Monday Tuesday everyone! Today Yesterday mark sed the end of my planned two week break, and I would totally be lying if I told you that I was a good girl and ate healthy during that time. I just can’t seem to motivate myself to eat well if I ‘m not being active ” it’s like my body CRAVES veggies and fruit when I ‘m training, and CRAVES absolute crap when I ‘m not. Getting out of this bad habit is hard. It’s like a downward spiral, and I think the best way to get back on track is to create an eating plan to go along with my training plan. I really need to keep this pin that I saw on pinterest in mind:
Speaking of training … it’s time to start my triathlon training for the Ontario Women’s Triathlon Sprint Distance Tri! Hooray!
I ‘m really looking forward to the variety that this will bring. I’ve made my up my plan, which will have me swimming 3x/week, cycling 3x, and running 3x. I’ve also planned out 2 days to do the Nike Training Club abs workout, and also my beloved BodyPump class 1x/week. It looks a little like this:
All in all it means I ‘ll be doing two workouts per day on most days of the week. It’s a pretty intense schedule, but I ‘m really looking forward to it because it’ll help me to relieve stress while solo parenting this summer. Yeah, did I tell you guys that? I ‘m solo parenting – As in all summer. Parenting.By.Myself. Hubby will be away on business and I ‘ll have the responsibility of getting everyone to daycare, work, soccer practices and games etc, while keeping the house & pool clean, food on the table and clean laundry in our drawers. Go me! I must be nuts for thinking I can do a triathlon a week after hubby returns. Oh well ” it kinda means it’s more than fair that he watches the kids by himself while I race right? (See ” there’s a reason for my madness). Let the training begin!
