Welcome to another Weekly Fitness Update, where I recap the week’s workouts and any other miscellaneous health/fitness-related thoughts. Thanks for helping me keep myself accountable :)
Monday: See my post from this past week.
Tuesday: Sore sore sore! But worth it.
- 25 minutes on the elliptical /1.6 miles and 145 calories burned
- 50 crunches (varied)
- 25 squats with a 6lb kettle ball
- 50 various arm/upper body weight lifts with a 5lb dumbbell
Wednesday: Still sore! I worked late so I had to take a rest day. I did do some stretching though, and I think this would be a good day for yoga in the future (or spinning, or barre, etc) :) I also ate pretty healthy with a granola bar and coffee for breakfast, and sauteed baby kale and new potatoes for lunch, plus water.
Thursday: Worked REALLY late (until 8) so it just didn’t happen. :( Rough week.
Friday: Date night with Mike to celebrate our 2 year anniversary so no workout & did eat a couple treats. But it was worth it :)
Saturday/Sunday: Nothing nada zip. I don’t really have any excuse for not working out other than putting priority on other chores & things I needed to do (like getting ready for vacation). I’m bummed at myself but hope to make up for it while I’m on vacation.
So, remember when I told you I spontaneously registered for the Cleveland Marathon 10K?
Well, it’s officially less than 5 months away (which for you regular runners probably seems like a long time away, I’m sure), but for me it’s time to get in gear for some pre-training training, ha.
I’ve started to look up some 10K training programs to get myself in the mindset, but for now I just need to get back into a routine of working out 4-5 times per week. Of course, this week had to be a busy week for me to re-start getting my fitness routine back… and now the holidays are coming up, so I don’t expect to fully start until the new year. (Do I smell another excuse?) …But I am planning on running outside while I’m in South Carolina for Christmas, and THAT I am excited for :)
Have a happy, healthy week & check back next week for the next Weekly Fitness Update!
