Weekly Update




I'll also be sharing on...

 Weekly Wrap hosted by HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin
and trying out a new link up a Sunday Fitness and Food Linkup hosted by Ilka from Ilka’s Blog and Angela from Marathons & Motivation

Ok nothing special about this week, but since November is right around the corner I think I'm going to jot down some goals for next month.

Start tracking calories using LoseIt! I'm not trying to lose weight, but I need to increase my calorie intake as I've been really tired lately. I think the added activity of working on my feet, actually moving, for 10 hours is catching up to me. I also need to get a better grasp on what I'm eating, to cut out a lot of the junk. I chose LoseIt! because it's a calorie tracker I haven't tried, Jen over at That's What I'm Talking About uses it and it's compatible with my UP Move.
One day a week of dedicated strength training. I want to do (at least) one day of (at least) 30 mins of dedicated strength training, either body weight or with weights. I might combine this with running or not.


Ok that's it for now, maybe I'll add to this more as I go. Here's what I did this week...

10/22/16: ran 3.73 miles in 24:13 mins (4095 steps)
10/23/16: ran 2.40 miles in 15:14 mins (3072 steps)
Yoga for strength 36 mins
10/24/16: Rest (2388 steps)
10/25/16:  ran 2.56 miles in 17:17 (4981 steps)
Goodbye stress yoga for 15 mins
10/26/16: Rest (2851 steps)
10/27/16: Lazy (2947 steps)
10/28/16: Got Groceries (3665 steps)

Psst... before you go make sure you've entered my Spooktacular Giveaway there are two awesome prize packs up for grabs.

  2. Great week of workouts! I find strength training is also the piece easiest to skip too... but I feel so accomplished afterward. Great goal to start with one a week!

    1. Thanks, yes it is. I find I don't do it more often than I do.

  3. I need to start cutting out more junk food from my diet as well. I think because I run all the time I can eat what I want, but that is not the case. I usually strength train once a week because I teach body pump at the gym, but next month I am picking up some more classes for another instructor, so that'll be good for me.

  5. I have started using My Fitness Pal, to get a better understanding of my calories and macros. I learned that I was overeating way too much, and not eating enough carbs. I have been tracking since August and have learned a ton.

    1. I tried My Fitness Pal and wasn't crazy about it, but I'm glad to hear it's working for you. I track off and on, usually when I feel I'm starting to slide off the healthy food wagon :) or I worry I'm not eating enough which is a problem for me. I'll actually forget to eat, if I'm working on stuff and not paying attention.

  6. Sounds like you've got a good plan! Let me know what you think of Lose It, or if you have any questions. I've been using it every day for almost 3 years now, and I find it routine. I'm at the point where if I don't track, I get anxious. ahaha. Good luck!

    1. I used to do it all the time, but then started to slack and enjoyed running alot more... anyway I'll get back into the swing of it. :)

  8. I should do more strength training, especially now that summer (and waterskiing) is over. I can't imagine working for 10 hours on my feet and then having the motivation to run in addition to that. Excellent job!! Thanks for linking, Shandy Jo!

    1. Thanks, I don't always and do most of my running on my days off. It's usually short runs after work.

    1. It's not for everyone that's for sure, but I used to do 10 hours sitting at a sewing machine and that really drove me nuts.
