The Weekly Chase #60...and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Happy Monday! I had a wonderful weekend! Saturday morning I had an amazing 10 mile run! Then that afternoon I went shopping with my mother-in-law while all the boys stayed home and cut down a rotten tree in our backyard. I also got a new dishwasher since mine broke last Tuesday. Unfortunately the dishwasher I picked won't come in until Wednesday...so more hand washing ALL the dishes for a few more days. :-(

Sunday morning was spent around the house because it was rainy outside. That afternoon the boys had cub scout meetings. It's been a full weekend!

Now it's time for another Weekly ChaseI'm ready to tell you all about my goals for this week! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too!

Road Runner Girl

Here are last week's goals!

  • Goal #1: Run at least two times. I nailed this one! I ran THREE times this week!!! It felt good to get back on schedule!!!
  • Goal #2: Roll and stretch daily. Yep!
  • Goal #3: Write my Biggest Loser RunWalk Half Marathon recap. Yes! Thanks for all your words of congrats on my PR! Here is the recap in case you missed it! :-)
  • Goal #4: Watch my food portions and decrease my snacking after dinner. I did much better with this this week! I need to keep watching my portions. But I did really well about not snacking after dinner!

So here's the plan for this week!

Goal #1: Run at least 2-3 times this week. I will be running with my Sole2Soul Sisters on Thursday and Saturday of this week. I'm hoping to get in another short run on Monday or Tuesday.

Goal #2: Roll and stretch daily. My left quad is pretty tight right now. I'm trying my hardest to work out the tightness so rolling and stretching is a MUST!

Goal #3: Watch my spending this week. With car tags due this month and having to buy a new dishwasher, the funds are really low until our next paycheck. I need to be sure to budget wisely this week. Also Sawyer's gymnastics tuition is due no later than Thursday. I'm hoping for a money miracle! :-/

Goal #4: Watch my food portions and decrease my snacking after dinner. I feel like I did well with this last week but I still want to work on it some more. 

Hopefully I will be pretty successful with my goals this week!!!
