The tagline for my blog is “trying to be my best self” with an emphasis on “trying.” The past week was my worst week in terms of workout time since I started working with my coach in January. I worked out less than five hours.
Part of the problem was being really tired after the previous week, having a bunch of things of my schedule (anniversary dinner, bike fit, etc.) and being out of town this weekend at a friend’s bachelorette. BUT, I know that those are all excuses and I could have made myself get on the bike or put on my running shoes a few more times last week, had I really wanted to.
So, I’m turning a page on last week and trying to get back on track.
My coach said that sometimes life gets in the way and I think that’s true. For example, today was supposed to be my big “get back on track” day, but I had a zillion things to do, since I was away this weekend. I had to work (of course), had grocery shopping to do, a bunch of errands to run, had to pick up my bike from the bike shop after work, and fit in two workouts.
Today was such a busy day that I didn’t even start my second workout until after 7 p.m. That meant by the time I was done I was starving. I made Feed Zone turkey tacos for dinner (delicious, BTW!) and didn’t even take a picture for the blog because I was so hungry.
But, at the end of the day, I got in the second workout and made the healthy meal, so that’s already an improvement on last week.
