5K Training Update

Meh! I fell off the wagon a bit, but not too bad. I am confident I will pick it up again. I am in pretraining mode where I am trying to workout each day but not go crazy and run 500 miles at every workout. That would kill my body. I want my body to get used to working out again before I go gunho. I scheduled out my Zombie training to finish that 2 weeks before the BIG DAY. That way I can have some rest or make up time if needed.

So far I have walked/jogged a mile or so twice a week since signing up, except for last week. I puked my guts out instead. But hey, I lost a pound or two in the process. I would rather have energy than to be in bed sick and losing weight. I have been focusing more on running and I think my legs need some balance. This week I am going to focus more on strengthing workouts. I have also been taking the stairs everywhere I go. At one of my offices we jump around between 5 floors and yes I took the stairs everytime. I felt amazing that day. The last locations I have been too have been keeping me on my feet ALL DAY. So I am ready for some weight lifting and yoga or something.

I have been working out in the evenings mostly. I want to start working out in the morning but it is so hard to get up any earlier than I do. I might try it soon. Roan has been sleeping better, not all the way through the night, just up once.

As far as eating goes. I haven't been too bad but not amazing either. I have said NO to a lot, A LOT of free food, even at Costco, which is such a big deal for me. Even at Roan's birthday I was good and only had 10 cakepops instead of 20. :) But then we had like 50 million left over cupcakes (I made my family take them into work) and I got caked out so I asked for pie for my birthday but now I am pied out. Overall I think I am sweetened out. But I don't think I have been too bad so I don't feel terrible and I think it will be easy to just healthy up a little more and cut back on the sweets. I have been snacking with only fruits and veggies and I can already see a slight difference in my waist line. WOOT!

Goal this week is to focus more on strength excercises and to cease eating sweets...except for your MOM. Oh SNAP!!!

  1. Good job Stephanie! I think that is the key: to just keep going. If you fall off the wagon, then jump back on! You are doing an amazing job!
