Food - Normally after each weekly recap that I do, I usually say "oh well, my week was about 60 - 80% good". I'm pleased as punch to report that this week, I knocked it out of the park. I'm going with 95% this time around. I kept the beer drinking down to only 2 beers on 2 days this week (the 4th and the 5th). The rest of the week was water, water, water all the time. I also splurged once and had had Chinese food delivered Wednesday and that's it. Trust me when I say, that is HUGE. Chris and I cop out all the time when we "don't feel like" sticking to the plan or too lazy to cook after working/exercise. We'll either order Chinese or pick up Italian food from a deli close to the house. Other than Wednesday, we planned everything out and went with it. I even meal prepped more than just my lunches yesterday. Instead of eating those Bertolli's dinners on the nights that I'm busy with Tennis or Bowling, I actually made Mexican Crock pot pulled pork to eat instead of those frozen dinners. And I usually eat those 3x per week.
Crazy! I've been really mindful of what I've been eating and even stayed away from most of the 4th of July treats. With the exception of watermelon!
We shall see what the scale says with all of this. And I'm sure I'm going to blow this good week to hell with my birthday coming up this Saturday. Ah well, it happens.
Anywho, back to the recap.
Monday - 21 minute run; 45 minute walk; 60 minutes bowling (not pictured)
Tuesday - 1hour 36 minutes tennis; 15 minute walk
Wednesday - 65 minutes elliptical
Thursday - 1hour tennis *; 30 minute walk
Friday - 33 minute run/walk; 41 minute walk
Saturday - 25 minutes weights; 65 minutes elliptical
Sunday - rest
The good - Running 2x a week is much better than I've done in a good while. Let's see if I can get it up to 3x.
The bad - only 1 weight training
The ugly - Honestly, I have nothing really bad to say about this week. This was the most effort I've put into it in a while, so it just felt good all around.
(I forgot to update the garmin for yesterday's steps). But other than yesterday, I did hit my step goal every single day last week too.
The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. Chris and I went and spent the day Friday with my parents and aunt and had a great day. Saturday, I went to the gym and while Chris did the groceries, and then we just vegged out and got caught up with shows on the dvr. Sunday morning I watched the Men's Singles final at Wimbledon, tidied up around the house, played a little Diablo 3 and finished laundry. Oh! I also hit up a few sales this weekend and got some new clothes from Kohl's and Old Navy. Nothing exciting but mainly work stuff, although I did snag some $4.00 jeans from Kohl's. They are size 15 in the Juniors. I couldn't pass those up even though I can't quite fit in them now. Maybe by the time vacation gets here!
|Happy Independence Day, 'Merica!|
