Happy Motivate Me Monday! Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away! Seriously, where does the time go? On that same note… there are only two and a half weeks left in 2014! It is time to buckle up and finish this ride strong.
Without further ado, below I share what I did for my fitness activities last week as well as what I have planned to do this week. Plus I am sharing my weekly meal plan using the planning method from the 21 Day Fix.
My activities mid-week came to a halt when my oldest complained of a sore throat, mild fever, and headache. We visited the urgent care Wednesday night to find out that he indeed had strep throat. Gah! Of course, my children share everything yucky and germ filled… so we made sure to have everyone checked out. Thankfully only two children were down for the count and are currently taking antibiotics.
I pray that myself and my other currently healthy child does not get sick. There is no one to take care of Mommy if she gets sick.
I am thankful for my health, the ability to get out and run the trails (even if I am pushing a jogger or chasing boys on bikes). It has been a wet few weeks here in Northern California, and I am hoping that this outdoor running and training is toughening up my running confidence. Pretty soon I will not be running in sunny California… but the wild and wacky always changing weather of the Midwest.
This Week’s Fitness Plan (What I plan to do):
Monday: Fab5 Bootcamp + 3 easy miles
Tuesday: 5 tempo (treadmill) miles
Wednesday: 3-5 easy miles + strength
Thursday:Easy run w/ friend + bootcamp
Friday: 2-3 easy miles + strength
Saturday: 10 miles chasing the boys on bikes
I am really really really trying to get a grasp on my portion control and proper nutrition. I have created a game plan for the week. I know my portion sizes. I have everything set up to clean, cut, prepare and organize. Now… I just need to go grocery shopping! Oh the joys of having children and attempting to shop with a list. Fun times!
I am hopefully optimistic to stick to the nutrition plan. My fitness plan is still iffy. I really want to make sure I get in my 5 mile tempo run and my long run, the other activities I am flexible with.
Do you have a blog? Janice and I would love for you to link up and share with us your game plan for the week. Do you need the accountability and motivation for the week? Come join the #MotivateME movement this week.
