10/19/12 Review and next weeks goals

Friday, October 19, 2012

This week in review: I ran Monday, Wednesday, but I am switching Friday for Saturday so I can walk my daughter out on the football field for senior night. I did yoga, lunges, and squats on Tuesday, but that was it. No cross training the rest of the week because of volleyball games. I'm still holding steady at 145, I did not loose a pound. All in all I don't think it was but a mediocre week. Now that volleyball is over I want to kick it into high gear on the cross training.

Goals for next week: Run 3-4 miles Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and do my 5k race on Saturday. Yoga in the morning Monday through Friday. Cross train on Monday and Wednesday with elliptical, squats, and lunges. Rest on Friday sense it is the day before the race. Lose 1 pound. Try 1 new recipe from my vegetarian cookbook I am going to buy Saturday. And I think that sums it up. Stiff schedule but I would like to reach my goal weight by Christmas.

Saturday I am going to the bookstore for a vegetarian cookbook. I am still eating meat, I just want to reduce the meat I eat and look for something different. I also might look for another crockpot recipe book. I have one now I rely on a lot. I love my crockpot. I have been looking into gym memberships all week to see if I can afford one for me and the kids. It will give us something to do through the winter. Maybe that is a plan, A summer workout and a winter workout. That might be a good way to switch things up.

Any advice on my first 5k? Eat breakfast not eat breakfast? Carbs, proteins or both for breakfast? I will keep you up to date with my results on the race from the 27th. Any advice for a first time 5k'er is welcomed.

    I think it was a good week. Great plan for next week.
What do you usually eat before you run? Stick with what works for you.
