Happy Monday! It was a pretty low key weekend and I really got some time to relax. Right now, I want to talk about how my week went health-wise.
Not a bad week overall. The stars are for days I hit the gym. Wednesday was weights while Thursday was C25K Week 1 Day 1. Yes, you read that correctly – I ran!
The running went pretty well. My foot just felt stiff but I had no bone pain like previously. I made sure to keep it to the 1 minute intervals and not push too hard (and hurt myself again). I am going to start Week 1 over again this week but it really felt good to run and sweat! The running part wasn’t even that hard. I guess I haven’t lost as much endurance as I thought!
I didn’t do as well as I had wanted to on the tracking. There was lots of snacking this week and less meals. I also find it hard to track due to the fact that I don’t measure when I cook. Yes, I know the success to weight loss is measuring food and counting calories. I don’t mind measuring a portion when I’m about to eat it. I just don’t like measuring every little thing as I cook it. I find it tedious and a little stressful. I tried to eat reasonable portions and listen to my body’s hunger signals at least. I think I am down a couple of pounds but I’m not “weighing in” officially on any websites until I see significant change (up or down, in pounds, BF%, inches, etc.).
I’m also not drinking enough water. That is normal (but still not acceptable).
That’s pretty much it for now. I must be off to get back into the grind of the school week! My goals for this week:
- Drink more water (60+ ounces daily).
- Track my food daily.
- Gym 4 times.
