I kept my 2 personal goals the same because I feel they’re both important goals to work towards and I still have to work to meet the veggie goal. That and I never got around to creating new goals.
My 2 personal goals:
- Drink 64 oz. of water.
- Eat 3 servings of vegetables.
Overall personal goal analysis: I met both of these goals all 7 days. It’s still a struggle to get those veggies in but having this goal keeps me mindful and it’s definitely forcing me to eat my veggies! I’m hoping to make this a habit.
Here’s how my workouts went:
Monday: I completed the optional cardio of choice workout by walking 1.6 miles with hubby. It took a little over 33 minutes.
Tuesday: I completed an Intervals A workout, completing 1.5 miles in a little over 22 minutes. I also did Workout A.
Wednesday: I took a rest day, simply because I didn’t have a lot of time. But I got some good news at the doctor!
Thursday: I completed Intervals B by running/walking 2.61 miles in 38 minutes. I also did a core workout. Those X-crunches are killers!
Friday: I completed Workout B and chose to bike 3.4 miles in 15 minutes, which was the optional cardio part of the workout. I had terrible pain in my butt/hip area, but after lots of foam rolling it went away.
Saturday: I didn’t have enough time in the day to fit in a workout, so I took my second rest day. I had such intense calf pain from Workout B that I could hardly walk! I did get in some yard work though.
Sunday: Since I didn’t fit in my workout on Saturday, I got up early on Sunday to make sure I fit in my 5th workout of the week. I completed my second day of Intervals B and Core. This time I completed the intervals on the stationary bike because of the calf pain.
Overall workout analysis: In the past 7 days, I burned 1,428 calories through exercise. That seems like a lot to me! Overall, I fit in 5 workouts, which is the goal.
The calf pain is so intense and I think there is swelling in my calf muscles. I have never had that kind of pain in my calf muscles before! I guess Workout B really worked! I’m actually taking today as a rest day because they still don’t feel 100%. Time to give my body a rest.
How I feel: Disappointed.
I really shouldn’t feel disappointed. I met all of my goals for the week. But I missed out on Workout C again! I can’t help but feel like I am failing since I am not getting all 6 workouts in each week. But I know that I am doing the best that I can right now. So that should be enough! But the scale is not showing me any love, despite reducing my points and continuing the exercise…what is wrong with me?
I am proud of myself for waking up early on Sunday to make sure I fit that 5th workout in though!
For next week: Looking at the week ahead, I know it’s going to be hard to fit in 5 workouts, but I’m sure going to try.
