Welcome to week 2 of my fitness recap! It’s been a crazy week, but those are bound to come from time to time, right? Anyway, thanks for stopping by.
I’ve done pretty well on my diet this week, though I fell off a little last night. I made “Burritos Palmero” (which is just home made soft tacos) for the family, and I made the mistake of making guacamole as well. It was GOOD (even with the whole wheat tortillas and without the black beans)! It was so good in fact, I ate a little more than I should have. Hopefully, it won’t set me off my weight loss pace to much!
My exercise routine has been a little messed up this week. My 11-year-old son, Christian, came down with pneumonia Monday, and between an ER trip, follow-up doctor visits and very little sleep, it’s been tough to get up at 4:45 to get a ride in before starting the day. I did manage to get a ride in yesterday and today, now that Christian is doing better.
On a side note, today, I had a great bike ride. Normally, I ride with my mp3 player cranking some Hawk Nelson or Reliant K, or something like that to get me pumped, but this morning I realized I had left my player at work (charging). I was pretty bummed about it, but once I got going, “something” in the back of my mind said “Why don’t you spend a little time praying while you ride?”.
I’ve got to tell you, it was one of the best times of prayer I have had in a while…not just talking, but listening as well. I believe I will be leaving the mp3 player behind more often!
So here’s the numbers for this week: As of this morning, I’m down to 217 lbs. That’s -4 lbs since last Friday and a total of -11 lbs since I started three weeks ago. Since I am also doing some strength training in my exercise routine, I am (hopefully) adding some weight due to increased muscle. Because of this, I am also adding a new measurement this week: Body Fat %. As of today, it is 20.6% according to this test. My goal is to get to around 15%.
Well, that is it for me for this week. How did your fitness week turn out?
