This week I feel good about the exercise I did, but calorie wise I went way off track.  I have a couple of ideas why I went so off course, but the most important thing is to refocus and stick to my goals.  I am not sure the scale has moved at all this month, but I'm not going to let myself give up!

Activity this week:
Ran 23 miles
Level 1 Of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (26 min)
Level 1 of Jillian Michaels Shed and Shred (45 min)
Crunch-Joy of Yoga (36 min)

I used to do the 30 Day Shred all the time and I was glad to see that it didn't feel anywhere near as hard as it used to.  I think I'll try level 2 next time.  In Shed and Shred I am still up in the air. but the inner thigh exercise made me sore for a few days so I may need to try that move at least again!  Hopefully if it makes you sore it actually doing something too.  Years ago the Crunch video was my favorite at home yoga workout.  I still remembered all the things the instructor was going to say and I was a bit sad at all the flexibility I have lost over the years.  I guess that is just incentive to keep at it!

According to MyFitnessPal I went over my weekly calories by 815, so not as bad as the week before.  I only went over the first four days so hopefully I've gotten back on the right track.  I think i said last week my goal was to stay under or at my calories for the week, well I am going to try that again for this week.

  1. Great job! I need to try the Shred workout, I have heard great things about it.

    I eat like crazy... for all the running I do, I never lose weight yet I need/want to lose 5 pounds. I need to focus on nutrition and cutting back just a bit.

    Have a great week!

  2. I like Crunch's Candlelight Yoga. I'll have to try Joy of Yoga.
