A Happy Belated St. Patrick's Day to one and all! I had a jolly ol' time celebrating the green and slightly inebriating holiday in Nashville while cheering on Indiana to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament! Matt, our friend Jill and I rounded out the weekend with a Kegs 'n Eggs 5-K around our beautiful neighborhood . Our team name was "Kiss Me, I'm a Hoosier", and we got a lot more shout-outs for our jerseys than I think any of us were expecting!
Now, it wasn't necessarily the prettiest race, but it was Matt's first-ever organized running event and Jill managed to finish like a boss even after yacking 1 mile in--that's commitment people! I certainly didn't break any records, but running 3.1 miles in under 27 minutes after a weekend of Level-Irish shenanigans is a win in my book!
|Team Kiss Me, I'm a Hoosier for the win!|
Unfortunately, outside of running this race and doing some moderate daily exercising, I haven't done the best job of keeping up with my usual healthy routines over the past week. Never mind that though -- Today is a new day of a brand new week and I'm promising myself that I will be better and try harder this week!
In the spirit of motivation, here's an update on where I'm at with my Goals of the Moment:
1. HIIT Workouts: I went 1/3 for HIIT workouts last week, trying the 30-minute Little method on the bike for the first time. This week, I'm going to achieve my goal of 3 HIIT workouts -- No excuses! :) When I've tried all 3 types (Tabata, Little and Turbulence) I plan on giving y'all a run-down of what I think about 'em!
2. Daily Fitness Habits: The daily challenges for #6packMarch are keeping me pretty on track here.
3. Drinking more water: I think I'm improving a lot here! It's hard to gauge exactly how much better I'm being about this, but I can absolutely feel the difference.
4. #6packMarch Challenge: I'm a couple of days behind, but I plan on catching up on all that ab work this evening following my HIIT session.
... and now, since it's Monday, let's Meraki!
In celebration of my love for Indiana Basketball, and our No. 1 seed spot, here's a fan favorite:
Happy Monday y'all! Best of luck with all your goals!!
Today's Question: What type of things motivate you the most? Inspiration boards, Upbeat music, Thoughts of summertime and bathing suits? I'd love to know!
