Saturday Morning Strength

This morning was a tough gym workout. Here is a bit of it. I can’t believe I’m about to type this, but I’m actually starting to enjoy going to the gym. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Wednesday Run

I so did not want to hit the track this morning. After hitting snooze 3 times and deciding not to go, I rolled over 5 minutes later and got my butt out of bed….it was worth it!

Happy hump day!

Monday morning run

It was a brisk 45 degrees in New York this morning. Not my favorite running temperature, but it did help me run a bit faster this morning, and hit some negative splits in the process. Have a great day!

Friday Strength

โ€‹โ€‹Yesterday was a much needed rest day.  I started using the app map my fitness to log my daily food intake. I’ve had this app forever and am not sure why I’ve never used this tool. It really is incredible and will help me to keep myself accountable. Here is yesterday’s intake.  Surprisingly I was not hungry at any point thought the day. 

I like that you can scan food labels into the app, and bam the nutrition facts are imputed for you.  You just have to adjust your serving size for each food item. This really is a great app….give it a shot!

Today I went to the gym. I hate the gym! But I am committed to get 3 days of strength training in per week. I’m turning over a new leaf!  I started with a mile walk on the treadmill. Then I worked on legs; so I hit all the leg machines that I could find.  I guess I should start logging which machines I use, and how many reps….that would be helpful!  I’ll make sure to do that tomorrow. 

Today is day 5 of no coffee!! I’m surviving!

Until next time…

I’m still here!

I know it’s been forever, but I’m going to slowly get back to updating my site. 

For the month of May I’m challenging myself to totally give up coffee. I’m on day 3 and it’s been a struggle!  I’ve been trying out tea (unsweetened) and it’s been pretty gross. I think today I am going to breakdown and add honey because I’m simply not going to make it drinking it with zero sweetener. Any other suggestions on good teas, or ways to make tea taste better without adding sugar please let me know!

Another goal for this month is to be active 6 days a week. This is going to be tough but I’m going to make it happen. My usual is 3-4 days of activity so this is pushing it. I’ve incorporated strength training and yoga back into my things to do, so hopefully these additions will make this goal easier. 

Last goal for this month is just to eat better. No processed food, no fast food, and none of my beloved twizzlers and rochers. It is going to be a struggle, but I am focused and I am going to achieve these goals!

Until tomorrow โœŒ๐Ÿพ.
