Of course, the 27th is tomorrow, but I will include Saturday details on the following week. Let me just say, an activity recap totally keeps me on track. It is always good to access the damage of the last week so we can adjust.
It has been very busy here at LizForADay. I’ve been clean up pages, post, and images. What a mess. The good part was reading some of my old blog post. I found that I motivated myself, made myself laugh and it made me remember why I loved blogging so much.
There is still a lot to clean up, but I will take it in baby steps. Maintaining a blog is definitely a work in progress.
I’ve started getting it together with my exercise, eating and my life. I wanted to keep a good journal of all things Liz related. I’ve find that blogging helps me do that. It also makes me accountable.
So to help myself to be accountable I’m also taking a look back at my past week by posting a Friday recap. YAY for me!
Mind, Body and Soul
What I’ve been eating:
Mostly vegan. Vegan black bean burritos were my favorite this week. (Recipe coming soon)
How I’ve been relaxing:
Haven’t really been relaxing my mind. I’ve been filming and editing lots of videos. Hopefully next week I will be up to date with my videos.
How have I’ve been staying fit:
I Started exercising. I ran for the first time in almost a year and it didn’t kill me. I said it out loud for all the world to hear so that means I have to stick to it.
As a matter of fact, I’ve adopted a 1/2 marathon training plan from “Marathoning for Mortals“. I’ve done 2 days so far. Doesn’t sound like much, but it is a start.
- Day 1 – Run 3 min/walk 2 min, repeat 7 times. CHECK
- Day 2 – Crosstrain for 30 minutes. I chose to do yoga. CHECK
So far so good.
I ran a whole 2.33 miles this week as denoted by the tracker in the sidebar. I love trackers. Again it doesn’t sound like much, but it is taking all I have in not to go full throttle. Slow and steady is my mantra these days. I have plenty of time to do this thing.
I’m also using a Tabata training application on my phone for the interval training. I’m going to also do a separate post on this subject. I have lots to say.
I also started setting up a playlist for my runs. It is motivating when I hear music that is on my playlist. I’m going to make the playlist almost 4 hours long. This will be the list I use for the 1/2 marathon. I’ll share the music I have in a separate post and when it is complete.
Yoga was fun and interesting. I had to do a search on Youtube to find yoga for beginners. I’ve done yoga before, but I want to start from the ground up. Here is the playlist I’m using:
Next Weeks Goals
Training plan for next week will be
- Day 3 – Rest Day
- Day 4 – Run 3 min/walk 2 min, repeat 7 times.
- Day 5 – Crosstrain 30 minutes. Haven’t made up my mind what to do.
- Day 6 – Run 3 min/walk 2 min for 3 miles
- Day 7 – Rest Day
- Day 8 – Run 3 min/walk 2 min, repeat 7 times.
- Day 9 – Crosstrain 30 minutes. Haven’t made up my mind what to do.
I’m also attempting to cut way down on dairy and oils.
The last thing is to get back on track with my planning.
That sounds like a lot. It is totally doable for me. And let us not forget, I still have to work. Oh boy.
That about sums it up.
