Happy Memorial Day! I love this time in May and this is actually one of my favorite holidays. It’s right around my birthday (and sometimes even ON my bday), and its a great time to BBQ and get together with friends and family.
Unfortunately, my hub’s has to work at least a half day so we have no fun-ness planned for today. We are also away from my family, but I am sure they are decorating the headstones of my grand parents and remembering people who are no longer with us. That is another reason I love this holiday, they are gone, but not forgotten!
When the hub’s gets home we are going to go to the big city and return my sports bra’s that I bought online from Lane Bryant. A total bummer considering that I am in DESPERATE NEED of a new sports bra, and already had to wait a week for them to get to me! Although, the active tank top I bought fits, and it is a size smaller than what I have been wearing so, yay!
I Killed This Weekend
This is the first time in a LONG time that I kept on my eating plan for the entire weekend. This may not be a big deal to some, but for me it is HUGE! Hopefully it will make a difference come Friday when I weigh in. I weighed and measured everything I ate, and when we went out for lunch on Saturday I got a salad with no cheese and fat-free dressing. I was eating to live, not living to eat.
I stuck to my running schedule, and I am proud to say that I did ALL of my runs outside! The difference between the treadmill and the pavement is like night and day. It feels freeing to have my lungs and legs pumping and I’m happy to report that my times have gotten better, and better all week. They are by small numbers, but progression is the name of the game and I can’t wait to see my progress in the upcoming months.
Also, I’m switching my weigh in day to Friday. My little monster has gotten quite vocal about me being on the computer while she is awake, so I’ve decided to cut back on posting a bit, and only post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday will include goals for the week and my workout plan, Wednesday will be What I Ate Wednesday (I love those posts and will never give them up), and Friday, which will be a weigh in and hopefully some inspiration to get me though the weekend.
This week is pretty much more of the same with my workouts. Running on M,W,F,S, and then a 60 minute walk followed by a 20 minute strength training session on T, TH.
I’m hoping to see a bit of a difference on the scale this week. I have decreased my workouts to under 1 hour, and have stuck to 1400 calories a day. I’m trying really hard to not eat back any calories that I have burned, but in order to do this I’ve had to cut some of my workout so that I wasn’t constantly hungry. Seems to be working so far!
Have a great Memorial Day everyone!
