One of the main reasons I put up this site was to help keep myself accountable. I figure the best way to do that is to share my successes and my failures. From now on, I will be posting a weekly accountability report of my workouts and dietary shortcomings. I promised to be real about failures with my diet on my about page, and boy did I ever fall short this week. I blame Thanksgiving and the whole lazy holiday weekend mindset. Blaming my lack of will power would be ridiculous. 🙂

Workout Log

Monday = No workout

Tuesday = 6.25 miles (running)

Wednesday = No workout

Thursday = 5 miles (running)

Friday = 5 miles (running)

Saturday = 6.25 miles (elliptical)

Sunday = Rest

November Totals

Running = 44.65 miles

Elliptical = 12.72 miles

Cross Training = I need to cross train

Dietary Shortcomings

  • Thanksgiving dinner (I had at least 10 rolls. I should have gone for the full dozen. Saying I ate a dozen rolls by myself sounds way better than 10) 🙂
  • Bucket of candy at post Thanksgiving movie
  • Top Ramen on Saturday afternoon (no, I still have not outgrown those noodles)
  • A large pizza and an order of breadsticks on Saturday night

As you can see, I still have a long way to go if I am going to hit my goal. To start cleaning up my diet, I am going to make a public announcement right now that I will not consume any pizza next week. Those that know me know that this is a HUGE declaration for me. Pizza and I have a very healthy and loving relationship. In fact, I live by the motto, “every pizza is a personal pizza if you work hard and believe in yourself.” The image below really should be framed and hanging in my dining room.


Goals for next week = 25 miles (running or elliptical), 3 days of core work, NO PIZZA.

I am not sure I can support this no pizza for a week thing… but everything else seems reasonable.

Nothing wrong with the pizza. 🙂

Good luck and I can’t wait to follow along!
