Despite being on vacation and having lots of parties last week, I’m doing pretty well in terms of developing healthy habits for 2016!
Let’s recap my goals from last week:
Exercise 3 times
How did I do? I ran twice, and also spent a whole day cleaning. I think that counts! While on my run I had to stop and take a photo of the beautiful winter landscape. I’m also proud to say that I PRd my 5K and 10K times!
What I did today: Hilly 10k loop by my house, 5k and 10k PR according to the @garmin ! Beautiful day to #getoutside #fmsphotoaday #fitfluential #sweatpink #runtoinspire #training #runchat #running #happyrunner #workouttime #instarunner #instarun #instagood #cardio #marathon #time2run #longrun #puremichigan
Develop Training Plan
I decided that my goal races for this year will be the Bayshore Marathon May 28 and the Sunrise Side Half Ironman on September 10. It’s been several years since my last triathlon so I have a lot of training to do! I have picked my training plans and realized that in order to fit it all in, plus have time to do things in the evenings, I am going to have to work out in the morning. Gulp! I am so not a morning person.
In order to develop THAT healthy habit, I turned to some of my fellow #FitFluential Ambassadors for advice. They delivered!

What I realized is, the routines I’m developing will definitely come in handy! I’m working on integrating the FlyLady method into my daily life. (More about that Wednesday). I am going to set my alarm, pack my bags, and have no excuse for not getting up and out the door in the morning. I’ll let you know how it goes!
Finalize Cleaning Plan
This one is still in process (I’ll share how far I’ve come on Wednesday, as mentioned above). BUT, it feels good to have a plan and I feel so much more organized. My kitchen looks awesome too if I do say so myself. Of course, the meal planning and weekend prep I wrote about last week definitely help keep things tidy!
I am LOVING meal planning. I even made this binder to keep myself organized:
#renewal : The new year has inspired a renewal of menu planning and organizing. I designed a pretty binder cover and spine to keep me motivated. Once I use it awhile I will replace the temporary tabs with pretty ones. #sundaysupper @sundaysupperfam

Overall, I feel pretty good about the healthy habits I’m developing.
My goals for the coming week:
- morning workouts
- continue to refine cleaning routines
- continue to refine meal planning and weekend prep
