The working out, on the other hand… well, we’ll just let the workouts speak for themselves.
Monday: Run 15 minutes [AM], BodyPump (heavy) [PM] Ran 1.72 miles in the morning. Went on a 20 minute bike ride with the boy + hit the volleyball back and forth for 15 or so minutes. Then PUMPED. Success.
Tuesday:Run 15 minutes [AM], 6 mile run [PM] Ran 1.76 miles in the morning. Did another 6 on the treadmill that night. Rounded it out with 10 minutes of core Pilates. Check, check, check.
Wednesday:Run 15 minutes [AM], 2-3 mile run + Happy Hour Spin Class (doesn’t that just sound fun? Put “Happy Hour” in the title of anything and I’ll probably think it’s a good idea) [PM] Ran a sleepy 1.68 miles in the morning. Did an easy 3 mile run at Memorial Park immediately after work while I killed time for the spin class. Spent 45 sweat-filled, blissful minutes spinning. Loved every single second. Big, fat check.
Thursday:Run 15 minutes [AM], Jackie Warner Total Body Circuit Training [PM] Ran 1.73 miles in the morning. Cancelled my date with Jackie in lieu of Jillian and did Ripped in 30, level 3. Lots of legs. Semi-check, simply because Jillian is shorter than Jackie.
Friday:Run 15 minutes [AM], Friday 5k [PM] 1.75 miles when I first woke up. Followed that with a 5k around the neighborhood. Knew that my long run was doomed. But still, check.
Saturday:10 miles. I haven’t had a solid double digit run in a while. It’s time. + BodyPump (light) 10 minutes on the elliptical [5 before Pump, 5 after. getting crazy here!]. BodyPump. 20 minutes of incline walking. Zero running. Meh.
Sunday:REST DAY = the BEST day. Major success on the resting. But I failed at life.
While I didn’t run 10 miles this weekend, I’m not too cut up about it. Sometimes, it’s just better not to run. I didn’t feel like it, so I didn’t. Perks of not training for anything.
I am failing big time when it comes to my diet and nutrition. Just straight up binge eating on the weekends. I know it’s a problem. I don’t know how to stop it. I do need some help in some way, shape or form. Suggestions are welcome.
Also, I did get to see one of my very best friends from college this weekend, who I haven’t seen since last summer. I always get nervous that we’re not going to have anything in common anymore, because we don’t really keep in touch, but then we always just fall right back into being best friends. And I love that.
And, as usual, I can’t ever seem to get enough of this face:
Seriously. Just the best.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a workout plan for the week. Until then, I’ll be drowning my binge eating sorrows in salad.
Seriously, suggestions on how to get eating habits under control are needed. GO.
