First – I have to thank you all for your wonderful comments (yet again!) on my post about refinement. You’ve all been incredibly supportive and helpful and awesome at sharing new perspectives. Thank you, friends!!
I have to say – despite the horrid rain-filled forecast this week, I’m feeling good. On a Monday, no less. Why? Well – it’s the first full week of the Barre N9NE challenge – or week 1.5 if you will since late last week kicked off the challenge overall. OH – and before I forget, I added a page to the blog (notice the new layout!) to chronicle my Barre N9NE journey so feel free to go there to backtrack if you’re a newer reader. 🙂
So yes – week 1.5 is ON! And here’s how it looks:
Sunday – run (roughly 5 miles…the day prior we ran almost 7, I was SO HAPPY, running mojo, I’ve missed you!)
Monday – Barre N9NE method
Tuesday – AM run (rain be damned!); Barre N9NE Lean & Toned
Wednesday – AM or PM run, depending on weather
Thursday – possible run; Barre N9NE long and lean legs (killer!); Barre N9NE barre fusion
Friday – rest
Saturday – either Barre N9NE method or Barre N9NE at the lake (depends on the rain); and possible run
Whew! I’m tired just looking at that line-up…but equally excited to work, work, work this week!
Another plus in my book? After just one week of the food log and I’m LOVING it. I feel more in control and mindful of my eats – not in an obsessive way at all, just mindful. Exactly what I need right now. AND I successfully made it through the weekend (including an impromptu cookout with the in-laws) without overdoing it AND I was able to have some wine to boot. Major win in my book. 😉
Happy Monday friends – have a ‘feeling good kinda day, will ya?
Love it sis. I can’t wait to get started tonight! I hear we are in for a butt-kicking 😉
Bring it on!!! (I say this now…wait until we get to class, hehe)
way to get in those runs girl! I love it. Happy Monday indeed!
woohoo, loving the running, even if it means some runnnning in the raaaaain this week, right?
Sounds like a fun week!
I have never been good about food logs. I always find it daunting to keep track of everything I eat. I’m glad you’re handling it better than would have!
I’m thinking so too…if not rather exhausting, but I’m excited to dive into the first full week. SO much!!
Yeah for a good Monday!! Glad the food log is working out well for you. Love the new blog design, it looks really good. Just wondered about the barre workouts, do you get muscle soreness during the workouts or more after the workouts?
Thank you! I thought it was time for an update, this feels fresh and fun.
And yes, I usually get some pretty good sized DOMS (especially in the glutes/hamstrings) a day or two later…though the core has been sore lately too, ALL good in my book! We’ll see what *doesn’t* hurt after this week. My money’s on EVERYTHING 😉
Woo! That looks like a tough workout plan but i know you can do it!
Ha, now that I look at it again, I guess you’re right! But I’m SO up for the challenge!!!
I’m very glad to read that there is running mojo and wine in your life! I am exhausted looking at the schedule though — seriously, WOW!
You are funny – did you really think, even for a second, that I’d nix WINE from my life?? That would be just TRAGIC if you ask me. 😉
I love that your latest challenge incorporates everything that you love about fitness and healthy eating. I can sense your excitement and enthusiasm in every post. Nice work!
It’s really making for quite a happy “me” these days – this challenge came at just the right time and I’m LOVING it so far! Wahoo!
Happy to hear that the food log is really helping you!
I am, too. I’m surprised I’m far less stressed about it than I anticipated. Big sigh of relief.
Looks like a tough program. Don’t know much about the Barre N9ne method, am checking it out right now 🙂
It is awesome…I need to do a post on the class style, and your comment reminded me that doing one this week might not be a bad idea!
So glad the food logging is turning out to be a positive thing for you!
Seriously, me too – you KNOW how easy it is for me to get caught up in stuff like that. So I’m really, REALLY relieved that it hasn’t been a source of stress for me, so far, at least.
