23 Jun

It has officially been a week since we introduced our Terrific 21 plan.  For those of you who missed out on this exciting announcement, check here and here!

This past week has really been about prioritizing, finding little ways to work in exercise and to focus on the positives. That means, no getting down on ourselves for missing a workout!

“Some succeed because they are destined to; most succeed because they are determined to.”  We tried to live by these words this week. As you will see, we were determined to find ways to fit in exercise throughout the day, whenever it worked best for our busy schedule.

Our Weekly Goals:

Terrific 21 Plan

Week One Results: 

  • hydrate: Epic fail this week. We both remembered to drink coffee throughout the day, but unfortunately coffee is not water 🙂

  • listen to our bodies: Meh. We found ourselves snacking often this week, especially in the evening! We both think this is because we eat lunch inconsistently (still getting use to our 9 to 5’s)
  • positive thinking: Success! Even when we came home from work absolutely exhausted we still made an effort to SMILE.
  • stress free, worry free: Ok this week. We are both trying to work on stress management and relying on each other to stay positive tends to alleviate worrying. Sistah love!
  • eat clean: Our eats this week were on both ends of the health spectrum, ranging from healthy…

We also managed to fit in some treats often occasionally.

  • Every failure is a learning opportunity: This was a hard one to take to heart this week.  We were both a little disappointed in our Saturday run.  Due to lack of sleep and hydration on Friday, we were both fatigued and had no desire to really challenge ourselves.  Next week we plan on focusing more on making sure we make hydration and sleep a PRIORITY.
  • No excuse is good enough. Stay Active: Yes!
