It's Tuesday so you know what that means... my one day late weekly plan!
Last week went pretty well.... I was really worried about all the meat I bought when I ended up making Meatball Soup at Kid's request for her birthday bumping my menu back a bit. But I sucked it up and did more cooking on the weekend and for the first time... in a long time... I didn't have to throw anything out.
I feel sufficiently recovered from all the birthday craziness and from the time change (which had sucked my life force out of me for a while there) and am ready to bust out some good workouts this week. I didn't quite meet my lofty exercise goals last week. I hoped for 3 - 30 minute interval sessions and 3 - 60 minute sessions. I did 2- 60 minute sessions and 3- 30 minute sessions. This was my first time trying to do shorter more intense workouts. I'm not feelin' it and don't intend to do them again. First of all I'm already doing interval training in my 60 minute workouts and even with running for my intervals I just didn't feel the same kind of overall burn that I do from a longer session. Plus it was harder to find MORE days to workout then to just workout LONGER on a few days. Lesson learned.
I was fairly out of control with my eating this past week... but the good news is that it didn't effect my weight. I have by the way updated my weight on the sidebar.. I had kind of let that sit at 112.. cause... well.. I was waiting to see if that was a weird fluke weigh-in or not. Two weeks later I can attest it was a fluke.. I must have had the emptiest bowels of all time that day. I've been pretty consistently between 114 and 114.4 the past few weeks. I perfectly happy with that and think it is a realistic maintenance weight. Now I'd really like to work on lowering my body fat percentage, which hasn't budged in a while... maybe it won't while I'm nursing. I'd also like to drastically reduce my sugar intake.. it has kind of been a sugar free-for-all around here and I'm not feeling any better for it!
As for cleaning I really didn't do any. I did the laundry and am happy to report I have successfully removed the burger grease from my sweatshirt! Yay!
Oh and I wrote all of the thank you notes and got Kid to sign then and mailed them!! Triumph!
