Friday Five – Goals for the Next Week

Heigh Ho!

It’s one of the most fabulous days of the week–FRIDAY! WOOT!

This week has been a frazzling one at work…and not so great on eating as I made my favourite brown butter bourbon chocolate chip cookies this week and I believe I pretty much all of them in a few days…eek.  But I did get to the gym daily…minus one day off.

For my Friday Five this week–I’m going to outline five goals I want to try and accomplish…they aren’t going to be massive, but they are all related to getting me back to feeling like a normal human being again and re-establishing some sort of routine.

1. Continue with the weight training.  Though my quads are hating me right now, I am going to do my darndest to continue with doing weight training–even if that means doing it first before cardio so I’m not tempted to skip it.

2.  Find a post work snack to keep me from caving into junk food.  Any suggestions?  I’m thinking maybe a lightly dressed bean salad–make it on Sunday night and snack on it for the week?  Or maybe some of those little “power” bites?  I really want to avoid crudité because I just find that to be sorta meh…but maybe it will work if I find the right dip….who knows. lol.

3. Make appointments with my sports medicine doc and an athletic therapist–see what I can do about this stupid injury…given that it is likely not a hernia like originally thought.

4. Try going to the pool for a swim–it’s been ages and it might prevent my shin splints from getting worse.

5. Find some easy dinner ideas for this week…be it a slow cooker meal…pasta…whatever…just make it quick, simple and at least quasi healthy.

Do you have any goals for the week ahead?  Let me know!

  1. These look like great goals to me! I think a bean salad after work is a good idea–the protein and fiber will help keep you full until meal time. I’m looking forward to getting back into running this week 🙂
