Not a whole lot to say. I seem to have lost my "spark." I will get it back, I know. A healthy lifestyle takes dedication and consistency. I must work on it and stop being lazy and using winter blahs as an excuse.
This weekend was a little ridiculous. Yesterday's lunch was - ready?- a greasy burger, greasy fries and a milkshake. Calories? No idea. Probably more than I need for an entire day or even 2. Last week I barely worked out because of the snow. I could have found a way to exercise at home by popping in a DVD, but I'll be honest: When little one was napping, I was sitting on my butt on the computer.
On Saturday I did finally get to the gym. They launched a new release of combat. It was so fun and intense! Great workout! Oh yeah, my HRM needs a new battery so for the foreseeable future I do not have the capability of tracking the calories I burn during my workouts! Also annoying.
So, Sparkfriends, I am setting a few mini goals for myself this week:
1. Less time on my computer and iPhone. They are seriously taking over my life and I don't like that. I can come here to track my food/exercise and check in really quick with blogs, teams etc. But I do NOT need to check facebook 10x a day. Really. I am not going to completely turn everything off, but I think an hour a day max is a reasonable goal. Is anyone else out there kind of addicted to their phones, FB, etc.? Sometimes I long for the days before cell phones. I don't know. That is another blog topic I guess.
2. Track all my meals and measure portions. Seriously, why why why is this so hard? I used to do it all the time with no problems.
3. A workout every day (other than walking). If it snows or something and I can't get to the gym, a DVD it is, even if it is just a 10 minute workout.
There it is. I am putting it out there to help me stay accountable! I will report back how I do on Friday!
