Weekly Progress and Goals

Last week was pretty great. I ate out twice for dinner over the weekend, but only splurged the second a local Mexican restaurant. I feel like it is pretty easy to order healthy Mexican cuisine, however, when they set that basket of death (read: free chips and the most delicious salsa ever!) in front of you right when you sit is so hard to crawl back out! I ended up ordering chicken stuffed with a pepper and queso, but what I didn't notice was that it was going to come fried. I had a moment of panic when she set my plate down, but then decided to just let it be my splurge for the week. We split an appetizer and I didn't drink, so it turned out ok! As for my goals update...

Monday: Intervals and strength training - 6 am: Done! I ended up doing this workout after work.
Tuesday: Power Hour - 6:30 am: Done!
Wednesday: Intervals and strength training - 5:30 pm: Had a killer headache, but made up on Thursday after work
Thursday: Power Hour - 6:30 am - Done + Wednesday's workout
Friday: Jog 3 miles @ work - 4 pm (may take this day off) - took the day off!
Saturday: Run 30 minutes + Power Vinyasa - 9 am - Done!
Sunday: Yoga - 9:30 am - Done!

I only got to a little over 8 miles for the week, so that is something I will have to keep in check. I did 2 early morning workouts rather than the three I planned...another thing to continue working on.

1. Track everyday and stay within calorie range - I tracked everyday, but was a little over on Sunday (Thanksgiving with some family)
2. One dinner out per week - had 2 dinners out on Friday and Saturday
3. 2 alcoholic drinks per week - Done! 2 glasses of red wine on Sunday
4. limit added sugar/unhealthy fats to 200 calories - Over on Saturday and Sunday:(

I think I need to work on limiting added sugar and fats during the is going to be especially hard this coming weekend with the holiday:/

Monday: Run 2 miles 3 pm, Power Vinyasa 6 pm
Tuesday: Power Hour 6:30 am, ST 5:30 pm
Wednesday: Run 3 miles, Power Vinyasa 9:30am
Thursday: off
Friday: Run 3 miles + ST 9 am
Saturday: off
Sunday: Yoga 4 pm

I am hoping to get one workout while I am out of town Thursday- Saturday..I think I can do it:)

I already ran 3.5 miles during work today, so I am off to a good start! I am noticing so much improvement in running and yoga, that I am starting to get excited each time I get to do it!


  1. Your doing so great Gina! REally every once in a while we need to be human don't we, the unfortunate part is it always ends up on the weekend :-)

  2. I'd consider that a very successful week. You got a lot of exercise in and you even managed to fit in a splurge. I'd say it's a good balance.

  3. Great job again this week, Gina!! I'm SO impressed by your intense workout schedule! :)

  4. Sounds like you are doing great Gina! Way to keep to your goals! I am afraid to set such specific goals in case I fail. I think I need to take note of that and give it a try.
