My FIFTH workout of the week was:
35 min Treadmill walk (totaling 1.6 miles)
Um, yeah. I went to the gym this morning. I really wasn't feeling it, but I was so sore I figured that moving was the only thing that would help. I'm glad I did go, but man my heart was not into this morning.
But... I went to the gym all FIVE mornings this week!!! That surpasses my goal of 4 workouts a week and sets the standard for what I can accomplish in the post PT era. I'm proud of myself for following through on my routine and really pushing during my workouts earlier in the week. The biggest factors in making this happen were having my gym bag packed and ready to go the night before and getting to bed on time.
Not that getting to bed on time was all that hard. I have been beat the past couple of days. Last night I went to bed at 8pm a few minutes after my 3 year old laid down. I'm not even sure she was asleep when I passed out. I'm starting to wonder if I might be cutting my calories a little too lean during the week. I make up for it with overages on the weekends, but maybe I'd have more control if I didn't limit quite so much during the week.
Either way, it is something I'll be thinking on going into next week. My monthly weigh-in is on Wednesday and I've definitely looking forward to it. It is good to know that I'm making progress for all the work that I'm putting in. Those results in conjunction with how I've been feeling will help determine my course for the month to come. More than anything I hope I maintain the happy I've achieved. It's almost better than the weight loss. Almost, but not quite. :)
