I feel like dancing around like Rocky with my hands above my head because, people, I CRUSHED my mini-goals this week.
Here's what they were:
Monday Mini Goals week of 9/22/14
1. Walk/run at least 12 miles. Well, you all know I did that since I was super excited about it on Thursday. I added a few more miles on Friday and took Saturday as a rest day. My grand total for the week was 14.7 miles.
2. Lose 1 pound. Because I am doing Monday Mini-Goals I'm going to weigh-in Monday mornings. So how did I do? Lose one pound? How about 2.6 pounds?!?! Heck yeah!
I honestly feel like breaking down my weight loss to a weekly thing instead of a monthly thing has made all the difference in a world. Doing something, anything, for a week is doable. Watching what I eat for a week, walking everyday for a week, whatever, it makes it so much easier and far less overwhelming.
Plus, since I make the goal weekly, it's pretty fresh in my mind. There were a few times where I waffled and thought "maybe I don't want to walk on my lunch" but I remembered my goal and how close I was to breaking 12 miles so I walked.
Alright, I'm done patting myself on the back. Onto this week's goals.
Monday Mini Goals week of 9/26/14
1. Walk/run at least 12 miles. I like this distance. I think 12 is doable but also challenging.
2. Lift weights three times.
3. Lose 1 pound.
I joined Jess' Rocktober Challenge. It's a Facebook thing which is great for me since I'm not as into Instagram and a lot of challenges I have been in use Instagram so it's hard for me to update. I only have Instagram on my iPad so I don't think to take pictures of stuff until I'm on Instagram and see other people's posts. The Rocktober Challenge is a private group so anything you post there won't be seen by your Facebook friends. Feel free to join!
And of course I will be all over Skinny Geek's and One Crazy Penguin's Halloween Challenge! Feel free to join them with me! They're doing a Facebook group, too. How fun!
