Week 1 recap
Sunday, June 12, 2011
Week one was a success all the way through. I am feeling great and I am enjoying working out and running again.
Lets review my goals for the week and how well I did at achieving them.
Goal 1; 30DS every day and 3/4k run
I did much better than that. My body felt like it wanted to do more than just the 3/4 k run.
Monday and Tuesday: I did the 30DS level 2 and ran about 4k each day
Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday: I did 30DS level 3 and ran for about 1 hour/10k
Saturday I did 30DS level 3 and ran about 6k
Friday was a restday as I was cleaning my whole house top to bottom so I thought I can get away with it.
I think I can be proud of myself for over-achieving. I am feeling great and fitness-wise I feel as good as I felt before the holiday. What wonders a little kick in the butt can do.
I have not been tracking my food as I tend to get a little obsessive about sticking to a certain number of calories. I try to do intuitive eating and eat when hungry and stop when full. I am also eating fairly clean again and cut out all processed foods and sugar and alcohol.
I did eat out last night with my husband and had a pint of cider, I confess but I only had a main, no starter or desert, stuck to just one pint of cider and the rest of the day I had salad, fruits and 2 whole meal, high protein blueberry pancakes. All in moderation....works for me.
The plan for this week is:
Exercise Mon-Fri strength and cardio, trying to keep up with last weeks amount of exercise
Mon-Fri eat clean
I will take the weekend off from exercise as I am flying out to Germany for a friend's wedding (hence the need for quick results getting back into shape) While travelling I will try and eat as healthy and clean as possible, Saturday night I will indulge a little and also have a few drinks, Sunday I will try and not kick into hangover-stuff-the-face-mode but pick my foods as thoughtfully again as possible. This should not cause too much damage and sabotage my diet/exercise program.
What are your plans this week?
