Working it Out!

Leave a comment

Thanksgiving week is my favorite week of the year because Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday!  I love Thanksgiving, the food, the smell, the food, the binge, the treats, the seconds, the food, etc.  What I don’t like is – absolutely nothing!  I love going to the store and getting my items.  I love the crowded parking lots, the way families come together to celebrate and gather over the feast.  With all the food I will be eating I must stay on track to lose my half a stone to a stone weight!  I want to be in perfect health for my Princess Half Marathon and I am going to be! I am going to PR!  I am going to excel and I am going to ring in 2015 happy and healthy and 2015 will return it back to me with everything I asked for!

So this week we will continue to work it out!

Physical goals for the week – exercise Monday through Thursday!

Personal goals for the week – not to feel guilty about eating on Thursday (and Thursday night and Friday morning and Friday evening and maybe Saturday)!

 

 

Set a goal, complete the goal!

When I set a goal I aim and try to reach it but sometimes I get hit with curve balls that make me lose complete sight of my vision.

I set a goal to PR on my next half marathon race which is the Disney Princess Half on February 2015. I want to beat my previous time of 2 hours and 3 minutes and come in at a time of 1 hour, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. That time is my true goal (but if I come in at 2:02:59, I am fine with that!). But of course I have been procrastinating and just being ugh about getting into shape.

So I am putting it out there – starting Monday, November 10 we are going to be on a serious mission to drop 3/4 of stone (everything sounds better in a British accent)!

I will have three cheat days between now and the end of the year – the day of Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, and the day after the day after Thanksgiving. Christmas dinner – is just Thanksgiving the remix so I don’t need that as a cheat day. And I don’t drink (but I do get seriously drunk on Sparkling Apple Cider) so New Year’s Eve not a big drinking holiday for me.

Then I seriously start training on December 1 for this half. I just need to set a goal and complete a goal so I can feel like I achieved something in 2014.

Starting your own business is a total mind phuck.

More on that in the next post.

Day 7

Leave a comment

It has been a week and I am keeping my end of the bargain (although I am the only one who is in on this deal) of this 90 day challenge!

A review of the first week:

Meat – didn’t eat it.

Exercise – I did it!

Yoga – zip

YMCA – zip

Overall grade – C+/B-

This week I am focusing on taking 2 spin classes at the Y and I even roped a friend to join me.  Tomorrow I scheduled myself to do yoga at 9:30 a.m. Last, I planned out my meals for the week so I am one step ahead of the game.

I wanted to tell you I am doing a smoothie challenge for the month of April. Check it out here. I’ll let you know what I think at the end of the week.

Also, this morning I ran 2 miles at 10:15 a mile. Go ME!! I am getting there.

Have a great day!!

Goals

Everything Sounds Better With A British Accent

One of my physical goals (part of my 3P plan) is to get in the best shape for 2015 half-marathons and marathons. In order to accomplish the goal, I have a few pounds to lose.

We say pounds, the Brits say stones. One stone is equivalent to 14 pounds. It sounds so depressing when I need to lose 7 pounds but it has a nice ring to it when I only need to lose half a stone.

Insanity week 5 day 2 – DONE!

I’m getting there.
