Isn't that the truth? Had a bit of a rough day at work. Felt some tensions...could've been imagined, but it was definitely a stressful day. I was glad to be home and get some cuddles from the cat.
When Randy got home, we went to the gym. He ran 3 miles and I went to zumba. My body is sore, especially since I went to kickboxing yesterday. It' been a minute since I've been to a class, and two in a row!
After the gym, I talked Randy into ice cream. *Sigh* Ice cream has been hitting the spot though. But I've been working out so I feel that its okay to have some ice cream. I need to curb this habit though.
I recorded what I ate today for the first time in awhile. I must be going over 1200 because aiming for it today felt rough. At one point I felt really shaky and sweaty. So my body must need more than that right at the moment. I would really love to lose 5 more lbs/go down one more size. I am focusing on toning so the weight is less important.
One thing is for sure: I haven't slept like I did last night in a long time. I need to continue these hard work outs because I really needed the deep sleep.
Yesterday the fam and I ran a little over a mile at an average pace of 12 minutes and 17 seconds.
Today I went to zumba for 45 minutes, came home to clean up the dog's mess, so then decided to go back out for another run. Despite the fact that I felt exhausted, I ended up shaving 1 minute off my average pace and completed a mile at an average pace of 11 min and 17 seconds!!!
This week Randy, Cam and I are planning on running a mile 3 times (every other day), and then next week running 2, then the next running 3.
Then we should be able to work on shaving off time. I am hoping to beat my last race. We only have 5 weeks to repair but It hasn't been TOO long since I stopped exercising so I don't think I will have to regain that much ground. I AM EXCITED TO PROVE THIS TO MYSELF. :)
My goal: I am going to try to get down to 140. I don't know if this is unrealistic because the body fat/composition test that I took said the ideal "me" would be 137lbs (muscle). Which means PEAK physical fitness. But I will am going to try really hard. I am at approximately a size 8 and 5'4" so I believe I could go down one size and would be happy.
I am currently at 145ish. Right before the wedding I was hovering between 142-143. I will have to really re-focus on my eating habits.
Then I will maintain...unless we try having a baby.
The wedding came and went so fast!!!! June 1st was the day we got married. The day was wonderful. It didn't rain like forecasted which was awesome since we got married outside. Every thing went smoothly. Randy forgot our vows but our pastor just inserted his own thing and every thing turned out okay. I felt like a princess and had so much fun the entire night.
We then drove down to naples FL on 06/02/13. We got there on 06/03 at approximately 10PM. It rained on and off the entire week we were there but we still had an awesome time. We went "treasure" (sea shell) hunting every day, went to the botanical gardens, chased lizards/frogs/crabs/birds lol, saw dolphins, caught up with randy's cousin, etc. (we also ate a lot of food!!!!).
TO my surprise I am down from what the last weight I recorded on here was. However that was about two weeks before the wedding. I think I am up about two pounds...I think the lost weight was actually muscle so that's not good. I am trying not to stress about it though. I will get there. :)
We started running as a family today for the 5k we are running on july 13. We ran a little over a mile for our first run and plan on increasing it. I could've done more but it was raining hard.
