Day 124 Accountability

Monday, May 07, 2012

Sunday --

It poured down rain today, so I took my planned day of rest from exercise. Instead, I exercised my mind trying to figure out my new Smart phone, which is a lot smarter than me! I tried to use the website tutorials, but that got me more confused. When I bought the phone yesterday, my sales rep told me that there were workshops offered at various locations, so I looked up the class list and wouldn't you know, there was a session tonight! So, off I went.

There were 7 people in the workshop, and 4 sales reps to help us. They divided us up by type of phone. The other lady in my group had major issues with her phone, so she couldn't really do anything but watch me. So I pretty much had a private lesson. My teacher, Bill, taught me how to take photos and video and then upload them to Facebook. So, I'm all set now for my storm chasing trip on Friday! I feel much more confident that I won't be screwing stuff up and losing photos. Posting to Spark with the phone is still pretty challenging, so I don't think I'll be doing much of that, but I might try. Heaven knows, I'll be having Spark withdrawal!


emoticon1 - Exercise - Planned day of rest.
emoticon3 - Calories - 1,542.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 8 hours. Spark curfew - 11:30pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 4 veggies.


May 2012 accountability goals --
1 - Exercise at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week. Swimming class is over, so I will concentrate on walking, biking, and the elliptical machine. I may throw in a swim every now and then, but the indoor pool is pretty crowded during open swim.
2 - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1800 per day. Goal weight is 145 pounds by end of June.
3 - Sleep 6+ hours per night. Stop Sparking by 10:30pm. Curfew was very difficult to keep in April, but I need it. I'm combining the two goals, since they are inter-related.
4 - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.

    Can you believe we now need workshops to operate phones?! The same was offered to me when I bought my iphone. At first I thought the rep was joking! I ended up figuring it out by myself, but I hear a lot of people take advantage of those workshops! I cannot wait to see pictures of your storm chasing trip!

I like the eight hours of sleep! You did good! emoticon

    Seems like just yesterday I got my first phone and told the guy I just want to make phone calls sometimes. Apparently there weren't any of those. Now smart phones. I am way too old for this high tech stuff. Storm chasing must be awesome. You have to tell us all about it.

Sushi was good. Not just raw fish like I thought LOL.

Day 123 Accountability

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Saturday --

emoticon1 - Exercise - Planned day of rest, but made up for yesterday's unplanned day of rest by taking a 1 hour bike ride. Burned 650 calories!
emoticon3 - Calories - 2,259. Had a burrito, chips and salsa, and a churro to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 7 hours, but I didn't sleep well. I was excited about the Razr Droid phone that I looked at last night and bought tonight. Spark curfew - midnight, but it's Saturday night! And I was trying to Spark on the Droid. Takes way too long.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 4 veggies.


NEW GOALS FOR MAY (similar to April. It's not broken, so I'm not gonna fix it.)
May 2012 accountability goals --
1 - Exercise at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week. Swimming class is over, so I will concentrate on walking, biking, and the elliptical machine. I may throw in a swim every now and then, but the indoor pool is pretty crowded during open swim.
2 - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1800 per day. Goal weight is 145 pounds by end of June.
3 - Sleep 6+ hours per night. Stop Sparking by 10:30pm. Curfew was very difficult to keep in April, but I need it. I'm combining the two goals, since they are inter-related.
4 - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.

I'm not going to report on the Soul Food daily anymore. Even though I start every morning with scripture, and will continue to do so, it was taking a long time to write the blog when I added that. I need to make the accountability as brief as possible so that I continue to do it while I'm traveling this month.

I really enjoyed the 100 mile bicycle challenge, and will probably continue that in May. But again, it took a long time to look up my mileage and keep the running tally. I'm also going to be gone for 10 days storm chasing, and since I don't own an iPad or Smart phone, I will be out of touch for those 10 days unless I can get computer time at the hotels overnight. So rather than fret about this goal, I am not going to make it an official daily accountability goal in May.

    What a great day! A bike ride that burned off your Cinco de Mayo food, and a new happening phone....WOW! Have fun with that phone. You might be able to do the bare minimum with spark while you are out storm chasing on it. You will probs figure it out quickly. Have a great week!

Day 122 Accountability & Weigh-in

Friday, May 04, 2012

Friday --

Today is weigh-in day, and first Friday of the month is measure-in day. I am down 1 lb. from last week. As you may recall, my struggle with Easter candy and numerous birthday celebrations in April caused me to gain a couple of pounds during the month. I am starting May at the same weight and measurements as I started April. While I wish I were reporting lower numbers, I am grateful that my numbers didn't increase.

emoticon1 - Exercise - Unplanned day of rest, but I will be able to make that up over the weekend, when I don't usully plan exercise.
emoticon3 - Calories - 1,726.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 5 hours. Spark curfew - 1am. My bad.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 2 fruit, 7 veggies.

    6 hours!!! That's pretty good! We had to turn the air conditioner on. Temps in the 90s and heat index close to 100! Not good for sleeping at night. Too hot and too humid here in Kansas. Therefore, I slept like a baby last night. Storms on Sunday should cool temps back to the 70s for next week.

Hope your weekend is good, Nancy! emoticon

    I know what you mean, I have a really hard time keeping my blogs short and to the point. Sometimes I just feel like I have so much to write.
Going storm chasing?! There's a different thing to do! I hope you'll give us an idea of the kind of fun you had!
