Fitness Recap: May 8-May 14


* Go to the gym at least 5 times: FAILED (only made it out 4 times)
* Eat clean (eat out one night and no cheating during week (cheating is random eating and nibbling on sweets): FAILED
* Stretch out after each workout: CHECK!!
* P90x Yoga: FAILED
* Weights 3x this week & Nike Training 2x this week + cardio all five days: FAILED (I did do the Nike Training twice!)

I started off my week great! In the beginning of the week I was eating clean and working out hard, things were great! Then Wednesday came around and it went all down hill from there. I had the major munchies and ate everything in sight! Oh well, it’s a new week and there are new goals!

May 15-May 21 Goals
* Cook dinner five times this week
(I always make excuses not to cook, but I know how important it is, especially when you want to eat healthy)

Ingredients for the week

* Workout five times-Weights 3x Nike training 2x
(I made my workout plan for the week with Google Calendar, lets see if I follow it)

* P90x Yoga (fingers crossed)
* Stretch after each workout
* Track all seven days for Weight Watchers

To start my week off right, I cooked one of the five meals for the week, baked ziti (Weight Watchers style). I also prepared pumpkin soup, salad, and lamb (compliments of my mommy). The baked ziti recipe was from Skinny Taste, she is an awesome cook who tabulates all the Weight Watcher points for each recipe she posts. Even though she tabulates Weight Watcher points it is still a great site to get fun and healthy everyday recipes.

All in all it was a great dinner, and I have plenty of left overs for tomorrow, which means no cooking tomorrow!

I was NOT pleased with the amount of times I worked out this past week. When I try to remember why I skipped out on so many workouts nothing comes to mind :-/  I think for the most part I was lazy. I would wake up in the AM and nothing, I would just turn to my phone and reset my alarm until it was time for me to wake up and get ready for work. What do I do?!!!!!!! Easy, I make sure to go at least 4 times this week. Will it happen? I don’t know. What I do know is that I will try my best and get my ass in gear so I can make my goal.

5.1-5.7 Goals
Go to the gym at least 4 times this week
Do P90x Yoga at least one day
Stretch out after each workout

Wish me luck!

What are your workout goals for this week?
