7 of 28: A Week of Workouts

October 10, 2011

My workout today was, in a word, weak.  We ended up staying at my parents’ house longer than I had thought, so the time I anticipated I would have later in the day disappeared on me.  After rushing home from my parents’, getting our son to hockey, grocery shopping, prepping supper for tomorrow night (a slow cooker cabbage roll casserole – recipe I got from my mom) and part of supper for later this week (ground beef with taco seasoning for Walking Tacos), I helped my daughter fall asleep (she was scared about “vampires” and had quite of bit of trouble settling down) and then got into my workout gear.  My workout lasted 10 minutes and was a very easy stationary bike ride.

I’m now just about to head to bed but wanted to celebrate the fact that I have worked out 7 days in a row!  By making my workouts mandatory, I’ve made it easier mentally to fit activity into my day.  Granted, some of my workouts have been very easy, but some movement is definitely better than none, and getting back into the habit of working out and doing SOMETHING is better than insisting that every workout is a hard one.

This week, I also want to focus on my eating habits.  So, I am committing to 21 days of healthier eating.  For the next 7 days, I will focus on fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean meats.  I will limit my red meat intake to 2 days, make sure I get seafood at least once this week, and make at least one meal vegetarian.  I am also swearing off treats for the next week, because my sugar consumption has gotten out of control, what with Thanksgiving and all.

Expect daily updates with how I’m doing with my workouts and eating.

    Keep up the good work! We all have off weeks, especially during holidays, but understanding that the workout needs to happen no matter what is what separates you from the heard. I just started my own blog to inform and educate people that no matter how busy their schedule may be, there is always time for a workout and never an excuse, your a perfect example, good job :)!

    Lady, you have been working so hard at fitting fitness in for the last 7 days. Considering this leaves no room for you to have an actual rest day, I think 10 minutes on the bike is just fine.

    Hey – your 7 days is better than my 0 days. Any spare moment I get, I don’t want to work out. I want to relax. This semester is BRUTAL.

    I am intrigued by this cabbage roll casserole :-) I love cabbage rolls … and I love them even more if I can get all the flavour with half the work!

      I’ll try and post the recipe soon. It was quite delish! And I hear you about school. This year is pretty good for me, but last year was horrible. You know when you cut back on showering because you’d rather use those few minutes for more sleep that it’s bad.
