An Idea of My Current Weekday Workouts

I have been feeling very distracted at work so far this week.  I’m sure it’s partially because the holidays are right around the corner, and also because our internet at work has been wonky so when I finally get into the groove of things it cuts out.  Very.  Frustrating.  Anyway, let’s not talk about work, let’s chat about today :)

Food

I started my day off with a simple Shakeology smoothie – 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup mixed berries, handful of ice, 1 vanilla Shakeology packet, approximately 1 cup of almond milk, plus some water to get everything moving/to the right consistency.

And then I ran out the door because both Josh and I overslept by a solid 30 minutes…again.  We really need to start going to bed on time (10:00pm) again.  For lunch I had more turkey meatballs and spaghetti squash.

As a snack around 4:30/5:00pm I had half of a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar.

And for dinner Josh made us chicken stir fry.

As for dessert, I’m going to try very hard to resist the chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream in the freezer ;) .

Fitness

Since I’m officially training for my half marathon in March I’ve been trying to fit in two, two mile jogs during the week.  Two miles may not sound like enough for training, but I’m doing what I can with the time that I have.  Along with my two mile jogs I’ve been fitting in a strength sequence that looks something like this…

I don’t do the same moves each time but I try to hit those muscle groups in some way.

Life

Yesterday, I decided to become a Beachbody Coach again!  I had really been thinking about it for the past month or so and after ordering Shakeology and PiYo over Thanksgiving I’m hooked again!  I’ll chat more about why I decided to become a coach again in a later post but in the meantime if you have any questions about products or being a Coach let me know!

Why do the weekends have to go by so quickly?  I miss being in college where you get three weeks off during the holidays.  All you college kids out there…ENJOY IT!!!  Since Josh and I have had very busy weekends lately (moving, Thanksgiving, etc.) we decided to be as lazy as possible this past weekend.

Hello!  I meant to pop in yesterday but plans changed and that’s okay.  Instead of working out I made a handful of trips to our storage unit in our building to get empty containers and summer clothes out of the apartment – I figured that was good enough and could skip the gym.  Josh and [Read On]
