FD245 – Focus Friday, Reviewing Goals & Food Prep

Back Looking, Forward Going

Focus Friday has entered the agenda for Liz. I love seeing all the snazy buttons and cool sayings on all the blogs I visit.  You know I have Soap Box Sunday and Wednesday Rewind and now, introducing Focus Friday.  I am sure I’m not the first one to come up with that one.  I can assure you that I did think it up myself.  I’m no theif.

Anyway.  I realize I’m the only one that can really read what is on the image.  It says “Back Looking, Forward Going, Focus Friday.”  I was attempting to be witty.  I hope it worked.  Anyway I thought since we are well into the year, this would be a good time to start taking a look at my goals.  I’ve been procrastination.  :(

Those goals being extremely short term weekly goals.  That works great for me.  I will be looking at my fitness goals and past and future week in general.  I always say you have to look at the past in order to know where you need to be.

So above is last weeks schedule and the projected next weeks schedule.  Having a schedule definitely takes the guess work out of what my plan is for that days workout.  You know I am a slow roller, so I have been changing my workouts very slowly.  I’m really not in any rush to kill myself.  I will leave that to the gun-ho fitness people.

So this week has been awesome.  I found a virtual race, which I will tell you about in a couple of days.  I got lots of fatty candy for valentines day, which I think I need to share, even though I said I wouldn’t.  I used my day off to do some serious cleaning and food prep for the week to come.  My room was a true Lizaster.  I’m still not completely finished.  Oh well. :)

I really love oat groats in the morning.  You should really try them if you haven’t tasted them yet.  You’ll never go back to regular oatmeal if you do.  I promise you.  I can cook a 1/2 cup dry and it will be enough for the whole week.  Now that is a cheap meal.

The black beans are for my quinoa & black bean burgers.  I already made the quinoa earlier today and I plan on adding some rice to it.  I swear my recipes are different every time I cook them.

Focus Friday
Peace Out!

OH I have something for you.  It is super beneficial to have a worksheet to plan out my workouts.  I made one that you can download.  You have my permission to be a better you tomorrow than you were today. :)

    Great idea to have a “Focus Friday”, I am thinking of having something similar at some point…I do plan my workouts for 3 days or so but tend to just try to fit in 3 runs and 3 cycles a week, alternating them:) Your Oat groats look interesting, I have never heard of them before. Have a great week!

      Thanks Robyn, I have actually written about them before. I promise if you try them, you will never eat any other kind of oatmeal. Warning, they take alot longer to cook. :)
