Finally thinking about goals! hah

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Here it is, almost February and I"m NOW thinking about goals and such. I started a new job this month and I have not even remotely had energy to do much working out. I've hiked twice and worked out twice, that's it! I think now that my body is getting more regulated with this whole getting up super duper early thing, maybe i'll find the energy to actually do a work out! My main problem lately has been , I've been exhausted when i get up, when i get home and this past week i haven't been feeling my best, so i've been going to bed very early. My idea is to actually work out RIGHT when I get home or off from work. The longer i wait to workout after work, the more tired I become.

I"ve been having bad junk food issues lately too. I have a total weakness for Doritos and those are such a Trigger food! My work is across the street from a 7-11 and I keep going there and getting the small bag of doritos most days. And I was bad the past week and picked up caramel twix! I still have been having hankering for caramel!

I ran today! I forgot how much I enjoy it and how much of a stress reliever it has been in my past. There's a couple 5Ks coming up, so i'm thinking I"ll sign up for those and actually use that as a goal to aim for. I did make small goals to at least do 25 jumping jacks every day.

So Got these thoughts out for now. I will narrow down and reword my goals and post them! And even have some races set out. I already have one in mind! But that one is not until November! Valley of Fire, Here i come ;)

    Doritos do it for me too! Can't even go near them....so, one suggestion if you're up for it, bring a snack to work, and stay out of the 7-11! Maybe a little bit of nuts and dried fruit, or a luna bar (they have some really good flavors, and a bit better than the Twix for nutrition...)

Good luck!

Accountabilty

This is more for me than it is for anyone else! I figured maybe I should start blogging and keeping track of my thoughts, disappointments, and ideas. Maybe it will help keep me motivated and maybe i'll actually lose weight better. So, If i keep track of myself in a blog, then maybe I will for sure keep myself accountable for my actions! I am happy I came to Spark People, as a way to track everything. Especially since I cannot afford to go back to Weight Watchers.

I am still mentally a WeightWatcher! I still think in terms of Points for food when I'm picking up things to eat. I miss my leader, as he is the most Awesome-est guy EVER! And I still check off in my head my daily requirements (5 fruits/veggies, 8 waters, 2 health fats, etc!)

I do know I need to eat more veggies, even fruit. I do get about 3 in at least, but I need to hit that minimum of 5! I wanted to try going Gluten free, but situation may not allow for that right now. I think my dad should try Gluten-free too, to help with his tummy. SO Goal: More Veggies, less crap! haha. I'm at least trying to not eat processes foods as much. I"m cooking a lot for my parents, and at least I pick good foods.

I am starting to run again! That's good for me, but i'm slow! And Sparkpeople is mean to me, saying my pace is "walking". hahaha. Funny, i feel like i'm running! haha. I know I don't run fast, but come on! haha. I need to get my wiifit connected too! I miss playing with that! It was a bit of a workout. Maybe not as hard as doing a Jillian Michael's work out but still fun! I miss Yoga! I was going to Bikkram Yoga for a couple months this fall, but I haven't had the money to go back. PLUS my yoga mat was destroyed! But I do have as pare, just no money to go! One of the instructors actually reminds me of my Weight Watcher leader I had for years! So, If i had Matt and John, Then I would stay motivated! I was happy with Yoga because i really was gradually improving my poses with every visit! Right now, i can't even do the forward fold pose, as my muscles are so tight. I wonder if they are tight because I'm running and the lack of yoga! I do have a couple of Yoga DVDs, but I just benefited far more from the classes, especially the Bikkram. (I hate heat too! but I managed to live through the torture and LOVE the way i felt afterwards! It's worth the torture! hahaha)

Anyways. As you can see: I miss Bikkram Yoga, i love to run, and I need to eat more veggies! I do tend to ramble, but figure maybe this blog will be a good place to ramble and get mythoughts out and keep myself on track!

Thanks to anyone who actually reads this! Thanks to myself for actually doing something about my thoughts and force myself to be accountable!

P.S. - I Have an interview tomorrow. I Hope it goes well! I need good energy and a way to make me feel AWESOME! hahaha. That way I can nail the interview. emoticon

    I get really stiff and sore when I run, (and any other cardio as well) so I started doing yoga (w/ DVD's) on a regular basis and it's helping a lot. It's not the same as class, but you have the DVD, so give it a try! You can always start up classes when you're in a position to do that, but until then do what you can.

    I do yoga (and by do I mean try to) once a week because I do feel very tight from running (and SP calls it walking too). Depending on how fast you are (I'm at 15min/mile) you might want to sign up for a 5K in Feb to keep you motivated. I have signed up for the "freeze your buns off" its a 10week 5K program we do a 5K biweekly my first one is in Jan I hope to do it under 45 min but my goal is under an hour and for my last one in march I hope to get down between 30-40min. Good luck and welcome again!
