It’s been another hectic week in my life, no thanks to college. It is getting in the way of my blogging! Although, I do find time to read other blogs everyday! 🙂
I’ve had some great training runs this week for my next half. Yesterday was 6x400s. I did 1 at 6.5 all the way to 7.0 with 400s at 6.2 inbetween. Felt really good especially considering my
hatred dislike for the treadmill. We may be getting a stronger relationship afterall.
Because Tuesday I am on the go from 10:30-5 I threw together some chili in the crock pot that I got from Alyssa’s blog. It was delicious and my apartment smelled so good when I got back with quite the appetite.
The other day was National Pancakes day..although I didn’t have time to whip up pancakes I did have some lite waffles with strawberries & blueberries. Sooo good, makes me hungry just remembering them!
Do you ever have days where you just can’t help but smile?
That was my yesterday. I think I may have even looked silly walking to class with a smile plastered on my face from ear to ear. I found myself so appreciative of all the things I have in my life and all the things I’m able to do. I complain about a bad run, or skipping a training run… then I stumbled upon this picture.
Are you inspired yet?! Here’s a child with prosthetics… taking part in a childrens run for CAF (Challenged Athletes Foundation). Do you think this child (J.J. Miller) has the same worries on a day to day basis? It takes your breath away. Seeing this picture reminded me to be thankful and cherish all the wonderful blessings I have in my life, and not to sweat the small stuff. So be it if I can’t get to the gym one day. It’s a beautiful life, smiling is contagious! 😀
Today started off with a class called PowerFlow–it’s a combination of yoga & pilates. There was a different instructor there today and it was tough. I was not ready to be working my legs as hard as I did. I think that we were in the chair pose for 15 minutes collectively!
Ouch! I’ll definitely be feeling that one tomorrow… maybe even later today.
Afterward I had my coffee (the only way to start a day post-workout) & a delicious egg sandwich.
Lunch was a modified grilled cheese & tomato soup. It’s windy here in Madison and I was chilly. So easy.
Trying to decide what’s on the dinner menu for tonight — suggestions?
I wanted to take the time to set up a few goals for March. Lately I’ve felt very unorganized & I’m not liking it.
- Do AbRipperX 3 times a week. Gotta define those abs before summer! 😉
- Take care of my body–including REST DAYS, ice, and stretching.
- Keep lifting 3x a week. I’ve been letting this slide lately…
- Less procrastination. More motivation.
- I think #1 is enough of a task for me to tackle. Ha.
- Eat more fruits & vegetables.
- Spend more time cooking meals rather than finding something easy.
- Plan out meals on Sunday & get appropriate groceries.
- Drink more plain water.
- Compliment myself on something everyday.
- Spend some time revamping the blog. 🙂
I think that’s a sufficient list to tackle for one month; don’t you think?
Do you find it easier to achieve your goals once you have written them down and shared them with people?
