It’s Wednesday and I have the pleasure of linking up with 2 Link-ups:
WOW WORKOUT WEDNESDAYS! with
Wild Workout Wednesday
Earlier this week Jen @ Pretty Little Grub shared a few of her confessions on her blog. I thanked her for honesty and for keeping it real because I have found that sometimes I don’t share my slip ups to many people and I find that I internalize my guilt or present in a non authentic way and that is totally against who I am. Jen I hope it’s ok that I piggyback on your confessions…..
I also found Mary‘s Runfessions…it seems many people have things to confess….glad I am not the only one!
So today as I begin to reflect on my April goals I will share my confessions for this month (so far)
Taking a week off after Cherry Blossom 10 miler was the best thing for my body
Confession: I appreciated the break and know that it was the right decision for me and my body but hated every minute of it!!!
Getting back into a routine after a break
Confession: I have a set workout plan for this week which started with a rest day on Monday and subsequent workouts for the remainder of the week. I worked out hard yesterday-yeah me……but did not wake up to workout this morning….. :(. I do plan to go for a run at lunch today to get back on track.
Today’s workout was:
Bar Bell Squats-3 set of 10 with 50lbs on the BarBell
Walking Lunges = 3 set of 10 with 45lbs on the BarBell
Stiff Legged Dead Lift:= 3 sets of 10 with 65lbs on the BarBell
1 leg bridges on step-3 sets of 12
Fire Hydrants- 3 sets of 12
Kick backs-3 sets of 12
Today’s lunchtime run will be 3-4 miles.
My workout plan for this week:
Wednesday-#rockyourcore abs and 3 miles
Thursday- #rockyourcore abs and upper body
Friday-Full body workout
Saturday- Ben’s Run 5 miles
Rock Your Core:
Confession: I have not done the core workouts on the slotted day since week one. I did complete week 1 and 2 successfully but have missed and struggled in week 3 and 4. I think I will rock my core again in May for real this time!
Confession: I have not been eating the most healthy. My girlfriend and I usually grill every weekend so that we have our meat for the week which I pair with veggies and sweet potato. this makes for easy food prep and healthy eating. When she an I talked this weekend, we recognized that it had been almost 3 weeks since we have grilled which means I have been make shifting on my meals and just winging it. what I know is that I do not do well when I wing it! I haven’t gone too crazy (those 2 bags of jelly beans at Easter don’t count!) but I am looking forward to getting and staying on track. We grilled on Sunday so I am set and doing well.
These are my confessions….do you have any you want to share?
