Work Out: C25K Week 5 Day 1 & 1 hour with personal trainer
Feeling really good though and I just love the feeling of settling into bed after a day with good workouts...like that tired yet satisfied feeling where you can just snuggle in bed sink into a deep sleep.
You will get addicted to this feeling and it will motivate you to keep it up!
This week brings a few challenges that I want to be able to get out ahead of. One is that I have four days of day-long meetings starting tomorrow, and all of them include lunch and snacks. I don't know what's on the menu, but the plan is to pack my own healthy snacks and that no matter what is served for lunch, I just need to practice good portion control. I'm pretty sure there will be a salad option at every meal, so I plan to start with that and have a salad before diving into any other food options. Also this week is a dinner/movie outing with a friend from work, so I need to get it into my head now that DINNER DOES NOT EQUAL EAT WHATEVER I WANT IN ANY AMOUNT I WANT. I struggle with that. I just love eating out so darn much. Avoiding it altogether works best for me, but I know that's not realistic in the scope of life.
Absolutely a great idea to pack your own snacks. Include a healthy protein so you aren't too hungry when lunch arrives.
I just need to keep in mind that I want to be able to rock the 5K when I do it, and in a much sooner sense, I want Sunday to bring some more good news with the weekly check in.
What a great attitude!
I just caught up reading your journal today and that is so exciting about your princess 5k signup! Setting a goal in the future means you are going to keep with this for longer than just setting a single goal for a month from now, etc.SUPER FUN UPDATE!!!!!
Just registered for the Princess 5k!!!!
