I am participating in the “Spring Chick Challenge”, hosted by Stormy, and it’s time for a Week 4 update goal setting for Week 5.

Challenge Goals:

1. NSV – running faster – I started entering my training plan into Google calendar, including all the speed workouts I need to do to get this done. Go me!

2. Nutrition – another tough week. Too much crap! Sugar, fried chicken, french fries… just too much crap all over. Need to get this under control!

3. Exercise – doing well – I’ve been running, swimming, and doing weights, although I did not bike last week, but I did Sunday morning.

4. Blogging – At this point in the week, I’m actually ahead of the game! Go me!

5. Visiting other blogs and sharing some love – working on it! I haven’t visited as many new ones as I’d like, but I’ve been doing good at keeping up with my regular ones.

As for my weight, I’m back up a bit this week (hello, point #2 and my food issues!), but I *will* get it down!

OK the mini goal for week 4 was to try a new exercise – I did not do this. But at swimming lessons last Tuesday we did a scissor kick drill that was new (and fun! Like running in the water!), AND I learned to do flip turns, which I practised again when doing laps on Friday. So I did do something new. :) Highlight of my week was learning those turns – I’ve been trying for over a year. As well, taking Tuesday off and reading the complete Hunger Games series was awesome – I rarely indulge myself like that!

Week Five’s mini challenge is to go caffeine free. Since I plan on cutting all sugar and processed foods this week, giving up caffeine too will be hard, but I will try. I already drink decaf tea and caffeine free diet soda, all I need to work on is my Crystal Light. I believe the kind I drink has caffeine, so I will work on cutting back on it.

Daily goals: Yesterday was OK – I got 3.5 out of 5. I only wrote 1 blog post, and did not get an evaluation done. Today is jam packed with stuff, including a 10 hour work day – I hope I can get a few things done!

1. 1 workout
2. 1 blog post
3. Create a list at work of all the little things that eat my time, and work on delegating.
4. Read 2 chapters.

    Mmmm…. fried chicken… don’t even get me started on that!
    I need to get real about my food to. I stay below my calorie limit, but I don’t spend them wisely. Ugh!

      I hear that! When I was doing WW, I’d fill up on 0 point veggies so I could have ice cream for a snack… not the best choice! :P But this week I’m trying Paleo – lots of meat, veggies, nuts, some fruit, but no grains or dairy. I’ll see how it goes!

    I can’t wait to hear about Paleo. I am interested…. I think if you get your eating on track…You are gonna be in the ZONE!!!

    What is your ‘new’ exercise going to be?

    What is it with the stupid food issues?? Last week I literally salivated over french bread for an entire week. It was all I thought about. I finally gave in and bought a loaf, had two small slices and threw the rest of the loaf away. They were the best slices of bread ever! OMG! But then it was all I wanted to eat after that. Not sure it was worth giving in to the craving.

      I’ve actually gone Paleo, three days in, I’m doing OK – Day two I wanted sugar SO bad, yesterday it was cheese (mostly because I was working with cheese to make dinner for my boys). But I’m already down more than 2 pounds! And the cravings are getting a little better.

      I know what you mean about giving in – especially with bread, one of my major trigger foods! I love a good crusty sourdough, I could eat the whole loaf!
