Week Five

Well, back on the wagon!  Last week I did pretty good.  Still not as awesome as I had hoped and dreamed but I'll take what I can get at this point.  I'm finding it extreamly difficult to track my food and excersize even though I know it is good for me.  I feel like I've been eating pretty good.  I've been eating more fruits.  I still need to improve on the veggie intake.  I guess I didn't realize how full I get when I eat everything I'm supposed to.  I don't have any room for junk food!

Week Four

I definately fell off the wagon last week but it's right back up this week!  Last week I did not work out once.  Yeah, I know, it's pretty bad when I can't even workout during a fitness challenge but you know that excuse "I'm so busy".  It actually went right along with the tips

This week I'm going to do a LOT better.  I promise.  I'm going to bring my lunch to work and workout at least 4 times... that's my goal.  I think once hockey is over I'll have more time and energy to workout after work.

Week Three

I did really pretty poorly this week for what my goals are.  This is where I'm running into problems when I've tried to do a regular workout program before too!  For example, I live in Morgan so I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to get my butt out of bed that early in the morning to work out.  Then, this week I think there was one night that I got home before 8pm.  Needless to say, I only got 2 workouts in this week. :(

But, it's a new week and I'm going to get back on track.  I still did pretty good on bringing lunch and eating breakfast and I'm finding it's saving me a bunch of money!  We were talking at work and saying that we should do what smokers try to do when they quit smoking;  put $5 away every time we bring lunch instead of eating out!  Man, I'd be a rich woman then!

This week is another busy week.  Away hockey games Monday and Tuesday, a get-together on Thursday, and friends coming to town over the weekend.  So, this week's challenge will be the same as last and hopefully I can do better this week!!

Week Two

Well, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would say I did about a 7 this week.  I achieved most of my goals except the three cardio workouts.  I did two strength workouts and two cardio workouts.  But I'm sore and it feels great!!  I can feel an improvement already! 

On Friday I ran into Polly at the fitness center and she helped me layout a weight-lifting plan.  She helped me with proper form and helped me develop a total body workout.  It includes both free weights and machines.  I've been really bad at journaling (keeping track of my workouts and food intake) so I asked Polly if I could just leave my sheet at the RACC and that seems to be working really well.  At least then I don't have to worry about forgeting it! 

I'm ready for a new week and to stay on track!

Week One

Well, I guess I'm about as unhealthy as I thought I was.  I found the assessment to be really interesting.  I know a lot of people don't want to share that kind of information but I think I need to so I can be held accountable!  Below is my assessment.  If you haven't ever seen one before (like myself) it's very informative.  It does a good job of explaining things in lame terms as well.  I have a lot of goals that I need to work on over these six weeks!  Now that the extreme over indulging is done, I can get started.  
        My goals for this week are:
            Bring lunch to work.
            Eat three meals a day and two snacks.
            Do two strength training workouts.
            Do three cardio workouts.
That sounds a little over ambitious for my tastes but it's the first week so maybe I can get a jumpstart!
