Ugh. That dang TOM thing!
Although I can't really blame that for the over-eating, I CAN blame it for the increased appetite.
The downrightcrazyinsatiable appetite.
I can also blame it for water retention.
So no change for me this week, sadly.
I'm happy about the amount of exercise I got though ~ a 2-mile walk/run, two 3-mile walk/runs, a 2-mile bike ride, and a 3-mile walk. And Days 1 and 2 of Week 5 of the 200 Sit-Ups challenge. I feel REALLY good about the amount of exercise I got!!
I had to rethink my strategy for the Push-ups, Sit-ups, and Squats challenges this week though. Not only were they starting to take up a lot of time each morning, but with getting back into jogging, I find my shoulders and thighs are getting enough of a work-out right now!
So I'm pursuing the goal of 200 sit-ups IN ONE SHOT for March 31. This morning, I did 265 in 9 sets, but they'll have me doing 368 in 9 sets before the end of the challenge. I guess they figure if you can do that many with a few one-minute breaks here and there, then you should easily able to handle 200 without a break!
The push-ups I'll work on this summer, once running doesn't tire out my shoulders any more (that always sounds so weird! Does running do that to anyone else's shoulders?!), and the squats I'll pick up next winter, once I can't run outdoors anymore.
So it wasn't exactly the stellar week I was planning on having. I was definitely not the boost I was hoping to be for The A-Team, but I can't help but be a little happy with myself in the exercise department, even if it didn't translate to a loss this week!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
