Hello divas! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was rather quiet and a little lazy which was nice. But the weather was stifling hot, keeping me indoors a bit. It’s Monday and the beginning of another week which also means it is time for another edition of The Weekly Report when I share the happenings of last week and set some goals for this week.
The Weekly Report July 14
Workouts. If you checked out my fitness snapshots on Friday, you know that last week was really good for workouts. While the hot and sometimes stormy weather and some poor planning on my part kept my running to a minimum (only 2 runs for 3 miles), I did manage to workout a total of 5 days this week. I did the Insanity Fast and Furious workout on Monday and tried out a few of the T25 workouts that I will be starting this week. I also worked some yoga in as well.
Nutrition. This week was also great for my nutrition. After gaining a few pounds over the last 6 weeks or so, I am determined to reverse that trend. I have started tracking my food again via My Fitness Pal (the username is hsheinlein if you want to friend me and/or see my food diary). I am making my diary public so that everyone can see what I am eating and lovingly call me out if I start to go crazy and eat fast food every night. I tracked my food every day this week and managed to stay under my calories.
Weight loss. There wasn’t really any weight loss this week as I set my activity level to lightly active and could eat under 1460 calories a day. I expect the weight loss once I start my T25 training this week and actually work out a larger amount.
Me and Shaun T. As stated earlier, several of my workouts this week were with Shaun T. I did the Insanity Fast and Furious workout on Monday and three of the T25 workouts on Thursday-Saturday to try them out. My husband and I bought the T25 as an anniversary gift to each other (our anniversary is in 2 weeks) so that we could get in shape together – me to lose weight and help my running, him to tone up. Today actually starts the T25 program so I will be posting my training plan and beginning measurements and weight tomorrow here on the blog. I will be sure to keep all of you updated as to my progress along the way and feel free to call me out if it looks like I am starting to slack off.
- T25 start. My 10 weeks of T25 starts today. I will be doing a T25 workout 5 days this week (one each day Monday-Thursday and 2 on Friday). I will update through social media along the way.
- Workouts. I am also still training for my next half marathon. Therefore, I will still be doing 3 shorter runs on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and a long run of 4 miles on Saturday. This means that I will be doing 2 workouts a day Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Whew. I will also probably be doing some yoga after the long run to try to stretch out what I am sure will be some sore muscles.
- Nutrition. I am hoping to lose some weight this week. I will do so by doing the workouts above and tracking my food. I will track every day and stay under my calorie count.
