Week 2 of not working out as much as I want to or should.
I was doing great for a while, working out at home every night, whether I worked out at the gym or not.
Lately, it seems I’ve been mentally, physically and emotionally drained. Add that to a hectic schedule, and my progress has come to a slight temporary halt.
Nothing like being in a health slump right before your first 5K.
I have been trying to run. My personal trainer Hannah Riley of the Norwalk Rec has me running every other day to get ready for the 5K, but I still feel like my lungs just aren’t ready. (Update: Edie won the FIT Challenge 5K on Sunday. She was the first of the five FIT Challengers to finish.)
I’ve ran more than 2 miles without rest, twice and probably could have run longer, but I still have a schedule to keep, so there are always time restraints.
I’m am proud to day my eating hasn’t been affected too much.
Breakfast has been a boiled egg or protein flake cereal, tuna or salad for lunch, half a protein bar, mixed nuts or Greek yogurt for a snack.
Dinner is a small portion of whatever the family is eating.
I’m still trying out the recipes and food suggestions from Hannah. I haven’t been disappointed yet.
My next blog will definitely show improvement ... lack of time or not feeling well will not stop me from getting my butt back into gear.
