Jen's Journey on FB....

Friday, December 06, 2013

I am finding that it is better for me to focus on maintaining just one fitness page these days and so I am posting mostly on my FB page. I am not leaving spark but for now, til the new year, you can follow me there if you would like, I am Jen's Journey on FB.

All the BEST!! Keep pressing on and much love to my amazing Spark family!!! :)

    You should think about challenging yourself more... (I am SO kidding, lol). 30 miles in 83 minutes sounds incredible!!! And mixing in all of those intervals too, such a great routine. So glad you're back here and kicking butt. :-)

An update on my progress and new goals for this next week...

Friday, November 15, 2013

I am doing well, working hard and trying my best to stay on track. Logging on my blog and spark has been another story. I have been posting on my FB page and on dailymile but have not met my goal of posting to my private blog and spark people for accountability.

This past week I completed my first run in months and my knee did well. It was hurting a big the past few days but overall, it is ok. I also managed to get in a good, strong 83.4 km's on my spin bike at home. I am trying to focus on getting back to riding as it helps my knee a great deal.

Here are my goals for this next week.

Fitness -

Friday - 30 mins on the bike - hill intervals with recovery 15 min ride - DONE!! 61 mins
Saturday - 60 mins on the bike - steady ride
Sunday - Walk on the trails for at least an hour, maybe a few running intervals if my knee allows
Monday - 30 mins on the bike - mixed intervals
Tuesday - Rest, stretch....
Wednesday - Walk for 45 mins to an hour
Thursday - Walk for 45 min to an hour
Friday - Bike 30 mins hill intervals with recovery 15 mins

Slowly but surely, I am making my way back!!!! I feel encouraged, excited and ready to do all I can to reach my goals.

Have a blessed weekend - stay on track :) Weekends are always hard, but go in with the right mindset and you can do it!

All the best :)

So far so good. Results 11/7....

Friday, November 08, 2013

Yesterday I did well. I was unable to get my walk in due to the weather but I will make up for it today.

Food wise, I did great. Water was on track too. I also blended an awesome drink which I intend to make again today. It was simply protein powder, pineapple, cucumber, ginger, water, a small amount of orange juice and kale. It was really good!!!!!

I also made a great lemon chicken with roasted veggies which was easy and so fantastic!

I know these posts are not exactally the most exciting but for me, it is about staying accountable to get back on track. So even if it is a short report of my day, it will help me!!!

Off to make today a success!

Time for new goals!! Ready to finally MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!

Thursday, November 07, 2013

We are back from Paris and it is time for me to get back on track with my program. This is going to be a short and sweet post for today. My focus right now, reaching my goals!!

I will get straight to it :)

Goals for November 7th - November 11th

1. Juice daily
2. Focus on lean proteins and veggies. Same plan that has worked SO many times for me.
3. Walk for 30 to 45 mins daily. Working up to running again soon! YEAH!!
4. PT work and stretching
5. LOG RESULTS!! As of late I have a habit of doing well and then not logging my results for accountability.

That is all for today :) Time to make it HAPPEN!! Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!
