I am happy about my weight. I know it not a great downward loss but considering all the half marathon stuff and to be honest race eating, I am thrilled with the number. You should have seen the meal I ate before and after the race. Night before I had a CPK Tostada pizza and 1/2 order of potstickers. I ate all but one slice of pizza. On race day, right after I had a banana and bagel, then about 2 hours after a big breakfast – bacon, cheese and avocado omelet, home fries, English muffin, OJ, and some French toast. It was a seriously loaded breakfast with all the trimmings. I knew I wouldn’t be having a breakfast like that in a long time.
Now is the time for me to shift focus and plan out. Now that the marathon is done I will no longer be doing distance and time training. Honestly I am happy to be done with that. It took so much time. Not to mention I am getting squishy from lack of resistance training. Right now my ideal week would be – a yoga class, 2 to 3 kettlebell workouts, a hike, and / or running. I want to run a full 5k non stop. I have to think about the timing, when and where.
On the food front - Our (hubs and I) fitness competition ends in 6 weeks. It’s only 6 weeks. I can buckle down and make bigger changes to my diet since I am no longer marathon training. I need to plan out this one to but I think the biggest change I can make is toss the bread out and bump up the veggies big time.
How was your week?
