Hello divas and welcome to another week here at Divas Run for Bling. I hope that your weekend was fabulous, fun and active. Mine was pretty good I have to say. It is Monday which means it is time for another edition of The Weekly Report where I share the happenings of last week and set some goals for this week.
The Weekly Report August 4
Running. This week was a bit better for running though still not great. I managed 3 days of running for about 7 miles or so. I still haven’t done a “long” run. I really am going to have to push myself over the next 4 weeks as my half marathon is just a month away.
Workouts. As with the past few weeks, where I lack in running, I make up for in active days overall. I did at least one workout 5 days this week, 4 of which I did 2 workouts. My workouts consisted of my running, T25 and a bit of yoga & stretching.
Nutrition. My eating and nutrition was still not perfect but it was MUCH better than last week. We did go out to eat 3 times this week, though only one was really bad (read: Little Ceasers pizza). My hubby even took me out for dinner and a movie on Friday and I had a fabulous salad at Panera. I stayed under my calories every day but 1 this week and tracked all 7 days so that I know where I stand.
T25 update. I managed to get all my T25 workouts for week 3 in this week though I had to move some around for unplanned off days (Tuesday and date night on Friday). I am feeling stronger and faster every time I do these workouts. This week I managed to do a few burpees (3 of me to Shaun T’s 10 but I still did them:) ). I also did my first pike-up progression and it was HARD.
Measurements and weight. The only measurement that changed this week was my chest. I lost 1 inch. The other measurements were the same though my hubby mentioned that it LOOKED like I was losing some weight and inches this week. I guess that means I am starting to tone up a bit. I am super proud of my weight loss this week. I weighed in at 160.4 which means that I not only lost the 2 lbs. I gained last week but I also lost an additional half a pound on top of that. Woohoo!
- Running. I want to get 3-4 days of running in this week and get a long run of 5-6 miles.
- Workouts. I plan on working out 6 days this week, 4 of which will be 2 workout days. It is going to be a hot week with the heat and humidity returning so I will be doing my middle of the week runs early morning.
- Nutrition. I will continue to track my calories and nutrients to see where I stand. I want to stay under my calorie intake each day this week. I also want to stay away from fast food and donuts this week.
- Newsletter update. Thank you to everyone who is a newsletter subscriber. I plan to take 1-2 weeks off in order to revamp it a bit. I will let you know when it is done and what new features will be included and look forward to everyone checking it out.
