Winter Wonderland Warriors Update! Week 7

This week's picture:
My motivational picture this week is of my Mom and Aunt Cathy. Aunt Cathy went in for a regular check up and ended up having bypass surgery on Thursday. She is now out of the hospital and doing well. She has a long road of recovery ahead of her. Last Tuesday she stopped by the library with a birthday gift for me...a pink running jacket. Yesterday on the phone she said we would be out walking together soon! Please pray for a speedy recovery for her!

  1. What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals? This was a rough week, because quite a bit of time was spent at the hospital,  but I tried to stay mindful of my goal by keeping my water filled, hitting the gym whenever possible, and focusing on what I needed to get done in order to achieve my weekly goals.
  2. What goal are you doing best on? The bike at the gym is my new love. Getting those miles in is so much fun to me! :)
  3. What goal do you have to push yourself a little more to complete? I am really struggling with the foot mileage goal. With the extra cross training I have been doing finding time for the treadmill has been a challenge (because it bores me lately), but I know as the weather gets warmer and I can get outside this will become easier for me...I just hope I am not too far behind.
  4. We’ve talked about who pushes us to do better with our goals – is there anyone/thing that hinders you? I think I can be my own worst enemy.
  5. Fun Question of the Week: Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have any special plans for the day? *We enjoyed spaghetti (I seldom make this at home because it is a trigger food for me.) and just enjoyed an evening together.


  1. We had spaghetti for Valentine's Day, too! :)

    The weather here has been beautiful since Saturday and looks like it is going to stay that way for the next several days. Hopefully, you will have the same good fortune. :)

  2. It's hard to stick to goals when life starts to get in the way - and you're still doing so well! I totally know what you mean, too, about being your own worst enemy. I'm thinking about planning a related April challenge (once WWW is over) since a lot of other WWW people said the same exact thing.

    I've been biking at the gym a lot lately, too - I just started in January, and between that and running, my legs are getting really toned. No complaints here! :)

  3. It sounds like you're doing all you can during a difficult week, Jess. Keep it up. i think it's a good things to mix up your routine & exercises in order to keep it interesting. I am sooo sick of the treadmill, so I've introduced zumba! Have a great week - your Aunt is in my prayers, XO

  4. hey girl! Thanks for checking on me! I posted a long and probably boring update on my blog. Hope all is well. I will pray for your aunt.

  5. What a motivating picture. Definitely keep her in my prayers!

  6. Hoping your aunt is healing well!!!!
