The Weekly Chase #5

Image

The fact that this post wasn’t scheduled to post Monday morning should give you an idea of how my week kind of is going! It’s been insane…all in a good way though.

Last week’s list of goals:

Goal #1: Make sure I get my cross-training and yoga in along with my 3 marathon training runs. I was spot on with my running and cross training. I probably could have used another yoga session though.

Goal #2: Eat clean and eat as plant-based as possible. I did okay with eating clean, but not really with plant-based. I really wanted the meat. But the beer over the weekend …  I earned those carbs.

Goal #3: Wake up early. This is getting more difficult as my schedule demands increase along with my training mileage. I’m all about getting enough sleep right now.

Goal #4: Book, Focus, Build, Consistency. I read. I focused. I built. All on a small forward scale.

This week’s list of goals:

Goal #1: 3 yoga sessions with my 3 training runs. My hips are aching for some yoga….so this is a must.

Goal #2: Eat clean and eat as plant-based as possible. Revisiting this one again to really focus on eating plant-based.

Goal #3: Schedule self-assessments. I’ve been going through a pretty major part of my mental and emotional, heck, even spiritual, journey. To keep the right frame of mind, I find that self-assessing on a daily and even sometimes multiple times throughout the day, I stay right where I need to be to be the best Carin I can be.

Goal #4: Book, Focus, Build, Consistency . Same business goals for the week too. Keeping the same goal helps keep me consistent. We all know consistency is key!

The Weekly Chase #4

Last week’s list of goals:

Goal #1: Make sure I get my cross-training and yoga in along with my 3 marathon training runs. Running was on track. I got 1 cross training workout in and my two yoga classes taught.

Goal #2: Eat clean. I did okay eating clean this last week.

Goal #3: Wake up early. I actually slept in almost everyday. I think my body really needed it.

Goal #4: Book, Focus, Build . I read. I did not focus or build. I won’t beat myself up for not meeting my goal. Just moving forward.

This week’s list of goals:

Goal #1: Make sure I get my cross-training and yoga in along with my 3 marathon training runs. I will get my personal yoga session in as well as 2 cross training sessions.

Goal #2: Eat clean and eat as plant-based as possible. I’ve been lagging a lot lately, and I feel like I’m just heavy. Sometimes giving myself a break from meat can help rejuvenate my body.

Goal #3: Wake up early. Planning on embracing the early despite the now chilly Texas Fall temps in the morning.

Goal #4: Book, Focus, Build, Consistency . My success partner and I set weekly goals as well. Adding onto last week’s goals, it’s “Book, Focus, Build, Consistency”. We’re reading the same book, focusing on what needs to be done, and building our teams….all doing this consistently every day.

The Weekly Chase #3

An entire month has passed since my last weekly chase. Things in my personal life were overwhelming, and I needed to take a step back and focus on them. I feel more settled now, and am ready to continue on with my routine and goals, which includes the awesome Weekly Chase! How have you been? Have you been meeting your goals?

This week’s list of goals:

Goal #1: Make sure I get my cross-training and yoga in along with my 3 marathon training runs. I’ve stayed up with my running, but I let my cross-training slide a bit.

Goal #2: Eat clean. This really isn’t that bad of a problem, but since my mileage is increasing, I’ve been telling myself “I earned” that extra serving or piece of bread or waffle.

Goal #3: Wake up early. Lately, I’ve been waking by 4 a.m. everyday. I’ve been using this hour to sit, think, meditate…sort of mentally refocus and embrace the day before it actually starts.

Goal #4: Book, Focus, Build . My success partner and I set weekly goals as well. This week, it’s “Book, Focus, Build”. We’re reading the same book, focusing on what needs to be done, and building our teams.

The Weekly Chase #2

It’s September! I love new months and new weeks! Something about that clean slate to keep pushing toward what you want. What do you love about September? I hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend as well.

Here’s the Weekly Chase rundown for this week.

Last Week’s Goals:

Goal #1: Stick to my set 3 days of running for my marathon training.  This happened, a little off schedule, but I got it done.

Goal #2: Water. I did REALLY well until about Sunday night, and I started craving a soda….bad.

Goal #3: Routine. We’re pretty much there. I have to tweak a couple of things to pin my schedule down, but we’re golden.

Goal #4: Personal Development. I kept up with my reading and audio, but still working on the mediation thing. I like to do it in the mornings, but I’d have to wake up at 4 a.m. to do that…I need that extra hour until 5 a.m.

Goal #5: Focus intently on my coaching. I stayed focused, but was working on this for about 4 hours a day when I know I only needed two. After some discussion with one of my team leaders, I think I have a plan worked out.

Goal #6: Start journaling again. Missed this goal as well. 

Here’s this week’s list of goals:

Goals:

Goal #1: Stick to my set 3 days of running for my marathon training. I did really well with this last week, so I want to keep this up.

Goal #2: Routine. After talking with one of my team leaders last week about this, I think I have a plan to keep me on routine and productive.

Goal #3: Meditation. 10 minutes a day to center myself

Goal #4: Focus intently on my coaching. This means no distractions and even putting my phone in airplane mode to make things happen.

Goal #5: Journaling. With a couple of important, personal meetings this week and a new composition book, I’m all set to go for journaling.

The Weekly Chase #1

The Weekly Chase is a feature that I learned about from Miss Molly and Road Runner Girl that recaps the previous week and sets goals for the upcoming week. This is perfect for me since I love setting the tone for Mondays and my entire week! I hope you join in with me, read along as I go through my weeks and maybe even begin your own weekly chase! So, here goes…

Last week was all about the last week of summer and trying to practice our school routine as well as the second full week of marathon training. I set some goals to get all my runs in, which I missed one, and get the boys on schedule, which I did.

Today was the first day of school here in Texas, so donned in fresh shorts and tees, my boys started their school years. T, the big one, is the big honcho on the middle school campus as an 8th grader. Cy begins his 1st grade year. I got him lost in his school because I went in the wrong door and all the hallways are sectioned off. Once we made it to his class, I promised I would walk him back in the right way tomorrow so he knows his way. Now that we are starting to get into routine mode, I can begin to work on things that I’ve put on hold for the summer.

Goals:

Goal #1: Stick to my set 3 days of running for my marathon training. To stay injury free and prevent fatigue, I’m testing a 3-day a week training schedule. I cannot miss days as every run is specific. Easy run, speed work, and long run.

Goal #2: Water. I’ve been slacking on water, and I can see the difference in what that extra bottle I’ve been skipping has been doing.

Goal #3: Routine. Establish my class and work routines as the boys settle into their school routines. All work must be done by 2:45 p.m. every day, and I commit to spend from 3-5 p.m. with them for homework, quality time, and fun.

Goal #4: Personal Development. I’ve become big on personal development, but I want to incorporate more than 15 minutes of reading. I plan on adding my meditation back into this hour so I can focus and set my day on the good path I want.

Goal #5: Focus intently on my coaching. It is my full time thing now, and since I want to make this my career for life, I need to set my intentions for my career goals and make them happen.

Goal #6: Start journaling again. I used to keep a journal and just over the last few years, I’ve stopped. Even if it’s just a list to start or 10 minutes of writing, I want to start this up as i work to make my life exactly how I want it.

I hope you enjoyed reading my goals, and I hope you share yours with me to and continue to read through my journey as I chase forward toward my dreams. Comment below so i can encourage you through your weekly goals as well!
