July 2012

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Things are pretty much back to normal for me. I am getting ready to start doing yoga again and I've started lifting (light) weights again as well. I think the weights will take a long time for me to build up to where I was before my accident but at least the healing process seems to be going well so I'm just going to do what I can and not complain.

Here are some goals for July:

1. Average 1400ish calories a day for the first 3 weeks of the month (I will be traveling to China for work late July/early August so realistically I know I'm not going to be able to track my food)
2. Work out 15 times before I leave for China
3. Work out whenever I can in China, hopefully they will have a gym in the hotel

That's it! Easy enough right?


June Wrapup

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

These were my goals:

1. Average under 1,400 cal/day - close, I think I hit 1,458 cal/day
2. 1000 fitness minutes - close(ish) - i had 790...can do better!
3. Meal planning for the remainder of the month - closeish again

So, I didn't really meet anything but I am ok with my effort--still feeling healthy, still making good choices, still on track for my weight loss. I tried lifting weights once--I'm way weaker now and I couldn't do too many reps of the lighter weights because of my thumb, but I'm working on it! I also did an Insanity bootcamp with Shaun T which involved lots of floor work like pushups, so that didn't go too bad. I'm optimistic for July!


June 2012

Monday, June 18, 2012

My splint is off! I'm still in physical therapy for my thumb but I'm beyond the point where I can make excuses for it any more because I can do almost everything again (except put weight on it, so no upper body weight training or yoga yet). I've been running a bit and am having to work my way back into it (plus it's HOT outside now!) but I'm seeing improvement so at least I can work towards that in the meantime.

Here are my goals for June:

1. Average under 1,400 cal/day
2. 1000 fitness minutes
3. Meal planning for the remainder of the month

May 2012

Here are my goals this month:

1. Average under 1,400 cal/day.
2. No more than 8 cheat days.
3. 20 cardio workouts
4. 10 strength workouts
5. Meal planning every week.

Update -- I fractured my thumb on May 3, and between my limitations from that (exercise/cooking, etc.) and my mild depression about it all month, I didn't really meet any of that. I didn't track my food, but I guess I did ok on that front, considering I was still losing a bit of weight. However, I'm sure I've also lost some of the muscle I had built up so far during the year so I suspect when I'm cleared to start on weights again I should see my weight go up. But that's fine with me, because I want the muscle :)


April Wrap-up

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I'm back from vacation! Happy May!

1. Average under 1,450 calories/day for the first two weeks - I averaged 1,250!
2. No food tracking for the second two weeks of April - that one was easy :)
3. Got in exactly 20 workouts! Woohoo!
4. Create a meal plan for the first two weeks of the month and stick to it! - I think I did that.
5. HAVE FUN AND RELAX on vacation! Check!

I gained about 5 lbs unfortunately but it's ok. I am ready to jump back on it!
