Thursday, March 26, 2009

I had a wonderful run this morning and I am now off to the vet as my dogs eye is not doing well. I think some of his stitches came out, I am not sure what the vet will say, but I hope he will be ok. I have once again pre-logged my meals for the rest of the day so that I can accomplish all I need to do today and stay on track! I made some yummy pinto beans with grilled chicken breast and stone ground jalapeno cornbread for dinner!!

Reach high today!!

Great job with the workout and pre-logging your food!

    Wow. You keep track of lots of detail.

I just started running and I am surprised at how few calories I burn. I feel like it should be more, but it sure does open your eyes to what goes in your mouth.

Do I really want to workout that long in order to burn off that one slice of (fill in the blank.)

I am currently doing the couch to 5K program and I am in week 3, day 2. I downloaded podrunner intervals from i-tunes and it changes bpm with a chime in between so you know when to walk and when to run.

I'm hoping to do my first 5k in July. I've already done my first 2 mile race last weekend. My time was 21:20 and I got 2nd to last out of 26 people. But at least I didn't stop to walk!!! That was my only goal.

Love your inspiring words.

I am here! Sorry that my posts have been off lately. I am doing well this week, we just have allot going on. My dog had surgery on his eye today to remove a cyst on his eyelid. Bless his heart, he is so out of it tonight. In addition to this we have been in the yard everyday until sundown working on getting our gardens ready before the rain and storms set for this week. So I have been active, very active and my eating has been good, but I am finding it hard to be online as much as before. Today was great, I ran outside after working in the garden. I pushed it hard and my knee felt good, no pain.

I will try and get back to posting my detailed fitness logs asap, but for now just know that I am doing great, staying strong and being VERY active in every way!

3/24 - Run outside with sprint intervals with walking warm up/sprint recovery/cool down
Time - 37 mins
Calories burned - 414
Calories consumed - 1,600

Work hard, Reach high!

    I hope your dog is doing well after his surgery. Poor thing! Also, it's great that you're staying active even though you aren't posting your every move on SP. Sometimes, you just need to let go and live life. Good for you for doing it on your own!

Oh my, Jen needs a rest day....

Friday, March 20, 2009

My legs are really feeling Wednesday's workout. Those touchdown single leg squats worked my glutes BIG TIME! Thanks to Cathe and STS for showing me those! I decided to take the day off and just work in my garden. I will replace my run for today with a run outside tomorrow, but I need today to recover. I feel amazing though! I am super proud that I pushed it hard and accomplished all my goals. In 4 days I worked out for 418 minutes and I burned 4,539 calories! In addition to that I logged my meals and was able to stay on track with all my meals. In summary, I am very pleased with my first week back working out since our move to the US. One week at a time, I will reach my goals for 2009!

Now, my focus must shift to next week and what goals I want to accomplish. Below is my workout schedule for 3/21- 3/28 -

Goals for the week -
1. Burn 5,000 calories
2. Drink 1 gallon of water each day
3. Take supplements each day
4. Complete 300 push ups for the week

Saturday 3/21 - 45 min run/walk
Sunday 3/22 - Day off
Monday 3/23 - AM run 20 mins. ST full body with 45 mins of cardio.
Tuesday 3/24 - AM run 20 mins. PM run 20 mins.
Wednesday 3/25 - AM run 20 mins. ST full body with 45 mins of cardio.
Thursday 3/26 - Day off

    Way to go, Jen! I think it's definitely a great idea that you're taking a rest day and still being active by getting out in the garden. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Rest is SO important, so enjoy the day "off" (gardening is exercise!). Isn't it great when you have a week where everything goes right?! Have an awesome weekend!
