Last weekend I got a kick in the pants and realized I needed to move my body more. And drink more water. And make better food choices. So I re-started. Here is how I did. (Somewhat embarrassing results coming...)
five-minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of
walking for a total of 20 minutes.
Monday - Brisk five-minute warm up walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and
two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
Tuesday - 1.5 mile walk
Wednesday - 50 minute leisurely walk around the mall (yes, I was a mall walker with a stroller!)
Thursday - off
Friday - off
Saturday - off
The good news? I lost 3 pounds. That is sad. I also drank more water Mon-Wed than I have recently, but then Thursday - Saturday the water drinking went down hill. I made better food choices and that helped a lot too. I originally planned for more working out but, life got in the way. So, we start again this week.
My goals for this week? Go faster/harder on the running and make it at least 5 days of movement!
I also confess to liking the treadmill. I know I go longer on a treadmill than if I were to venture out on the streets by myself.
How did you do this week?
