A Week Review

Monday, May 19, 2014

Or should I say "weak" review. I accomplished some goals, but hardly made a dent in others. But I am alright with that. At least I made a start towards them. So here is a review of last week's goals.

Pre-trip:
Fitness
1. Go to the pool 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, & Friday) and water walk for 1 hour emoticon

2. Go for a 10 min walk 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday) emoticon I actually did better than this, as I walked on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday!


Nutrition
1. Plan 5/7 days main menus per week emoticon Not so good- no planning.

2. Drink 8 glasses of water a day emoticon Got most of my 8 glasses of liquid on some days, but some of it was sugary drinks - like ice tea. This coming week I will cut out the sugar and focus more on cool refreshing H2O!

3. Eat 5-7 freggies a day emoticon Most days I managed between 3-5, so need to plan more freggies into my days - having a menu plan would certainly help.

Rest
1. Get 7 hours of sleep a night emoticon I averaged 7 hours a night, except for one 6 hr. night.

Organize
1. Tidy up the 3 hot spots in my bedroom (I have already done 2) emoticon Still working around the mess - I am such a procrastinator!!

2. Maintain my hot spots by doing a nightly quick cleanup emoticon but at least I have been maintaining what I have and haven't lost ground or clear space!

3. Make a list of things to do before the trip emoticon

4. Go shopping for things on the list - emoticon no shopping...yet!

5. Make a list of things to pack - emoticon

6. Have suitcase packed by Friday afternoon (May 23) - emoticon Brought my suitcase up out of the basement today

So although I didn't accomplish everything, at least I did something. And I know where I have to pick up the pace for this coming week.

emoticon emoticon Bring it on!!

    Great job on making goals and then working to meet them! We can't always do everything we plan; but, having a plan is half the battle.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. You actually accomplished a fair amount. We also have room for improvement. You've identified those areas and are moving towards them. Great.
I already see you walking the promenade deck everyday on the ship and dipping into that pool regularly (if it's indoors).
Have a successful week.

See you when you get back.

    You *did* do quite well - don't sweat the planning issue.........that kind of work is often tough to get done at times (we *all* have lives outside of the kitchen!)........

Keep up the great work!

    You did accomplish a lot, Jineane! We all procrastinate I think, I know I am definitely guilty of that.
You are going to have such a fun trip, I am so excited for you! You must let us know how your trip went after you get back!

Getting Off The Sidelines

Friday, May 09, 2014

For a long time now I feel like I have been sitting on the sidelines while all my spark friends race on towards their goals. But after reading a blog by my spark friend Fusionfitness3 (Maria) I have been inspired to write out some goals for myself. As I will be leaving for my trip (Alaska cruise) in 15 days, I decided to make goals for the next 2 weeks (pre-trip goals) and for the week of my holiday (trip goals).

Pre-trip:
Fitness
1. Go to the pool 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, & Friday) and water walk for 1 hour
2. Go for a 10 min walk 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday)


Nutrition
1. Plan 5/7 days main menus per week
2. Drink 8 glasses of water a day
3. Eat 5-7 freggies a day

Rest
1. Get 7 hours of sleep a night

Organize
1. Tidy up the 3 hot spots in my bedroom (I have already done 2)
2. Maintain my hot spots by doing a nightly quick cleanup
3. Make a list of things to do before the trip
4. Go shopping for things on the list
5. Make a list of things to pack
6. Have suitcase packed by Friday afternoon (May 23)

On the ship:
Fitness
1. Walk 20 min 2 times every day

Nutrition
1. 8 glasses of water a day
2. 3 meals & 1 snack/day – snacks to be fruit or veggies
3. Eat 7-10 freggies a day
4. No grazing, no seconds

Rest
1. Get 7-8 hours sleep a night

I feel good that I have something to focus on for the next 3 weeks. When I get back from my holiday I will review my goals and make plans for the month of June.
Thanks Maria for providing the motivation. I needed a kick start!

I'm flying down to NC to welcome my 4th grandchild into the world. My dil is having her third and I'll get to spend a week or two (they're flying me back home) with them...can't wait!!!

I really appreciate all the special comments and keeping up with my broken ankle!

Take care and good luck with these goals!!! Come on, Jineane, YOU CAN DO IT!!!! emoticon

    That is an awesome plan!!!! Go you!!!

I like how you call them "hot spots". I have so many of those. The way you break it down makes it seem manageable.

Have a spectacular holiday! emoticon

ABC or An Alphabet Full of Facts About Me

M is for Mom's name: Florence

P is for Phobias: Flying insects like bees and moths.

Q is for Quote you like: “My life is but to serve and annoy – I am very good at the annoy part!!”

R is for Relationship: Single

S is for Siblings: 3 – 2 sisters, one older, one younger, and an older brother who passed away in 2012.

T is for Talent: Making people laugh

U is for Unique trait: Am very intuitive, sometimes I just know things.

V is for vegetable you love: Brussel sprouts

W is for Worst traits: Sometimes I am too guarded and am reluctant to share about myself.

X- is for X-rays you've had: Several – maybe a dozen or so, but have given thousands, if not tens of thousands (I was an X-ray Tech for over 30 years)

Y is for Yummy food you make: Chocolate Fudge No Bake Cookies

Z is for Zodiac sign: Capricorn

So now its YOUR turn! Post this! I want to read more and know more about you!

    Hi Jineane, Great Blog & a good idea. I love reading more about you & it does help me know a little more about you. I haven't posted a blog in over 2 years so my friends would be shocked. Well see as I have to think about this. How is your knee doing these days? Are you glad you had your knee replaced? Are you able to walk and get around well now? Do you use a cane? Sorry to ask so many questions but I've been accused of being the curious type. . .Take Care of Yourself.

Love,

Jill
