I turned 30 this week! And that’s about all I accomplished. It was a busy week at work, plus there was RAIN! And coldness! And family obligations! I could make a million excuses, but whatever. Back at it next week.
Here’s the summary…
Wednesday: Soul Cycle — one goal accomplished! Thank goodness for indoor cycling to protect me from the rain and cold
Thursday: Rest, and instead of working out, bake biscuits (my best batch yet! I start with this White Lily recipe and then add a little more fat to help with moisture and flavor)
Friday: Reformer pilates, plus a re-do of Thanksgiving with the other side of the family, including my mom’s giant, delicious, buttery snowflake cookies
Saturday: Horseback riding… holy calves… and inner thighs too. You know the phrase “it’s like riding a bike?”… that doesn’t apply to horseback riding
Sunday: Five mile run (shortened from the 17-miler I had planned… or was it 15 miles?.. either way, I didn’t make it)
Goals for This Coming Week:
- 17 mile long run
- Keep drinking tea and packing appropriate lunches (like the farro risotto with butternut squash and kale below! YUM! Similar to this.)
- Make it to SoulCycle at lease once to use another of my classes before they expire
How are y’all adjusting to the cold weather and darkness? Any tricks for staying motivated? Also, what are the best things I have to fear/look forward to about my 30s?!
