Week Review 11-09-09

Monday, November 09, 2009

My week ending yesterday...can't wait to hear from the rest of y'all!

Nov Weight Goal: 139.8 (-1.5 lb per week)
Mon 02nd 145.8 lb
Mon 09th 146.0 lb +0.2
Mon 16th
Mon 23rd
Mon 30th

I started a new workout regimen last week & suspect my body is adjusting to it. Hopefully next week I'll see a loss.

Week Running Goal
3 runs - 3 completed

Two short (3 mi on Horseshoe Springs & 2 mi on Mooney), one long (8 mi trail run @ East Fork)

Weekly Calorie Burn
Total 4006, averaged 667 calories burned over 6 days exercised

1230 Daily Calorie Intake (post calorie-burn)
Daily average 1249, only over by 19 calories per day

Yippee!! Happy, happy about this!!

Nutrition Goals
Fat goal 34-60: 69 daily average
Carbs goal 172-249: 233 daily average
Protein goal 60-134: 75 daily average

The high fat can be pinpointed to the Halloween candy I ate last Monday...I'm proud that I tracked every mini candy bar!

Exercise Time
7 hours 15 minutes, averaged 1 hr 15 min per day over 6 days exercised

I can maintain this average of 1 hr workout a day. SO doable & I'm feeling so confident & strong! The benefits are well worth the 1 hr a day.

Exercise Type
3 runs
1 trampoline
6 Insanity workouts (cardio & strength)
1 indoor bike

Week Completed
Wonderful past week! The best part? Mark is doing the Insanity workouts w/me. We all know the time it takes to get our workouts completed & often I would have to wait until the evening when the kids were in bed. Now having Mark sweat it out w/me is THE BEST thing about this past week & am hopeful that he'll stay committed to sticking it out w/me b/c I'm 1,000% focused & would love to have him right there w/me...good quality time!

The 2nd best thing about this past week? Colt's speech evaluation. I am so relieved to have an expert understand my initial concerns & to have this resource available to me is EVERYTHING. I just haven't known what to do w/him & how to best help him. This evaluation was a flood of info, tips & encouragement...all things I really needed. Now I'm waiting for their written action plan & look forward to upcoming home visits!

Week Ahead
Things to plan for.

Attending Addi's very first school performance this Wed, on Vets Day. She's been humming & singing Lee Greenwood's "Proud to Be an American". I'm already giddy, excited & SOOO proud of her!!

This is our LAST week before we take off for Indiana & Ohio to celebrate Thanksgiving w/family on both sides. SO very excited about this upcoming trip for many reasons:

it'll be the first time we've vacationed for this long (12 days!)

visiting family will provide an opportunity for Mark & I to go out on daily runs together, which he's already on board with!

spending Thanksgiving morning out among hundreds celebrating health & life @ Cincinnati's 100th 10k Turkey Trot (my first Thanksgiving race!)

attending my first college football game (Cincinnati Bearcats vs Illinois) to celebrate my brother's b-day

spending this much time w/our families...always, always, always a positive visit!

trying to keep up w/my nephew on morning runs who is running cross country this year

visits w/my mom-in-law & sis-in-law...AMAZING women in my life who I just adore to pieces

traveling w/Mark; I travel to visit family 90% on my own w/the kiddos (car & plane both), so this is a real treat to be going as a complete family

My workout schedule this week:

Mon - short run (2-3 miles), Insanity cardio power & resistance
Tues - Insanity pure cardio
Wed - short run (2-3 miles), Insanity cardio circuit
Thurs - Insanity cardio recovery
Fri - Insanity cardio power & resistance
Sat - long run (6 miles), Insanity pure cardio & abs
Sun - rest

Goal Count Down
Cincinnati 10k Turkey Trot, Nov 26th, 17 days to go!

I forgot to take pics last night but I will take some tonight b/c it's been a LONG while since I've taken full body shots & I want to have some good "before" comparison pics when I'm done w/this 60 day Insanity regimen.

    Wow are you busy! You definitely got a plan and are able to stick with it -- you go Girl!! Just had to comment on a couple of things:

    * Having your husband or SO workout with you is wonderful! It's so much easier when they are on-board.

    * Be prepared to cry when you see the whole class singing "Proud to be an American" -- it is such an inspirational song and seeing the little kids sing it is so touching.

    * The College football game will be awesome! We volunteer and drive the golf carts during the ASU games here in Arizona and it's CRAZY! Have fun!

    It's very motivational to read blogs like yours!
