Last week I started following the ME plan. While the diet plan was something similar to what I had done in the past, it took a while to get readjusted to the plan. Overall, I did well, even if I fell off the sugar wagon. Friday, I foolishly thought I could share part of a Cinnabon with my daughter. This triggered my sugar craving and I all I wanted was sugar all day. This craving is the reason I need to work to minimize it in my diet. I picked myself up from my sugar coma on Saturday and made smarter choices the rest of the weekend.
My workouts for the week looked like this:
Monday: Strength + 30 min walk
Tuesday: 30 min walk
Wednesday: Strength + 20 min walk
Thursday: 60 min walk
Friday: 30 min walk
Saturday: Strength + 30 min walk
Sunday: No specific workout
My weight ending last week was 248lbs. I lost any increase I picked up over Thanksgiving. I am not on track to be at 240lbs by the end of the year, but I keeping it as my goal because you never know what will happen. I had said I would be taking photo's of my scale, but I never have my phone with me when I first get up. By the time I remember I have already had water and coffee so I don't take the photo. :)
The plan this weeks is to repeat last weeks workouts.
Strength workouts: 20 minutes, each exercise 12x, as many rounds as I can complete in the time allotted. I am currently using 10lbs weights.
Squat/Row | Chest Press Crunch | Curl, Extension holding a squat | Squat Press
Cardio: Walking, with short run intervals. I am still working to get my IT band feeling better, so my running is limited.
Food Goals: Take one day at a time, limit sugar intake (cookies and treats). If I must have a treat I plan to delay it as along as I can to avoid getting the craving to binge on sugar.
How was your weekend?
