Total Loss since 3/1/10: 35 pounds
Today, I'm feeling: Awesome, like I felt when I was steadily losing, (until I stopped in June).
Here's what happened last week:
After a brief weekend stay at a resort (eating decently), I went back to my disciplined steps of counting calories on sparkpeople.com and exercising often.
Highlight of the Week: Friday morning, I went out early to exercise, which I haven't done in a long time...I hate it. So, I just told myself that it would not be strenuous, just long. I walked 5.5 miles in 90 minutes. Time consuming, but not difficult. Then, at the end of my workday, I was so energized (and it had just rained, so it was cool) so I ran my 5k loop. I did a 2-minute walking warm-up, then ran most of the distance with a few walk-breaks. I did it in 38:38! A personal-best for me! My previous time was just above 40 minutes.
Food: Since Tuesday morning, I have eaten about 1,730 calories per day.
Liquids: Lots of water and green tea.
Exercise: Walked/ran about 17 miles in the past 5 days.
Confessional: Solid this week. No deviations from plan (well, since I went back on plan on Tuesday).
My Goals for this Week:
• Continue to pursue goal of 275 weight by September 6th for Mrs. Clyde's iTouchallenge!
• Short-term goal is to be at 285 by 7/31...I know I can hit that!
• Cardio will be walking/running/cycling for at least 5 days this week.
• Maintain about 1,700 daily calories of good healthy food.
Question: Should I keep track of my weekly mileage, or set goals for it...or should I just make sure I am doing something each day? What works for you?
Make it a good week everyone!
