Slim Down Sunday Meme - Week 19

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:

Sorry I missed last week - time got away from me...  ;-)

This week has been interesting.   The hubby and I have committed to running together on Mondays and Saturdays.  We checked out the new satellite Y on Monday and ran about two miles on the treadmills.  That was fun! 

TKD kept us busy the rest of the week.  We're getting ready for our first big demo on December 3rd, and with the Thanksgiving holiday in the middle, we're scheduling longer practices.  In fact, we have a three hour one today.

The only problem with that is that I took a really good kick to the shin on Wednesday and again on Friday that has resulted in a lot of swelling and bruising down around my inner ankle.   Must have broken a blood vessel or something because the swelling/bruising has to be from pooling blood.  No pain, but the swelling is really irritating! 

Thus, no running for hubby and me on Saturday.  I'm a little nervous how the leg will respond to three hours on Sunday, but we'll just have to see.  I see lots of ice and Advil in my near future.

What’s my Plan for next Week:

Thanksgiving week!  Can you believe it?  Here already.  Christmas will be here in no time!  Yikes!

My goal is portion control.  I'm gonna gobble; I just don't want to end up wobbling.  So...  Portion control.  That will be the mantra until the New Year me thinks. 

Keeping up with the exercise is big.  I'm hoping the ankle cooperates and we can keep our plan of running in the works. 

Are you ready for the holiday?  What recipes do you use that are delicious and still cut calories/fat?

  1. Hope you manage to sort out the swelling and that it doesn't affect your training too much. Well done again with the exercise, you're doing really well.

    I probably won't worry too much with portion control at Christmas, just have what I want. I feel it may be the last Christmas for Ced so I don't want to put any retrictions on the celebrations at all.
