This week has definitely had it's ups and downs for me. I am leaving town this evening to go and visit my parents in Dallas until Monday. I love visiting them, but I get very little - or no- exercise and eat WAY too bad while I'm there. So, I tried to plan ahead and work out a little more than usual, which kind of bit me in the butt! Here was what I did this week:
Monday: Making the Cut Day 8, followed by 10 minute (1 Mile) run
Tuesday: Making the Cut Day 9, followed by a 6 minute sprint, and an evening 20 minute (2 mile) run.
Wednesday: Ran 3.25 miles
Thursday: Making the Cut Day 11
My body is definitely feeling the effects of working out too much without giving it a break. Luckily for it, I will have the next few days off. But by pushing it too hard I am more sore than usual *hence - not giving my body the "recovery" time that it needs* and I have bruised the left ball of my foot. On top of all that I weighed in this morning at 132 lbs. This means that I put on a pound from last week. Yes, I know this could be muscle, but I SO badly wanted to reach my goal of 13o!
Trust me, I'm not giving up hope - if anything, it's making me push myself harder.
Now, on a lighter note. As I have posted before, we got a wii and wii fit for Christmas. We absolutely love the thing in this house. "We" meaning not just my husband and myself, but my two small children as well. My son is very observant and he has watched how we play the games, so I figured he would be pretty good at repeating - which I was right. But it was my 16 month old daughter that really surprised us. She's an observant little booger herself. This is now what we're doing for family game nights and we LOVE gettin' fit in this house!
