the weekly chase #9


As always, I am linking up my Weekly Chase goals with Mindy from Road Runner Girl. Below is a recap from how the goals from last week went over, and my new goals for this week.

Weekly goals for May 26–June 1; recap

Goal #1 - Continue to log all of my calories in My Fitness Pal.
Check! I'm finally starting to get back in the habit.

Goal #2 - Continue to clean the office.
Check!

Goal #3 – Go through my clothes, donate items I no longer wear, and pack away most of my winter gear (jackets, sweaters, etc.).
Sort of check... I need to wash my winter jackets before packing away.

Goal #4 – Catch up blog reading and commenting. Sorry for always getting so far behind, you guys, but time is so limited.
Check! But I still keep falling behind.

Goal #5 – Start collecting healthy recipes I want to try out over the summer in order to start weekly meal planning and grocery shopping.
Check! I'm excited to try some new recipes and try and be a bit healthier over the summer.

Goal #6 – Run every day. Runner's World Summer Run Streak started yesterday. The goal: run at least one mile per day, every day, starting on Memorial Day (Monday, 5/26) and ending on Independence Day (Friday, 7/4). That's 40 consecutive days of running. I've never done a run streak challenge before, so this shall be interesting. I literally have to set a reminder for every day, otherwise, I am likely to forget about the challenge! Forgetful much? Hey... whatever works!
Check! I have a 9-day streak going! It really is a great motivator to get on out there, even when I'm having a 'I'm tired and want to be lazy' day. Yay!

Goal #5 – Continue to run every day for the Runner's World Summer Run Streak.

  2. those are a lot of goals for one week! I also need to clean out my closet and give stuff away. I keep putting that off. Catching up on the blog stuff is like catching up on laundry!

    1. It really is – I don't know how anyone stays afloat in regards to blog reading. Do you have any suggestions?

  3. Great goals! I'm impressed that you manage to log all your calories. I had to do it once for a class and it took me forever! Woohoo Summer Run Streak!

    1. Thank you! It's not too much of a pain if I log while I'm eating or right after, that way I remember what I ate, and it only takes a minute. It takes me much longer if I wait till the end of the day, because I can never remember everything I had or what sort of portions they were in. Once you're in the groove it gets quicker ;) How's the streaking coming for you?

    1. Thanks. Yeah, I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep it up, but I'm trying really hard! Nicer weather helps, I'm not sure I'd be in the mood to participate in the winter haha.

    1. Oh my gosh–good for you on making it 4 days! You can always jump back in, if you want (or if you have the time... I don't know how moms find time to do anything! I applaud you). Those aren't lame excuses at all. Wedding dress shopping sounds like more fun, anyway :) Congrats!
