Road Trip Review 8/4 - 8/10

I'm going to make this short and sweet, with no map for this week (that I will upload at the time of the post, but I may edit and include it later)

Sunday: 4.5 miles (1.75mi "everyday" / 2.75mi bike ride)
Monday: 3.5 miles (30min weed pulling = .5mi, 1hr zumba = 1mi, 1.75mi "everyday", 1mi bike ride, 30min core workout on balance ball = .5mi)
Tuesday: 5.5mi (3.5mi bike ride, 2mi jog)
Wednesday: 4.5mi (1.75mi "everyday", 1hr walk AM = 1mi, 1.75mi jog late PM)
Thursday: 4.5mi (1.75 "everyday", 1hr step class = 1mi, 1hr dance class = 1mi, .75mi dog walk)
Friday: 4.5mi (3.5mi bike ride, 1hr zumba class = 1mi)
Saturday: 4.5mi (1hr zumba = 1mi, 2hr weed pulling/gardening = 2mi, 1.5mi "everyday")

Total: 31.50mi
Goal: 24.50mi
Difference: +7.00miles

Total Weekly Deficit (as of Week 3) : -14.41miles
Total Weekly Deficit (as of this week) : -7.41miles

I would just like to say that if you put yourself in the right mindset, you can do anything. I told myself last week that a 14mile deficit is NOT ACCEPTABLE. And that I need to make up at least 1mile everyday to make up for it. Well, with the exception of Monday, when I had family needs to attend to, I made and/or surpassed my goal every day! I managed to cut my deficit in HALF!! YAY!

Starting Thursday I had decided that why pay for a gym membership if I'm not going to use it?! So, I started using it again! I have been to the gym every day since Thursday and this week have planned out classes to take to make sure I get there every day. Plus, if I'm feeling stressed (which will no doubt happen as my boss just fired 2 cashiers we already couldn't afford to lose....) I have my gym bag packed and I can just call John and let him know I'm not coming home right away!

I'm actually on my way to the gym right now, which is why there is no map up, but I will have to upload it later today or possibly tomorrow.... we'll see what happens!

Happy week everyone!

  1. You had a great week!

    Way to make up some of the difference.

    I feel like you have had your "light bulb" moment over the past week and once again are focused on you and your well-being!

    Good work! See you in Troutville!!
