Happy Sunday! It's the first day of the week, so I'm going to use this time to report and reflect on the week we just left.
Swim: 5225 yds, 1 hour 59 min.
Bike: 3 hours 7 min. Spin classes
Run: 11.18 miles, 1 hour 50 min.
Total: 6 hours 49 minutes
Not as much running as I would have liked, but great on swimming and biking. I am actually doing some structured swim training instead of just getting into the pool and swimming laps. The program is 1750 yards 3 days a week for four weeks. Each workout has a warm-up, drill set, main set, and cool down. I'll let you know how it goes.
I ate fairly well this week. Hardly any sugar, but my portions could have been more controlled. I feel great, and I did hide my scale. I am not going to weigh myself until February. The big news is I did floss every single day!! Go Trimommy!!
It was an exciting week with all of the bike action. That kind of overshadowed everything else. However, we got a lot of sledding done this week on Ryan's new mini-tube. (I especially liked it!) Noah preferred to just kick the sled down the hill and chase after it. I will be glad for everything to get back to normal this week. Holidays are fun, but they totally wear everyone out, and we have all been watching way too much tv. (Hmmm...could this have anything to do with the craziness at our house?)
It has been a great week. I always feel inspired by the beginning of a new year, and this year is no different. The real task is staying inspired throughout the year. I am excited for what is coming, and I just have to keep that feeling.
Today at church our pastor was talking about goals for the new year, and he gave us a scripture that was real encouragement for me.
Phillipians 3: 13-14 "But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Forgetting what is behind. Leaving it and moving forward. No one is perfect; we all make mistakes. Don't dwell on them, but push forward toward the goal.
Always push forward toward the goal.
