I am going to try to get back into weekly blogging as much as I can. I get super busy and forget to blog sometimes but I want to be more accountable and keep myself on track.
So the past week was a really fun week for me, but not so good when it comes to fitness. My son turned 1! We took him to the Cleveland Aquarium on his actually birthday and then out to eat. Then yesterday was his party. I had a huge cheat day and really messed up with my healthy eating. Waaaay too much cake and candy and chips and other stuff. I didn't even weigh myself today because I know I'd be depressed. On the upside though we did have a huge family kickball game and I did a lot of running chasing after the ball. Not enough to make up for what I ate but at least it helped a little.
As far as my running goes: I ran 30 minutes straight the other day! That is a new record for my. I kept my speed between 5.0 and 6.0 the entire time. I'm super excited about being able to run that long and soooo close to my goal of running and entire 5k.
In other news, my friend joined Planet Fitness with me and I am so happy about that. We've been walking outside together for a few months now but I feel like I don't get an intense enough workout in when we just walk. The gym offers soooo much more. Today we hit the gym and I burned about 900 calories doing cardio then we did strength training on our legs and butts for about 30mins. I will be feeling this tomorrow I'm sure!
I've decided I'll be eating totally clean and healthy for at least 3 weeks with no cheat meal to kind of make up for going out of control yesterday. This isn't a punishment for me, I just want to rid my body of all the sugar and junk I put in it yesterday. I have really noticed when you eat like crap you feel like crap. I don't wanna feel like crap!
My workout plan for the rest of the week:
Tuesday - Cardio- elliptical 30 minutes
ST arms : 30 minutes
Walk outside with my friend 60 minutes- easy pace
Wednesday- Jillian Michaels - 6 week 6 pack DVD
then some extra ab/back work
Thursday- 45 mins cardio at the gym- at least 20 running nonstop, then walking at an incline
Friday- interval training - running 7mph 1 minute alternating with walking 4mp 2 minutes and repeat for a total of 30 minutes - 30 minutes elliptical
30 minutes arms
Saturday- 45 minutes walking at an incline
30 minutes abs/back
As far as my eating.. no special plan just staying between 1400 and 1800 calories/day, plenty of protein and veggies- all clean healthy foods!
I'd like to see at least a 2lb loss by the end of the week. Let's do this!
