Day 153 Accountability

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Wednesday --

Happy Summer Solstice! It was a hot day today - 95* and 14 degrees above the average. I had my weight training class tonight. Gratefully, our teacher let us do the aerobic portion indoors, in air conditioning, but I was still sweating bullets! Burned 462 calories.

emoticon1 - Exercise - 30 minutes walk/jog; 45 minutes weight training; 5 minutes stretching.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1,511.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 6 hours. Spark curfew - 10:30pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 2 fruit, 5 veggies.


June 2012 accountability goals --
1 - Exercise at least 30 minutes per day. Per the book, "Younger Next Year," I am going to shoot for 6 days a week of exercise - 2 days of weight training (I'm taking a weight training class) and 4 days of aerobic exercise, mostly biking and swimming.
2 - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1700 per day. Goal weight is 145 pounds by end of June, so cutting back on calories this month.
3 - Sleep 6+ hours per night. Stop Sparking by 10pm. The number of hours that I sleep is directly related to how late I am Sparking/Facebooking. I've been having a hard time making curfew the last few months. I'm cutting it back to 10pm this month. If I can keep the internet curfew discipline, my sleep will fall in line.
4 - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.

Day 152 Accountability

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Tuesday --

Harry's appointment with the surgeon was postponed today. He was itching to drive, so he drove over to my house tonight. He hasn't driven in 2.5 weeks and said it felt weird! He's feeling much better. He took all his steri-strips off his incision. He asked me if he looked like Frankenstein! I said, "Maybe a little bit." It looks a lot better without the steri-strips on it. They drew attention to the incision. He'll be healed before long.

emoticon1 - Exercise - unplanned rest day. Went to my dad's for dinner with my sister and Harry, then watched the basketball game with Harry.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1,592.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 6 hours. Spark curfew - 9pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 2 fruit, 4 veggies.

    emoticonAwesome that Harry is doing better.
Did they tell him vitamin E to speed the healing? My mother is always shoving that stuff at us. I ignored her like all stubborn, bratty daughters do...I think it would've helped witht he stretching after kidlets. I don't know if it's the same for guys though, how well it works.
145 by the end of June...YOU ROCK. You always motivate me with your example.

Day 150 Accountability

Sunday --

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. We had a wonderful day with my day. All 8 of my siblings and most of my nieces and nephews were at Dad's for brunch. I ate too much, though. I have my work cut out for me this week. Here's my Daddy -


emoticon1 - Exercise - planned rest day.
emoticon2 - Calories - 2,140. It was a buffet brunch at Dad's. I don't do well at buffets. The sweets table always calls me.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 6.5 hours plus a 1 hour nap with Harry this afternoon. I have to go back to work tomorrow. I'm going to miss these afternoon naps with my Sweetie! Spark curfew - 10pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 5 veggies. Does carrot cake count as a veggie? If so, then make that 6 veggies!

    Great picture of your Dad. Buffets are my downfall as well. Even just a little of everything is too much. But it is Fathers Day.

Day 149 Accountability

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Saturday --

It was in the 90's and humid today. We are desparatly in need of rain. It's lightning and thundering now. I hope it produces rain, and not just a light/sound show!

I got in 0.38 miles of swim laps today in 25 minutes. I have a couple of months to keep improving. The triathlon has a 1/2 mile race. It's going to take some hard work and perseverence on the swim part.


emoticon1 - Exercise - 25 minutes lap/tri training.
emoticon2 - Calories - 2,035. Dessert at Dad's at lunch, and then again with Harry at dinner.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 5.5 hours plus a 2 hour nap with Harry this afternoon. Spark curfew - 11pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 2 fruit, 6 veggies.

    Great work on the swimming Nancy! I raced at Pleasant Prairie, and I remember the swim well. It looks different all in one line rather that 30 pool lengths stacked up. You will be great, and I'm so excited that you are going for it. Create your plan and stick with it. How do you like your new tri suit??

    You are doing great! We need rain too; I was digging to set plants yesterday and went down 12" , bone dry all the way! This was in an area I ran the hose on for an hour on Thursday; it's so dry, watering is not helping. Even with watering if we don't get rain soon my gardens will suffer. "Feels" like rain today, but so often it's been going around us! Be well!
BTW, sometimes I actually do eat dessert first; or "instead of".

    Nancy when you are 80 ( as per the book ) you are going to be a little dynamo running biking swimming just never stopping because of all the stuff you do today. Way to go.
