food rules for a week. But I’m back on track this week, broken hearts be damned.
This was an okay week for me. I know I need to cut down on my sugary snacking and start eating more meals at home. While I’ve been meal planning, I haven’t been great at sticking to my plan. I’m lazy, okay? I despise cooking and will do anything to get out of it. But sometimes, you have to do things you don’t want to do to get results you really want to get. Nobody said this journey was going to be rainbows and butterflies all the time!
The gain on the scale wasn’t too surprising, but still a disappointment. I know I can do better!
