Now for something new! I thought it would be nice to have a Friday recap series where I discuss the progress I’ve made on my short term goals. I will also be sharing my fitness/health plan for the upcoming week.
The ladies over at Fit.Fun.Femme call this “Target Practice.” If you aren’t following these ladies, you should cruise on over to their blog. Natalie is a newly engaged marathon runner, and Sara is a Louis Vuitton lovin’ Yoga instructor.
50 Push Ups - My personal trainer, you remember Craig from the Park Workout Routine, read my post on Monday and decided to help me with this goal. Oh yay… I’m sure you can sense my enthusiasm. During my Tuesday workout, he had me do many sets of regular push ups (55 total). Then he followed those push ups with crazy TRX one legged push ups. Those were fun. Loved the sore arms this week. (Craig, you know you are the best!)
Half Marathon - I ran 3 fast miles on Wednesday with my friend, Ben. He is one of those annoyingly fast runners I was talking about on Monday. He loves to run backwards while I am huffing and puffing with a forward run. But it paid off! Check out this speed racer!
I ate about half of it! Serving sizes are so big these days.
I also tried Holly’s Cucumber Dill Greek Yogurt Salad as a afternoon snack during work this week. So delicious!
Have you tried frozen grapes yet?! If you haven’t, then you are missing out. They are like little frozen drops of sunshine! Okay, so frozen sunshine is an oxymoron. (I should know better since I work for an Aurospace organization). But THEY ARE SO GOOD and have replaced my chocolate squares after dinner.
Next week I will be leaving for a short girl’s trip to Vegas about mid-week. I know it will be tough to eat clean and exercise while in Vegas, but here’s hoping! I’m contemplating on whether I should bring a blender. I’m also kicking off my half-marathon training next week and have a long run scheduled for Sunday, the day after I get back from Vegas. Haha… I’ll let you know how that goes!
Anyways… question of the day!
How do you maintain a clean diet while on vacation?
