My #HolidaySweat Goals

Happy Monday and Day 2 of the #HolidaySweat Challenge!

What's that sweaty challenge all about? The #HolidaySweat Challenge involves tracking your minutes of exercise and your fruit and veggie intake each day by logging them at fitapproach.com/holidaysweat.

Set goals, stay motivated and encourage others throughout the holiday season!

TODAY'S PROMPT: What's your minutes goal this week? How will you get there?!


My #HolidaySweat GOAL(s)

Each week, I am shooting for at least 250 minutes of exercise plus 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies. Fitting in the fruits and veggie servings is more difficult for me than the exercise. Yes, I'm a "freggies" slacker. This challenge will be good for me AND my family!


The HOW

Fitting in exercise with my two little ones at home sometimes feels like a juggling act but making the time to exercise is worth it! I do my best to stay flexible with my schedule, get creative with the strength training and manage my time wisely. So much of my days are weather- and child-dependent!

My usual week of exercise in non-marathon-training mode looks something like this:

Monday: 30-45 minute easy run with the stroller
Tuesday: 30-34 minute hill or speed intervals on treadmill
Wednesday: 20 minutes strength training
Thursday: 30-45 minute tempo run on treadmill or with stroller
Friday: 20 minutes strength training
Saturday: 60-minute "long run"
Sunday: Rest

My focus is to enjoy the workouts and rest/stretch MORE. Marathon training starts in January and I want to avoid burn out by pushing too hard now!

As for the fruit and veggie goal, I will be extra motivated to sneak fruit and/or veggies into EVERY meal and snack. I love spinach and it is easy to throw in almost any meal.

Join the #holidaysweat challenge by logging your minutes/freggies and sharing the daily prompts! Here are the prompts for this week:
