I have to get back in the habit of setting up my week on Sundays, both in my head and my house. It helps so much to check the calendar, plan a few meals and snacks, and get things ready.
I'm also in between training plans...not races, though. I have a half marathon training plan that was much too lofty post-surgery and with foot issues and a catch-up plan that I'm actually ahead of. It would help immensely, if I'd write out my plan, a combo of the two I currently have. Maybe I'll get that done today, if all else goes well.
And I know that planning my meals and snacks really does help me stay on track. We're at the last weigh-in of the Lose a (Half) Marathon contest with Run with Jess...and I didn't come near my goal. I lost 4 pounds total, fluctuating back and forth with a couple of pounds constantly. I know I have to add something to my exercise routine in order to make any progress. It's finding the time that is the problem.
So, here's this week in a nutshell:
Monday--run 2.5 miles
snack: oops...forgot to pack one...maybe a protein bar?
after school: gymnastics/Body Combat (here's to hoping my son will actually go to childcare)
dinner: baked potatoes with chili
Tuesday--picture day at school
snack: PB2 and an apple
after school: Choice Tour at school
dinner: crockpot southwest chicken and dumplings
Wednesday--run 3 miles
snack: grapes and almonds
after school: faculty meeting/cross country practice
dinner: eat at church before Hang Time
Thursday--run 2 miles
snack: ham rollups
after school: cross country practice
dinner: Date Night!
snack: trail mix
after school: fun time with the kids :)
dinner: bbq hotdogs
Saturday--Shortgrass Scamper Quarter Marathon! and small group
Sunday--church...and my brother will be home from Kenya!
Ok, so you really didn't need all that, but I sure did :)
