I was very optimistic that my weekly fitness update for this week would be an amazing, awe inspiring update.
But it didn't really turn out that way.
And I didn't lose any weight.
I am going to decide to be okay with that!!
Here is what I did accomplish this past week:
Wednesday - I rushed home from work, grabbed Shawn, and he made our way to the gym for a quick workout. I got in 2.5 miles on the treadmill before we had to run home to get Heidi for a lesson. While Heidi was at her lesson Shawn and I walked Cupcake around the parking lot 3 times.
Thursday - this was my bust of a day where we went out to Skyrobics but did the class was full. You can read all about that and what we did instead HERE.
Friday - we took the kids swimming at the local pool. When we swim with the kids I try to be as active as possible and not just bobbing around in the water.
Saturday - I was able to carve out time at the gym and got in a 3.5 mile run.
Sunday - I arrived at the gym at 5;15 pm all ready to get in a good weekend ending run only to find they close at 5 on Sundays! What a bust!
Monday - Shawn and I went to the gym and I got in another run. 3.75 miles this time and I trimmed 1 minute and 30 seconds off my 3.5 mile pace. I was so excited! Then I did my Monday Ab circuit at home which consisted of:
50 jumping jacks
20 tricep dips
15 (each leg) lunges
30 second plank
Man was that hard after running 3.75 miles!
Tuesday - I walked Cupcake about 1.5 miles and did the Tuesday Ab circuit at home which consisted of:
80 jumping jacks
50 vertical leg crunches
20 sit ups (I do crunches)
15 tricep dips
10 (each leg) side lunges
15 (each leg) leg lifts
15 wall push-ups
40 Russian twists
Overall I feel really good. I know that I didn't lose any weight because I didn't watch my food as closely as I should have. Here's hoping next week is a better week so I can hit that 12 pounds before Hawaii goal. 1 down, 11 more to go!
