This week all is about accomplishing goals. My 11th race is just around the corner and I need to start focusing more on my training run and healthy habits. From here on out there is no more excuses I need to stick to my training schedule or make the necessary adjustments to reflect my schedule for the week. I am committing myself to 3 runs a week anything more is a bonus, that should not be too difficult? Right? Before I go into this week’s goal let’s see how I did with last week’s goals.
Respect my Garmin (C+)
While I was very respectful to my Garmin there were times that I still decided to ignore its beeps and chirps. I have to admit that my GI issues did not help the matter, but going along with my “No More Excuses” clause I can’t use that anymore and I simply must respond to my watch. Rather than come up with another excuse I need to reflect on my present intervals and see if I need to make modifications to reflect my current running ability. I think that I will roll this goal into this weeks goals.
Diversity in Food Selections (B-)
I can proudly say that mission was accomplished! I not only made sure that I rotated my food choices, but I also had variety, which is always a plus when you eat the same thing day in and day out. What could use better restrain is my noshing on Ghirardelli White Chocolate morsels. While I was really strong the first few days into this goal, by Wednesday it was getting tough. I am not going to lie to you, I went to the dark side and my hand went into that bag 3 times during the week, which is a huge improvement.
week’s Months goals are…(Which is officially changing into monthly goals. I feel that I will have more time to focus on each goal this way.)
Respect my Garmin: Failed see above for more details.
Discover 2 local Gluten-Free restaurants: This evening I was referred to as a “regular” at my local Whole Foods for dinner. Yes, I love eating there because I know that the food is safe and I am always guaranteed a good meal, but seriously people this is not a restaurant. Being regarded as a “regular” at Whole Foods is not a good thing, as healthy as might sound.
Get more sleep: For the obvious reasons.
QOTD: How do you stay motivated? Do you like to set goals for yourself? Do you prefer weekly or monthly goals?
