Shrinkvivor weigh-in #2

This week had its ups and downs. I didn't get to log as many minutes as I would have liked, and the cold that has been lingering came back with a vengeance. But, I had an awesome run on Sunday. I felt so good, once I hit the 30 min mark, I kept running until the mileage was 3miles, then I kept running until it said 3.25 so I could honestly say I ran for 3 miles straight (I walk for the first .25 miles). I ended up doing 3.5 miles total! Then did weights!! I felt so good when I was done. Then woke up Monday morning feeling like shit!

Despite the crappy week, I still managed to lose. I am really hoping that I can kick this cold so that I can get back on track!

Challenge #1 track fitness minutes: 237 minutes
Challenge #2 track sleep: most nights I got 7 hours of sleep. However I routinely have a 3 year old who climbs in my bed at night, so I really don't think my 7 hours are quality hours.

Last week 186.8

Shrinkvivor Weigh-In

The first week of Shrinkvivor went pretty well. We were challenged this week with logging all minutes of exercise and to not eat fast food.

I always feel like I let people down when I have to log my minutes. As a working mom with three kids in activities I have to squeeze in my exercise when I can. I would love to be able to do more, but I'm not sure I could.

Staying away from fast food is not an issue for me, typically. We did eat out on Friday and ordered carry out on Saturday. Not sure if that counts as fast food. Friday's meal, I had a salad and used my dressing (on the side) sparingly, so I felt pretty good about my choices. Saturday we got Chinese carry-out. Not such a good choice, but I watched my portion sizes. My husband and I joke that a night of Chinese puts pounds on us overnight. This weekend was no different. I woke up on Sunday morning 2lbs heavier than I had been on Sat morning. Have spent the days since then drinking tons of water and trying hard to compensate for it.

I worked out everyday but Friday this week and feel good about my 324 minutes (5 hours 24 minutes), but wishing it could be more. I'm working really hard at getting back to running 30 min straight/ 3miles. Hoping it won't take too long to get back there!

My weigh in wasn't too bad, considering the Chinese food, but had hoped it would be more.
