Motivate Monday

Let’s start by reviewing the results from last week:

Weight loss: + 0.8 lbs

Exercise minutes: 100

Calories burned: 920

Daily goals met: I didn’t make goals for last week, hence the weight gain and the limited exercise!  It is finals time, but that’s no excuse.  I came off a lovely anniversary weekend with my husband where I indulged, but still tracked.  Then I thrust myself into a really busy week and turned to unhealthy eating habits (twice, ugh) and really messed with my mind and my weight.  Onwards and upwards though – every misstep is an opportunity to grow and learn.

Happy Spring!

Happy spring!  Spring is definitely the best season (until summer arrives, of course!).

In honor of today being the first day of spring, I wanted to post my seasonal goals here:

1. Finish Best Body Bootcamp strong! 

I’m starting Week 3 now and this week has got some SERIOUSLY kickass moves.  Today I conquered some supersets of large muscle lower body groups, with spurts of cardio in between.  Yesterday I enjoyed a fast-paced cardio session in the sunshine.  Skinny jeans – I’m coming for you!

2. PR a 5K race

I have a race in April that will probably be pretty slow, but I’m trying to run more to focus on my speed.  I’ll have more time after next week (thank goodness!).

3. Submit 3 nursing school applications

That time I’ll have freed up after next week will really help me focus on this too.

4. Write at least two positive things about myself each day.

Crazy how tough it can be to actually say nice things about yourself sometimes.  But it’s so important for self-esteeem and confidence building.  I’ll start here:

1.  I am patient

2. I have a great sense of humor

What are your goals for spring?
