My first full week back at home was a success.

It was stressful, crazy, but overall there were a lot of positives that came out of this week.

 

My training for the week was as follows:


Monday
 
– Test #1, Walking, Arc Trainer, and Rowing

Stress Fracture Test #1: About 0.2 miles slow jogging the indoor track at the gym.

I finished it out with 30 minutes walking around the track, 30 minutes on the arc trainer, and 10 minutes rowing.

 

Tuesday – Arc Trainer, Walking, and Weight Training

I started with 20 minutes on the arc trainer, 30 minutes of walking, and then finished with lower body weights.

 

Wednesday – Walking and Strength Training

45 minute walk outside with my puppy then some ab and lower body weights at the gym in the evening.

 

Thursday – Test #2

Stress Fracture Test #2: 0.5 mile run on grass to test out my leg.

 

Friday – Arc Trainer and Weight Training

Just over 30 minutes on the arc trainer and followed that up with bicep and tricep weights.

 

Saturday – Test #3, Walking, Spinning, Arc Trainer, and Weights

Stress Fracture Test #3: Before we headed to the gym I ran 1 mile on soft ground (a grass field). It was very slow and thankfully there was no pain! It was cold and windy though so I was happy I was only outside for a short time.

We then went to the gym for another hodgepodge cardio day.

I had planned out my workout last night so that I have a plan. Sometimes when I go to the gym I end up getting frustrated watching others run and end up not really doing anything.

Planning my workout really helps to avoid a bunch of wasted time.

I started with 20 minutes walking around the indoor track to get warmed up.

I then completed 45 minutes of spinning.

I haven’t spun in quite a while so I figured it was about time I did it again.

The final two parts of my workout were some bicep and back weights and then 20 minutes on the arc trainer.

Sunday – Rest Day

 

Week in Summary

Workout Days – 5 (I don’t count Thursday as a workout day because all I really did was the test on my leg)

Rest Days – 2

 

After we got back from the gym I fixed myself a healthy smoothie.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a smoothie and decided it was time to bring them back!

Ingredients:

1/2 frozen banana

Almond Milk (not quite sure how much I put in as I didn’t measure it out)

Ice

Chocolate Protein Powder

2 handfuls of spinach

 

It didn’t mix up quite as well as I had hoped but it was still delicious.

It has now been 2 days since I made a point to refocus my diet around my health and so far it has been great.

I’ve been eating NUTRITIOUS and HEALTHY foods for my body and not restricting.

I treat myself usually once a night with something small and since I have improved my diet I have found myself snacking much less on junk.

 

How did your workouts go this week? 

Are you ready for Thanksgiving next week? Me? No! I haven’t even started planning out what we are having. I guess I should get on that soon!
