The Week in Fitness & Weekly Goals

Before I start this morning’s post I want to say that my thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathies are with everyone affected by Friday’s tragedy. What happened that day was unimaginable and will never be forgotten. Thank you so much to our brave teachers who went to school today with heavy hearts. You all have one of the most important jobs in the world, and we are forever grateful for what you do.

Before I get to last week's goals, let’s recap  the week in fitness, shall we?

Monday – 30 minute HIIT cycling
Tuesday – Ran 4 miles at an 8:45 pace
Wednesday – Define
Thursday – 30 minute cycling workout
Friday – Define, walked 3 miles
Saturday – Define, 30 minute HIIT cycling
Sunday – Rest day

Did much better on the weight training front this week. Now that I have a monthly membership to Define I’ve gotta get my money’s worth!

So how did I do on those goals, eh?

1.       Go to Define 3-4 times
2.       Drink 8 glasses of water a day (plus extra during workouts)
3.       At least 30 minutes of cardio on 5 different days
4.       Grocery shop on Sunday to make my week easier
5.       2 HIIT workouts

I definitely accomplished all of the fitness related goals (1, 3 and 5). I did 5 cardio workouts, including 2 HIIT workouts, and went to Define thrice.

In terms of number 2, I did a good job of getting my water in Monday through Friday. However, I could have done better on Saturday and Sunday. It's harder on the weekends when I'm out and about and don't have easy access to the water cooler at work. Really don't think I would fare well in the desert...

Lastly, I did not go to the grocery store yesterday, but I did go this morning before work. I will consider this amazing feat a success and check goal number 4 off my list. As long as the grocery trip gets done before the work week starts, it's all good in the hood. Probably should have gone yesterday though since a bag of candied pecans became last night's dinner. Oops.

I won't be posting any goals for this week because I'm traveling Thursday to Sunday. However, I will try to exercise as much as possible and soak up every blissful minute of my adult Christmas break. Thank you, Santa for Paid Time Off!

On an unrelated note, did anyone watch the Dexter and/or Homeland finales last night?!?!? Talk about drama. I cannot get the final scene of Dexter out of my head. So many frustrations and unanswered questions! Ugh Showtime, I love you and hate you at the same time.

What are your favorite TV shows? What's your favorite holiday treat? Candied pecans are definitely at the top of my list!
