Slim Down Sunday - Week 15

Heartfelt HomeschoolingWhether you want to lose lose weight, get fit, eat healthier or all of the above – it always helps to have support from those around you.

Goal – (Revised) Run in a 5K  

How it Went This Week:

In terms of exercise, this has been an amazing week.  I got my run in on Monday and didn't do half bad if I do say so myself.  I'm not fast by any means, but I see my stamina increasing which is nice! 

In addition, my middle son and I have upped our anty when it comes to TKD.  This week we went to three regular classes and the evening demo practice.  I also went to the adult demo practice on Friday for a total of seven hours of TKD this week!  Wow!  AND - the best part, I didn't die!  lol  I am pretty sore today, Saturday, but no pain no gain. 

While I don't necessarily see seven hours each week, I do see us doing TKD four days a week.  We are loving it!

Now, the weightloss thing is a whole different issue.  It was THAT week of the month only three weeks late.  I've been eating like a horse!  Blech.  I really need to reign my eating in this next week.

What’s my Plan for next Week:

Monday - run using the Week 4 - C25K plan.  Walk for 5, Run for 3, Walk for 1.5, Run for 5, Walk for 2.5, Run for 3, Walk for 1.5, Run for 5.  Phew!

TKD on Tues/Wed/Thurs and demo for 3 hrs on Fri. 

Watch what I'm eating.  Stop pigging out!!!  I need to get this aspect under control!

How do you stop eating when your body wants food all of the time? 


  1. Way to go with the exercise, April! You're a beast!! (meant in the best way possible!)

    Not sure why I already had a link here--I didn't do it! :) The 2nd on is correct. :)

  2. Well done with all that exercise. You're going to be super fit!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement, April! I use Leslie Sansone Walk at Home videos for exercise--really great as the colder weather gets here!
