K.A.I.A Week 1 Check in

The first week of the K.A.I.A Challenge is going great over here. I was sick a couple of days which put me out of commission for exercising, but I have been eating really well.

K.A.I.A. Week 1 Stats:

  • Ran 2 times for a total of 11.03 miles. I did one 5 mile run and one 6 mile run.
  • Biked 5 glorious miles
  • Did my Plank A Day every day.
  • Lost 2 pounds!

My breakfasts this week have included a nectarine and something like an English muffin or one waffle.

Lunches have been either a 6 inch Turkey sandwich on wheat from Subway or a salad and fruit from a place by my work that has a salad bar.

Dinners are pretty random. I made chicken cordon bleu one night, homemade chicken noodle soup another night (this actually lasted for two meals), and also did a quick and easy Bertolli pasta dinner. I had fresh steamed green beans with the chicken cordon bleu which is always a delicious way to make a meal healthy. Dinners have probably been a little too high in sodium but I have been drinking water like a maniac, so that helps. My chicken noodle soup looks something like this but mine has way more veggies in it! That IS the best part!

I’m kicking my ass, do you mind?!

Liar liar kicking my ass

Last nights workout:
5 miles in 55:36 (11:07 pace)
2×25 girl pushups
Plank A Day

Wooo! Finally a kick ass run! Felt SOOO good!

Ok guys, I am so determined right now. I am giving myself 1 month to kick ass and tone this bod up. Hubs parents are flying up over Labor Day weekend and my parents are flying up the weekend after that. I am giving myself until labor day weekend to seriously drop this extra baggage. I know I have said this before, but I was only half way determined before. I am totally serious now. I MIGHT even consider posting before and after pictures on here. We will see how brave I am.

I have started getting my plan together and it is going to be awesome. I am not going to focus just on running. I am going to incorporate a lot of strength training and cross training as well. Push ups will be happening because my arms are losing definition at a rapid pace. Ab work will be a MUST. There is nothing that makes you feel more huge than serious muffin top.

So true.

I am going to write up a training plan for the month and I am going to stick to it. Let’s call it “Kick Ass In August”! Who is with me?!

I have some other plans for August too. Has anyone noticed my lack of book reviews? I haven’t posted one because I haven’t read any books since The Hunger Games series. I have been on page 1 of The Help for a couple months now. So, in August I am going to read TWO books. That is my goal. It’s all about time management, people!

Thirdly, I want to FINALLY finish getting our house decorated. We are so close I can taste it. I think we just have our bedroom and guest room to decorate. Potential home tour post when I’m done? I think we can make that happen.

There you you have it folks!

What are your goals for August? Wanna join my K.A.I.A. Challenge?! πŸ™‚
