Consistency is Key

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

I *know* this, but I still need to *learn* it. I was up very late this morning downloading music, so I didn't get much sleep. I am so stinking tired! I am sure the way I have been eating hasn't helped at all, but having a more consistent bedtime is probably a better place to start. I'm headed there in a couple minutes. Not yet 9:00 p.m. and I can barely keep my eyes open.

    Sleep is one of the things I can't seem to control I'm beginning to think, it's normal for me to not sleep straight through.. Have a grat day my friend!

    I hope you get a good nights sleep and feel refreshed in the morning. It's amazing how much better we do and feel when we are rested. It's so worth going to sleep early.
Sleep well. emoticon emoticon

    lol...I know how you feel. There are so many times I feel like a toddler, wanting to stamp my feet 'cause "I don't wanna go to bed".

Butt I definitely suffer for it the next day too. Go get yourself some zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's.

    Indeed, seems so simple, but so hard to follow sometimes! Rest up!

I signed up for the 10-day marathon challenge. I'm not sure I'm going to make it. I've taken the first two days off to rest. Of all my goals, this one is the lowest priority. I'm glad I've learned from SparkPeople to listen to my body and keep going rather than charging full steam ahead until I wear myself out and give up entirely. Slow and steady! emoticon

    2.6 a day for 10 days. That is quite a challenge if you hare not really a runner. Slow and steady is right.

21 minutes

Sunday, August 28, 2011

To earn the 1000 Fitness minutes a month trophy for August, I need to average 21 minutes per day for the rest of the month. Totally doable.

Other goals/challenges I have:
*Starting today, walk a virtual marathon over the next 10 days www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
. This is a great preparation for my New Year's Resolution to complete 1000 miles in 2012.
*pre-train for 10K training (starts 9/5/11) while preparing for Saturday's 5K
*pre-train for Fight for Air climb training (starts September)
*don't overdo it emoticon

    I am still trying to be committed enough to get to my 1000 exercise minutes a month. I think that's going to be one of my Sept. goals ;). If I actually get up and walk/run three days a week in addition to working out during lunch and working out over the weekend, I should have no problem getting there!!!

I know you can get there this month :)

    It does seem like crazy busy, but they're spaced out, so I think it'll actually be wicked fun! Good luck! My next 5k is actually in two weeks or so on Sept. 17th. Then the one after will be a Halloween run!!!

    How funny - I think you'd fit right in with my group of friends ... we declared ourselves the 5K Maniacs last year ... and we've garnered a few more members since we 'organized?' - AND, now we've moved into longer events, Triathlons, and pretty much anything we can get involved in!

Nope, you're not crazy, just SUPER energized, and it's AWESOME!

48 minutes

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I need to get in 48 fitness minutes per day for the rest of the month to earn the 1000 minute trophy. Tomorrow needs to be a light day because Saturday is the 5K. I have been squeezing in stairs here and there for just a few minutes at a time and not counting them, but I thought I was a little higher. Still, with the 5K plus the walk there and back, I'll get in lots of time Saturday. I still think I can do it. I tell you what, these stairs really seem to be making me stronger.

Oh, and I found out today that caffeine helps me have so much energy that it helps to run up and down the stairs a few times just to settle down!
