Weekly WrapUp!

22 Feb

I’ve made the executive decision to make Saturday the day I wrap up my week…which, makes sense right? So that’s why this is going up on Sunday morning 😉

It’s been a super cold week here, but at least the snow has stopped – not that *I* don’t like the snow (cause I love it!!) but I know it’s a hassle for people! And, for the record, I’d rather have cold and snow than bitter cold and no snow!!

Anyway – after making my declaration earlier this week that I needed to, for lack of a better turn of phrase, poop or get off the pot, I made a very concerted effort to get out to the gym/treadmill and to Bikram. And to eat better. AND to drink less wine.

And now for the update on that other stuff!

Well, I made it to the treadmill on Tuesday and Saturday….tendonitis was acting up, even with taping so trying to not aggravate things too much.
Made it to Bikram Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday — and, seriously I already feel tons better!

Had a second job interview this week too, and so far I’m still in the running — hopefully will hear more early in the week. There’s one more step before they’ll offer me the job!

And…starting Monday I’ll be doing a 10-day Cleanse – not your typical cleanse where you drink some nasty liquid for an interminable amount of time but a cleanse that includes actual real food. And, judging from the menus, 90% of it is something I’ll like – the rest I’ll substitute/repeat meals. The focus is not on what I’m giving up, but on the good I’m doing for myself. Over the last couple of days I’ve been cutting back on coffee (gasp!), wine, and sugar, refined flours….all the things that we know aren’t really doing us any good! A few of those things I don’t eat much anyway. I did the first of my shopping yesterday and will do more today.

The most difficult part of this cleanse, I think, is “no strenuous exercising”…and I have a marathon coming up in what? 6 weeks? So I’ll do some slow treadmill miles and keep going to Bikram- which should be just fine!! And it’ll be great for my tendonitis too, to take a break

My goal for this coming week is to keep getting more consistent with my Bikram practice as well as getting in as many miles on the treadmill as i can without my foot falling off!! I’m not going to hit my mileage goal for the month but I will get in as much as I can in the next 7 days!! And I’ll also start deciding my mileage goal for March.

new week

    Well, that sounds like a fabulous plan! After coming home from a vacation Feb 11, I too vowed to drink less wine. So far, I haven’t even had 1 glass…what the what? But I did just finish an awesome trail race, took a bath, so it kind of seems like the next step 🍷Anyhow, have a great week and enjoy your plan of attack!!
