Let me just go ahead and get this out of the way: I gained weight this week!
Could be muscle since I was going hard core after the Ripped in 30 from Jillian Michaels. Could be something else, like eating too much junk food.
Yep! I just admitted my over indulgence on fast food and chips.
I have many excuses, of which include the incredible stress I have been under these past few weeks as Daddy Head has been sick. While the doctor did say he had strep, he still isn’t better, and that has taken its toll on me. So I just feel off the wagon.
Add to that the nice shin splints I received from the Ripped in 30 program and I have had to take several days off from all exercise. I am disappointed, but plugging along. Ripped in 30 and I officially broke up today after I sustained a neck injury from it. Dumb crunches.
Anyway, I have to take today off from exercise as well, so hopefully tomorrow I can hit the pavement and log in some serious miles on my #52milesinmay goal. Here is my plan for the next week:
- Thursday: 3-4 miles
- Friday: Weight Lifting Class
- Saturday: Run
- Sunday: Run
- Monday: Off
- Tuesday: Run
- Wednesday: Weight Lifting Class or Zumba or both
And I will get those pictures taken eventually. It just hasn’t been on the priority list right now.
- What do you do when you are stressed to curb off over eating?
- How do you handle an injury?
- Have you ever had to stop a workout program you really enjoyed because you knew it was hurting more than helping?
