Weekly Roundup

in All Posts

One way I maintain healthy habits with exercise is that I choose to take a macro view of my workouts.  What does this mean?  This means that instead of thinking, “Dammit, I didn’t workout today… Now I feel guilty for skipping the gym…,” I can look at the entire week as a whole and say, “Hey, I’ve worked out three times this week; I’m awesome!” 


We’ve been trained to think of exercise in 24-hour intervals, but the truth is that it’s your overall efforts that count!  Megan did a Weekly Run Down of her workouts last week, and I liked the idea so much I thought I’d copy her. 🙂


  • Monday:  I swam 1,240 yards
  • Tuesday: 60-minute yoga
  • Wednesday: I swam for 30 minutes in a little hotel pool
  • Thursday: Rest day
  • Friday: I swam 1,100 yards
  • Saturday: I swam 850 yards and went on a slow 2-mile walk
  • Sunday: I went kayaking (upper body, hollar!)


All in all, a very good workout week!  I’m really getting into swimming since I’m temporarily on a running hiatus due to my troublesome knee.  My knee hasn’t hurt since Thursday, which is a good sign, especially considering Sunday’s walk.


I’ve also been great about acupuncture!  I’ve gotten several sessions at the clinic since last Monday. 


Since my schedule has been so different than what I’m used to (running and yoga, 4 – 5 days a week), I’ve been thinking a lot about my current goals.  My goals right now are:


  • Swim three days a week
  • Make at least one swim a drill (with sprints and whatnot… I’ll blog more about this later)
  • Yoga two days a week


I hope that by being really, really nice to my knee, I can run with my girls in the Girls on the 5K on May 7.  Please let me be healed by then!  :(  I would be so sad if I had to stand on the sidelines while they experienced their first 5K.


Onwards to… Eats, delicious eats!


Breakfast was mindblowing:


Quiche Cornbread is an awesome breakfast alternative, and it doesn’t even have to be that time-consuming… I made the cornbread layer last night while cooking dinner.  This morning, I combined spinach, six eggs, almond milk, salt, and pepper and poured the mix over the bread, re-baking for another 25 minutes.  I did some chores and breakfast was ready when I was done!


I worked in the wee hours of the morning and went to hot yoga around 8:00.  Came home, showered and changed, and headed to the clinic for a few hours of work.  Snacked on a banana.


And here’s lunch!  Also a very simple meal, but so delicious.


We heated up Trader Joe’s Masala burgers and smothered them in Mmm sauce. Mmmm!


The sauce really does taste good on everything.


Do you take a macro view of your workouts?  Does it help you stay in track or do you need to think in 24-hour blocks to stay motivated?



  • Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) April 18, 2011, 1:48 pm

    I think that we are so hard on ourselves, when in reality we need to be happy with any step towards a healthier life (whether its a big or small step!).

    I think taking a snapshot of what you’re doing on a weekly basis is a great idea.

    At home I put stickers on my calendar everytime I workout for 30 minutes or more. It’s really motivating when I see lots of stickers… and at the end of the month I can count up how many days out of the month I was active! It sounds silly but it makes such a difference!

    I hope that your knee will heal up in time for the 5km!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 1:50 pm

      That doesn’t sound silly – it sounds super awesome!

    • kristin point April 18, 2011, 8:24 pm

      omg i do this too haha! everytime i workout i put a smiley face sticker on my calendar. it’s crazy that a simple thing like a sticker makes me feel so accomplished!

      i look at my workouts weekly and am really satisfied with the sticker method for keeping track of my workouts. i’m a teacher and this works with kids too 😉

      • Melissa @ Running with Needles April 19, 2011, 6:46 pm

        I do the same thing! I put a star on my calendar for everyday I work out. It’s great to look back and see them, especially no days I’m feeling down about not working out.

  • Lindsay April 18, 2011, 1:49 pm

    My husband and I started an incentives program (http://cookveganlover.com/2011/04/01/how-do-you-stay-active-march-update-plans-for-april/) to keep us on track for working out. We have monthly goals of days and hours and if we achieve our goals than we receive $50 to use on whatever we want. To keep myself on track I check in every Friday on my blog http://cookveganlover.com/2011/04/15/fitness-friday-staying-active-update/

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin April 18, 2011, 1:51 pm

    I love doing the macro look at workouts. This month I started a spread sheet to keep track of my workouts since I’m normally pretty bad at consistently working out if I’m not training for something. It’s been really great to see it from a higher level so I don’t have to feel guilty on rest days, and it’s making me more consistent with cross training and strength training!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg April 18, 2011, 1:52 pm

    I think taking a macro view is a great idea — although for now I need to just make sure I’m following my marathon training plan and anything in addition to that is a bonus!

    The cornbread breakfast sounds so good – I love cornbread!

  • Kacy April 18, 2011, 1:52 pm

    I definitely try to keep the overall picture in mind when it comes to working out, and I never feel guilty for a rest day – they’re just as important as the workout days!

  • Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing April 18, 2011, 1:52 pm

    Dude, kayaking? You are so hardcore 😉 I kind of keep in mind what I have done through the week as a whole, but it’s also important for me to celebrate/stay on track with my daily workouts.

  • Kara April 18, 2011, 1:53 pm

    I think it’s good to think of weeks rather than days. I always have a “floating rest day” for when the baby’s schedule just won’t permit a workout (or if I don’t get to sleep due to the baby’s teething). That way I don’t feel bad about missing a workout, I just shift everything. My permanent rest day is the day before my long run, but I think everyone should have a “floating rest day” too!

  • McKella April 18, 2011, 1:53 pm

    I’ve never thought of taking a macro view of my workouts. I think it would help make me feel better if I skip a few days, but I prefer to take it a day at a time, because I feel best if I get some exercise every day, even if it’s just a walk to the grocery store.

  • Verna April 18, 2011, 1:53 pm

    That sauce looks SOOOOO good! Stupid nut allergies, I can’t try anything good! ; )

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 1:59 pm

      I think you could make it without the almonds and it wouldn’t make THAT big of difference – maybe add ground flax?

      • Verna April 18, 2011, 2:00 pm

        Ohhh! Good idea, I’ll try it, thanks!

      • Verna April 18, 2011, 2:00 pm

        Ohhh! Good idea, I’ll try it, thanks!

    • Laura April 18, 2011, 4:59 pm

      Fellow tree nut allergy gal here! I saw someone post a comment about this issue on Peas and Thank You and “Mama Pea” suggested subbing sunflower seeds!

  • Stacey @ Being Stacey April 18, 2011, 1:53 pm

    I always try to take a macro view of my workouts. If I miss one day it doesn’t matter because it’s just one day. As long as I’m active over the long run then I’m happy with it.

  • Zo April 18, 2011, 1:55 pm

    I do tend to think of the 24-hour blocks, probably because I work out in the morning…so it’s something I check off my daily list.
    However, when I’m out of my routine (like when I’m on vacation), I take a more macro view, where I think in terms of how much walking I did when I was out sightseeing.

  • Victoria (District Chocoholic) April 18, 2011, 1:57 pm

    SWIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMING! Love seeing so much of that there. Hit me up for drill ideas if you need any :).

  • Cait @ Beyond Bananas April 18, 2011, 1:57 pm

    Great idea about logging work outs and looking at it through the week as a whole instead of individual days!
    I want to try to start doing Yoga again. I was so steady at getting to a class at least once a week. A year ago. I think it is time again!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey April 18, 2011, 1:58 pm

    Yowzers! What time did you have to get up to work today? Your’e amazing.

    I like looking at working out as a macro view too – I need to start putting it in writing so I feel better about everything!

  • Nessa @ Island Style Running April 18, 2011, 2:00 pm

    I like to set weekly goals for myself, and take each workout one day at a time.

    I notice that when I don’t set goals for myself (like last week) I don’t accomplish much.

    This week, however, I set myself up for success and blogged about my goals for the week!

  • Amanda April 18, 2011, 2:10 pm

    For me, it’s definitely healthier to take a macro view of my workouts. I tend to feel guilt over skipping a day, but if I look at the week as a whole and see that I’ve been active 5 days, it really puts it into perspective. I like to look at the week ahead, see when I have plans that would make working out difficult, and pencil in time elsewhere. In other news, I MUST make that sauce!

  • Ashley (The Vegetable Life) April 18, 2011, 2:13 pm

    I really love that you have a macro view of workouts, I think I should try and adopt this way of thinking because I am stuck on the 24-hour interval cycle and when I skip a day I get really down on myself…. I need to reprioritize!!!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine April 18, 2011, 2:14 pm

    I work out most days of the week, but I think that taking the weekly view is really helpful to overcoming feelings of exercise guilt. It used to be really hard for me to take a day off, but now on my rest days I think of all the awesome workouts I’ve completed over the course of the week and realize that my body deserves some R&R!

  • Kelly April 18, 2011, 2:14 pm

    I self-admittedly do not look at my workouts that way. I take the 24 hour approach…but honestly this sounds much healthier.

  • Jen April 18, 2011, 2:15 pm

    I’ve been swimming a lot more too, since I work at the athletic complex at my university (academic mentoring for undergrad student athletes) and finally have free access to a pool. I have a question for all you more experienced swimmers; I often get crippling foot cramps when I’m swimming. I’ve read that a lack of potassium can cause cramps, so I’ve been trying to up my potassium intake (banana and yogurt smooothies, I’m happy!), and stretching a lot before I get in the pool, but the cramps still pop up and force me out of the water and limping to the locker room. My toes cross over each other and get stuck in that position until I massage them enough to relax. What else can I do to stop the foot cramps?

    I should also mention that I am not an experienced/graceful swimmer. I’m a runner first, and my form in the water is pretty awkward, so could the cramps be caused by my poor swimming form?

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:56 pm

      Interesting problem. Do you think it could be this issue? http://www.swim-city.com/library.php3?id=119

      I am so sorry you are having trouble!

      You should watch these videos, too! http://www.totalimmersion.net/

      • Jen April 18, 2011, 9:11 pm

        Thanks for the links! I think I’m probably a very tense swimmer and that the cramps are coming from awkward movements. I’ll have my boyfriend come with me next time I swim and see if I’m doing anything weird with my feet/ankles.

  • Lucy @ The Sweet Touch April 18, 2011, 2:15 pm

    That breakfast looks delicious!

    Great way to sneak in a veggie too:)

  • Christine @ Burning It Off April 18, 2011, 2:17 pm

    I think it’s awesome how you’ve managed to find new ways to stay fit while your knee heals. Keep it up!!

  • Jen April 18, 2011, 2:20 pm

    I bought a dry erase calendar over the weekend and planned my workouts for the next two weeks. I write down my calorie burn and try to beat it every day. It’s a game, but I love it!
    Also, those veggie burgers are one of my favorites!

  • Johanna B April 18, 2011, 2:23 pm

    I do the macro thing (although I’ve never called it that). I think it’s the big picture that counts. I do what I can today and over time it adds up to a lot.

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit April 18, 2011, 2:26 pm

    I do try to look at my exercise habits as a big picture, rather than worrying about missing a workout here and there or only being able to fit in four workouts on certain weeks. I know I’m IN the habit already, so I don’t see myself falling off the bandwagon completely! Life’s too short to worry about one missed workout 🙂

  • val @lotsofdishes April 18, 2011, 2:33 pm

    I think this is a good way to look at eating too… if you have a day where you eat nachos and then a piece of cake or something… life isn’t over if you look at the week before that day. good idea!

  • Baking 'n' Books April 18, 2011, 2:35 pm

    Do you plan your breakfasts the night before? How do you “know” what you’ll want? 😉

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:54 pm

      Yea, I plan them ahead usually for the blog. I just eat whatever I planned 🙂

  • Miranda @ working mom works out April 18, 2011, 2:37 pm

    I don’t always take a macro view. I probably should. I hope you can run your 5k in May.

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me April 18, 2011, 2:45 pm

    I do that every week. It’s important because you want to make sure you’re being healthy, not over-doing it etc. Plus if I make it to the gym 4 times a week I feel fantastic. It’s good enough for me! 🙂

  • Kiran @ KiranTarun.com April 18, 2011, 2:47 pm

    I like your macro view idea on work out. It surely relives some stress of pondering how much I’ve achieved my weekly goals 🙂

  • Dana April 18, 2011, 2:52 pm

    I agree with you on the macro outlook! That’s exactly what I do too 🙂 I also know that when I miss a workout, I don’t need to beat myself up about it…my body deserves the unscheduled rest day anyway!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife April 18, 2011, 2:55 pm

    I do the 24-hour thing. I like working out daily (Except for my 1 rest day) but I do believe it is good to take an overall view and see what areas you are lacking and where you can improve. I am going to get back into swimming-I am determined b/c I am doing another tri. I was once a competitive swimmer, so I guess I burnt out back then?! 😉

  • Leah @ Why Deprive? April 18, 2011, 2:57 pm

    I think after struggling with an eating disorder, and exercising obsessively, I cut myself a lot of slack in that department now. I want exercise to be fun, and something I WANT to do. I have no issues with skipping a day, and always look at the entire week and think “wow, thats pretty good”.

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:53 pm

      I think exercise should be fun, too! If it’s not, what’s the point?

  • Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope April 18, 2011, 3:07 pm

    I’m more of a day-to-day person with my exercise, but I think it’s a personal choice and you should do what works for you! The macro idea sounds perfect for you! 🙂

  • chelsea April 18, 2011, 3:14 pm

    I think doing a weekly round up is a great idea. I really do kick myself when I skip a workout, but when I look at a week as a whole I actually kick butt!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) April 18, 2011, 3:19 pm

    I think it always helps to look at your workouts in a different perspective. I was too tired today to do anything vigorous, but getting up and just moving motivated me for a busy day. I love the idea of a macro view of your workouts. Your eats look great too! Perfect fuel for the day!

  • Lori Lynn April 18, 2011, 3:28 pm

    That’s a really good outlook to have, and one that I need to have! I belonged to a Y where I used to live and swam a lot, but now I have a free fitness room in my apt complex and I just have a hard time paying for a gym membership just for a pool. I do miss being able to swim though, and have thought about doing it anyway!

  • Megan@Dirty Dishes Daily April 18, 2011, 3:30 pm

    I really try to take a macro view of my workout week. I have a tendency to beat myself up if I miss a workout so this helps me see the whole picture

  • TheHungeredOne@MovingandMunching April 18, 2011, 3:33 pm

    It is really an amazing feeling to look back on a week and think “wow, I did all of that?”. It really puts a perspective on just how hard you are working, and you forget all about those “lazy days” where maybe you didn’t work out much or ate some not-so-great food.

  • Jenn April 18, 2011, 3:49 pm

    I think we are hard on ourselves for having a rest day of both exercise and healthy eating. It seems as though a day of rest is viewed as a “lazy day”. I used to think if I ate poorly for a day, I someone failed. But through recovery of an eating disorder, I learned diet and exercise are not black and white, all or nothing. Like you mentioned, looking over a period of a week, can put reality back in it’s place! Some days, it’s okay to eat more than the day before or less than. My body is complex and doesn’t like to conform to rigid rules, for each day it’s needs based on many factors vary.

    I pray for a speedy and healthy recovery so you can run the first 5k with the girls! I also am involved with GOTR and love it! So exciting to meet others involved with GOTR across the US : )

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:53 pm

      Rest days are important, too! Your muscles need the chance to recover.

  • Rachael April 18, 2011, 4:14 pm

    I have recently started to take a macro view of my workouts to keep me motivated. I put together a spreadsheet that I print out weekly and tape next to my mirror. I track cardio, strength, and/or other physical activity as well as number of steps per day (I wear a pedometer) and, because I have a weight loss goal, I also weigh myself every day I am at the gym doing conventional cardio/strength. It has worked so far and keeps me more motivated than I have been in the past and also enables me to keep track of weekly goals like total number of steps.

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:52 pm

      Awesome. Way to go, Rachel!

  • olivewineandfood April 18, 2011, 4:15 pm

    i’ve never tried TJ’s masala burgers but those look pretty darn good and so does that quiche cornbread!

  • Lauren April 18, 2011, 4:27 pm

    It’s definitely more fun to look at the macro and weekly/monthly view of exercise! It makes me feel less guilty for having a rest day or 2 if I see how many miles/hours I’ve put in over the past few weeks. I love the sense of accomplishment when I see my monthly training!

  • Katherine: Unemployed April 18, 2011, 4:32 pm

    do you have any tips for making swimming a little less of an ordeal? I feel like every time I swim, I need a huge bag with a million things and then I have chlorine all over me and goggle marks down my face

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:52 pm

      Hahah I think it’s just a mental thing… Look at it as fun to gear up instead of being a chore.

      • Katherine: Unemployed April 19, 2011, 5:46 am

        that’s a good tip- going to the bathroom in a one piece is really like doing the macarena 😉

  • Allison @ Happy Tales April 18, 2011, 4:47 pm

    I think a macro view is oh-so healthy. I try to do that myself! In fact, I totally skipped my last long-run of marathon training this past weekend because I had other important things to do (like, celebrate!…and recover from said celebrating!).

  • gabriella @ embracement April 18, 2011, 4:58 pm

    Swimming is such an amazing workout too! All that work is going to pay off and I’m sure even help your running when you start again. I set weekly goals for the amount I want to workout, but training for an event helps me with that as well. If I weren’t, I agree, I tend to look at the overall picture instead of the individual days.

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) April 18, 2011, 5:01 pm

    I often do a recap of my workouts over the course of the past week. It keeps me accountable on a daily basis because I know each day’s run is important to accomplish my weekly goal!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape April 18, 2011, 5:04 pm

    Quiche cornbread? Omg, I want to make this right now!!! Looks amazing!!

  • Jamie aka "Sometimes Healthy" Girl April 18, 2011, 5:30 pm

    What an interesting question! I WOULD LIKE to think in week blocks but I end up thinking in 6-24 hour blocks…in other words, I am bad at planning ahead of time. I’d like to get better at this 🙂

  • Stephanie April 18, 2011, 5:42 pm

    The pics of your acupunturist cracked me up! I’m not sure I’ll ever be brave enough to whip out the camera in public. Swimming’s the best exercise overall…great way to rest from an injury while still taking care of your body!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:51 pm

      That’s the Husband! 🙂 He doesn’t mind.

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats April 18, 2011, 5:45 pm

    I have such exercise guilt, so I like the macro view as well. Exercise guilt is so interesting to me. Is it because we think we need to have the “perfect” workout schedule? I’m trying to get over that and accept what I can do/am doing in the present. That’s why I love yoga!

    I think planning ahead also helps me to look at it in the macro view (plus keeps me accountable) so that instead of saying “I didn’t work out every day, I suck”, I can do what you said and say “Hey, I worked out 3 times and feel awesome about that.”

  • kyndra April 18, 2011, 5:46 pm

    i definitely take a macro view. i train 6 days a week, 1-3 times a day and i look at the hours and distance i put in over the course of the week. it feels a lot more badass to think “i biked 100mi!” or “i swam 6000 yards!” than to think “crap, i missed one of my workouts on tuesday”.

    i also don’t beat myself up for missing a workout or taking an unscheduled whole day off, because i know i only do that when i’m really tired and not properly recovered. i used to have a really hard time with rest days and i just felt like i was being lazy, but i’ve completely transformed the way i look at them. the training effect (getting stronger!) occurs during rest, not while you’re working out. so if you’re bagged, it’s smarter to skip or reschedule that workout so that you can come back fully recovered and hit it hard next time, as opposed to struggling through and not getting a quality workout. i now seriously consider rest days to be a form of training in and of itself!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:51 pm

      You swim 6000 yards a week? You are my hero.

  • Dee April 18, 2011, 5:50 pm

    I agree about the macro approach, whole-heartedly. Instead of guilt, this kind of view helps me be a realist and a problem-solver of whatever workout issue I’m having, as well as (like you said) realizing I’m often doing better than I realize. I love tracking!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:50 pm

      I love tracking too. I love charts 🙂

  • Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food April 18, 2011, 6:02 pm

    That quiche cornbread looks amazing and delicious!

    I tend to look at my workouts and training by week and then in the grand scheme of a training plan.

    Looks like you’re making great strides in your training! 🙂

  • megan @ the oatmeal diaries April 18, 2011, 6:09 pm

    I have trouble taking a “macro view” but I KNOW that’s what matters! It’s so important to remember that and not focus too much on the small picture (like one day or even two days). I’ve been wanting to make your quiche cornbread forever by the way!!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) April 18, 2011, 6:28 pm

    I think an overall approach is the way to go! It is so easy to focus on the missed workouts – when we should really be focusing on the worked out workouts! lol

  • Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good April 18, 2011, 6:49 pm

    Yes and no. When it comes to running, I totally take the macro view. I typically run three days per week, however they best fit into my schedule. For other workouts, I have been setting goals month by month. This month, I’ve tried to do some strength training everyday. I occasionally miss a day, and that’s life. I think it’s going well overall.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin April 18, 2011, 7:00 pm

    I know it’s the best way to look at things, but I have trouble taking a macro view sometimes. I get too restless on days when I’m not active!

  • Paige @Running Around Normal April 18, 2011, 7:15 pm

    I totally made the Mmm sauce today. And yes, I can imagine it DOES go well on anything!
    Hope you get to run with the girls!!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:50 pm

      Yay I’m glad you liked it, Paige!

  • Lauren April 18, 2011, 7:49 pm

    I wish I could see exercise on a more macro view but I sadly fall into the whole micro sense when it comes to working out. It makes perfect sense to judge your efforts on a whole and not by the details because the results will only occur in a macro sense and not overnight.

  • Jill April 18, 2011, 8:10 pm

    I’ve gotten better about not sweating missing a workout since I was injured last year (foot). I also now do a lot more cross-training. That injury was a blessing in disguise.

    And funny coincidence, I made your corn bread quiche for the first time last night for dinner. It was delish!

    • Caitlin April 18, 2011, 8:49 pm

      Sometimes injuries can really focus you!

  • kate April 18, 2011, 8:25 pm

    Love the idea of the weekly round up! It motivates me to look at my workouts in a 24 hour block…but this looks like a great idea for when I start to feel guilty or depressed if I have a “bad” week with my workouts due to stress/time/ect…It’s hard not to get down on myself during these times but hopefully a weekly roundup type thought process will help!!

  • amy the aussie April 19, 2011, 12:21 am

    So jealous of your banana! Bananas in australia cost $15 a kg at the moment!!!

  • Khushboo April 19, 2011, 1:33 am

    I like this post a lot! I used to think about in 24-hour increments but personally, having a macro view of my workouts gives me much more peace of mind. Take Sunday for example, I planned a run but was feeling exhausted. Rather than unnecessarily push myself, I skipped it for the day and went to the cinema instead. Whereas in the past I would have felt like guilty, I applauded myself for the 5 other awesome workouts I completed over the week. Result: my run on Monday morning was the best I’ve had in ages!

    Like you, I’ve started swimming and doing yoga more regularly and it definitely has helped with my running/cardio! When you are back running, I am sure you will find that your fitness levels aren’t too affected because of your current schedule.

    I have a hal and half type of view o my workouts. I like to know that I did my morning workout no matter what, mainly because it makes me manage stress more easily in that day.

    On the other hand, when it comes to vacations, I look at it in a macro angle. Vacations are a treat, an escape rom regular life, including meals, exercice or sleeping program. It doesn t last for ever so it’s ok.

    I do moderate intensity workouts in my own home so when I don t feel like it, I just do 25 minutes of whatever ( bike, lunges and suats or abs work) and I try to be more active in that day: walk an extra mile,take the stairs, cleaning the room or go for a longer walk.

    Love TJ’s Masala burgers, so tasty! I need to make that mmm sauce, sounds delish. My roommates are always yelling at me to “do less”. Well, working out seems to be one thing I’ve been doing less of this semester. Even with the free gym, the time just never presents itself to squeeze in a workout. I guess that’s what you get working 17 hours a week as a full-time student in Chemical Engineering…

    My problem is always that if I don’t work out I can’t seem to fall asleep that night! So if I don’t fit it in I start to dread how long it’s going to take to get to bed. Wrapping my head around this mental hurdle is definitely one of my goals!

    It is nice to see the WHOLE week of workouts instead of just one day! I think if i took a look at my workouts from a macro view I would feel less guilty about taking days off..
