I STILL haven't gotten my tree and Christmas stuff down. Procrastinate much... yes, I do. That is next on the agenda (I pinky swear!)
But I did feel like I had a very good week and I just hope the scale reflects that on Wednesday.
Food - I logged everything this week and came under each day. I'm still not eating all my exercise calories but I did up my limit to around 1450 and that seems to be working pretty well for the time being. On heavy exercise days, I have eaten into them some, but not too much. Overall I'd say last week was my best tracking week in a while. So that's a good thing I suppose!
Meal planning is there. Cooking ahead is really hard for me to do but we try to make big enough meals for leftovers. Plus we did buy some sandwich stuff as filler on the days that we don't have lunches. I did buy this nifty little dry erase board to hang in the kitchen (once hubby does that..). So there's no doubt as to what we eat on what day. (Friday's we usually eat out so that's the reason for the big ?)
Monday - 50 minutes elliptical; 60 minutes bowling (not pictured)
Tuesday - 30 minutes elliptical
Wednesday - 65 minutes elliptical; 18 minutes weight training
Thursday - 30 minutes elliptical
Friday - 45 minutes elliptical; 60 minutes Physical Therapy (not pictured)
Saturday - 35 minutes elliptical; 20 minutes weight training
Sunday - 26 minutes walking
The bad - No yoga again. I've got to find a way to fit that in.
The good - CONSISTENCY! FTW! This streak is really helping! No joke! 18.44 miles traveled this week!
The better - I'm finally feeling like I have my groove back, just like Stella. Exercise doesn't bother me that I have to do it anymore and I'm finally back in that mindset where I was before October. Now just get me back to running and regular walking for exercise and tennis, then I'll be on top of the world!
I have a follow up with my Orthopedic Doctor tomorrow. Maybe I'll have some good news there about the Plantar Faciitis. I'm down to only once a week with Physical Therapy and the P.T. told me the other day that we have a little bit more work to do but I can definitely tell that it is working. If you have nagging pain, please consider getting some physical therapy, people and do your homework! It's made all the difference!
As a tiny side note to this, I've decided that I'm going to wait until after Comic Con to get my new running shoes and shoes for tennis. (If I get green-lit for doing those things..)
I had fun on my snow day, Friday and managed to get the house clean. Even decided to go shovel a little snow at some point (don't kill me, Northerner friends!)
Oh and to end this post on a sad note.... My fitbit flex finally bit the big one. It's not holding a charge at all.
