I am so excited about this month.
First, I love September. Its fall, its my birth month, and it is just the perfect month, in my opinion. It is like my spirit month or something 😀 So I am especially excited because last week I feel really good about my goals and what I accomplished! I ate well and I worked out 4 times for a total of over 4 hours! I could not realistically tell you the last time I worked out for over 4 hours in a week. And on top of all that, I burned just under 2400 calories! In a week! Woo 😀
I am ready to keep this momentum up! My FT60 set the same goals for me this week, with the comment that I need to stay the heck out of zone 3. Specifically “Lighter training is highly recommended. Make sure you reduce training time in zone 3.” I am working on it! So I am looking at different workouts in my huge library and seeing what I can do to still get a good workout but keep my heart rate under 155. I am also doing some research to understand why my watch is so adamant about me not going over that.
Goals for this week!
Keep on keeping on with food. I feel good with where I am with the 21 Day Fix so I plan to keep on that plan.
Workout more times for less time. I am shooting for 6 home workouts and a longer run so a little bit every day, rather than 4 long days.
Actually get outside. Confession- I haven’t gone for a run yet. I think I have built it up in my mind and I am scared. Just gotta do it! If I can workout like I did last week, I can get my ass outside and run a little bit.
I plan on not letting my birthday this week derail me. Mostly by not making any plans at all. In fact- I am working that night anyway, so with any luck no cake will be consumed. And if I do, whatever. It won’t ruin me.
Bring it on September! Let do this!
