Fit Mama weeks 4 & 5

Sorry about being MIA last week. I had high hopes of juice fasting, cycling 3 times a day, doing pushups and situps for hours on end...then I woke up and my real life was too busy for much of anything.

I did ride my bike 2 days for 20 minutes each time...and I take back all the bad things I said about my beloved treadmill. Riding on a bike stand is waaaaay more boring. I also lifted upper body weights a few times and did girly pushups. Then we got blasted by the blizzard last Friday, and I didn't need to lift weights because we had tons of snow that needed to be shoveled.

Wednesday, I was going stir crazy and my ankle felt good so I laced up my kicks and hit the treadmill. Happiness! So Monday I rode the bike and lifted weights, Wednesday I ran 2 miles, Thursday was 3.1 and then this morning I ran 3.3.

I'll plan to run 3.5 tomorrow, take Sunday off and start back with my training plan on Monday. eta: (I did run my 3.5 this morning! Hooray! I have my eye on a half marathon that takes place in a month. I'm totally pushing it to think I can do it, but I want to hold it 'out there' as a dream goal.)

We'll pretend there were no nutritional goals....between the 2 blizzards and the Super Bowl, I have eaten well, too well. ;)

If I exercised only half as much as you, I would be losing weight much more quickly! Great job! :)
