Keeping at it

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

Yesterday was a catch-up day - and I managed to get a number of small things done. It was a good day. Trying to stick with the program with unusual schedules has been a challenge. Having to get very creative. Sneaking in an exercise here and there and being very aware of the number of steps. Don't want to looks those streaks!!

Keeping streaks alive - even after the Superbowl

Monday, February 08, 2010

Yesterday I was in a hotel - that was not conducive to a morning workout - and there was a superbowl party. But, how to keep my streaks alive (there was not internet either). I wasn't about to let my streak of doing at least 30 minutes of cardio every day die - just because I couldn't do my excercise of choice. So I did 15 minutes of walking at home techniques and hoped I would be able to fit in a cardio session after the superbowl. And gues what - I did it.

this week will be a challenge as the fitness room opens at 7 am - which means I am going to have to be dedicated to fit in the work out at unusual times. It will be a challenge.


Spent the day on the Train

Sunday, February 07, 2010

I got to do something that I really enjoy - spent the day riding the train from LA to Oakland California. It definitiely is a civilized way to travel. It was very enjoyable and relaxing. Love it - I usally just sit by the window and watch the world go by - which is exactly what I did.

Surprise - I accomplished 500 fitness minutes.

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Yesterday morning did not think I was going to make it - I had set a goal for myself that this month I would do 500 fitness minutes per week. With my work and travel schedule this week did not think I was going to make it - I was close but thought I would fall short. Guess what I managed to fit in a extra workout yesterday and was able to pull it off. Stretch goals are wonderful. Now the challenge will be to do it again next week.

Short term goals - keep us focused.

Reflections on the week

Friday, February 05, 2010

It has been a busy week and I have been play catchup for most of it. Celebrated over the weekend and have been trying make up for it and have been traveling. The week has been pretty good - trying to stick with everything. Looks like I will fall just short of my fitness goals for the week, but have three weeks to catchup for the month. This one was a stretch goal - so am not disappointed - especially since I am not doing the boot camp. I am keeping up with my other goals - so am doing OK.
