This week has been a whirlwind with home and work. The family was still working to clear the germs and we had a wedding to attend on Sunday. The wedding was beautiful and the dessert table was impeccable. It was hard. and I was unsuccessful, at limiting yourself with the vast array of goodies. I have a hard time passing up homemade baklava, especially when it says grandma’s.
I was out of town for work a few days this week, which allowed me to get some much needed rest. Sorry, mom and dad. They were watching the kids since my husband works far away and we didn’t want to disrupt their sleep schedule too much. However, my kids don’t sleep and my parents learned that first hand. I’m sure they were excited to have a quiet house last night and get some sleep without having a child staring at them creepily in the middle of the night.
Now, down to the nitty gritty with the workouts.
Saturday: Treadmill run. It was surprisingly nice for Northeast Ohio, but I’m still not prepared enough to get outside below certain temperatures. My dedication hasn’t come back completely.
Sunday: Unintentional rest day. Went grocery shopping, then church and then realized I had the wrong time for the wedding. So, it was quite a day.
Monday: Treadmill run
Tuesday: Weight day. I brought back the weight day and it felt pretty good!
Wednesday: Hit the road for work and then attended a training all day. I could have worked out in the evening at the hotel, but I decided to just relax. The training was on Ohio Healthy Programs which is working with child care providers to change they way they feed children. Very interesting information and could make a big impact on how children eat in the future. Promotes healthy eating and healthy body image.
Thursday: Treadmill run
Friday: Weight day
Overall, I am proud of myself for getting 5 workouts in this week. That is an improvement. I did indulge a few times this week with the wedding and then with traveling. I’m excited to start trying some of the information I learned in my training with my own picky eater. Although I want her to eat and not go to bed hungry, I want her to eat healthier. I want my entire family to eat healthier. I may actually have to learn to cook something that they will eat. #I’mahorriblecook Any tips would be helpful!
My goal for this upcoming week is to continue to get at least 5 workouts in with 3 running days and 2 weight training days. Incorporate healthier lunches
into my work week. It is also the holiday season, so there are lots of treats coming into work.
I am going to try to limit myself as much as possible. As I was reminded in my training, we should not reward ourselves with food. There are so many other options out there! Until next time, be confident, be fit, be you!
