I have a paper copy of my goals with 100 small squares to check off for each day that I accomplish each goal. It is fun to see the boxes being filled in. I am accomplishing something!
Today I sat on the recumbent bike for 60 minutes, or 12 miles, or 300 calories burned.
The thing that makes me the most excited is when I log the miles onto the mileage tracker. As you know I am going on a virtual bike ride across Utah from the North to the South. Yesterday's ride brought me to Ogden.
That was easy, two 32 ounce mugs. One in the morning one in the evening.
967 calories, a little low, but I still feel it is an accomplishment, because I made sure that I had protein every time I ate, and I was not hungry at all.
Not only did I do the minimum, but I got some vacuuming in also. That house looks great.
What to do, what to do? I am busy and I don't have a lot of time. First thing in the morning I checked my facebook account and I learned the daughter of a friend of mine lost a baby yesterday. As I sat on the recumbent bike, the answer came to me. Since I have lost two grandbabies, I would write a small note to my friend and let her know that I am thinking of her. So that was my daily service today.
I am feeling great and motivated to keep going

Today was a busy day so I did the 5k bike ride in 12.2 minutes. I have done this on the busy days for three weeks now and I can visually see and feel my endurance improving
That was easy, I drank one 32 ounce mug in the morning, plus one in the evening. In addition I had drinks during the day.
1267 calories. Nutrition wise I did not make the bes of choices but I had my grandaughter with me, and I am so proud of myself for keeping my calories within range.
I drove my mother to her doctor appoitment, and I spent the afternon with my granddaughter

I have to share one of my Woo Hoo moments. I have really been trying to bicycle every single day. On the days when I have a little more time I am trying to bicycle for 60 minutes. Yes that is one whole hour. That equates to having burned 300 calories and going 12 miles. On the days when my schedule goes crazy I sit on the bike and cycle like crazy for 5k which I can do in about 12.2 minutes
Last Monday I decided that I would start tracking my miles on the days I cycle for an hour. I decided since I live in Utah would do a virtual cycle from one end of the state to another. I would start on the Utah Idaho board and cycle to the Utah Arizona boarder about 400 miles down I-15. Since last Monday I have cycled clear through Box Elder County and I am now in Farr West in Weber county. Amazing.

I am starting a new commitment to myself of doing 100 days of accomplishing 5 daily goals.
My goals will include:
Daily fitness- on days when my schedule is hectic I will sit on my bike and race a 5k trying to beat my previous time. On days when I have more time I will try for a longer ride or walk or both. Either way my goal is for some type of daily fitness
I have a 32 ounce mug. I will fill the mug once in the morning and again in the evening and drink it. Once those two mugs are drunk Wha La, I have drunk my 64 ounces of water for the day. I learned that easy little trick reading secrets for success. Thank you
Stay within calorie range.
My calorie range is 1200 to 1500 calories per day.
I have broken that down to having a 300 calorie breakfast, 300 calorie lunch, 500 calorie dinner and two to three snacks at 100 calories a piece
Sometimes when I have a busy schedule it is hard to keep the housework up. The magic minimum is the minimum you do to keep the house looking presentable- not perfect, but presentable. That includes, making my bed, doing dishes and wiping off counter-topss, pick-up, and swishing and swiping the bathroom
Finally a daily service of some kind of another
To keep myself accountable I am going to come and report back daily on my goals. Knowing that there are some days when I am not always around a computer, I will still keep track of my goals on paper, and report back as often as I can.
Wish me luck I start today
