#100DayChallenge #Day8

Tried a new to me workout style


Tabata.  And now I’m obsessed.

  • 12 minute warm up on the treadmill
  • 3 sets of 8 — tabata style routines.  legs, upper body, core
  • 5 minute in between on the treadmill
  • repeat 3 sets of 8 tabata work out
  • random upper body weights to wrap it up.

Let’s Make a Plan

Did anyone else have quite the indulgent weekend?

Sure I was super active on the slopes, but I may have also eaten my weight in granola, chips, grapes and goodies.  Sure — everything in moderation, but when I ski moderation tends to go out the door 🙂

No regrets — but there is nothing I like more than making a good, healthy plan for the week after a particularly indulgent weekend.

Workout Plan For The Week

Monday: Lunch workout/PM Yoga class

Tuesday: Morning Run

Wednesday:  AM: spin/strength + PM yoga

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Easy run

Saturday + Sunday: Ski/Long run

For my workouts this week, I want to focus on a few things.  Fewer runs : higher milage.  Nothing crazy — but bringing back the miles.  For cross training: YOGA AND NTC App strength


Monday: Pizza night

Tuesday: Out to dinner with Friends

Wednesday: GREENS!

Thursday-Weekend: Unknown but focus on balanced meals and drinking more h20

{we didn’t feel like doing a big grocery shopping trip yesterday so we didn’t meal plan. . . sorry ’bout that}


This is my big goal for the week friends:  I have a TERRIBLE sweet tooth.   I know I talk about this often on the blog, but lately it’s been a bit out of control.  Something I want to work on this week is switching up my evening routine a bit.   Most nights right now, I currently end my evening with a huge delicious dessert then crash straight to bed.  No time in between.

What I want to work on this week is changing that routine.  Instead of eating and then crashing — I want to deliberatly STOP eating dessert, take Gus on a 15-20 minute walk, then do my evening routine (brush my teeth, wash my face, etc).  If I’m still awake, I can drink water and read/watch TV/relax etc.  But no more snacking. . . end the evening with that walk.


And that my friends, is my plan for the week.

Anything resignate with you?  How do you END your days? With a sweet? Tea? A walk?

I Already Miss The Slopes

Happy Monday — comin’ at ya from the  office desk before the work week begins.


My brain may still be on the slopes though ;).

Zach and I were so lucky to get a quick weekend away in Winter Park this weekend.  Earlier in the season, as a season pass holder, Zach picked up a “Vintage Pass” which gave us 10 “points” to spend for nights at their hotel at a very discounted rate.  A weeknight = 1 point.  Weekends = 2.  So when you’ve heard me talking about Zach and I staying up in the mountains this winter, that’s where we’ve been.

This past weekend we used up the last of our points, but let me tell you with the conditions we had yesterday, we went out in style.  The snow was soft thanks to the previous days storm.  The sky was blue and the sun was right.  Zach and I were lucky enough to be able to lap some slopes without problem and generally speaking stay away from the crowds.  Not-a-bad-day.

In general, our weekends in the mountains include long days of skiing, afternoons of snacking and board games, dinner and an early night to sleep.  All to repeat the next day 🙂

Last Night

Thanks to easy road conditions, Zach and I were able to make it home in record time last night to relax and watch some hockey (His RedWings were on) and college basketball.  Zach and I did a friendly bracket just between the two of us so we’ve been having fun following the games, without the pressure of serious money or stakes on the line.


I was not feeling cooking, and have been on a major Greek kick lately — so decided to go easy last night and pick up a Mediterranean dish from out local grocer.

4 5

As always, it didn’t dissapoint and Zach even agreed that it was quite tasty.

We were super cool kiddos and in bed before 10.  Just my style 🙂

This Morning

I woke up with my body extremely exhausted and a slight twinge in my throat, so I decided to postpone any work out until after I was out of work for the day and slept in.  If you’re keeping track, that’s almost 10 hours of sleep last night.   Ski weekends take it out of this girl 🙂

With that said, I am planning a yoga class tonight (maybe even a hot yoga class) and some good workouts for the rest of the week, so don’t you worry 😉

Question of the Morning: Tell me all about your weekend!  I feel disconnected from all of you!
