oh hey, friday | let's talk more about me working out

Oh, BRB.
I FORGOT it was Friday.

While I type my post though... you can go ahead and get linked up!

OK = I'm sure you guys are sick of hearing about this fitness challenge... but I'm telling you all to keep ME accountable. ha.

So here is what I have been up to for this first week...

1 | pictures
You might not think that taking pictures is much of a workout, but you are wrong.
I swear I am sweating after doing it.
But it is definitely worth it, even after 400 photos.
Just look how cute....

2 | in actual workout news
We have a big circular drive way that is basically a track.
Six laps = 1 mile.
Since all of our workout equipment is packed up waiting to move into a new workout room (once our current office is moved out) using it isn't an option.
So I run.
AND I have never liked to run.
So far I have run one mile a day... which i know sounds pretty pathetic.
I am hopeful that by Monday (the start of week 2) I will be running two miles.
And perhaps by week 6 I can run 6 miles!
I will just have to figure out a different way to track my laps because surely after 10 I will lose track.

3 | food
You guys... I have been so diligent.
I haven't eaten a carb all week long.
And I finished off my bag of chocolate chips the night before the challenge.
Speaking of chocolate chips... I used to put them in the freezer, thinking that if they were frozen I wouldn't touch them.
That mind trick did nothing.
I would still hammer them.
BUT, no more chocolate chips. Or kettlecorn.
And guess what?
I'm juuuuust fine.
And I feel great actually.

Although, making two dinners every night is kind of obnoxious.

4 | injury
I would really like to be doing some other sort of weight training.
But that hasn't been in the cards for me.
It hurts so bad.
It started on Saturday, and was just kind of obnoxious.
By that night it was pain throughout the whole arm.
I googled it and legitimately thought I was going to have a heart attack.
Yea, I'm one of those people.
After I realized I was going to live, I realized it is more localized in my shoulder and collar bone.
If I can ever find a spare minute I need to go see someone.
I'm just not sure who to go to.
A doctor? Chiropractor? Masseuse?
I really don't know.
And honestly I'm just hoping it feels better magically.

5 | goals
My goals for the coming weeks are as follows:
- run more laps
- do more weight training
- meal prep ahead of time
- get abs

There you have it!

Ok, friends.
Have a super weekend.

  1. Your goals sound awesome-- and it's SO cool to have a driveway you can run!! You're going to rock this fitness challenge. And your boys are THE cutest. Not that you didn't know that already. ha! Happy Friday!!

  2. So nice to "meet" you! Your boys are so handsome!

  3. To keep track of your laps try using a lap counter (https://www.amazon.com/Richards-Company-Counter-Finger-SPR24100/dp/B0008GOGI8/ref=sr_1_2?s=team-sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1490640477&sr=1-2) - super easy to hold in your hand. Or if you know your approximate mile pace, you can just use your fitbit or phone to set a timer, and figure it out that way. A lot of times when you are building up endurance it is more helpful to track based on time anyways!
