Today's post might be the only post that happens this week.
I may have mentioned in the past that I have 2 jobs. I don't like to be bored, ya know? Well one of my jobs involves taxes. For those who don't know, the tax deadline is April 15th. That's next Monday. I worked 16 hours yesterday. And that's pretty much going to be the norm for this entire week..
So, yep. That's that. I probably won't be around blog world much this week, but I'm hoping to come back in full force next week. Wish me luck.
Switching gears a little here.. I meal prepped like crazy this weekend! I knew I was going to be busy this week and I really wanted to resist eating out, so I just made a ton of food so that all week I'd be forced to eat "leftovers". I made smashed potatoes. I cooked up some plain pasta. I cut up some fruit. I made portion sized carrot bags. I even made bbq chicken in the crock pot.
Bad picture because I took it with my phone and in my dark kitchen at night. So this week I have no excuse not to eat at home and eat some healthier things. Hallelujah.
Switching gears again..
I've been going strong on my spring fitness plan. I did C25K on Saturday, Jillian on Sunday, took yesterday as my rest day, and I'll be doing C25K tonight. I did skip last Friday, but it was actually an accident, so I'm not beating myself up over it. If all goes well, this will be this week's plan..
Monday - Rest Day
Tuesday - C25K
Wednesday - Jillian
Thursday - C25K
Friday - Jillian
Saturday - C25K
Sunday - Jillian
If rain throws a wrench in my plan, then I might have to adjust Thursday - Sunday. I really don't want to keep putting 2 days in between C25K, because I don't know yet if that'll affect my ability to move to the next level. I haven't gotten far enough to figure that out.
I also keep laughing at myself, because I hate running. I used to cheat on the mile run in gym class for crying out loud. So what in the world makes me think I can run a 5k? It's actually quite hilarious to picture myself
Oh and if you're doing any kind of a Spring fitness plan thingy, link up with KTJ! She's on a mission and wants to have a virtual 5k at the end. Such a good, cute idea! So link up, because I said so.
Switching gears once again, it was my Daddy's birthday this weekend! So here's a little shout out to my dad! I still talk to this man, every single day. No joke. He's a big reason I'm so into sports. Poor guy really needed to have a boy and got 2 girls instead. He loves me, he supports me, and he's one of my best friends. I'm lucky to have such good relationships with all 3 of my parents (mom, dad, and stepdad). Happy Birthday, Daddy!
Switching gears one more time..
This is the survey portion of the blog post. I know like 5 people read this, but I have QUESTIONS and I need ANSWERS!
Question #1 - Does anyone have any good stretches they do before and after a workout that they recommend? I'm sore and the only time it feels a little better is when I stretch, so I was wondering if there is a better stretch I should be doing? etc. Help me!
Questions #2 - Does anyone want to send me funny things this week to make me smile so I don't want to shoot my eyeball out at work? kstoll129(at)gmail(dot)com
Questions #3 - Who else hates Jillian? Like with a burning, fiery passion? And yet still continues to press play on their dvd day after day? (me, me, ME!)
Okay, I guess I have to get back to work now.
Good luck this week guys! And keep me updated on blog world!
I'll be checking my twitter and my emails!
