So I lost another pound! Which is good, but I can't help thinking - "only one pound! - crap!"
So here is how I did with my goals last week:
- Three butt-kicking, 1,000 calorie burning workouts (incorporated into my regular workout schedule of three short runs, one long run, and two cross-training days). Goal met - I did my final long run of 8 miles which capped off my 3rd 1,000 calorie burn.
- Two strength work-outs Met
- Drink at least 48 - 64 ounces of water each day Easy peasy
- Stick to my 5-4-3 diet plan (no alcohol in the evenings because then I just snack) I did good on this until Saturday - I didn't totally blow it, but my sister and her family did come by and i did end up having some white wine (which hit me really hard - downside of not drinking much, or upside depending on how you look at it), so I ended up not eating as well as I should have, but not horribly. I did better Sunday, but I wasn't feeling so hot (white wine really doesn't agree with me), so I wasn't as stringent as I usually am.
My plan for this week is to keep to the above mini-goals for another week, only hopefully do better on the weekend with my eating. Plus I am going to shoot for 30 miles of running this week. I don't know why because that will be a little tough to achieve. Well I do know why - Runner's World magazine said that women runner's who gain weight need to increase their mileage to 30 miles/week on average to lose weight. I don't know how accurate that is (30 miles is a lot!), and if I actually qualify as a runner, but I figure what the heck I'll give it a shot. Maybe I should re-read that snippet to make sure I got the facts right before I go all crazy.
