Fitness Log: Week 5

Running

I have done some tweaking on the "Exercise Log" and decided to keep myself publically accountable for my dieting as well.  So, for this 12-week-plus trial, I am hoping to gain some good habits, maintain my weight loss, and live a more active lifestyle.  Here is what I did (and didn’t do) this past week.

  • Sunday: not much….
  • Monday:  1.75 mile (30 min.) jog/walk on treadmill (240 calories)
  • Tuesday:  coach potoe couch potato
  • Wednesday:  more coach couch (and 114 degrees outside…sigh)
  • Thursday:  1.75 mile (30 min.) jog/walk on treadmill (265 calories)
  • Friday:  coach couch again…some good books, though
  • Saturday: did I say I like the coach couch?? 

This week I decided to lose the 5 or so pounds I gained over the last two months.  I am counting calories and eating better this week and the verdict is in: I lost 4 pounds! I had a goal of losing 53 pounds, as some of you have read here on this blog.  That was reached last October and I maintained well through the end of Many.  June and July, however have not been great.  Now it is time to ramp it up.  My second tier goal is an additional 15 pounds!  I would like to get there by Christmas. 

My knee is still healing, so I can’t do as much as I would like.  But, I am pretty sure this coming week will be better.

How was your week?

**Note–I actually corrected my spelling on this post.  THANKS for the multiple who have noticed and noted the spelling.;-)

  1. Good week last week, as I reached my goal weight at my WW meeting–I’m down 58 pounds. However, my events since then included a campout and a birthday celebration. I’ve only got 2 bike rides in. I have a 4-day class this week, starting today, and it’s out of town. So I’m going to be TOTALLY out of my routine. Ulp. Need to do some planning
    In other news, I’ve got a job interview later today for a VP gig in a neighboring school district. Off topic, I know, but I’m pretty jacked about it.

  5. So how does one “coach” a potato(e)? I guess we could ask Dan Quayle!

    Man, you are doing great! My exercise routine is usually daily at the Y, but this summer I’ve been pathetic in the exercise department!

  9. I noticed the misspelling, but I wasn’t going to say anything…trying to repent of my gift of criticism.
    I just started running gingerly again this week after an ankle sprain at the end of March. Confounded thing took forever to heal. Keep moving!

  13. This is so a good idea… It would be a good idea for me… I don’t think I can handle it.
