Happy Monday everyone!! I am absolutely WIPED from my weekend, even though I didn't find time to make it to the gym. The girls had a hockey practice and two hockey games, plus Amber had gymnastics and I took everyone swimming on Saturday afternoon. I feel like our weekends are over-run with kid activities. How was your weekend?
This week I really struggled with my motivation. I've felt tired and lethargic, and I've had a bad case of the “I don't wannas”. Part of it is the weather, who on earth wants to run outside in the cold, or the slush or whatever crappy weather?!? The other part of it is nutrition and sleep.
As I said in my post on Friday, my morning routine of a black coffee and Fruit Loops isn't doing me any favours. My lunches & dinners have quite honestly not been much better. I really need to get organised and ensure that I have the food that I need for the week purchased and prepped on Sunday and to motivate myself perhaps li should ink up on Sunday nights with Mommy Run Fast's Meal Plan linky? I'll set that as my goal for next week.
The training recap:
: 6k run at lunch: went for the fitness assessment that I won
: 6k run at lunch (watched the Canada/US Olympic hockey game
long run day, 10-15k?
Do the Valentine’s Day Kettlebell HIIT workout?: lunch spinning with super hot Craig (instructor)
Not a stellar week, though the fact that I may have found the coach/personal trainer that I've been looking for is a bonus!
Total for this week: 12k
16 week total: 299k
This week I'm really not sure what to plan. Today I have my free workout with Personal Trainer Mike, and on Sunday I'm “running” the Chilly Half Marathon. I love spinning, so I'll try and make it to class on Thursday, and will aim to do a short run on Tuesday.
I'm kind of tired of whining about not being able to find my workout mojo, so I hope things (pricing) works out with the personal trainer – I really want to get back to kicking some workout butt and eating like a champion!
Have a great week everyone!
Question: Do you have a case of the winter blahs too?
