Wrapping it up

So this past week has been pretty awesome, I have to say. My basic goal for my meals is to hit them @ 80%. This past week I did about 85% with 5 days @ 100% w00t! This is pretty great..... for now. While I didn't go balls to the wall with my workouts, I certainly busted plenty of tail. I always have a tendency to overdo it the first week of the month (when I get a new program) and wind up beyond sore *see cramping* which obviously isn't a desired response. This week I was pleasantly sore, but not so much that I cramped whenever I engaged a specific muscle.

Just thinking about that happening hurts my soul.

This week, I have to focus on making sure to hit my functional workouts, which I often neglect. I'd also like to work on my weekends. This weekend coming up should be decent because I'll be working two 12 hours shifts, so my only options are the food that I bring, and the crap food at my job. I just hope nobody makes those fantastic cranberry/white chocolate cookies that I adore. mmmmmmmm. *cough* Next week, I'll have to go 7 days without a cheat meal.... because I've never gone 7 days without a cheat meal. Every time that I ever thought that I didn't NEED to indulge in something naughty, I've done it anyway because "I deserve it".

This week I felt relaxed and energized, and I'm proud to say that it was week 3 without coffee and I haven't even noticed. I'm checked in for the week and looking into choosing a show date. There's one in PA in January which may be a good one for me to do, but the fact that it's sooner than the tentative Spring idea is a little terrifying, but no worries. One day at a time....


  1. Hey Jenn,

    AWESOME on the coffee, Girl. AND, you *can* go without the cheat WANT to go without the cheat meal. On the way to a leaner meaner Jenn! :o)

  2. Hey Dee! I think I'm doing well on the road to not needing one and looking the other way when the opportunity stares me in the face. I've got a big challenge coming up this weekend that I'll have to post about... Wish me luck!
