Sunday - walked 7 miles.
Monday - Ran 2 miles and took 1 hour kickboxing class.
Tuesday - Ran 2.3 miles and took 1 hour kickboxing class.
Didn't exercise for the rest of the week.
Ate whatever I wanted, during the times I actually had an appetite.
I didn't weigh in this weekend because I was still sick.
My scale at home seemed like I stayed the same, but official weigh-in will wait until next week.
Some of you have asked about how I find time to exercise, so here's my typical weekly schedule:
Sunday: Kickboxing Class (after morning Mass)
Monday: Kickboxing Class (at night, when kids are in bed)
Tuesday: Kickboxing Class (at night, when kids are in bed)
Wednesday: Run (either outside when Phil gets home from work, or at the gym when kids are in bed)
Thursday: Day off (or I'll do some light weights/abs at home at night)
Friday: Run (either outside when Phil gets home from work, or at the gym when kids are in bed)
Saturday: Kickboxing Class (in morning)
Sometimes I get to the gym a little before class starts, so I'll run a mile or two as a warm-up. During my kickboxing classes, I hold 2 pound weights in each hand to increase the calorie burn and tone my arms.
I have to exercise a lot at night because Phil leaves for work at 5:45 am, and there's no way I'm gonna wake up earlier to exercise!!! But if your spouse doesn't leave until later, you can squeeze in some exercise in the morning, or do a DVD workout at nap time, or once the kids are in bed. I really believe everyone has the time to exercise, you just have to make it a priority!!
OK, that's my two cents. Hope you're all doing well :)
