It’s Been A Minute

Hey guys! It’s been a minute. I’ve been totally slacking on my blog posts.  We went on vacation and ittotally threw me off.  Even though my blog has slacked off; my workouts have not. While on vacation I ran,  hit the heavy bag and of course did tons of walking. 

My nutrition is also still going well. There was a new seasonal flavor released (mocha) and it’s amazing! So I am still shaking and cleansing and leading an all around balanced life. 

I got my updated body fat, visceral fat, etc. taken. I am happy to say that all of my numbers have decreased! Woohoo! My visceral fat stayed the same but everything else went down. My weight, BMI, BF and body fat mass.  I can’t wait to see where my numbers go as I continue my healthy lifestyle and my half marathon training. 

Here’s my workouts from the last week

Rest Days Kinda Suck

I know that rest days are needed; especially after the workout week I’ve had but sometimes they suck. Originally I was going to get in a long run but decided I wanted to take today off. Now that it’s 8:34 pm I’m wishing I hadn’t opted for a rest day 😩.. oh well. I’ve crushed this week, so it’s good that I am going to take today to recharge. 

I am in a weight loss competition and it’s ending in the next 2 weeks. So I am going to have to kick it into high gear; this way I can finish up somewhere near the top. 

I am going to continue to follow my nutritional rebalancing plan and work on keeping track of my macros.  I also asked my husband to write me up 3 total body lifting routines that I can do next week. Maybe if he gives me a weight training plan; I’ll stick to it. I have the best results when I am lifting weights but it’s not something I enjoy, so I need a plan. 

Here’s how my week went

Sunday 

  • 4.0 mile run

Monday

  • 3.0 mile run
  • 60 mins body combat

Tuesday

  • 50 mins cycle bar
  • 4.5 mile run

Wednesday 

  • 5.0 mile run
  • 30 mins RPM
  • 20 mins shoulders & heavy bag work

Thursday 

  • 2.3 mile run
  • 50 mins boxing 

Friday 

  • Rest 😢

Hopefully you guys are crushing this week and ending on a high note. Don’t let the weekend ruin all the hard work that you put in during the week. 

Till next time!

I Can so I will

Last night I was on an amazing team call that was full of wonderful takeaways and perfect little nuggets of knowledge. 

As I continue to grow and work to improve myself from the inside out; these team calls have been giving me life.  So as I share my run thoughts from today you will see affirmations sprinkled through out.  My run thoughts are known for being a little funny, highly sarcastic, and full of my personality; now they will also hopefully be known for a little inspiration. 

If you follow me on Facebook then you know how I start every list of run thoughts…..I won’t deviate. 
Today’s run thoughts brought to you by the number 5

10. Light as a feather – I chant this because I tend to run heavy; problem with chanting this – the second half of the line – stiff as a board 😒

12. Was that my husband driving by? 👋🏾

13. Thank goodness back on my street 

14. Crap I miss calculated and now I have to run past my house
