TWO Weeks Weekly Recap & Catching Up (Plus 5K Today)

Hello my little friends....:) I am feeling pretty punchy today after a VERY long week. Brutal in fact. So, for those of you who don't know, I work for an advertising agency and work with P&G and Wal-Mart. I am currently an Acct Supervisor and am shooting for a Director position. So....I normally just manage one business (one retainer) and got asked a couple weeks ago to manage another business (that has two retainers) on top of that one. So, I am managing three retainers and my account service person is helping someone else.

So WTF does this mean for all of you??? It means I was completely MIA last week and pretty much got in two workouts last week (not counting today). My gal Cynthia made a pretty kick ass point and that is that directorship is something I might not have an opportunity for - fitness can always come back to me. And she is right. So I am being patient and not freaking out. My eating was ON all week except for this morning when I had 2 slices of bacon, 2 eggs over medium, a 1/2 cup of grits all mixed together and slapped on two pieces of toast. HEAVEN. That is my favorite breakfast in the whole world and I ran a 5k this morning (24 minutes and some change - 6th place overall female - not better than my last time BUT it had FOUR huge hills) so I said screw it, I am having a good breakfast. So now I will just make good choices the rest of the day and tomorrow.

Anyhoo, I am doing what I can with the time I have....next week is also going to be rough - I have Account Management College which means I will be in training from 8-5 for three full days of a four day week. Yes, I know I am whining but this means the rest of my work will have to get done at night or in the morning. So....how will I get in my workouts? And I am talking through all this crap because I know all of you go through this....trying to find the time to workout. So here are my options:

1. HIIT sessions (30 minutes or less).
2. Get up earlier (risk getting sicky).
3. Put me first and get the workouts in no matter what.

I think I will probably do a combo of 1 and 3. :) No more getting sick for me!

Good luck on the new position---that sounds awesome. And no--we dont understand all you job lingo but it sounds impressive.

I did days 1,2,and 3 of the program. Then I had to work 2 12 hour days and didnt workout---oops. So I was actually considering going back to nothing but cardio but I decided to give day 4 a shot. What was I thinking? This is the best program ever. EVER! Day 4 has been the toughest on me so far.

I WILL, I AM doing this program for 12 weeks.

Good job on the 5k pace again. You rock.
