January Jumpstart Day 6: goals & a giveaway

Happy Monday! It’s Day 6 of January Jumpstart! How was your weekend? Did you stay on track?

I did pretty good considering how my weekends have been going that last 8 weeks or so. I tracked all my food and I’m mostly pleased. Gotta start somewhere. I’m bringing back Goals Check Monday. I like to check my goals each week, it helps to stay on track that way.

#GoalsCheck 500x500

  • Tracking food: did well. Tracked every day since January 1.
  • Water: pretty good, can always do better.
  • Workouts: good, I got weights, abs and my runs in.
  • No fast food! I’ve made it 5 whole days so far!

We have an awesome giveaway starting today! Active Accessories is a great supporter, this week we have 1 On-the-Go accessory pouch in black to give away. I love mine, I’ve had it for a year. It stays in my gym bag. I put my drivers license and ID in there when I go run or to the gym. It has bobby pins, safety pins, chapstick, and a hair tie in it. ┬áIt will hold my phone as well.

Today is a rest day for me. I will hopefully get more sit ups and a few weight reps in tonight before bed. I’m bringing back plank a day too. More on that tomorrow! I also couldn’t resist the urge to get on the scale this morning, it was good news! Gotta stay motivated!

    My goals for this week are:
    1. hit the gym at least 3 days; Already 1 day down :)
    2. Stay away from the Cashews… they are my downfall; If I can’t resist, keep it to only 10 at a time
    3. Drink more water

  2. My goals this week are:
    1. FOLLOW MY TRAINING PLAN! Which means, I have to make time for my weekday runs (I’m bad about skipping them)
    2. Start incorporating some cross-training on my non-running days.
    3. Drink more water (I struggle with hydration too)
    4. Keep logging everything in MyFitnessPal.

    I worked out today on the treadmill. 5 easy miles. I haven’t ever used the Active Accessories but I would love to!

    No, & No, have not tried before, but look neat!!

  5. Amy Holland says:

    I’m just recovered enough from getting sick over the holidays to start exercising again, and plan to hit the treadmill at lunch time for an easy 3 miles. My half-marathon is in 6 weeks, so my goals this week are:

    1. Run 20 miles total this week, plus two days of kettle bell
    2. Pack my lunch each day
    3. No alcohol until the weekend. I do love an occasional glass of wine with dinner, but need to stay really hydrated and avoid unnecessary calories.

  6. Betsy says:

    I haven’t worked out today. Hoping for a walk after work.

  7. beth davis says:

    I have yet to workout today, other than my normal walking routine… It was burrrr freezing!

  8. Finally got my first run of 2014 in. Wasn’t great, but I got it done.

    My Plan for this week is 2 a days, running included at least 4 x’s and a longer run on the weekend. Started logging my food on Fitness Pal Again. Also More water. Eating fruit or fruit smoothies whenever I have a sweet craving. (I have had a bad sweet tooth since Thanksgiving and need to get that under control). Will slowly start weeding out a majority of carbs from my diet.

  12. Tami says:

    Have never tried but I think its a great idea!

  13. Carla S says:
