It feels so good to finally have gotten in a solid week on my goals.
Movement Goals: Three strength training workouts, one interval run. Try a yoga podcast. Bonus point for taking a walk.
I did not get a run in. Every time I went to it started thundering and I just didn’t want to run on a treadmill. Although sprints were part of one of my strength workouts (more on that in a minute).
I skipped my workout last Friday to test drive my new car. Saturday night I went to EverProven CrossFit for Ladies Night Wine + WOD.
Sunday I rested. I was going to take a walk to loosen up my muscles but then it started to thunder so I took it as a sign.
Monday I did Superheroine Fitness Episode Three Adventure One. Holy awesome sweaty workout Batman! I even forgot to take a selfie!
Tuesday I made it back to yoga. I don’t even want to think about how long it has been. It was a sudden last minute decision and it was exactly what I needed. Funny thing, I really wanted an active power class and when I got there I was a little disappointed to see a sub who tends to be a bit more on the flowy spiritual side. It turned out to be exactly what I needed and I was all smiles on the way home.
Wednesday I did Superheroine Fitness Episode Three Adventure Two. Bru-tal! Of course it didn’t help that I wound up doing 97 yard sprints instead of 50 yard sprints. (I did one lap of the indoor track.) I have officially met the moment at which a solid understanding of algebra would have come in handy. Although, in my defense, by the time I got to that part of the workout I was pretty spent from the first half hour or so. The best part? I’m going to keep doing the 97 yard sprints each time to compare.
Nutrition Goals: Not drinking alcoholic beverages more than three times per week. With the warmer weather HH and I have taken to chatting over a glass of wine, which is nice but not something I need to be doing every evening. (Note that I amended this to 4x per week.) Make a pitcher of decaf iced tea or infused water to chat over instead. Eat protein and produce at every meal. Take the hour or so one day to meal prep.
I did really well. I had wine on each weeekend night and then again on Thursday. I ate produce at most meals and had fruit with snacks to make up for the produce-free breakfasts. I got HH to make me turkey burgers for my lunches so meal prep was done (even if not by me- yes!). I did have a bit of a summer treat though. (Can you believe this was a small?!)
Mindset Goals: I’ve been trying to get back into my meditation practice for a while now. This week I commit to finishing the Take 10 from Mindspace. (I’m not going to mention how long ago I started it.) I’ll also check out that yoga podcast.
I’ve pretty much decided to let this goal go. I’m just not ready for it. Granted by saying that I am pretty much guaranteeing that I will be meditating next week. Such is my funny little brain. Although that was a great yoga class. Maybe I’ll make it to yoga this weekend.
At this week’s weigh in I was down 1.08lbs fat and up .48lbs lean mass. There’s some movement in the right direction! This brings my totals with these goals to a loss of 2.65lbs fat and a gain of 1.65lbs lean mass.
Maybe I should buy my health coach a glass of wine;-)
Any progress or goals you’d like to share?
