Weekly Goals Time

Is there any better way to start the week than by having Monday off? I THINK NOT. 

Don't mind me, I'm just over here binge-watching House of Cards (ohmygodohmygodohmygod) and coveting every single dress in Claire Underwood's wardrobe. I 'spose I can take a short break in the name of the Weekly Goals Linkup :)

Fitnasty for Life

First, checking in with last week's goals:

1) No unaccounted for snacks. Check! Although, I had to take drastic measures to keep myself from polishing off the Nutella:

For the record, I resisted. So far.

2) Print out training plan and complete four runs. Check-- not only did I do four runs, I did all five! I even found a slush-less path, which makes me far more excited than it should. But I knocked out 4 miles in 39 minutes on Saturday which is really speedy for me!

Valentine's Day. That candy actually remained untouched.
3) Make a dentist appointment. Uh. I got recommendations from friends to sort through. Making one this week. Promise.

4) Get in 11,000 steps every day. My methods were a little strange (I did laps at the bar from 11:47pm-midnight on Saturday because I was 500 steps short), but I got in 11K steps every day this week. #nailedit

Onward. Here's this week's game plan:

1) Get in 2 Jillian dates. When running picked up, I threw Jillian on the back burner (sorry, Jilly). But these arms aren't gonna tone themselves. Ultimately, I know working on strength will help me with running, so here's to doing a better job of integrating the two. BTW, have you entered my Ripped in 30 Giveaway yet?

2) 11K a day. Let's see if I can make this happen two weeks in a row. Even if it means going for an hour-long walk at 11pm on Sunday night to hit the goal (...again). 

3) Grocery shop and meal plan. I made this beaut (above) last week and it's DELISH. I kinda failed at meal-planning aside from this, though. Which maybe meant that I ate Pockets three times last week (unapologetically). Still, I can do better. PS - Blog post about my grocery shopping habits forthcoming, as suggested by Amy!

Alright friends, your turn!


  1. I LURVE chili and any variation of it. That looks DELISH.

    You are killing it! Good for you, twinsie!

  2. LOL at the nutella comments. great job :)

  3. LOL...Ok I think I'm the only one that doesn't love Nutella. This may be a blessing in disguse. Ha! Great job with your steps girl.

  4. I cannot have Nutella in the house because I have NO control when it's around. Good job staying strong!

  5. Sounds like a pretty good week to me!

  6. I can't believe you let that Valentine's Day candy go untouched. I would have chowed down on that in 2 seconds flat.
