Monday

When in doubt, work it out! No Excuses here!

I’m really starting to love this new mantra. It’s pretty motivating. Speaking of motivation, I’ve been busting my butt at work since my not so great review the other week and it’s definitely starting to pay off. Doing a lot of client work that is really great for my portfolio and it’ll definitely be worth it in the long run.

I ended up staying at work until 6:30, so I couldn’t make it to spinning class. I was pretty bummed about not being able to make class, debated not doing anything but I really needed to go for a run, especially if I wanted all of my hard work to not go to waste.

Saturday July 21st & Sunday July 22nd Daily

FITspiration When in doubt, work it out. Saturday Still taking it one day at a time for now. Woke up semi-early today and had this really bad craving for biscuits and sausage/gravy. So I went to the store after having looked up ‘healthy’ alternatives and found that by using whole grain/whole wheat rolls as well […]

July 20th Friday up in flames…

Friday

When in doubt, work it out, and I did. Today was rough..

Thought today was going to be a great day. Started off pretty well, day flew by for the most part, I was in a great mood, and I had a review with my peers/superiors about how I’ve been doing so far at my internship.

Well, needless to say I thought I had been modest when explaining how I thought I had been doing. Turns out that I was wrong, on a few accounts, at how ‘not’ stellar I thought I had been doing. It’s honestly fine, constructive criticism in my field is what makes the world go ’round, but at the same time some of the stuff was hard to hear and no one likes to be told to change or pick it up unless it’s coming from yourself?

This was at the end of the day right before I left to go home, so I was ultimately in a very sour mood for the rest of the night. I got home and being at my Dad’s house there was a lot of food that I wouldn’t necessarily eat or even look at. So I grabbed the chips out of the cabinet, bad idea to begin with, and I didn’t put them in a bowl, just ate out of the bag, another bad omen… And before you knew it I was two servings deep in that bad boy with a lot more remorse on my shoulders than I’d like.

I ended up going running and it was a decent run, nice weather so I can’t complain and then I ended up going to see Batman. Good news is that I resisted any ice cream or popcorn or any sweets for that matter. That’s a plus?

Workout

Had a bad day, lots of doubts and took it all out of my system on a good run! I used Map My Run for the info below!

July 19th Thursday Daily

FITspiration

Thursday

When in doubt, work it out. This is still a trying process..

For some reason, I was really, really motivated today to get moving. I did a lot of walking this morning, with the dog since I’m dog/house sitting for my Dad. I had a decent day at work, nothing too thrilling.

Went home, let the doggie out and had a quick snack (leftover pasta) so I didn’t eat my face off at the restaurant. After work I met up with my Mimi and we went to Max & Erma’s for dinner. I definitely watched what I got to eat/portions. I ordered a lunch portion of a normal salad. The only semi-bad thing was the chicken (it was fried) and it was totally pathetic. Like a little chicken strip. Anyway, I split some french onion soup, figured that would be better than eating the whole thing myself.

Felt like going for a run afterwards. The weather was perfect too! It was a sign. The sun was hiding, a little overcast, cool breeze.

So off I went, best run and new time mile marker! I was hurting a little bit, so I’m going to have to be weary of that and start to hit up a yoga class again perhaps? Definitely don’t want to re-injure myself again.

 

Workout

Started off the day with walking the pup for 30 minutes. Supposedly it kick starts your metabolism, etc. Last night’s run was a little rougher than I thought it was going to be. I think it was a bit hillier than what I usually run, but the ‘terrain’ is going to be different wherever you go, so I can’t complain. I didn’t stop at all which I was impressed with and proud of. I accomplished another milestone in my summer and all-time running with having gone for 54 minutes! Then took out the pup for a cool down/walk. My legs felt shot afterwards. Used Map My Run for the info below!

July 17th .. New Motto?

FITspiration

Tuesday

Seems like I’ve found a new motto for these coming weeks.

When in doubt, work it out, eh?

Had a pretty rough day today, not for any particular reason but things just seemed to keep piling up against me and sometimes your foundation just crack a little bit…

Busy day at work, had a lot going on non-stop which was great and it made the day go by pretty quickly, but it was tedious trying to stay on top of everything that was going on. After work running errands, well things didn’t work out how they should’ve so that was taxing as well. I just went home, chilled out and then planned a remedy run that would hopefully make it ‘all better’.

Workout

 

Went on a very necessary long run. It was amazing, made me feel like a new person afterwards and I accomplished another milestone in my summer and all-time running! Used Map My Run for the info below!

52 Minutes Straight!! 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Food

According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 3,199 calories and consumed 1,020 for the day. Started off the day with some iced coffee with the works, fresh blueberries, a clementine and a Greek yogurt. Lunch was a salad from the little market up the street from work; spinach, cucumber, some red onion, feta cheese, little bit of ranch, sunflower seeds, and mixed greens, also had some watermelon and then some leftover couscous. Dinner was DeeeeLicious. I had a sweet potato, broccoli, leftovers from my Grandpa’s house the other night; baked chicken dish, cream of chicken, corn, carrots, and some green beans and obviously chicken. Had a small cup of vanilla custard for dessert too.
