Weekly Review: Oct 20 - 26, 2014

Weekly Recap
Monday (Oct 20)
PM Workout: Walk - .94mi, 21 mins
Notes: The thought was good - the girls got to go out for their first walk back in AZ.  Sadly, it was 91 degrees and so it was a short hot walk.  I've been dealing with a migraine so I suppose it was good that I got anything done at all.

Tuesday (Oct 21)
PM Workout:  Treadmill walk 1.84mi @ 16:18 per mi, 30 mins
Notes:  My treadmill is toast????  I seriously have to work on this thing or there will be doing no more miles on it.  The belt is slipping so badly today that it felt dangerous.  I will have to see what I can do about this.

Wednesday (Oct 22)
PM Workout:  Bike - 7mi, 27 mins,15.4mph avg, resistance level 3
Notes:  Good ride.  I shouldn't have started the ride so hungry - I had lunch an hour early today due to work and I was starving.

Thursday (Oct 23)
Notes:  So nothing formal, but I did go outside and chop trees.  After half an hour in the 90 degree heat that was about all I could handle.  Strangely I was super hungry all day - as in stomach growling craziness.  It wasn't just stress, I was actually hungry.  I did add a snack of fruit today.

Friday (Oct 24)
Notes:  I don't know what is up, but I woke up with the hungries again today.  It was like there was not filling the tummy today - weird.

Saturday (Oct 25)
Notes: Belle kept me up most of the night with two pretty bad seizures.  This meant two things - I was so tired and I didn't want to leave her alone.  So I had the perfect excuse to not due my long run again.  Yeah - I know, that's the worst thing I could possibly do right now.

Sunday (Oct 26)
Notes:  I have been feeling off all day.  I kept trying to get the motivation to get a workout in, but it just didn't happen.  It was all I could do to go out and get the grocery shopping done.  I also spent some time working on the treadmill and I think I have it functional again.  I was able to walk and run on it for a few minutes and it didn't kill me so I'll take that as a good sign.

Weekly Numbers:
Run/Walk Miles: 2.78
Bike Miles: 7.0
Elliptical Miles: 0.0

Monthly Numbers
Run/Walk Miles:  24.67
Bike Miles: 21.10
Elliptical Miles: 0.94

Training Notes
Well, this week didn't turn out the way I had planned, but I know that I just have to keep working on it.  Wine and Dine and Avengers are coming up and they will both be challenging.  So challenging I don't know what will happen - the suspense.

Health Watch
Coming up on the end of week 2 of Whole 30 take two.  So far I haven't gone off plan at all.  I am still enjoying the food and have gotten in to the swing of shopping and cooking.  It does still cost me more to eat this way, but I have cut back on some of the organic veggies to help out some.  I have added more fruit back in to the diet - one to two a day. 

It is still killing me not stepping on the scale.  I have felt all week that I am gaining weight or at least not losing anything more.  I have not given in, but it is difficult.  Guess I still have some work to do on my mind - no big surprise there.

Weekly Review: Oct 13 - 19, 2014

Weekly Recap
Monday (Oct 13)
PM Workout: Bike - 7mi, resistance level 2, 14 mph avg, 30 mins
Notes: Good bike ride - the knee felt okay through the whole ride which was fantastic.

Tuesday (Oct 14)
PM Workout:  Treadmill run/walk - 1.66mi, 30 mins, 17:39 per mi
Notes:  My right knee is not too happy to be running right now - it continues the lovely popping out on each step.  Belle had a seizure again today, but it was just a little one and she got through it alone while I was at work - maybe her new supplement is starting to help.  Last day of Whole 30!!!

Wednesday (Oct 15)
PM Workout:  Elliptical - .94mi, 30 mins, ramp 10%, varied resistance levels (1 - 6 program)
Notes:  It was tough to do a whole 30 minutes, but I survived.  Although both feet are very asleep and both knees were popping out - thankfully they weren't extremely painful today.

Thursday (Oct 16)
PM Workout:  Treadmill run/walk 1.92mi, 30 mins, 15:47 per mi
Notes:  I pushed a little more than usual today.  The treadmill is still slipping and causes me issues, but I got the time in.  The knees still hurt, but I did okay.

Friday (Oct 17)
PM Workout:  Bike - 7.1mi, 14.3mph avg, resistance level 2, 30 mins 
Notes:  Good easy bike ride tonight.  I am planning on some miles this weekend and they make me very nervous.

Saturday (Oct 18)
Notes: Not sure I can really call this a rest day.  I helped my sister unpack from a move.  Thankfully I didn't have to go up and down three flights of stairs too many times.  Still moving boxes and furniture got my knees going a bit so no miles when I finally got home.

Sunday (Oct 19)
Notes:  No excuses, I'm tired and sore from helping my sister move and I just couldn't make myself get the miles in.

Weekly Numbers:
Run/Walk Miles: 3.58
Bike Miles: 14.10
Elliptical Miles: 0.94

Monthly Numbers
Run/Walk Miles:  22.83
Bike Miles: 14.10
Elliptical Miles: 0.94

Training Notes
I am so far behind where I need to be in terms of training.  I know that I am running short of time for Dopey, but beyond that I have Wine & Dine and Avengers coming up.  I really don't know how those races are going to go.

Health Watch
I have almost finished my first week of Whole 30 Take 2.  So far I have not done any modifications to the eating plan.  I am very happy with the food the way it is.  I know that I will make adjustments when I eat out and I will just have to see how things go and how I feel.  I will do my best to stay compliant, but if there is something not compliant and I think it won't negatively impact me I will not be afraid to try it.
