2013, Week Three


Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Last week was good for cardio. I did two beach walks (Th. & Sat.) and other machine workouts several times (M & W) a week. I reached my goal of 60 spm for 15 minutes on the stair mill on Monday, but I was too full to do it on Wed. My morning snack needs to be lighter.

Additionally, I did two lower body strength training (Tu. & Sun.) sessions, and my shoulder is still a bit sore so I did no upper body training or swimming. Wah, I want to go swimming! Iím going to give it one more week of rest, as it is feeling better, and I donít want to push it and have to go back to only above water workouts.

Finally, while I did manage to log all my meals, I went over on the weekly average calorie consumption. Now, Iím at 50% for the year.

In analyzing why I ate too much on the days I went over last week, I see a few things. I did not sleep well on the nights before I ate too much. That magnified some aches and discomfort I was already feeling. Then, it was COLD, here in So. Cal. I'm simply not used to it, and I didn't cope well. Also, I simply had easy access to high calorie grazing fare. To remedy this, I need to sleep better and have better snacks on hand, and give myself a pep talk. Plus, the weather will cooperate and we'll get back into the 70's this week. Yay!

This weekís goals:
45 minutes of Cardio 3 x week (Tues, Friday, Sunday was only 40 minutes!)
2 x week lower body strength training (Saturday & Wed.)
Log Food at least 5 x week. (Every day.)
Plan good snacks 3 x week. (Needs work)

I managed to get closer to my calorie range this week. In fact, the average is just under the upper limit. Whew. Great!

    Great goals.
Glad you are tracking your patterns so at least you have some idea of what is going on and how you can prevent it.

Good luck this week.

    It's good for you to see the sleep-eating connection--I always forget it!
