Happy Monday guys! I don’t know about you but I am SO ready for a new week/fresh start. Last week was long, unhealthy, and stressful. I am definitely ready to crush some new goals, which I’ll talk about at the end of this post.
Fletcher woke me up bright and early yesterday so I fed him and took him on a walk around the neighborhood. By the time we got back, Frankie was just waking up, so we chilled for a bit then headed to a 60-minute spin class at a studio near my mom’s house. It was SO much fun and the playlist was incredible.
We picked up some Dunkin pumpkin coffees after class.
And then we stopped by my dad’s house (my parents are divorced so he lives in the town next to my mom, where I grew up). He was out of town so he wanted me to pick his ripe tomatoes 🙂 .
Took these babies home for salads this week!
Then we picked up Fletcher and took him to a nearby baseball field for some fetch. He is a strange golden retriever – he doesn’t really “retrieve”. Rather, he’ll go get the ball and then try his hardest to make sure you can’t get it back.
He’ll also just sit there trying with all his might to tear up the ball.
After he was tuckered out, we drove home, took showers, and had breakfast. I had a bowl of GOLEAN cereal with almond milk, heated up in the microwave for 30 seconds 🙂 .
And soon after I had a Black Cherry Chobani with a banana.
We spent the afternoon watching “Friends” and wedding planning. We took a break to grab some pumpkin spice coffee from Bruegger’s (so good)…
…and to get a car wash. Who knew car washes are $20 now?!? (And please excuse our dusty dashboard.)
When we got home I snacked on a Fudge Graham Zone Bar.
And I had too many handfuls of banana chips, pistachios, cashew clusters, and spoonfuls of Justin’s maple almond butter. My mom always has the best snacks and I definitely snacked way too much throughout the weekend 😦 .
For dinner we picked up B.GOOD. I got their Spicy Avocado & Lime bowl with kale, sautéed veggies, avocado, black bean and corn salsa, grape tomato, queso fresco, lime, cilantro, chipotle puree, red pepper vinaigrette. We also got some sweet potato fries.
It was so good and filling, but of course I had to top off my day of nonstop eating with a Chipwich when I got back to my apartment…
Ugh. I was in the “it’s Sunday, I don’t have anything to do besides eat” mindset. Not good. So instead of moping around, regretting yesterday’s (and pretty much this entire past week’s) decisions, I am making a plan to get out of this unhealthy streak. Here are my fitness goals for this week:
- Plan my food for each day the night before, and STICK TO THE PLAN! (This is a new thing I’m going to try to avoid mindlessly snacking and overeating!)
- Exercise at least six days this week, and push myself during workouts.
- Drink at least 12 cups of water each day.
- Walk at least 10,000 iPhone steps each day.
- Keep a positive mindset and take one day at a time!
Can’t wait for a new week and a fresh start! Ready to detox and crush these goals and feel amazing come next Monday. Hope you guys have a great day!
For those of you with a dog – does he/she actually play fetch?
Tell me one or two of your goals for the week!
