Fail to plan-plan to fail {challenge for YOU}

My morning started off with this face

Practically begging me to stay home and snuggle with him all day.
Mommas gotta work Max so she can buy you and your brother things like chewies and toys to destroy

It's Monday which means a new week,
and a new week means a new workout plan!

 I am still trying to figure out the best way to share my workout schedule VS actual workouts with all of you, so bare with me.

First lets see how last week went:

As you can see I planned a lot more for myself than I actually ended up doing.
My runs were much less than anticipated because of my sneaker issue, now that that is resolved I should have no problems making up the mileage.

In total I had 6 1/2 hours of workouts planned, and I ended up doing 5 1/2. 
Not too shabby

This week I planned a little less:

 I have 6 days of exercise with 8 workouts planned in total.
It should be around 7 hours of exercise, if I am doing my math correctly..which I am probably not.
Whatever happens, happens.

I spent 2 hours prepping meals for the week yesterday afternoon.
It made this morning much less stressful.

These are the meals I packed for work.
Breakfast: Blueberry Coconut Overnight Oats (recipe to come)
Snack 1: Fage Greek yogurt with honey, sliced strawberries and blueberries to mix in
Lunch: Salad topped with chickpeas, green apple and red wine vinaigrette as dressing
Snack 2 (pre-run): Think Thin bar in peanut butter

My dinner plan is Italian style tofu 
I will post the recipe for this sometime this week

I was reading this months SELF magazine (one of my favorites) on the train this morning and came across a new exercise move to share
I challenge ALL of you to try this at some point this week and let me know how it goes!

My plan is to do this after my run tonight, I'll report back later.
It will be my first run in my new brooks!!


  1. Oh,that looks like a great challenge. I'll try this before or after my plank. Good post!

  2. I also have recently switched running shoes from Brooks to Asics and absolutely HATE them with a passion. I love Brooks!!!!!

  3. Good Luck in your new shoes! Let us know how it goes, for sure!

  4. Can't wait to hear how your new shoes worked out for you on the run :).

    Have a great day girl!

  5. Wow! That pushup looks hard.. and Max is adorable. That would be a hard face to leave behind to go to work, all right!
