So my plan was to focus on losing, work out Friday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, and really focus on dieting and eating well.
How have I done so far?
-I didn't work out Friday, I chose to meet with Matt at a bar instead. I know, boo Marie, but to make up for it I made sure I had about 20 weeklies left after Friday, and really tried to restrict a bit. And I think I did pretty well with that.
-I DID workout Saturday, and had a really great workout. 967 burnt, 25 minutes of strength, 40 minutes of pure cardio, it was like old times :-) It really helps to have a great book to read at the gym. My current obsession is this:
I'm actually onto the second in the trilogy, because this was so addictive I couldn't put it down! At first the characters were so frustrating, but I slowly fell in love with them, and their story. I also loved the history part of it, and reading about soviet Russia fascinates me, so I speed through the main part of the book just because I couldn't get over how haunting it was, and kept on reading more. Definitely recommend it if you love a good historical fiction/epic romance.I can't wait to finish the trilogy.
Sadly, since I went to the gym on Saturday, but shoulder has been bugging me. I think its just me working it harder than usual/sleeping on it weird on Friday night. So today Matt and I just took a nice walk (It was gorgeous out here today! Probably one of our last really good fall days :)), and I burnt another 230 calories, so it wasn't a total loss.
As far as the rest of the week, I want to get back into my old ways, of restricting on weekdays and being a bit loose on the weekends. I did well with this on the weekend, so now the real test starts :)
M-mini meatballs with spaghetti squash
T- zesty chicken drumsticks, rice, brussel sprouts
W- Turkey burgers, homemade fries, salad
Fri-Out, somewhere cheap and healthy
Breakfast- Overnight Oats! Next week I'm going to buy some cereal, I'm getting a little sick of oatmeal to be honest, haha
Lunches- LO Meatloaf courtesy of Matt's mom, and then Beef Stew!
M- Light Circuit- between 300-400 calories
T-cardio/strength- 700-900 calories
Th- gym-cardio.strength-700-900 calories
So my off days this week are Friday and Wednesday, with a light workout today. I hope to hit around 3000 this week. Get some!
