Monday Mini-Goals 9/13

Hello and Happy Monday! Even though I was on vacation all last week I am not ready to get back to the real world yet. Oh well, here we go!

In order to help me bounce back from vacation I’m setting Monday Mini-Goals again. I love the idea of weekly goal setting. One step at a time, right?

Goals for the week of 9/13/10:

1. Get 8 hours of sleep every night.

2. Do Jillian’s 30 Minute Shred every day until Saturday.

3. Eat Clean – specifically, no candy, ice cream or cookies. I overdid it on vacation and want to clean up my eats this week.

Run – I did 5.5 slow miles this morning. Level 1 Shred made me sore and my muscles didn’t want to cooperate. This only proves how much I need to do more strength training. Ouch.

This morning I was craving a fruit smoothie, but don’t have any fruit flavored protein powder (I’m returning the last one I bought). I decided to try this individual packet of Tera’s Whey in Chocolate. IMG_1032

The nutritional information is amazing! 20 grams of protein for 110 calories. Nice.IMG_1034

I blended the packet with ice, water, spinach and chia seeds. For some reason it didn’t want to incorporate well and was clumpy no matter how long I left it blending. Boo. IMG_1035

Outside of that it was tasty. But, I still want to track down my fave protein powder…IMG_1036

What are your goals for this week?



  1. says

    yay mini goals! definitely a good idea to be held accountable on a short time interval. mine is to get at least 6 hours of sleep each night. I WANT 8+ but realistically I think I’m going to have to shoot for 6 then build my way up

  2. says

    Mini goals are the best! They totally help keep me focused on the smaller picture….which I tend to forget and want to jump over!

    My goals are to stay positive, track every day and to take a rock climbing course on Saturday!

    3. At least 2 days of strength training – starting with Jillian’s NMTZ tonight after running!

  4. says

    To hit the gym every day this week. Not at the same intensity, but to at least remain in the habit!

    And to determine to figure out a way to *ahem* keep everything flowing without having to rely on dairy!

  5. says

    I really want to try Tara’s Whey! I’ve read good things on blogs.

    -Track all of my eats down on paper. Try to get the correct servings of protein, grains, fats…etc.

    -Run 2-4 miles on Wed, Fri & Sunday

    -Strength train on Tues, thurs & saturday (using 30 day shred and a Jackie Warner DVD)

    -Learn to tape my knees correctly!
