Day 174 Accountability

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Wednesday -

It was a long day with strength training and golf classes after school. I've been pretty frustrated with the golf class and wanted to quit. After Monday's class, Harry suggested that I needed an attitude adjustment about the class. I changed my attitude tonight, and it's beginning to come a little more naturally. It's going to take a lot of practice. Harry said he'd take me to the driving range this weekend and watch me swing. Wish me luck!

emoticon1 - Exercise - 50 minutes strength training; 90 minutes golf class.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1,678.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 6.5 hours. Spark curfew - 11pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 4 veggies.


July 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. I'm also taking a golf class in July.
2 - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1700 per day. Goal weight is 148 pounds by end of July.
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.
4 - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.

    Good luck with your golf game! I used to play when DH and I were dating, then we got married and moved away from our favorite golf courses.....kids....etc. It all got away from me. I was lousy, but enjoyed it just the same. Hang in there. As long as you don't let your score define your fun, you will be fine!

    Golf frustrates even experienced golfers! Could be that challenge that keeps them coming back for more. Seems people love it or hate it. I wasn't good, but loved it. Still, it took more time than I usually had and it was hard to find a partner that I enjoyed golfing with since I too was a beginner. Give it a chance. One class doesn't make a golfer; it's just a start. The driving range is a good idea. emoticon

    Have fun with golf. I don't like any sport that doesn't have the potential of being full contact. I guess golfing in way does, but, I'd be arrested if I clubbed someone. I know my maturity level. *zilch*

I LOVE your accountability blogs! Thank you.

    LUCK! I just can't get the golf thing. I tried a couple decades ago, but I just can't do it. Too frustrating for me. Hitting that itty bitty ball in a hole from way out there! I'll stick to putt putt. Good luck though. I'm sure hitting balls with Harry this weekend will be fun though. Enjoy! emoticon Go get 'em girl!

    With regard to your marinade, I'm loving everything mango right now. It sounds delish! Harry sounds like an all around great guy. A keeper indeed! I'm done with Body Revolution tonight and am off to bed. Got to get my zzzz's so I can get up at 5 and get the Minneapolis 5K done in the morning. I've got a plan and have to keep on track. I hope you are going to bed shortly, too. Right? Hugs!

Day 171 Accountability & Pre-triathlon Family Run/Swim/Run

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Sunday --


Today, my friend Cheryl and I did the Pleasant Prairie, WI family run/swim/run, so we had kids of all ages involved. I'm surprised at how out of shape the younger people are. Maybe they haven't been training. I completed it in 41:12. Cheryl did it in 38:10. She's a marathon runner, so she blew me away on the runs. But I got in the water after her and was out before her. Then I came home and rode my bike for 12.5 miles. I know, I'm doing the tri backwards and out of order, but at least I'm getting all the elements in. I loved the event today - it was a 1 mile run/0.25 mile swim/1 mile run.

Today's event gave Cheryl and me a preview of the super sprint triathlon that we will do at the same location in August. I didn't sign up for the regular triathlon sprint because I was afraid of the 1/2 mile swim. But, next year, I'll do the 1/2 mile! Just needed some experience under my belt. And yes, we do have the same tri-suit on! They were on sale at REI online. We got a lot of photos taken of us, because we were wearing Danskin tri-suits, and it was a Danskin sponsored event.


emoticon1 - Exercise - 20 minute 1/4 mile swim; 21 minute 2-mile run; 65 minute 12.5-mile bike ride; 5 minute walking cool down.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1,690.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 5.5 hours. Spark curfew - 9pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 6 veggies.

Day 170 Acountability

Saturday, July 07, 2012

Saturday --

Today was a busy day. I started by singing (in the choir) for a funeral, then went grocery shopping, had lunch with dad, processed a couple of my Shaklee customer's orders, got my stuff together for my fun run/swin/run race tomorrow, went to 5pm mass, and had dinner with Harry. I'm going to bed by 9:30 because I have to be up at 4am to drive to Wisconsin for the race.


emoticon1 - Exercise - planned rest day before my fun race.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1,565.
emoticon3 - Sleep - I was in bed for 7.5 hours, but I was excited about the upcoming race, so I couldn't get to sleep for a couple of hours. I probably slept for 5 hours and I took a nap this afternoon. Spark curfew - 9pm.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 6 veggies.
