Seriously, it’s the coldest day of the year in Atlanta but I decided not to let below freezing temperatures deter me from this week’s fitness schedule.
I’m excited to move forward with a new schedule and routine to help me meet my 2012 fitness goals.
While I haven’t set a running goal yet – I’m deciding if a I’m going to do another full or make this the year of the halves - I do have 3 other goals that I’m determined to reach in the first half of this year. Maybe a new birthday goal is brewing. Ahem.
- To decrease my belly fat and find my abs
- To increase strength & muscle definition
- To increase flexibility
In addition to running at least 4 days a week, I’m adding strength-training and stretching to my weekly schedule. As a former personal trainer I know firsthand what a difference this will make in helping me crush my goals!
Today’s schedule included running and upper-body work.
I knocked out a COLD 3 miles then got busy in the warmth of my living room with two 15lbs dumbbells.
After, I whipped up this protein recovery shake. Vanilla soy milk, chocolate protein powder, frozen strawberries and a banana. I LOVE that being healthy can taste so good!
Now, I’m off to get a little work done. Happy Tuesday … and make sure to do something on-purpose to take care of you!
