2. Your current week’s weight as well as your challenge start weight. *optional
Challenge Start Weight : 193.5
Last Week's Weight: 191.5
Current Weight: 193.5
*The gain is very frustrating to me, because I continue the cycle...The week after my period I gain, then drop down to 191 or 190 in the following ,only to move back up again!!! Grrr...But I will just keep on keeping on...eventually I will break this cycle...I MUST!
3. Your goal(s) from now, or whenever you decide to join, until December.
Goal 1: 200 tracked workout miles...(treadmill, street runs,biking,elliptical,swimming,etc)
22 Miles tracked this week: 6 treadmill, 15 cycling, 1 summit trainer. This puts me at 60 miles so far in the challenge!
Goal 2: 5k in under 40 mins - Starting Couch to 5k again working on speed during run interval :Week 3 finished.
Goal 3:Journal food 5days a week- I did mostly paper and pencil journaling this week. The week was busy, and I would spend my free time at night doing the shred rather than logging on to Spark to journal in my food for the day. Next week, I need to get back to the Spark...I think my calories were on target, but taking the time to spark ensures I don't go over, or at least makes me aware if I do and I can make corrections.
Goal 4: Do something each week to make myself feel gorgeous. I did the shred each day...the Shred makes me feel strong and when I feel strong I feel gorgeous!
4. ONE thing that you are proud of for the week.
I am really, really proud of my workouts this week. They were tough and I hung in! Keeping my speed up is getting tougher, but I am so proud that I am hanging in there. I know when I complete a 5k in the fall with a new PR these tough workouts will be worth every ache! I was stoked that on the last 2 days of Level 1 Shred I used 5lb weights. I felt tough! HAHA :)
5. ONE thing that you can improve upon for the following week.
Honestly, seeing the gain on the scale this morning put my head in a really bad place. I was grumpy all morning to the point that my husband made a comment about my mood. This week I need to remember why I am doing this...I don't workout hard each day to see a certain number on the scale...that's not what this is about for me. I need to focus on how I physically feel. I need to focus on the rush I get after a great workout. The number on the scale does not determine my week, my workouts do :)
