This was just about the longest week EVER! I feel like I went through Tuesday twice and Friday took about 8 days to arrive. I am happy and grateful that it’s finally Friday… and Fitness Friday! Despite it being a crazy long week, this week’s workouts went well. None of my workouts were over the top, but I was happy to have worked out 4 of the 5 work days.
Monday – Body Revolution workout 1. It was so fun going back to a workout 1. I forgot how much I loved this dvd and was encouraged to see how easy it was for me.
Tuesday – off. The day got away from me. Neal and I “slept in” Tuesday morning, missing our AM workout and Tuesday night was cray cray. Flip flopped my off day from Friday to Tuesday this week.
Wednesday – 2 mile run in my merrell barefoot shoes on the treadmill. Although I wore these shoes all over Europe, this was my first time running in them. I liked it!
Thursday – 25 minute outdoor run. It was SO beautiful outside yesterday morning! I loved the crisp air and running around the neighborhood for a bit.
Friday – 2 mile run
If you follow me on instagram (coffeecakeandcardio) you would have seen that I had a number of post work events this week… aka beer time. Although I’m ending the week feeling good, I want to make sure I take advantage of the weekend ahead of me.
You see, it’s all about balance. I may not have made the best decisions at happy hour this week, aka a huge plate of nachos Thursday night, but healthy breakfasts, moderate lunches, and consistent workouts helped to create a good balance even with a week of events.
This week’s eats have looked a little like this…
Breakfast – Smoothies! I have been enjoying trying out all of the new protein powders I bought last weekend.
Lunch – Progresso soups, leftover eggplant, and Subway
Dinner – Turkey burgers, eggplant, and dinners out with friends.
All in all, a great week. I am eager to take it up a notch though, so we’ll see what I can shake up next week.
