Day 15 - getting ready to travel

Monday, January 21, 2013

We're leaving Wednesday for 10 days, which I didn't consider when I signed up for this jumpstart. I'm taking my laptop, so should be able to keep up, but we'll be spending a lot of time in the car. Will have to plan some computer and exercise time every day. Those 10 minute videos are going to be a godsend.

1) Did you get at least 7 hours of sleep last night? emoticon
2) Exercise at least 10 minutes a day emoticon emoticon 51 minutes total, included two jumpstart videos
3) Nothing to eat after 8 p.m. emoticon emoticon

Got some good rest, but I was way up on the scales this morning, just as I expected. Lesson: don't let yourself get so hungry that your judgment and will power wanes, and have things in your house for quick meals.

Plans changed. Husband has some more work to do on his last project, which we have to take care of tomorrow. He calls me his Executive Assistant and pays me well, so his jobs are something we do together, though he does the "field work" himself. It's the first time ever in our marriage we've had the same work goals, and it's a real luxury.

The challenge to fitness is that when we ARE working, things get pretty intense, and I sit too long and lean toward quick emoticon instead of healthy emoticon .

Day 14 -

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Peaceful day today. Went 300 calories over my limit [Positive take on this one? I TRACKED IT!!!]. A dessert was a planned treat, the over-fatty dinner was not. And no time tonight to do a long cardio routine. I'll still do my 10 minute jumpstart video, though. At the end of my second week, I'm already feeling the benefits.

1) Did you get at least 7 hours of sleep last night? emoticon
2) Exercise at least 10 minutes a day emoticon emoticon Jumpstart video + a 9 minute cardio extra; 20 minutes on elliptical.
3) Nothing to eat after 8 p.m. emoticon emoticon

Ended up doing 386 calories of exercise, according to the elliptical machine and SP calculations. I think the elliptical's are overstated, though. I'll have a gain tomorrow.

    You're really doing great! Good job on meeting your goals.

My free time only comes after the rest of the family is in bed. That's why I stay up so late, too.

Keep up the good work!

Good rest probably directly related to the 5 hour night before it. Working on balancing my sleep habits.

52 minutes exercise; Walking w/Leslie and the Jumpstart video. Since I'm in week 2, I'm repeating the small workout and love that it's discernibly easier.

Thanks to the cheerleaders who come and give me an "Atta Girl."

Day 11

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Yesterday's feel good: The day's exercise for January Jumpstart included standing on one leg and doing various things. Last time I had something like it, I couldn't keep my balance. Yesterday: a piece of cake.

I found an old Weight Watcher record, and I weighed 20 lbs. heavier than I do now.... yet I've never felt fatter than I do right now. Trying to wrap my mind about whether or not I was simply more fit then, or that my age has caused a shape change that I DO NOT LIKE!!!!!! AAAGGGHHHHH!!!!

2) Exercise at least 10 minutes a day emoticon 20 min. on elliptical
3) Nothing to eat after 8 p.m. emoticon

Got woken up early this morning (shortly after 6 a.m.) and couldn't go back to sleep. I really love getting up early in the day, but the last few years and the late-night habits I've developed don't help me in the mornings. When you don't have a job, or kids in school, you can sleep as late as you want to, but I'm actually by desire an early riser, so when I *do* get up early... I usually stay up. This is going to take a while to shake out into a better habit, I think. Last night: 5 hours.
