Exercise 04/22 - 04/28
I had another good week although I felt like I ate more (and worse) than I should. That probably shows in my weekly weigh-in (I gained 0.9 pounds at weigh in Saturday). Still:
Monday - I feel like I probably walked around at lunch hour but I'm not seeing it on the graph. I also did a 30 minute core workout. I combined exercises from pre-dawn and the box of cards I got.
Tuesday - 4.2 in 50 (11:54) plus walking warm up/down. The phone GPS showed less but it was obviously off so I mapped it and came up with slightly more than this. I sort of split the difference. Ran 1:30/:45 intervals on the hills by the university. Very humid.
Wednesday - 11.5 in 1:00 biking. Easy heading out and then hard coming back. Either I hit the wind or was having trouble with my bike again. Or some combination of the two.
Thursday - 4 miles in 1:00. Mostly just walking with a few minutes of running. Very tired legs.
Saturday - 4.2 miles in 1:20. All walking. Very humid out.
Sunday - 16.28 in 1:20 biking. Very nice ride but the ground was wet. I hit one spot of mud and started to skid out. I kept myself upright and was quite impressed.
Sunday - 30 minutes core work. Very challenging. I mixed the Pre-dawn and the box of fitness cards. I was already feeling too hot in the house and was pretty much drenched by the end of the core work. Later ChocolateWife wanted to try some core exercises and noticed that the box shows a few other core moves mixed in.
As I said my weight was up .9 pounds as of Saturday. But I had worse diet as well as getting my period on Sunday so that probably had some effect.
I'm still using my phone and Noom to count my steps. I find it very motivating but I'm also aware that it is not all that accurate. I went for a walk on Saturday and did a few spot checks. My actual step count was about 120 steps per minute and the phone was logging 70 steps per minute (a very big difference). Still, it's fun to sort of note the steps and strive to reach the (increasing) goal every day.
Monday - 7,808
Tuesday - 15,320
Wednesday - 9,305
Thursday - 11,652
Friday - 9,502
Saturday - 12,013
Sunday - 9,007
As you can see, it is obvious that it's not an accurate count and it awards some steps for bike rides (Wednesday and Sunday) but it's still fun to look at.
