Spring Challenge Week #2

Saturday, April 18, 2020

Week 2 was so-so. My eating habits were not good at all. I made a cheesecake for Easter and with just four of us eating it, I had a couple additional servings in the following days. And my husband bought me a bag of Dove chocolate eggs, and I'm embarrassed to say I ate them all. I finally pulled myself together around Thursday, but the damage was done. I gained .6 pounds and I'm surprised it wasn't more. I'm also not eating enough fruits and veggies.

On the bright side, exercise was mostly consistent. I skipped Wednesday because our washing machine broke Tuesday night and we had to have a repair person here Wednesday morning and then again in the afternoon. If I had really wanted to, I could have fit in a workout, but the willpower was not there. I ended up doing Wednesday's workout on Thursday and pushed half of Thursday's to Friday. The only thing that truly got skipped was Thursday's 30 minute run.

My exercise step came in this week and I was able to use it on Friday, so that was good. Wishing the budget allowed for me to buy some weights (really missing the Les Mills sets we use at the gym), but for now the 10 lb. hand weights continue to be sufficient. I had only been doing Body Pump since November and I have wimpy arms as it is, so the hand weights are fine. I could use more for when we work the legs, but oh well. Hopefully the increased running makes up for some of that.

Weekly Exercise Recap:
Monday - Body Pump 55 minutes, walked 15 minutes
Tuesday - Turtle-pace run on treadmill 30 minutes, 10 min. warmup/cool down, Body Flow class 55 minutes
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - Turtle-pace run on treadmill 41 minutes, 10 min. warmup/cool down, plus some extra walking to get up to 60 minutes for the day
Friday - Body Pump 55 minutes, Body Flow 55 minutes
Saturday - Turtle-pace run on treadmill 80 minutes, 10 min. warmup/cool down

Hoping for a good Week 3 -- I really need to make some progress in my weight loss!
