I'm shaking things up! I'm actually setting a new Goal Weight. I'm bound and determined to not be over weight any longer. And I really think I can actually do this. 2 weeks ago I posted that I had my first 5km race... I had set a goal for myself to try to do the 5km in under 35 minutes. (I never claimed to be fast or good, but at least I'm doing it!) Well I did it in 30 minutes and 31 seconds! Woot! Woot!
Anyway here's my stats for the last two weeks...
Starting Weight : 169 lbs.
Last Week's Weight : 157 lbs.
Current Weight : 153 lbs.
Goal Weight : 130 lbs
Ideal Goal : 125 lbs.
1. Reiterate my Goal and where I stand in reference to it.
Healthy lifestyle and an athletic body. Slowly but surely I will get there. This was definitely easier in my 20's. I have another 5km race this weekend. And I am trying to build myself up to the 10 km. My ultimate goal is to do a sprint Tri at the end of the summer.
2. Discuss what I am doing to achieve these goals.
Running 3x a week (at least)
Biking 2x a week
Swimming 1-2x per week. (I'm meeting with my old Tri coach on thursday mornings!)
Some muscle endurance classes (when time allows)
Eating smaller portions and more frequently throughout the day.
Drinking 8+ large waters a day. (no pop or flavour water)
Cut out the FATS!!!
Activities and Goals for this week
Thursday - swim with training coach
Friday - Run 3 miles +
Saturday - OFF
Sunday - outdoor run 5 km's
Monday - bike 10km then run a quick mile
Tuesday - run (hard 3 miles with sprints) - last run of the week as 5km race on Saturday! :)
3. Post a reasonably healthy recipe, cooking tip or new idea for working out.
Watch your fats. You would not believe how little oil you really need when cooking. If a recipe calls for a tablespoon use a teaspoon instead. And if you love your cream and sugar in your coffee, instead try a fat free flavour creamer. It satisfies the sugar crave and still sweetens your coffee enough that it is enjoyable!
