Here’s last week’s recap and my goals for the upcoming week.

Last week:

  • Fitness
    • After tweaking my back last week, the last thing I wanted to do was make it worse. With the craziest schedule I’ve had in months, I essentially took the week off from training. While it didn’t feel good to not work out as much as I would have liked, I am glad that I’m feeling so much better.
    • The one day I played around in the gym a little bit was really fun! I practiced one-footed box jumps (got up to 30″ on each foot), did some sled pushes and pulls, linked two strict muscle-ups for the first time ever, and did a silly handstand walk sled pull for the first time. Playing and having fun is so important, so I’m really glad I did that! Here’s a video of some of my silliness!
  • Other
    • Plenty of grilled meats for food, protein pancakes for snacks, and salads prepped for the week! Even though I didn’t work out much, nutrition was better. It’s true that failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
    • Did a little more studying for my nutrition certification. As I said above, it was an absolutely insane week, but I at least made some progress.

This week:

  • Back to the regular grind this week, less one-off appointments, which means it should be easier to plan for meals and training.
  • Another full week of training again. My goal is to hit it 5 days this week!
  • Finish a chapter in my nutrition book.
  • Mow the lawn for the first time this year! After some snow tomorrow, it’ll just get warmer for the rest of the week. That makes me happy!

Alright, your turn. What’s going on with all of you?

Pic of the week comes from the Red Rocks Beer Garden. A friend of a friend opened this awesome spot, which is just minutes from Red Rocks Amphitheater. All Colorado beers, wines, and ciders! I’ll definitely be going to before concerts this summer. You should definitely check it out!
