Week in Workouts

Good morning!

Well, it is currently the third day of my summer break.

Yes, we have another snow day. 

I figured there would be a delay with the timing of the storm, and there was a delay. I packed up and headed in to work at the normal time in hopes of getting a bigger dent in my report cards finished. About 30 minutes after getting to school they called school off. So, I am staying put and getting more work done.

Haha, and then I blog :)

Here is my recap of steps and workouts for last week.

Total Fitbit steps: 104, 927
Miles traveled: 44.27

AM: This is a funny story ... I forgot to change into gym clothes before leaving (granted, what I wore to bed was VERY similar to workout clothes, but way too hot for the gym). I still stayed and walked on the treadmill. I tried to run, but I was wearing a long sleeve cotton shirt and fleece lined yoga pants. NOT appropriate for a warm gym. I walked about 2 miles.
PM: 60 minute Zumba class + 30 minute core conditioning class

AM: Rest
PM: 60 minutes Zumba class

AM: Rest
PM: 60 minute Zumba class+ 30 minute core conditioning class

AM: Rest
PM: Rest
Achieved 10k steps, to satisfy my Gympact goal.

AM: 3 mile run
PM: Rest

60 minute Zumba class and 2 mile run

5 mile long run (on the treadmill again! Ugh.)

Last week was a good week! My daily FitBit steps are averaging 15k and I am *very* happy with that. I have lost over 7lbs and am still VERY motivated to keep going. My long term goal is to be down at least 30 lbs by July.

Today I am linking up with Jenn, Nikki and Ashley for This Week in Workouts!

FitBit Steps + workout summary 1/27-2/2 (Week 5)

This is week 5 of working out pretty aggressively and I am noticing a trend. I start my weeks out really strong and I'm ready to go Monday morning, but by Wednesday I am beginning to look and feel like a giant blob. I often refer to myself as a drained battery by Thursday.

Kids will do that to you, I suppose.

There really is no way around this. I have thought and thought about what I could change. There is nothing I can change.

Well, that's not true, there is always something you can change, but I am already working hard at making those changes without sacrificing some fun stuff. Last week we went out for dinner twice. Once on Tuesday night with my family to celebrate my birthday and once on Thursday night for sushi. Bill and I both had a rough day at work, and by the time Zumba was over at 7:15 all I could think of was FOOD! So, we splurged and split 5 rolls. It was delicious!

I love/hate sushi though. I cannot accurately log what the calorie count is in them and I always estimate, but I have a feeling my estimates are too low. For example, we split five rolls, so about 25 pieces each (omg) and I estimated that to be 1,000 calories. Does that sound right? A part of me thinks yes, but another part of me thinks no... The part looking at the creamy toppings that are undoubtedly made with mayo and the fried tempura make me think a loud, "NO!"
OH well. It was delish and I barely ate lunch and I worked out hard, so it was earned!

I've rambled enough. On to the stats!

My FitBit stats for last week: 

Total steps: 93,948
Total distance: 40.16 miles 
Total calories burned: 17,703
Calories in vs. calories out: -294
Weight change: Didn't weigh myself this week. 
Avg. sleep duration: Pretty much stopped tracking this, because I am terrible at remembering to put my FitBit "to sleep."

Here are my daily steps and how I moved:

Monday: morning: 3.5 mile run, evening: 30 minute core conditioning class + 60 minute Zumba class
Tuesday: morning: 3.5 mile run, evening: rest
Wednesday: evening: 60 minute Body Attack class
Thursday: evening: 60 minute Zumba 
Friday: morning: 30 Day Shred cardio + strength
Saturday:Rest -
Sunday:2 mile treadmill run

Last week was a little rough for me. We went to Baconfest here in Des Moines and then with the Superbowl on Sunday ... I ate like I could eat what I want. Oops! Turning it around this week though!

This week I am linking up with Jenn at Bliss to Bean!
