Keeping Tabs on My Goals for the Week

November 3, 2010

Gotta tell you that the luxury of a pedicure is pretty motivating these days!  So far, I’ve managed to:

  • stay out of my kids’ Halloween candy
  • journal my food 2 days this week (goal for the week = 4 days)
  • fit in a run and core workout (goal for the week = 3 workouts)

Journaling has helped me realize that my veggie intake has slipped a little, so that’s helpful info.  Since I don’t like that many vegetables raw, I sometimes find it tough to fit in veggies when I’m time-crunched, as they require time to prepare.  Also, when I’m stressed, some veggies (especially broccoli and cauliflower) are totally unappealing and kind of make me gag.  Don’t know why that is – it just is.

I’ll definitely be running Friday, but will also be hitting a bootcamp class Saturday morning.

Ran tonight, and my left IT band was bothering me again.  Darn – thought I’d kicked that injury, especially since I haven’t been running very much at all, so the ITB has had lots of rest.  Clearly I need to get back to the exercises my physiotherapist prescribed, which I’ve been neglecting as of late.  I can only have so many priorities, ya know?  Even if it only takes a few minutes a day, sometimes those minutes add up.

Well, off to bed!  I’m up way too late and have an early morning.  Finding it hard to get out of bed these days – a combo of the darkness and my school-related fatigue.  Glad I got my workout in tonight though!

Tips for getting out of bed in the late fall/winter?  Sun doesn’t rise around here until almost 8am, and sets around 5:30pm these days.

    Food journaling is my lifeline. I haven’t been good with the Halloween candy. Great job staying away from it!

    Great work on your goals so far!!

    Oh I wish I had tips for you…I turned off the alarm this morning. Rainy and cold and I wasn’t feeling it. Hope you can find the motivation you need!

    You go, girl! I would have to say the biggest thing for me is having a breakfast to wake up and be excited about.

    The darkness is starting to get to me, too. My day starts at 5am, so it feels weird to spend literally hours in darkness before the rest of the world wakes up. ;) Coffee is a must!!

      I don’t like coffee, but am seriously considering starting drinking it just to get going in the a.m.!
