STS Mid-Week Report
Re-cap of the week thus far. Things are going good. Not perfect, but good. My goal is to be under 165g of Carbohydrates/day, exercise 5 times a week for 45-60 minutes, and to have 10 glasses of water a day. Oh yes.... and to run/walk a 5K in under 40 minutes. I do not have a caloric goal, but I am keeping track anyhow.
When I am able to work out on the treadmill I am going for 40 minutes and seeing how far I can go. My goal is to increase my distance each time. Saturday I went 2.6 miles and Tuesday I went 2.88 miles. I know I will accomplish my goal of a 5K I under 40 minutes before the challenge is over. In that case, I will set a new time goal.
Monday: Carbs:144 (21 under) Calories: 1514 Water: 10 glasses
Exercise: 45 minutes Elliptical and Bike
Tuesday: Carbs:157 (8 carbs under)Calories: 1840 Water: 8 glasses
Exercise: 40 minutes walk/jog 2.88 miles 20 minutes strength training
Wednesday: Carbs:176 (11 carbs over) Calories: 1974 Water: 9 glasses
Exercise: 50 minutes elliptical and bike
70 minutes ice skating
Wednesday my husband: The Chocolate Lover and I celebrated our wedding anniversary so I splurged on a super rich Magnum ice cream bar, and a late night trip to Taco Bell following our Ice Skating date. I did go over on my carbs, but not ridiculously high. Had I not splurged I would have been wayyy under.
Getting the water in is challenging for me. I have to remind myself to keep drinking. I imagine as the weather warms up I will be drinking more. Today it is a balmy 57 degrees here in
. I also should bring two water bottles when I am working out. I could easily drink another bottle when I am working out. I always run out of water and I am beet-red in the face for an hour or two after running. Maybe if I get in more water my body will learn to cool itself down more efficiently. Boise, Idaho
