Weekly Updates - Blog Hop Sign Up

This past week, I got over my illness.  I've felt better and better each day.  So I took advantage of it, and started up my daily workout routine again.
I am really excited even if a bit apprehensive for this week.  If everything goes well, I should get my first actual running workout in a bit later today.
I only plan on doing as the Dr. and PT recommended and starting out with 20-50 meters of running, preceded and followed by walking.
That may not sound like much, but its a start to a long process of getting back into it all again.
If no pains, or re-pulls on the injury, then I will likely do it again Wednesday at either the same or just slightly more.  Possibly by Friday working up to 100 meters.
So fingers crossed, as long as the injury doesn't act up then I will consider it a success and my slow start to getting back to running again.

As for my weekly weight loss progress, I only lost 1/2 a pound.  But I actually consider that a huge success.  Because after loosing so much weight while I was sick, I was sure I'd gain a good portion of it back when I started feeling better and got my appetite back.
But I really went strict with my diet this week so I could avoid that.  I cut my calories back to 1,000 - 1,200 a day.  I did a 50 minute workout each day, even on the ones I still wasn't feeling the best.  Although I won't lie, I wasn't perfect I did have what I would call 2 cheat dinner meals this week, and on those days I couldn't resist having a Pepsi to go with them (no one is perfect:)
So all in all, I am pretty happy with the week!

A blog hop is a group of blogs that join together for a fun giveaway link up.  Each blog hosts their own giveaway, and at the end of their giveaway will have a link to the rest of the blogs in the hop.  Its a great way to discover new blogs, and find new blog followers.

  7. Great job on your weight loss. That is so good, especially after being sick! And I say have the Pepsi and cheat days sometimes. You never know, you could have felt deprived and not have had the loss you did if you didn't treat yourself a bit. And so excited that you were able to run a bit today! I bet that was such a good feeling! (saw it on your Twitter :) )

    1. Thanks Hailey, and good point! Your right, sometimes you just have to treat yourself!! It was a great feeling to run again, even if short. But so far things are feeling good, so I am going to do it again in the morning, just a tad further:)

  8. That is awesome progress! I bet that feels really good to know you're healing. Great job on the weightloss! And don't worry about the splurge, everyone needs a cheat meal sometimes. It resets the metabolism ;-)
