the weekly chase #21



On Tuesdays I link up my Weekly Chase goals with Mindy from Road Runner Girl. Below is a recap from how the goals from last week went over, and my new goals for this week.

Weekly goals for August 18–24; recap

Goal #1 - Daily goals – 
A: Log and stay under calorie goals. 
B: Drink 48 ounces of water.
C: Eat healthier snacks/meals. 
D. Hit 10,000 steps per day via Fitbit.

Well, not the best week, if I'm being honest. I logged all of my meals, but did not stay under my calories over the weekend. I did ok with water except for on Sunday. I did ok with healthy snacking and eating until Friday. I only hit my steps a few days over the week, since I was resting some minor injuries (hip, knee, PF); numbers were as follow: 4526, 6686, 6898, 17925, 9228, 24451, 10168.

Goal #2 - Continue Dopey training. Cross train three days.

This went well. I missed one day of running, so only did two days, but did do three days of cross training (Bar Method classes), and did a good bit of walking on Sunday.

Goal #3 - Foam/stick roll and stretch daily. I'm also going to add in icing my knee to this goal. I ordered a Dr. Cool wrap, so I hope it comes soon so I can use it this week. I'm hoping if I have something as easy to use as that, versus the darn ziplock bags I fill with ice that then leak, I'll be more inclined to ice. I'm going to admit now, that I doubt I'll be doing any icing until that comes... I know, it's horrible, but it's the truth.

I used my Stick for rolling 5 out of 7 days, and got in stretching for my PF daily (along with other stretching). I received my wrap and used it Saturday after my trail run (knee and used a bag of ice for my feet), and then did more icing on Sunday night.

Goal #4 - Lose 1 pound. Though I weigh myself everyday, I've decided to use Friday's as my official weigh-in days in order to track my gains/losses. Though I am more concerned with building lean muscle and decreasing my body fat percentage, losing a pound by Friday would be a bonus. I'm looking to get down 5 pounds total, and have lost 1 so far.

Was Friday a bad day to choose? It seems like when I look at data, Wednesday is the best day haha. Anyway, I weighed the same. I guess that's better than gaining.

    1. Thanks! Ugh, it's tough, isn't it? I don't get enough either, even when I'm trying really hard. I read about people that drink 100 oz a day – how?! Haha.
