Weekly Summary

The weather this week was really crappy. It rained most of the week so I couldn’t walk as much as I wanted to. I still managed to make it to my ten mile mark though! 🙂

  • Sunday- 3.78
  • Monday- 1.36
  • Tuesday- Rest day
  • Wednesday- 1.08
  • Thursday- 2.10
  • Friday- 1.51
  • Saturday- 2.43
  • Total miles= 12.26

I just LOVE doing Zumba! I will definitely be doing it more often. Unfortunately, I did another Zumba workout instead of the target area workout because I had so much fun doing it. Its no excuse though and I will try harder next week. Step aerobics is kicking my butt but I really enjoy doing it and it makes me sweat like nobody’s business! haha

I only measured my navel today and I lost TWO inches!!! Woohoo!!!!! This is great since I didn’t lose any weight this week (but at least I didn’t gain any). I believe I gained some muscle due to the added exercises I did this week. Seeing how many inches I lost at my navel makes me tempted to take all my measurements but I haven’t decided yet. I have even lost a pant size.

A friend told me she can tell my face has gotten thinner. The compliment really means a lot to me. It’s reassuring to have friends notice changes as well.

Weekly Summary

This week was pretty crazy. I worked a lot this week, my brother came up for a day from Florida, and we had a doctor’s appointment for Peanut. Even though it was a crazy week, I don’t make excuses and I don’t need to! I walked a total of 13.18 miles for the week (yay!) and managed to add some additional workouts as well.

  • Sunday night, after my walk, I did a step aerobics workout.
  • Thursday, I did a yoga workout while Peanut was sleeping.
  • Friday, I walked over 3 miles at a flea-market. Plus when I got home, I did an arm workout with a 5 minute cool-down yoga routine.

Overall, I have had a great week in regards to exercise. I’m really happy with it. I have also increased my water intake and I will continue to drink a lot but I don’t think it needs to be another goal for the upcoming week. Fruits and veggies have been making a regular appearance on my plate and I hope to continue eating them more often.
