Last week I did really well. I did my 4 day weight routine, added in some days with HIIT workouts, and even ran 2 miles without stopping and/or dying. Leg day was insane - it was my first one ever and my legs honestly hurt for 3 days. THREE DAYS! It was good and bad...I guess I now "get" leg day.
My eating was on point for the most part. I made sure to stay on target with my macros almost everyday. There a few times I ate out and since those meals were fairly carb heavy and high in calories, I planned ahead by eating a very light protein heavy breakfast and dinner (and by light, I'm talking about some egg whites).
I wasn't sure what the scale was going to say this week. I was hopeful for a pound (since I've planned my calories/macros to help me lose a pound per week) and was not disappointed with my number :)
-1.8 this week
Holla! Almost 2 lbs was pretty exciting for me. I'm feeling really good and like I can do this. This week I've got another 4 days of weights, HIITs thrown in as well and I have plans to run again tonight with my neighbor.
Speaking of running - still debating on registering for another half. I told my husband I would never do another long run again, but it's only $40 and for a great local cause. The problem is, after my last 5k my body felt wrecked - like hip pain and could hardly walk. I've gotta get back into regular running to see how I feel before signing up, but I feel it calling to me :)
