Week 4 recap

Week 4- March 29-April 4:


Monday: 28 minute run + 10 minute warm-up cool down. I miscalculated my turn around time in addition to running back way faster than I went out, thus making the run 2 minutes short. I was over 5 minutes off and had to run around to try to make up some time but still ended up being 2 minutes short. I had an off day.

Tuesday: 30 minutes walking on treadmill, Mrytle, 10 minutes ab work with medicine ball. my neck is out!!

Wednesday: 30 minutes running, just shy of 3 miles + 10 minute warm-up/cool down

Thursday: 30 minute walk, Mrytle, lower ab crunches (neck is still bad), took Guy for a nice walk

Friday: Good Friday. Rest day

Saturday: 7 miles

Start: 7:33 a.m.

Finish: 9:09 a.m.

Its still going to take me forever to finish a marathon!

Sunday: Happy Easter! I am very sad to say that I did no form of workout what so ever. I did not even take my poor pup on a walk. I am very dissapointed in myself and will never let this happen again


lbs: 116.2 (I cheated and weighed myself Saturday in preperation of the upcoming festivites)


Thighs: 20.5

Hips: 31

Waist: 25

As you can see I have lost at least an inch from every measuremnt: thighs, hips, and waist. Pretty awesome!

Monday: wow what can I even say about today. I didn't sleep well and 3am came all too quickly. I ate Doritos before I ran and I am going to have a bagel for dinner. Oh well, tomorrow is another day

Tuesday: still not doing so great today. I had a few cookies but I was running around all day at work so I think that I needed the sugar. I don't feel like putting any type of meal together so your guess is as good as mine as to what my dinner will be.

Wednesday: I possibly ate half a box of Cheerios! I seriously have a problem with cereal. NO more cereal in the house!

Thursday: I am back on track. My poor husband went to have cereal for a snack and was like, "wow, you really did eat the whole box" I told him I have a cereal addiction!

Friday: GOOD FRIDAY this is one of the most special times of the year and I eat very minimally so I have extra time to reflect on the meaning of this day.

Saturday: no problem eating well during the day. My long run works like magic controlling what I want to eat. I always crave good healthy foods in small portions. It's the nighttime that I have to watch out for! We went to dinner at Carmine's in the city. We had a great time catching up with friends and loading up on carbs. I did walk around the city in heels so maybe I burned some extra calories. I know I have good leg muscles though, because walking for that length of time wasn't even a problem.

Sunday: HAPPY EASTER of course I ate a ton of mashed potatoes, eggplant parm, bread, and several other variates of carbs. I had a great day spending time with my family and calories do not count on Holidays, its a fact based on scientific evidence.


  1. Hahaha I like that calories don't count on holidays part!! I'm sticking to that!! I've been lacking in the food dept too. Cam and I have been so busy and I've just been having vegetable spring rolls for dinner haha. We finally had the lentil soup last night so that was good!! :)

  2. I love lentils and they are so good for you! It's hard to workout and eat great all at once.
