Get up and Go

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Okay so mentally I'm ready to get this year started off right. Yesterday I was within all of my daily food recommendations and actually drank more than the daily recommendation of water, which believe me was a miracle. I was 1 minute short of my 30 minute a day goal for cardio but that is because my interval training routine for yesterday, or Week 2 day 1 of the C25K was only 29 minutes long. Okay so why am I sitting here on the computer blogging? I should be checking out my new fitness game on the XBox Kinect or doing the strength training exercises Spark has set up for me today. This is exactly what has always stopped me and kept me from success. I know what I need to do but I have to actually get up and do it. Okay seriously time to stop this and get moving. Tune in later to see if I was actually successful today or am I a still a person that's all talk and no action! emoticon


Let's Give This Thing a Try

Monday, January 03, 2011

Okay its a new year and I am finally ready to get myself to my goal weight. I know the problems I have 1) I don't drink enough water, 2) I don't exercise enough, 3) I don't eat right. Okay so what to do about this. Today I decided that since I am totally addicted to soda that I have to drink a 16.9 oz bottle of water before I can have a soda. The results for today. 70.7 ounces and 2 sodas and 1 chai tea latte. I'm pretty pleased with that. As far as the exercise goes a week before Thanksgiving I quit smoking. I know awesome right?!?! I mean I've been smoking for over 20 years and just decided to quit. Yes I did use the patch but really what matter is quitting. So far I'm going strong and have no desire to smoke. So anyway the Monday after Thanksgiving I started doing the C25K program or the couch to 5K. This is an interval program that is supposed to take you from sitting around to running a 5K in 9 weeks. I went through 3 1/2 weeks and my knees were in so much pain that I couldn't move. I decided it was my shoes and took the week off of Christmas to let my knees heal and get running shoes as a gift. So hear we are the new year. I'm on to week 2 of the C25K that I started over after Christmas. I'm earning my soda with water and as for my last fault I am working on eating right. Hopefully with this blog as my journal, my drinking more water and less soda, and the C25K I'll reach my weight and health goals. Happy New Year everyone!!! emoticon
