Weekly goals

Operation Skinny Jeans

Last Week

1: Continue C25K.  Figure out a way to find a time and place, and maneuver our non-jogging double stroller.  Our stroller held up pretty well yesterday.  That was the only day I've done the C25K since last Monday, but we've been dealing with some crazy weather.  The fact that I did it at all her at home with people that could recognize me, our busted up sidewalks, and my non-jogger stroller is a success.  I'll likely head out tomorrow for another run.

2. Get a group of ladies together and host a work out at least one day a week.  Again, I blame the weather.  But.... I did contact a group of ladies and a friend to create a circuit plan for us.  We may be able to start it this week after all.

3. No chocolate or unhealthy snacks.  Zero.  At least until the weekend.  Failure!  I continued to snack at home until Thursday and I've had zero unhealthy snacks since then.  Why Thursday?  We had a nurse come over Friday morning to do our physicals for our life insurance and I got a little more motivation.  Isn't it funny how, once we finally break the bad habits, it's easier to stick to for a while?  Then we start the snacking and that lasts longer than it should.  Why is it so hard to just get right back on track?  I know better than to say, "I wrecked it last night, so what does it matter."  You can know all the right things to do, but that doesn't make it easy.

Goals This Week
  1. Get through all of Week 3 of C25K
  2. Keep up the healthy snacking, don't go backwards here!
  3. Work out with the ladies Tuesday


  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one doing C25k! I've started and stopped it so many times in these past two months and I'm hoping to stick to it this time.

    Good luck with your Tuesday workout with the girls. You are so much braver than me. When I work out I want no one to know me ha.

    1. Couch to 5K. I have the app on my phone and I just finished Week 3 Day 3 where I walk 90 seconds and walk 2 minutes - not too shabby, but it's getting harder next time!
