So it's already Tuesday and I'm only getting around to posting my Sunday Sweats post about last week's fitness progress now. I would have just said "screw it" and not posted it at all, but I figure it's a good way to hold myself accountable even if nobody's following along much anymore. (I don't blame you, I've been sort of selfish as far as blogging goes...but I'll save that for another post.)
Anyway, I finally ran last week, but didn't make my goal of running at least 3x. Once was good enough for me though because I was dying at only half a mile. I also did a little bit of yoga here and there too which felt really good to stretch and lengthen and meditate.
As far as diet goes, I've been pretty good at staying away from wheat products, drinking lots of water and controlling my sugar intake. I think the only time I really eat/drink anything sweet is my morning and afternoon cups of coffee. So I think I'm doing okay so far with all of that.
As I mentioned last week, I signed up for a 21-day weight loss challenge by Noelle Benepe. I did day 1 yesterday (Monday) after running and it was pretty good. I only did one rep of each because I didn't want to overdo it on the first day especially after the 2 mile run I did just before. Also, since I'm holding myself accountable here, I did accidentally skip one exercise of the circuit - squat jumps - because I thought I had memorized the routine already after glancing at it and watching the video in the morning so I didn't bother to check my list until today.
Today is Day 2 and mostly upper body exercises and I'm excited. My upper body strength sucks. As in I can probably only do 4 good pushups in a row. Looking forward to killing my arms tonight and the rest of my body this week.
What about you? What have you been up to? Killed any workouts lately?
