Weekly Review: Sep 17 - 23

Goals for workouts this year:
1. 100-125 miles run/walk per month
2. One 20+ mile run/walk per month
3. One day of Pilates per week
4. One day of Strength Training per week
5. One day of Bike or Elliptical per week
6. One Incline Workout on the Treadmill per week

Here's this week's recap
Monday
PM Workout:  Bike - 6.6mi, 30mins, 13.3mph avg, resistance level 2
Food:  1200 calories
Notes: Got in an okay workout on the bike tonight - nothing fancy, but it's all I could manage.  I tried to do the elliptical, but my knees were protesting after one minute.

Tuesday
REST
Food:  1348 calories
Notes:  Let the stress of work get to me and decided to skip the workout.

Wednesday
REST
Food:  1270 calories
Notes:  Having trouble this week.

Thursday
REST
Food:  1585 calories
Notes:  I just don't know how to get myself on track with the working out.  My knees seem to be constantly sore and I'm afraid of making them hurt more.

Friday
REST
Food:  1520 calories
Notes:  I'm just struggling right now.

Saturday
REST
Food:  1720 calories
Notes: Lacking motivation to workout and hungry all day.

Sunday
REST
Food:  1720 calories
Notes: Food was rough today.  I was hungry all day today.  Feeling no motivation even though I have so many goals.

Weekly Numbers:
Weight Watch: -4.0 pounds
The first week of tracking always goes so well with the water weight loss.  Just going to keep going and see what comes next. 

Run/Walk Miles: 0.0
Bike Miles: 6.6
Elliptical Miles: 0.0
TOTAL MILES: 6.6

Pilates: MISSED
Strength: MISSED
Incline: MISSED

Monthly Numbers

Bike Miles: 13.1
Elliptical Miles: 0.0
TOTAL MILES: 38.74


Training Notes
I had some good food days and bad food days last week, but nothing earth shattering.  I just need to try to stay focused and do what I know I need to do.

The workouts are not going well.  I am battling with the sore knees and constant tiredness right now.  I think that I'm afraid to hurt - which is just silly because a good workout sore is exactly what I need right now.

I'm still trying to find my way again, but I'll figure it out.  I know it will come together at some point - I just hope it's soon.

Stay strong and reach for your goals!

Weekly Review: Sep 10 - 16

Goals for workouts this year:
1. 100-125 miles run/walk per month
2. One 20+ mile run/walk per month
3. One day of Pilates per week
4. One day of Strength Training per week
5. One day of Bike or Elliptical per week
6. One Incline Workout on the Treadmill per week

Here's this week's recap
Monday
PM Workout:  Bike - 6.5mi, 30mins, 13.3mph avg, resistance level 2
Food:  1165 calories.  Started tracking everything again
Notes: Time to reboot - why not start trying to do better on my birthday.  Got in an okay workout on the bike today and it didn't cause too much knee pain so that was a plus.

Tuesday
PM Workout:  Treadmill walk 1.804mi @ 17:04 per mi
Food:  1580 calories
Notes:  Had a bit of a rough time on the treadmill.  My knee was just not feeling good tonight.  I can also feel how much my cardio has decreased.  That's why I'm working on it right?

Wednesday
REST
Food:  1205 calories
Notes:  Late day at work attending a conference.  Right knee really sore all day.

Thursday
PM Workout:  Treadmill walk 1.83mi @ 16:40 per mi.  30 seconds at 4mph, 1 minute at 3.5mph intervals
Food:  1385 calories
Notes:  Felt pretty good on the treadmill tonight, was able to keep the knees feeling pretty good.

Friday
REST
Food:  1560 calories
Notes:  Felt tired and stressed and decided not to work out.  Right decision?  Probably not, but that's the way it goes so there you have it.

Saturday
AM Workout:  Greater Orlando Heart Walk - 4.00mi, .5mi warm up walk, 3mi @ 18:34 per mi, .5mi cool down walk
Food:  1525 calories
Notes: Did my first non-Disney walk here in Orlando - but I did don my VoluntEARS t-shirt so it was sort of Disney.  It was a slow walk due to a congested course, but more on that later.

Sunday
REST
Food:  1210 calories
Notes: This was a super bad day.  I was super sick all day with stomach pain and a fever.  It was tough to even eat today, but I tried and slept a lot.

Weekly Numbers:
Weight Watch: -2.0 pounds
I was two pounds down from the last weigh in.  It's a place to start if nothing else. 

Run/Walk Miles: 7.64
Bike Miles: 6.5
Elliptical Miles: 0.0
TOTAL MILES: 14.14

Pilates: MISSED
Strength: MISSED
Incline: MISSED

Monthly Numbers
Run/Walk Miles: 25.64
Bike Miles: 6.5
Elliptical Miles: 0.0
TOTAL MILES: 32.14


Training Notes
So, long time no check in.  Sorry about that, it's been a crazy few months and none of it included training like it should have.  I am back now and trying to do better for myself.

I did finish the Disneyland Half, but it was not pretty and l'll try to post a trip report soon.  I've been dealing with some internet issues at the new house, but hopefully those are now resolved.

I'm looking ahead at the next few months and now that I have a lot of work to do in order to get ready for a busy rest of the year and start of next year.  I know what to do, but I surely need to get my head straight and start actually doing it!

On my birthday I decided that the time to do better is now so I had a really good first week.  I decided to try to keep my calories between 1200 and 1500.  So far tracking everything has really helped and I hope by posting my daily calories, it will keep me accountable.

I am still dealing with a bum knee - some days are great others I can hardly walk, but I'm working through it.  I hope to increase my cardio and mileage to where I need to be and work on improving my speed.

Hope everyone else is out there keeping at it and staying strong!
