Progress on Goals for the Week

July 25, 2008 · 7 comments

Since we are leaving for Boston this morning and not getting back until Sunday night I thought I would post an update today on my goals for the week since I won’t be posting my normal Sunday update (and unless I have the time and a computer in the hotel I probably won’t be posting at all).

For this week I had established four goals: Complete Week 4 of the One Hundred Pushups Challenge, run Tuesday night when I was staying over for work, run in Boston and replace 4 meals throughout the week with protein shakes.

I am happy to say that I have completed #1 and #2 and I will complete #4 a little later this morning. I’ve packed my heart rate monitor, running shoes and gym clothes for Boston so I am on pace for achieving that goal as well. That’s a good week! Writing down my specific goals for the week has really helped.

In regards to the protein shakes, while I am planning to have one for breakfast this morning I have found that I prefer to use them as meal replacements for dinner rather than breakfast and going forward after today that is how I plan to use them exclusively. For me they don’t give me quite the energy I need in the morning to get through to lunch without being hungry in the same way they can get me to bedtime at night. In addition part of the benefit of having the shakes for dinner is that the satisfy the sweet tooth in me that wants to have some sort of a dessert - and I don’t have those same sort of feelings in the morning.

In addition to my run on Tuesday (which was 3.48 miles) I also put in a 2.19 mile run yesterday. I have not done any strength training beyond the pushups, however.

The challenge this weekend is going to be staying away from a tendency to overeat while vacationing. If I can manage that effectively it will be a great week.

Goal setting is very smart. Many people fail to plan and hence fail.

Hope Boston was enjoyable.

Hi John!
Regarding the roasted peppers…this was my first time trying it too. It was crunchy & added a nice taste. Next time I’m going to chop it up because I couldn’t roll up the tortilla. And add a bit of avocado, too. Yum :)
You’re doing really well with the running, eh? Good going!
Are the shakes enough to keep you satisfied?
