First off, the spin class last Wednesday kicked my butt, but it was awesome! So glad I went, even though it caused me to feel like I had been repeatedly punched in the crotch the next day. Fun. Any advice on good cycling shorts/capris that would pad that area in the future? I’m actually skipping the class today because of Halloween, but I’m really going to try to get to the class on Wednesdays in the future. I’m also working on getting back in the habit of going to hot yoga on Monday nights. That means my weeks are something like this…
Sunday: varies – usually elliptical or walk at some point
Monday: work 8-5:30, yoga 5:45-6:45
Tuesday: work 8-5:30, eat dinner as a fam and play w/Stells
Wednesday: day off, walk w/Stella at some point, 5:45-6:45 spin class
Thursday: work 8-5:30, eat dinner as a fam and play w/Stells
Friday: work 8-5:30, eat dinner (often with friends) and play w/Stells
Saturday: varies – usually elliptical or walk at some point
That gives me 2 solid workouts (Monday yoga / Wednesday spin) and 3 varied workouts (elliptical / walk / or both). Not nearly as hard core as a I used to be when I wanted to lose weight, but it’s more doable with a baby at home and having to work around her schedule! I don’t want to work out at the expense of family time – yet I know I need to work out and it will benefit both me and my family in the long run! So far the schedule above strikes that balance for me.
I’ve tracked my food using MFP all week, and it definitely forced me to realize how my snacks/portion sizes have crept out of control over the past few months.
Net Calories the past week: 935 under goal (yahoo!)
Weight: down 2 pounds since last week
Belly: down 1″ since beginning this challenge (38d ago)
I’m going to keep tracking with MFP this week.
I’m going to eat a salad at least once a day.
94 days until my sister’s wedding!
