my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

Seriously, y’all. What happened to all my motivation of a year ago? I ran four times a week, I ate healthy, I was totally focused on being healthier. Fast forward to now, and it’s all I can do to finish like 5 things on my to-do list, much less everything. Ha. As if.

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment.

week in review: turning tides (I hope)

Linking up with Megan at Cleat Eats Fast Feets today. I’ve had pretty productive week. Not off-the-charts, not in the dumps, so it’s all good. This week, I… Worked 40+ hours at the day job. The usual beginning-of-the-month craziness. But I get a four-day weekend next week! Read two books, Trust by Kylie Scott and… Continue reading week in review: turning tides (I hope)

Obviously. Wednesday:  worked 12.5 hours for a total of 11,743 steps (5.56 miles). Thursday:  strength training + ran 2… Continue reading weekly workouts #3

weekly workouts #2

This week, I’m pleased to say that I hit 3 out of 4 of my planned cardio workouts, and all four of my strength training sessions! I wasn’t doing anything crazy—pretty low-key—but it feels good to have achieved some consistency this week. Here’s what the week looked like: Monday: Worked 14 hours, 12,583 steps (5.96… Continue reading weekly workouts #2

week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the feeling of accomplishment it gives me. Let’s see, I finished the draft of my final paper for my Leadership Theory in Communication class.
