Whew, this week was tough, but I did it! The potty training I mentioned last week didn’t end up happening (after one entire day, she still wasn’t even getting it, even a little bit, so we’ll try again in a few months), but I did pretty well over the weekend without indulging too much (although DID have more than just 2 pieces of Easter candy each day, whoops!) despite not being stuck at home. I hit my 1st and 2nd diet bet weigh-ins this week, plus have one more tomorrow (they haven't finalized the payouts yet, so I’ll report back next week on those). And I finally hit the 150’s, which is SO exciting to me! There is just something about hitting the next “tens” spot that really just excites me!
I didn’t get in a lot of exercise this week. I still am not feeling 100% (congested/coughing) but overall feeling much better; but just ultimately didn’t take the time to get the exercise in. I did one walk, two runs, and one night of strength training. Granted, the 3 days of exercise (I don’t count the walk, that’s just an “extra”) were GOOD, solid workouts, but I really am trying to run 3x a week and strength train 2x a week. So, with that goal in mind, this week was well, weak. However, I DID shave off another 54 seconds on my 5k time since last week. I’m really trying to get under a sub-30 5k, and I think in a few more weeks, I may actually hit it (on the treadmill at least, outside it is harder to control my speed). I have a goal in 2015 to race a sub-30 5k, so I’m putting a lot of effort into my speed lately. I’m so close!
