Weekly Workout Blog - Week 69
A few things have changed this week. For one, I started the Couch 2 5K program. As the Disney Princess Half-Marathon is something that I'm seriously considering, I thought I should learn how to run/jog. I don't plan to run/jog the entire thing..... in fact, I'd mainly walk it.... but, I do need to train and C25K seems like a good start. Plus, it will get me on track during the holidays.
Another thing is that I got weighed and measured, yesterday. In the past month, I didn't lose any pounds or inches, but according to the little meter thing they do, my body fat is down. My circuit trainer said that one (or both) of two things is probably happening.....
1) Fat is turning into muscle and things are shifting (for example, my pretty much non-existant butt is getting a little bigger while my stomach is getting a little flatter)
2) I'm not eating enough. Despite about 3 or 4 cheat days this past month, I'm really restrictive on how many calories I eat and count everything. She suggested increasing my intake by about 200 calories a day to see if that will help.... she thinks my body is holding onto whatever it can.
Britt........... does that sound right?
Sunday - Nothing
Monday - Curves, 15 mins Elliptical, and 30 mins Treadmill (C25K Week 1, Day1)
Tuesday - Curves
Wednesday - Nothing
Thursday - 15 mins Ellitptical, and 45 mins Treadmill (C25K Week 1, Day 2 plus 10 mins walking)
Friday - Curves
Saturday - 15 mins Ellitptical, and 45 mins Treadmill (C25K Week 1, Day 3 plus 10 mins walking)
I'd call it a success! Maybe it's all in my head, but I feel better..... like the running/jogging is helping. It's not easy, but I'm doing it!
Goals for this week:
- Track ALL food
- Curves for at least 3 days
- Couch 2 5K, Week 2
- Elliptical at least twice
