Okay. So this week was chock full of no routine, which is awful for me. I had off last Friday and this Monday for Memorial Day, and then I also was out of school on Thursday for a professional development day at Mercer County College. All together, that equals a confusing week. My goal this week, however, was to determine what steps I want to take moving forward, and this I have done.
I made three categories where in which I want to set goals: Mental, Exercise, and Nutrition. I decided I’m going to set these goals for now through the end of school, which would be June 23rd, at which point I’ll re-evaluate and adjust as necessary.
I have two goals here….sleep and meditating.
On non-training days, I will go to sleep by 9:30 PM. On training days, I will go to sleep by 10:00 PM. This will allow me to get up–and actually out of bed, so I can spend my 10 minutes meditating in the morning before school. This routine has totally been disrupted, and I think it is totally reasonable to be able to reinstate for these last 3 weeks of school.
- Mondays and Thursdays: Go to Karate 😀 😀
- Tuesdays: Arm Day
- Wednesdays: PT exercises/Leg Day
- Fridays: Ab Day
- Saturday and Sunday: Go for a walk
I am removing my time limits and stepping goals for the moment. In general I walk quite a bit during the week, and not so much on the weekend, so that is why I decided the weekends were good days for walking, and I would do other forms of exercise during the week.
- Dinners: Eat Clean Bro
- Lunches: Bought salad and chicken and containers to put it in
- Treat/Breakfast: Yogurt or Bananas with peanut butter
- Water: Bring reusable bottle to school
I ordered Eat Clean Bro meals for dinners. For lunch, I bought some spring mix greens, pre cooked chicken and light Italian dressing. I also bought bananas and peanut butter for breakfast and strawberry yogurt to satisfy my sweet tooth. This is probably not the most nutritious options, but it is a step in the right direction, so it will have to do!
As always, thanks for reading!
