Hello divas and welcome to another week here at Divas Run for Bling. I hope you had a fabulous Independence Day weekend. Mine was filled with family and friends and being a little lazy. It’s Monday which means it is time for another edition of The Weekly Report when I share the news of the past week and set some goals for the upcoming week.
The Weekly Report July 7, 2014
Workouts. Honestly this week was not a great week for me. The first couple of days, I was recovering from my Fitbloggin workout experiences. From there, I did not do a single day of running – not good since I am 10 weeks away from my next half marathon. I did manage a couple of days of streaming yoga via MyYogaWorks (see my review and how you can try out 1 month of streaming yoga free). I also was so inspired by the PiYo + Insanity workout at Fitbloggin, I got a copy of the Insanity Fast and Furious 20 minute workout and managed 1 day of that.
Nutrition. Yeah that nutrition thing was not so hot this week either. I did not track my food. While my breakfast and lunch food was pretty good, I totally dropped the ball with the dinner menu this week.
4th of July weekend. The holiday weekend was a busy one. We spent the day with my hubby’s family on the 4th. It was great fun as my sister-in-law brought her 22 month old so I got to have fun baby time. We stayed home on Saturday and I was a bit lazy, though we did get the grill out and had a totally healthy barbeque for just the two of us (see my 5 menu items for a healthy barbeque). Yesterday was time with friends at our Sunday School class’ annual pool party and cookout.
- Workouts. My goal for this week is 4 days of running and 2 more days of some sort of cross training. I am also hoping to do some yoga on the days of my runs to help stretch those muscles.
- Half marathon training. This week starts my half marathon training. My goal is for 3 days of shorter runs and a long run of 3 miles on Saturday morning. I know a 3 mile long run seems a little odd, but this is just week 1 so I will be adding a mile a week from now until race week.
- Nutrition. With my training starting, I plan on getting back on track with my nutrition. This will be super important as I start to add miles to my running.
