Today - I worked out at home on the treadmill (3 miles) and was able to push my speed for a few minutes. I got up to 7mph for a few minutes. I am beginning to feel a tad more strength in my leg - quads in particular. One thing I've been doing quite a bit of is walking around with an exerband (elastic workout band) on my leg and doing quad exercises throughout the day. I think it is starting to pay off. Oh but the left leg :(...another story.
Anyway - I'm feeling psyched about my workout schedule and my goals. With hubby's new gig starting next Monday and with him needing to leave the house at 6:30am - I need to be ready to get a good workout at home. I'm setting up the bike trainer this weekend and I think I have everything I need in order to not have any excuses. I will still try to get in to the gym at 5am a few times a week.
So on to the goals for the month:
- I'm feeling really fat (+4lbs ) so I'm targeting -5lbs.
- Minimum 40 miles (bike, run/walk or elliptical) - Stretch goal is 55 (only 1/2 can come from bike - otherwise this is way too wimpy)
- Clean up my diet by meal tracking and continuing my detox
