TGIF! It's been a busy week around these parts, but we've also had a beautiful week of weather. I can't complain.
Here's my April Goals check-in:
- Track food at least five days a week. That would be better that I've done in a LONG time. I think I got 4 days done. Almost five.
- Run three days a week, training for 10K. Fail. It has been one of those weeks, where I was very productive, but have only exercised 1 day so far. PMS & TOM are to thank for that. Tomorrow I will be going for a run.
- Complete 1-3 days of the cross training listed on the training plan. Honestly, if I get four days of exercise in per week that will be the most I've done so far. I'd like to actually exercise all six days a week the plan calls for, but baby steps... I'd call this success since my only exercise was 1 day of cross training, but I feel kind of bad for that. If I happen to make time to exercise today then I'll have gotten two days of cross training in. Not counting on it though.
- Work on eating a little less (and thus see weight loss), but at least stay within maintenance calories. I'm not committing to a certain number of veggies and fruits, or no carbs, etc, because for now just tracking my food and trying to consistently stay in a healthier calorie range is a huge plus. Again...fail. Thank you, PMS and general malaise due to my monthly. It's not an excuse..just the facts. The good is that I counted my heaviest days and it was an eye opener to just what exactly I've been doing that caused my weight to go up. Kind of opened my eyes so to speak.
It's So, I've had a not-so-stellar week, BUT .... I have made strides with getting back on track. It's all going to be okay.
