Weekly workout report

I like the idea of checking in with my workouts on Saturdays. I have been pretty consistent this week, getting almost four hours in. I did take one day completely off this week. It was a busy day and I hadn't taken a real day off in a while. I managed to journal every day, but I also am able to see that my calories are more in a maintenance mode than a losing one.

I'm still trying to get my fitness evaluation scheduled. I'm hoping it will be next week or early in the week after. I'm anxious to get some good advice on how to balance out my program.

Mostly this week I have felt more relaxed and happy and have been keeping busy doing things I like to do. I am starting to feel good about the way I look even though I haven't seen big changes on the scale yet -- I feel more toned and strong. I think it's more the exercise itself, rather than any exercise-related weight/fat loss, that has been making me feel this way.

The exercise:

20 minute run felt good after a long day of riding in the car. Would have gone longer but ran out of daylight.

  1. I think you're doing just fine. And maintenance mode isn't necessarily a bad thing either! I know you're in the same situation I am when it comes to weather. I think as soon as we have some spring weather (on a regular basis), that it will mnake a difference. I know it's weird but I really believe it. We can finally come out of frozen hibernation and live again!

  2. I hadn't thought about the weather connection but maybe that's why I've been feeling so much happier. Here in Toledo, we get very cloudy winters. We're starting to see some sun again. Plus it's so much nicer to run outside now.
