LoveHate and Week In Review – 10/7 – 10/12

This is the perfect name for this week in review because I was LAZY and did not workout for the majority of the week.  Yeah not good and I could tell I didn’t workout.  You know how?  I was crabby.  Crabby feeling and crabby acting to many others this past week – NOT GOOD.  When I workout (lift and run) I am much happier.  It gives me wings.  I also found some cool new songs to listen to on iTunes Radio so I downloaded those and they helped to push me through!!  Woooohooo!

Monday – 10/7

Did nothing – lazy bones!

Tuesday – 10/8

Got out there and ran with my pavement warrior sisters.  We hit up about 3.2 miles.  I am slowly but surely getting closer to my 60 mile goal!  I definitely plan to make it this month.


Wednesday – 10/9

Did nothing – LOSER I know.  LOL!

Thursday – 10/10

Was gonna run and then it was raining so I went back to bed.  Yeah not a real excuse since I have a treadmill but I just didn’t want to.

Friday – 10/11

It was still raining on this day but guess what?  I got up and did 2.3 miles on the treadmill.  My NordicTrack is brand new and I love it.  I need to up the ante though b/c the speed was TOO SLOW for my taste.  After running outdoors as much as I have been means the treadmill workouts have to be fast and furious for me to feel like I am getting in a workout.



Saturday – 10/12

My pavement warrior sister dragged me out of bed and took me to Centennial Park in Columbia, MD where we had an awesome run.  I never ran there before, just witnessed my girl’s Iron Girl Triathlon event there this past August but it was AWESOME!  Over 5 miles DONE!


Saturday was also my 11-year anniversary so we hit the town and ate a FANTASTIC dinner at the Capitale Grille.    I thought I was stylin’.IMG_1874


Ya see, it was a Love/Hate week for me.  I did end up picking it up near the end of the week but it would have been better if I were more consistent.  What have you been struggling with when it comes to your workouts lately?

Also, don’t forget – for the month of October we have a new challenge “Your New PR” Challenge using the Strava Cycling or Strava Run app and enter the raffle we have going on by downloading the Strava app and following ME (Diatta Harris) on the app!  Isn’t that easy?  What are you waiting on?  I would like to reach 100 raffle entries (100 followers) to make this an interesting raffle.


Motivating you to Firm, Fit and Fabulous!

    I am the worst when it comes to sticking to goals. Gotta take it just one day at a time I guess! 🙂

    Good for you that you got back in the game! For me I just need to pick myself up and get back on the treadmill every day! It’s been hard to do this week because I’ve been having a migraine headache! I’m looking forward to a better day tomorrow!

      Once you migraine subsides definitely do the treadmill. Running in the morning is like my morning coffee.

      Don’t you just love Wale? I have to do better though – that was too many days without a quality workout.

    I love that you are putting your goals here and tracking them. What a great reflection tool it can be.
