This has been another bad week fitness wise. I only worked out today due to the bathroom renovation. The kids haven't been able to nap or have quiet time and thus I have not been able to work out. I took Davey for a jog today. It was the first jog with Davey since the fall. I am so looking forward to warmer weather so I can do this regularly with him. A really cool thing about jogging with Davey now is he played with his Leapster 2 aka the kiddy crack and didn't even seem to notice how long we are gone.
Since I've given up the artificial sweeteners, I'm finding it hard to drink enough. It was easier when the water was flavored by Crystal Light. But I've made a big effort to insure that I'm getting all my water and staying hydrated. I always have my water bottle with me now.
I signed up for a running class at our local park and rec. It is taught by a triathlon coach but is for runners of all levels. I thought it would be great to get tips on training by an expert. It also insures that I get to run another day during the week. It starts in May. I plan on starting to jog/run again before the classes starts. I'm in sad running shape again after taking a break for a couple of months. I plan to keep up with Jillian Micheal's Making the Cut interval workouts but plan to cut back from 4 days a week to 2-3 days a week to make room for running too. I don't want to give up all the muscle I gained.
I have no idea if I gained or loss this week. I'm not sure where the scale is in this mess. I'm hoping I didn't gain but I wouldn't be surprised if I did. We have eaten out more this week than usual and even good choices have more calories than what I make at home. So I'm getting back on track and looking forward to spring.
