Guess I've got to do some dissecting...
I know that with the effort I put in this week, I built some serious muscle and did some serious cardio. Here's a peek at my log:
Mon: AMA Test
Tues: 20 min bike / 20 min tmill
Wed: 30 min swim / 30 min bike
Thur: Full body strength training
Sat: 40 min bike / 20 min tmill
I tried to keep my HR in Zone 2 (about 120bpm). That was difficult on the bike, but if I ride at like 90 rpm, then I can usually get it up there. Problem is that 90 is hard to maintain. Overall, a great week of exercise.
In the food department, I controlled portions and calories quite well. Far too many processed foods though and definitely not enough veggies. I started back on a multi-vitamin, so hopefully that'll help a bit. But of course, I know nothing is a substitute for the real deal.
I also tried to focus on drinking a lot more water than I usually do. I succeeded, but there's still room for improvement. I had at least 70 oz per day and I'd like to see 100. I typically get maybe 50oz? Anyway, I know this is a weak area for me but very necessary for weight loss.
This coming week, I have an additional goal: Bed before 9pm. Last week, I don't think I was even in bed before 10:30 or 11. My butt was draggin' all week long.
Ummmm yeah, I think there could be a few factors here as to why the scale and I are at a stalemate. That's ok, I plan to kick the scale's butt this next time 'round!!
So... how was your week?
