Week of January 14-20, 2013:
Current Weight: 157.0 (Up 1.0 lbs from previous reported week of Nov 5-11)
Total Lost to date (since September 2011): 63.8 lbs
I'm bringing back the Monday training updates to keep me accountable on the weight loss goals again. Of course, I restarted by failing to post it until Tuesday, does that mean that I need a time out or a slap on the wrist?
|Behind the couch is a good place for time out Mommy.|
I stopped reporting weight, etc. back at the beginning of November to focus fully on Goofy. Well, that excuse stopped flying once I completed it, right? Technically, since that last reported weight, I've gained a lb. However, I weighed myself the Tuesday after I got back from Florida and my weight was 161.0, so I'm okay with 157.0 I weighed yesterday morning.
I never hit my 150.0 by the end of the year from 2012. New goal is to hit 150.0 by my Colorado ski/climb trip tat the end of February. I'm actually finally making some dietary changes as well, as much as it pains me to admit it. LOL. A good friend pointed out the benefits of making a change at a time, rather than trying to do everything at once. So, my primary goal for the next month and half is to up my protein content. I do have two secondary goals: drink more water, eat less candy. For now, that is all I'm focusing on from a diet stand point. When I first started working with my current trainer and discussed how I was hungry all the time he told me that I was not eating even close to the amount of protein I should be with the amount of working out I do. We didn't want to make any diet changes so close to Goofy, so the time is now.
|But, Mommy, tortillas are delicious. They're still allowed, right?|
This is where companies benefit from donating to races. There were Clif Builder's Bars in the post-race food pack at Disney. Loved them! First protein bar I've ever tried that didn't taste like cardboard. My trainer isn't a fan of the amount of sugar they have though, so they'll be a more limited use item. I've also ordered a protein powder he recommended.
But, the new me title actually comes from my new hair cut last night. First haircut in about a year or so. LOL. I told the hairdresser I wanted a lot cut off, but it had to be able to still be pulled into a ponytail. I think I told her the ponytail requirement at least 15x, but I wasn't counting.
|It'll never look this nice again.|
My workouts last week were pretty light, and I'm actually proud of that fact. I managed to take 3 whole rest days post-race! HAHAHA! I did a light strength training (30 minutes) and a 3 mile easy run on Thursday. I took Friday off. Then, cough, I ran 9 miles on Saturday. I'd intended to run with a slower pace group and run less than the scheduled 9 miles for Pig, and somehow I did neither. Oops. I felt fatigue settle onto my shoulders after the first 6 miles, and knew I should have stuck to the six mile plan. It was an out and back, so I still had to go back. Luckily, it was LSD pace and only a few miles, so I didn't pay a huge price for that mistake. I took Sunday as an extra rest day as compensation. (I actually kept Monday as a rest day as originally scheduled as well.) Look at me all nailing the rest day!
Other changes in my workout schedules in the future? My trainer and I are moving to 60 minute training sessions (as opposed to 30 minute) twice a week. I also ordered a bike trainer to give me a cross train option at home.
|You mean these don't do anything special Mommy?|
How was your training last week?
What do you do to change things up in your workout routine?
Do you find it easier to make drastic changes or one thing at at time?
