You’re not going to believe this…but…I MET MY RUNNING GOAL!

These were my Week 4 Workout Goals:

  • take 1 dance class
  • complete 1 Bosu workout
  • take 1 Pilates class
  • run 5 miles
  • walk 10,000 steps per day

and I pretty much rock.

I also did pretty good with my Week 4 Food Goals:

  • eat 2 types of fruit or veggies a day

I was really committed this week. I even got up early while on vacation to run my last 1.5 miles. Rock on!

How do you celebrate when you meet your workout goals?

Here are my week 4 workout goals…wish me luck!

  • complete 1 Bosu workout
  • take 1 Pilates class
  • run 5 miles
  • walk 10,000 steps per day

Week 4 Food Goals:

I’m rewarding myself this weekend with a trip to the lake! Pontoon boat, here I come!

How do you make sure you eat your fruits and veggies?

What is it with me and running? I just can’t seem to make myself do it…mostly because I can’t make myself get out of bed early enough to do it.

These were my Week 3 Workout Goals:

  • take 1 dance class
  • complete 1 Bosu workout
  • take 1 Pilates class
  • run 4 miles
  • walk 10,000 steps per day
  • work in the yard

I took a fun dance class. I had an amazing bosu workout and pilates class. I walked a lot. I may have missed 10,000 a couple of days, but I was close or even exceeded it other days. But running? 2 miles. That’s it.

Did I do better with food?

These were my Week 3 Food Goals:

  • eat 2 types of fruit or veggies a day

I’m pretty sure I hit this goal…that is, if you count my daily hummus intake. 🙂

What healthy snacks do you enjoy?

Week 3 is looking a lot like Week 1 with a little yard work added in.

Week 3 Workout Goals:

  • take 1 dance class
  • complete 1 Bosu workout
  • take 1 Pilates class
  • run 4 miles
  • walk 10,000 steps per day
  • work in the yard

Week 3 Food Goals:

  • eat 2 types of fruit or veggies a day

Week 3 is shaping up to be a good week…except that pesky 4-miles worth of running. 🙂

How are you doing on your workout goals this week?

So how did I do in week 2?

Okay. I did okay.

Here were my goals:

  • complete 1 Bosu workout – check
  • take 1 Pilates class – check
  • run 4 miles – 1/2 check
  • walk 10,000 steps per day – 1/2 check
  • eat 2 types of fruit or veggies a day – maybe a 1/2 check

Running: I only ran 2 miles – not 4. I started off the week right with an early morning Tuesday run. Running went downhill from there. I have a really hard time getting out of bed in the mornings (understatement of the year), so getting motivated to get up and run…extremely difficult!

Walking: I hit 10,000 most days. In order to boost my steps, I walked the 2 miles home from the train in the afternoons. Definitely an easy walk that is worth it on most days.

Eating: I didn’t do so hot on the fruits and veggies, so this goal is staying on my list for week 3!

Are you a morning runner? If so, what motivates you to get up in the morning and run?
