This has been a rough week. I still haven’t regained my equilibrium from last weekend. I’ve been a moody, emotional mess. My three workouts this week? Every one has been a drag.
To recap the week:
Monday: No workout due to a long talk with B followed by dinner and a movie to find balance.
Tuesday: Aborted Jillian Michael’s workout due to almost passing out during it.
Wednesday: Ran 1 mile in 7:22, aborted the strength training due to being tired/hungry/moody.
Thurdsay: No workout due to date night with B.
Friday: Ran 1 mile in 6:50, completed 250 crunches, 30 squats, and 20 lunges before I pulled an arm muscle and quit.
Wednesday and Friday were my most successful days. I am right proud of those two runs. My goal is to slowly (haha) work up to running 1.5 miles at the same pace, than 2, etc. I want to be able to run 1.5 miles in 10 minutes come Spring. That’s about how fast B can run it and anything he can do – I want to do too. (Excepting the whole carry a 50 lb gun on a 10 mile hike straight uphill, he can keep that military crap.)
Weight: 156.7 (-.3lbs)
Hips: 37.5 (-1.5 from last week, -2.5 overall)
Abs: 36.5 (-.5 from last week, -1.5 overall)
Waist: 27 (same)
I have no idea what my body has been up to. My eating habits are better, but they weren’t great this week. I barely worked out, didn’t feel any of the workouts and I come out with results like this.
We have a new fancy-dancy weight/height/bmi/body fat machine at the gym. I messed up the body fat measurements (stood with my arms bent at the elbow instead of straight out) so I’ll retake those on Monday. Even as it came through, 24% I’m pretty pleased. It puts me at the top end of the “Good” range for my age group. The ranges are excellent, good, average, and poor. My plan for now is to use the machine once a week as it gives much more accurate weight results than the old clunker scale in the locker room. Downside is that I have to weigh with clothes on, still, I’m reporting that weight and not trying to figure out how much I can knock off for my clothes.
How go your workouts? What works best for you – dramatic or gradual change in habits?
