Weekly Wrap 78 Wrapping Up January
Welcome to the Weekly Wrap 78 Wrapping up January, with just a couple more days January will be in the history books. My husband and I will be packing up our RV and camping gear and will head home later today. We’ve been here for 14 days and other than being in the smack middle of the storms last weekend, I’ve loved every minute.
Before I get into Weekly Wrap 78 Wrapping up January I want to first… THANK YOU for joining us for the Weekly Wrap. This link up is to keep us all accountable in our active life. Training for a race? Just trying to keep active?? Recapping a fun weekend? We want to support you in whatever you do! You may link up your posts with us, Holly from HoHo Runs and myself here at MissSippiPiddlin each week.

When I’m not running or traveling, this IS my happy place
Weekly Wrap 78 Wrapping up January
I felt pretty good about this week in activity. Seems like I’ve finally gotten back into a routine. I ended up running 4 days this week and got in both strength training sessions and you’ll see further down how I faired with my goals so far.
My Weekly Workout Summary, goes something like this:
Beast mode back and biceps circuit with a little #mannequinchallenge thrown in. Thanks ladies @megereev and @tammyyoung911 . . . #MoveMoreFitness #MoveMoreFitnessAmbassador #MMFitFam #MoveMore #DoMore #noexcuses @movemorefitness @happymoveyear #Misssippipiddlin #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #nuun #nuunambassador #inspiringwomenrunners #runmississippi #mississippilife @mississippilife #mississippirunner #gomiss #instarunner #running #flexitpink #FitnessGoals @fabletics #fabletics #soretodaystrongtomorrow #strongisthenewsexy #girlswholift #FitFunFashion @Fitandflirty_closet #WorkOutWednesday
I hope you didn’t miss my Instagram Video we did of our Wednesday Workout. My trainer, Tammy and I often workout together on leg day because I can hang with her and we stick to about the same weights. Now when it comes to my upper body I’m not anywhere near her but we still have fun together. This week our friend Megan joined us for a pretty badass back and biceps routine. Tammy knows every so often I get her to take pictures to use for my #NeverMissAMonday or #WorkoutWednesday posts. I don’t even get any eye-rolls anymore either. (Wendy, how does Becky feel about you taking pictures?)
So we’re taking some shots and another girl comes in and offers to take some pictures then it was her idea to shoot the video which was received well! It was hard holding still with the weights especially since we were almost done with our workout. (Next time we need to do this BEFORE our actual work)
Since this is the last #WeeklyWrap of January I wanted to do a quick check in with the progress on my goals. For a detailed listing, you can see my Goals for 2017 here.
Fitness and Running
Run – 850 yearly goal and fingers crossed with two more days of January I’ll be right on track.
Run More Races – Only 2 so far 18 is what I did last year so I’ll call it on track.
Run a New State – Not yet, but I’ve got two new ones on the calendar 😉
Mini-Challenges – Well I hit the ground running with the pushups and also the plank challenge, but then I fizzled out. I’ll be re-grouping to add in something this week.
Post / Link up More – Totally fell off the wagon on this! Ugggh, I was doing good but added year-end stuff at work had to take precedence over time to blog. I had hoped to have my Louisiana Race Weekend recap up by now and it has not happened.
Connect More – Instagram has been my social media of choice lately. I’ve enjoyed throwing around encouragement and high fives on it.
Good for the Soul – Since we’ve been at the campground I’ve missed getting up early with my daughter walking or running. We’ve been cooking more and she has joined us most nights but it doesn’t take the place of one on one mother-daughter time. Hopefully, we can get back in that routine.
Planning – I have done better with “planning” in general. I keep a running hand-written to-do list at work and list each of my tasks for the week as they are needed and check off as I go. We also have done much better about planning meals and eating better this past week.
Speaking of meals:
We finally broke down and got us a Pressure Cooker. This has been a game changer for us! So far we’ve cooked a roast, chili and by far the best meal was vegetable soup! Our biggest challenge is the lack of time. While simple planning will elevate this, you also have to make time to plan. This cooker cut not only prep time but also clean up time in half because it’s all in one pot.
I can’t wait to see what we try in it this upcoming week.
My next race weekend is coming up and we’ll be in New Orleans for the Rock n Roll Series. I’ve once again persuaded Mr. Sippi into doing the 5k with me on Saturday and then on Sunday while I run my half, he will run a 10k! It will be the longest race he’s ever entered and I’m super proud of him.
Two other races I’ve added to the calendar are both in April, Rock n Roll Raleigh NC and a bucket list race for me, Kentucky Derby Half in Louisville, KY! Not that I’m trying for every state but this will be two new ones for me as well. Will any of you be at either of these races?
Going to wrap up this Weekly Wrap 78 Wrapping up January post right here. I’ve got clothes to wash and some cleaning to do before we pack up and head home.
Do you have a Pressure Cooker? How about any meals for me to try?
Ever run the RnR Raleigh or Kentucky Derby races? Anything you’d like to share with me?
Are you following me?
