What I did last week: June 11-June 17
Today is weigh-in day and I'm not sure how I'm going to do. My goal is to at least lose the pound I gained last week. I missed some days of tracking over the weekend and I felt very off-track. I always have a hard time when I'm around family and especially when there are "fun" foods available that I don't usually have around.
On the positive side, I had a pretty good exercise week. I registered for a sprint triathlon next Wednesday evening (right before I leave for Fitbloggin'), and that has helped me to feel more focused on training. I'm not sure how the run will go but I can always walk the 5K if I have to. I have been doing a lot of swimming and biking, so those parts should be no problem. Last week was a very swim-focused week. I think for weight loss, biking and running are better than swimming, so that's another reason I'm not sure I'll see great results today.
Exercise for the week:
Wednesday: Evening walk, 10,065 steps total
Thursday: 1-mile open-water swim, 14,112 steps
Friday: 45-minute early-morning lap swim, 3,377 steps*
Saturday: Pilates Circuit class, 7,315 steps**
Sunday: Playing with nephews, 8,072 steps**
Monday: 30-minute early-morning lap swim, 7121 steps
Tuesday: Yoga class, 12,508 steps
* forgot to charge my band and it didn't record a lot of the day
** took band off because I was in and out of the pool
I think if it hadn't been for the band issues above, I would have hit my 10,000 step goal.
I'll be back later today or tomorrow to post -- I have an evening event so I'm not sure which.
