Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few days!! Last week and this week are fairly busy for Pres and me. But it’s a good thing to have lots to do so I’m not complaining! Let’s start with some happy news: I lost 2.6lbs this week for a total of 20.2lbs in 6 weeks!!!!! I super happy. Still averaging about 3lbs a week which is fabulous.
Last week I stopped logging every meal in MyFitnessPal and just tried to remember where I was at calorie wise but was more relaxed about it. I had Jamba Juice twice last week – yum. I also had the chopped salad from Portillos twice. As you can see I eat out more when I’m busy and haven’t adequately planned meals, but it seemed to work out ok for me last week.
I worked out four times last week. I was feeling drained so I didn’t push myself beyond what I committed to. I did the elliptical twice, rode my bike once, and attempted running once. The run was the worst but best workout of the week. My friend and I went to the park that has a 1.2 mile loop we did it twice and walked a lot and ran some. Holy moly! I am not in running shape. It was exciting to feel out just how much work I’d have to do to get in shape for a 5k but it makes for a good goal. I only like running outside so I can only do it when Pres is occupied elsewhere.
This weekend I worked on a practice cake for P’s birthday next weekend. I am making a six layered rainbow cake so I made a three layer one this weekend to practice. It’s not from scratch because just baking six different layers and constructing the cake is enough for a novice baker like me. It turned out great so I’m optimistic about next weekend.
I have a lot of cleaning and prep for this coming weekend. I’m also helping my aunt pack her condo to move this week so I am crazy busy. I planned out meals and shopped this morning so my food will be good till the party. Exercise is probably not going to be happening too much but i’ll be busy enough. Ok time for me to get to work!!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
