"Don't let the fat chick beat you"?

I have been racing for about 5 years now. I am not a typical runner or even triathlete. I fight with serious medical conditions every step of the way, but each step makes me stronger. I have two boys both with special needs and I have learned to chalk that up to making me stronger as well.

It is with sad heart that I must report that lupus has won the battle this year, but trust me when I say the war is far from over! My racing days are not over by any stretch of the imagination. This is just a minor setback that will make me stronger.

Controlled by week, a mindless face stuffer by weekend

I am not even a week into this whole Weight Watchers journey and I have already realized just how bad my weekends are. I knew they were bad but I didn’t realize they were that bad. It started Friday night and continued all the way through last night. I was cheating and going online entering all my information, I am going to see how I do actually writing it down on paper before entering it into the system. I am not going to get into how much I exceed my points, luckily I have plenty of activity points, but I do not want to be relying on them!
Last week’s plan
Monday – 45 minute Elliptical – after dinner walk 45 minutes Elliptical
Tuesday – 45 minute treadmill (primarily walking) – after dinner walk mom duties over rode all plans
Wednesday – 45 minute Elliptical – yoga 45 minutes Elliptical
Thursday – 45 minute treadmill (primarily walking)/short ride (no more than 30 minutes) 45 treadmill, 30 minute walk (in flip flops, huge mistake) to pick up kiddo from gymnastics
Friday – 45 minute Elliptical 45 stationary bikes (did regular for 30 minutes but my butt hurt to much so I did the last 30 minutes on recumbent)
Saturday – Incline/Waldo Canyon Kiddo #1 went to Urgent Care
Sunday – Ride over an hour of swimming, felt great!

All in all, I am happy with what I did last week.

week: the goal is…
y – Weight training and swimming
Tuesday – 45 minutes treadmill/elliptical machine and yoga
Wednesday – Weight training and swimming (Weigh in day!)
Thursday – 45 minutes treadmill/elliptical machine and hour bike
Friday – Swimming, bike or rest
Saturday – Yoga
Sunday - Swimming
