I have a love – hate relationship with the first day of school. I love it because of pictures like these…
I despise it for the traffic, the headache, the chaos and did I mention the traffic?? I’m hoping tomorrow is better. Hope being the key word.
Despite my woes, the kids had a great day. Today was B’s first day of 1st grade (I keep wanting to write Kindergarten <—seems like that was just yesterday!) and L’s first day of Preschool 2. Moving on up!! As I predicted, B LOVED extended day – and is excited about his first “cooking class” tomorrow.
In other news I had a such a great workout week last week!
I managed to fit in 6 workouts and do ALL of the strength training workouts from Tina. While I’m sore and I was definitely challenged, the workouts weren’t impossible, which I appreciate. Workout C was the most difficult one for me to get through. I don’t know if it’s because I just didn’t love being “pressed for time” (it’s a timed workout) or if it’s because I just wasn’t feeling ANY kind of workout on Saturday.
One thing I’ve been remiss about mentioning are my goals! Each week we are supposed to pick two goals and stick with them. My first goal is always DO THE PLANNED WORKOUT. It’s kind of a broad goal, but there are plenty of times where I will have a challenging workout planned out for me– and then I go to the gym and wuss out. With the exception of last week – I have been doing pretty good with this goal!
My second goal has changed each week, last week’s was to go to bed early (that’s before 11 for me – ha!) and for the first time I ACTUALLY hit my goal. Amazing.
I’ve decided to switch up my goals this week — and now that I’m posting them, I am holding myself accountable!
1. Work out in the morning – The start of school also means that I get to work later/stay at work later — so no more afternoon workouts (unless I’m not taking B to school). I got “lazy” this summer and found excuses to skip out on my early morning wake ups — but this can’t happen anymore!
2. Drink more water – I fail when it comes to drinking water. My goal is to fit in at least 64oz of water every day. So far, so good — but I tend to peter out as the week goes on, so we’ll see!
That said – I’m ready for a new week. Bring on the NEW Phase 3 workouts!!
Pick 2 goals for the week (not necessarily fitness related) — what are they??
