Week 24 in Review and Stepping Stones Week 25

Pinned Image


     Good morning and Happy Father’s Day. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to go to Church and celebrate this special event this morning and then go fishing with the two most amazing fathers in the world – My Dad and My hubby Tony! It’s going to be a fun day and very busy so I will keep this brief. Week 24 was AMAZING! I love working with my new trainer. He is putting together a new set of plans for me so this weeks Stepping Stones may change along the way. I did weight training with him twice last week, put in over 14 miles of cardio, 9.8 of which was jogging. I did meet all of my fitness goals but my calorie averages were closer to 1500 with some days lower than 1400 and some higher but the extra 4.8 miles of cardio (an extra hour) burned extra calories making up the difference. My abs are still sore from all the great exercise at the gym. I find that encouraging and exciting. I jogged 3 miles yesterday and after a day of only jogging about a mile and then a day of complete rest the pain that I had been experiencing was almost undetectable and I feel no pain in the legs at all this morning. Week 25 is going to be great!
