plans, plans, plans

Posted Sep 05 2011 8:54pm

My life revolves around plans. Meal plans, training plans, weekend plans, work plans.

It’s okay though, because I love planning things out.

I seriously can’t believe that August has come and gone. This year is flying by! Chris always tells me the older you get, the faster time goes. I think he might be right – but never tell him I told you that.ever.

August saw some improvement on the running front. My mileage increased a little bit, and I had some great workouts.

I ran a total of 54 miles in August, which is a slight increase from July. Obviously the mileage is not ideal, but it’s better than it’s been in months.



Last week however was not so stellar in the running department.

weekly workout recap

(actual in bold)

Monday: 3mi + weights/pushups    3.6mi run treadmill
Tuesday: Xtrain                     circuit workout
Wed: 6mi + pushups                rest
Thurs: 3mi + weights               rest
Friday: rest                        rest
Saturday: 8 mi                     8 mi w/ running group
Sunday: 3mi + pushups             rest

(I am super duper awesome at resting, aren’t I?)

yah. running 2 days, and xtraining one day isn’t exactly awesome. but, it is what it is.

plan it out then work it out

Monday: xtrain – upper body
Tuesday- 5mi
Wednesday: 3mi
Thursday: 4mi
Friday: Rest or xtrain
Saturday: 8-9mi w/ running group
Sunday: 3mi recovery
total: 23-24mi

Weekly meal plan

  • whole wheat pizza with green peppers, onions, red peppers, turkey sausage & turkey pepperoni (monday night)
  • shepherds pie w/ ground turkey
  • veggie fajitas
  • minestrone soup
  • honey mustard chicken w/ broccoli
  • chicken w/ balsamic onions & parmesan potatoes
  • sausage & veggie pita sammie

Two of the meals are from last week that we didn’t make. It seems kind of wrong to be making soup since it’s still so hot out, but I’m working on getting into the fall spirit.

I even went to joAnns, target, big lots, and the dollar tree looking for some cute, but not to cheesy fall décor.

I think I love pumpkins.

I didn’t find any décor, well I did, but it was more than I wanted to pay at big lots and target didn’t have much out yet. I’m thinkin’ I’m going to go with some kind of pumpkin theme.

WHO AM I? I’ve never wanted to decorate before. I want cute little decorative hand towels.

Do you decorate for the seasons? holidays? I’ve only ever decorated for Christmas.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day
