Wow! Can you believe we’re starting Week 12 of the 12-Week Sprint to the Finish? We’re here! The finish line is before us.
It’s your last week to blow it out. So, what are you going to do?
I feel like I did okay with my goals this week. I still did not get in my strength-training, but I’m also still trying to give myself a little grace as we adjust to our school schedule again.
I’ve just about decided that, even though I may not see the same results, I may kind of do my own thing rather than follow The New Rules of Lifting for Women.
The workouts are a little monotonous and they aren’t, for most part, things that I especially enjoy. I’m wondering if I’d be more likely to stick with it if I did strength workouts that I enjoy.
Or maybe I just need to quit whining and stick with the book. I can be so indecisive.
I’m a little nervous about the scale this week. I feel like I’ve done okay with my food choices, but I haven’t logged this week. I know, I know. Go ahead and fuss at me. I just wanted to give intuitive eating another shot.
My favorite lunch this week was a tuna-stuffed tomato with jicama and red pepper for dipping in hummus and some of the best strawberries I’ve had in awhile, along with some grapes.
I did try to pay close attention, mentally, to my calories and, with a couple of exceptions – one more breadstick at Fazzoli’s, one more taco Friday night (homemade, though, so not as bad as fast food) – I feel like I’ve done okay. We’ll see.
I didn’t get my long run in this week either. Church activities have started back on Sunday evenings, which makes it hard to find time for my long run, not to mention the fact that it’s still close to 100 degrees after sundown around here these days.
I’m trying not to stress too much and hoping that I can build back up pretty quickly once the weather cools off.
My goals this week: follow my running training plan, figure out what to do about my long run, make good, sensible food choices as I continue to work on transitioning to eating intuitively.
What are your goals for this last week of the sprint?
Do or do not. There is no try.
