Wow, what a week!
Maddie ran a fever for 4 days straight last week of around 104, and went through two antibiotics til we found the one that would combat her strep throat. The poor girl was a mess, day and night, which really left no room for my work outs. I mean come on, I was not choosing a run over holding my sick child. My fitness is important to me, but not over my family, never.
So, even though I didn't work out much, I did try to watch my water, getting in my 64 oz as well as watching my vegtables and fruits. I'd set a goal of 3 fruits and veggies a day, and happily, I was able to meet that goal most days. http://www.mypyramid.gov/ recommends I get in 2.5 cups of veggies a day with 2 cups of fruits. So, I wasn't too far off on what I truly did need.
My workout schedule is changing up a bit this week. I'm going to start adding swimming to the mix. Due to some hellaious shin spints that I accquired last week, I think my legs need a quick break from running and a nice soak in the water. :) I'm actually really excited about it. Oh, and speaking of running, I got my long run in yesterday @ 5 miles, the farthest I've run so far. Next week I'll hit 6. I don't see a major problem until around mile 7, then I think my body is gonna go into a freak out spazz and refuse to function after running for 1.5 hours. Yeah, I figure it will take me 2.5 hours to complete this half marathon, can you imagine running for 2.5 hours...I picture myself laughing during this race, wondering why I thought it would be so easy. :)
Anyway, starting weight: 186
last week's weight: 184.5 (I'd gained about 4 pounds)
current weight: 182.5
loss/gains: 2 pounds
Ladies, I hope you all had a great week, have set realistic and fun goals for this week, and are having a blast changing your bodies!!
