Another busy week and some goals for the week

Sunday, August 17, 2014

This week is my last full week off before I go back to school. I'm kinda sad because it's my last week, but I'm also excited because it's my last year of school before I graduate.

It's going to be another busy week between appointments and my daughters band practice and work. My calendar is booked pretty solid this week. Today I'm trying to get stuff done around here so it won't be as bad during the week. On a good note, we found a new mattress for my daughter and it will be delivered tomorrow.

My son is doing better each day. He still is limping around a little, but his therapy is helping with that.

I will admit that I have not been so good with eating this weekend. We went out for our anniversary and I had carrot cake (well worth every calorie!!) and a glass of wine and we had DQ last night (another weakness).

I ran last night and I found that I was going slower than I have all week. I'm not sure if it's because I usually work out in the morning, but it might be the reason. I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I'm hoping I will have a better run today.

Here are my goals for the week:

1. Lose at least 0.5 lbs (I'm convinced my eating this week will not help me lose any more!)

2. Run at least 8 miles total this week

3. Eat better foods (I have no junk food in the house)

4. Get all my stuff organized to go back to school

What are some of your goals? I'm finding that if I list them it really does help me be more conscious of things.

I hope you are having a great day. emoticon

    A carrot is a vegetable, it's all good.

    That is truly what I want to tell you. But you and I know we can justify things all day long and it won't make us thin. Do you need to justify your anniversary dinner? NO WAY! It's your special day and you've been busting your hump trying to run those 8 miles a week. A piece of carrot cake and some ice cream isn't going to derail everything you've been doing because you have already made a habit of weight loss. Your a kicking butt, taking names kinda mom who's taxiing her kids around, taking care of business and going to college. With that kind of determination there is no way you can fail.

    I'm so glad to see that you indulged yourself at your anniversary dinner! I hope that you shared that with your children, too. It's so important for kids to see their parents taking care of their marriage like that. - and yumm0 to carrot cake.
    Good luck with your goals this week emoticon

    I don't run, but find my walks in the evening usually are slower paced and my body and mind are tired from the day. The morning exercise is great though even if I'm half asleep lol.

    I hope you enjoy your last week before school!

    Great goals! I find that I run better in mornings. When afternoon or early evening rolls around, my legs get sluggish, even though my motivation is high.
    My goals for this week:
    1. Run 5K
    2. Bike 10 miles
    3. Strength training 5 days
    4. Stay within calorie range.
    Have a great week ahead!
