It was a good week! I ran a little over 15 miles last week. 🙂 I followed Week 3 of a 10k training program (I’m not planning on running a 10 this year, just want to be able to run 6 miles on my own). My longest run last week was 4 miles. Woohoo!! I’m well on my way to meeting this goal!
I’m not sure how many pounds I lost last week-I always weigh on Monday mornings so I’ll post about that tomorrow.
I lost 2 pounds so I am now at 133.4!! Yippee!!!!
I did “ok” on eating 2 veggies and 2 fruits each day. Actually, I did better on the fruit part. That part is easy-I just make sure I have a banana or apple with me. The veggies part is what I’m going to have to work on. I usually take a sandwich with me to work, and it’s too much of a hassle to take veggies with me. 🙂 So I guess I’ll just make it 2 veggies at suppertime! 🙂
I feel REALLY good about what I did accomplish last week. My 2nd longest run was 3.83 miles this morning. I think I could have kept going, but we had planned to work out in the yard today, so I felt obligated to end my run. 🙂
I tried a new meal today that I saw on someone’s blog (and can’t for the life of me remember which blog it was!). A turkey wrap with the following:
Whole wheat tortilla
2 slices deli style turkey
It was DELICIOUS!!! I mean-OMG! I had never had hummus before, but now I am addicted. I think I will try to get up a little earlier a few days a week and make this to take for lunch. AND it is so low calorie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here’s a picture of the ingredients-forgot to take a picture after I made it. I guess I was just wanting to eat it too much! 🙂
The mini-challenge for this next week is to try a new exercise. I’m going to do this in 2 different ways. I found an April challenge over at Shrinking Jeans that works your legs and rear (Goodness knows I need this!). So I will be trying burpees and wall sits which I have NEVER done before. 🙂 Also, I’m going to try and insert some HIIT training into my routine each week. This is a combination of high intensity exercise with moderate/low intensity exercise. I found this in a SELF magazine for their Drop 10 plan.
I have tried to recruit some people to run with me and have been pretty successful-There are about 4-7 people who are now training on the Couch25k program. 3 of them have injuries right now so they have had to rest and will hopefully be back soon. 🙂
Shanda ran 2 miles with me Friday after school-she only walked a few times and not for very long. I think she is on Week 7 so she should be able to run 3 miles with me before long! 🙂
Here we are after our 2 mile run Friday:
Friday night I went to a “Blackout” zumba-it was so much fun! Saturday morning I went to a regular zumba class. Then spent the rest of Saturday at the softball field watching my senior “baby” girl play. Here she is at bat.
Oh yeah, Friday we had our annual snake show at school. The seniors always get to go out and hold the BIG snake, so Taylor dressed up to go out and hold a snake. SMH. 🙂 Here she is.
AND last but not least, here is a picture of us goofing off last week.
OK. Goodnight. 🙂
