End of May and end of week wrapup

I’ve had a relatively busy week!  I’ve had meetings, entered (some) surveys for my research, had doctor visits, and walked A LOT!  While my headaches aren’t gone, they have been getting a little better.  This is progress, people.  I’ve actually had strings of days where I feel GOOD.  Remarkable!  I’m not 100% thrilled with the side effects, and I may have to adjust some things, but not always being in pain- well it’s nice.

This week was “ok” workout wise.  I know I need to start working harder and longer and make sure I am also getting to the gym to lift.  I’m trying to balance workouts, sunshine (when we have it), my research, assisting running a research project, GTA meetings and work associated with it, not to mention attending workshops and conferences!  Over the next 2 weeks I have a conference, a workshop and several meetings.  I know this may not seem like much to some, but trying to balance it all . . . isn’t always easy.

This week’s workout wrap up

  • Saturday was a beautiful day for lunch outside and a walk.

  • Sunday was just a rest day with a short walk.
  • Monday, I had an eye appointment and did a little shopping.  I also attempted to get some lifting done, but got through overhead presses and a few deadlifts and I felt SO sick.  It was really warm and stuffy in the gym and I was having a hard time breathing, not to mention trying not to be ill.
  • Tuesday, I attended a workshop at uni and walked round trip from there.
  • Wednesday I walked to my doctor visit (2 miles) and ran home from it.  I also walked to my GP visit and back again, with a extended trip to a different Boots for my prescription. My feet were killing by the end of the day!

  • Thursday I had a meeting at uni, walked home from it and then went on a rambling, errand filled walk with Stephanie.

Today I’m not sure what the plan is.  I have errands to do, as well as work.  My stomach is kind of iffy right now, so I am not sure if I will do any running.  If the rain lets up, hopefully a walk, maybe a run later in the day if I feel ok.

Anyways, on to a quick wrapup of my May goals.

1. Continue my version of Paleo 80% of the time. 
I’d say I did pretty well doing this.  I don’t think I lost any weight this month, but I feel good.  I’d give myself a B.

2. Get back to spinning.  Seriously.
Ummmm, does once count?  🙁

3. Continue to rehab my knee and try to continue C25K at least once a week.
Horray!  Goal achieved!  A+

That being said, what’s on the agenda for June?

  1. Lift twice a week- minimum.  If I have to wait for a bar, I wait or do something else.  You can do this!
  2. Cross something off my fitness bucket list.
  3. Continue to run and spin (go to spin, seriously go!) keeping in mind to go slow and not overdo it following 10% rule.
  4. Watch latte intake.  Just because I’m out doesn’t mean it’s an excuse for more coffee.
  5. Enter all of the surveys done on paper by the 15th.

Don’t forget to enter my Popband giveaway!

I’m doing a 5K on Sunday and raising money for Yorkhill Children’s Charity.

Have a great weekend everyone!
