Fall Challenge: Week 4

This has been a tough week! The girls have been pretty sick and we didn’t sleep much this weekend. But earlier in the week everything was going well and they had a much better night last night. Isn’t it just miserable not to sleep? Friday night, it was Delaney who was up all night (seriously…all night). I took her in Saturday morning to the sick clinic and she had a ruptured ear drum:( Poor thing. She was back to her old self within an hour of her first dose of antibiotics. Kids are resilient, I tell ya.

Darcy had her turn Saturday night and was up most of the night coughing. This poor girl has had one heck of a virus that has included fever, congestion, vomiting, diarrhea, and now, an awful cough. I’ve taken her to the doctor three times within this one virus, and each time has had the same result…just a virus. I just feel bad for her. On Sunday, I called my friend Brittany to get some cough advice (her oldest gets a cough every time he gets sick…I knew she would have some wisdom to share!), and it worked! Last night she slept all night long:)

So I feel like a new woman this morning! Even better, here are my challenge results for week 4…

Weight: LOST 3 LBS!!!! WOOHOO!! I think I finally broke my little plateau!

Inches: lost 1/2 inch

Workouts: I made it to all of my scheduled gym workouts (four total), but didn’t get the Saturday one in because I needed to focus on Delaney.

Eating: Doing better. I haven’t had many sweets at all, and I’m not snacking after dinner anymore.

Goals for this week: Still working on getting everyone healthy and back to normal. I want to make all of my workouts, and continue doing well with nutrition. I got a heart rate monitor that I’ve been wearing and it has helped my workouts so much. It motivated me to keep my heart rate up and not take as many breaks. Love it!

Our friend Kenny joined our gym, so Matt and he will start working out this week too.

Here’s the workout schedule for the week:

  • Monday: Treadmill run and total body circuit training
  • Tuesday: Off
  • Wednesday: Body Pump
  • Thursday: Cardio (1 hour, bike and run)
  • Friday: Bike and Body flow
  • Saturday: long run outside
  • Sunday: Off
I’m really happy with the results this week! I hope I can keep it up!
