November fitness recap

I know the journey to getting in better shape is a slow and steady one.  And little goals along the way will help me reach my overall goal.  So I have fitness benchmarks I want to reach each month.

Work out 16 days a month.  Grade = C
I worked out but I wasn't as diligent as I should have been.

Strength training once a week.  Grade = D
I've fallen out of the BodyPump routine.  And I just put my gym membership on hold (more on that soon). So I'll have to find another way to get strength workouts in.

Track my food each day.  Grade = C
Meh. Some days I just don't feel like it.

12 Races in 2016 update:
For the second year in a row, I did the DSM Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving!


Last week's workouts
Friday: Off
Saturday: Off
Sunday: 10-minutes on the treadmill + 20 minutes of arms, chest, and shoulders
Monday: 2-mile run

Tuesday: Barre class
Wednesday: Yoga

Thursday: Off

Much better week, right?


And then there was this ...

Final mileage =17

Not great, but it's better than zero, right?

  1. Yes, it's better than 0, AND it's over half of the miles you were shooting for! I've found that there is something to be said about balance. This is a busy time of year, and while it's probably best not to overindulge, it's ok to not track your food because you have a fun event to attend! I think that as long as you are making an effort overall to get workouts in when you can and eat as good as you can between festivities, that's totally ok! :) Congrats on hitting your goal of doing a race every month this year! (I know that's not in this post, but I saw it on Instagram!)
