Bought new goggles and a new bathing suit this week! Used the goggles yesterday... oh my lord, worth every penny. Soooo nice to have eyesight in the pool! Only issue is that I think I wore them a little too tight and I have a bruised eyesocket. hah. Excited to try out the new suit tonight!
Swimming has been great, especially considering that my knee hurts hurts hurts still :( I just have to watch pushing off of the tlipturns - the impact and then sudden straightening of my leg makes it worse.
Anyhoo- working on tracking my food better, and preparing for long days of seeing clients back to back when I don't have time to really sit and eat.
and that's me!

Hello there Sparkpeople world,
So it's January 9th, and as of yesterday I started week 2 of Game On with my family, and the SP january challenge.
Week 1 I was full of gung-ho, and was operating purely on that, I think. I played basketball with my husband, sister, and her boyfriend on day 2 and hurt my knee reallllly bad. That put a damper on things - I took the next day off of exercise to rest it, and then have been trying to find ways to exercise without hurting it worse. I did a water aerobics class once, and did a lot of workout videos online. I did a bunch of SP ones, of course, and then also found this youtube channel called Blogilates I think - a woman named Cassey Ho films herself doing the MOST INSANE PILATES WORKOUTS EVER, and she does it with a huge smile and being all perky the whole time.
Food wise I ate at Subway (veggie sandwhiches) a few times and other than that, have only eaten food from home. I've been doing a lot of onion/carrot/spinach/egg substitute in the morning, a lot of weight watchers string cheese, crackers, grapes, carrots and laughing cow for snacks, and drinking 12 glasses of water a day.
I lost weight this week, but not a lot - just about 1.5 pounds.
This week my plan is to keep doing what I've been doing AND - workout a little harder as my knee lets me (Monday/Wednesday nights doing water aerobics, SP videos daily,and lap swimming in between) and to track my food.
Things I can do to help myself with my goals: buy new goggles, eat more fruit and vegetables every day
Things I was proud of myself for doing this week: in addition to the habits I was trying to form, I managed to go out to eat at a BREWERY no less, with a bunch of friends, and I split a dry burger with someone, and had a side of carrots, and did not drink. I ate it slowly, and drank a lottttt of water.
Okie dokie - time to get going with my day!

my mom, dad, husband, two sisters and sister's boyfriend have all decided to play "Game On" for the next month. We've split into two teams (guys vs the ladies) and each person earns points based on their actions that day. You get points for healthy eating, drinking water, exercise, kicking one bad habit and introducing a good habit, to name a few. At the end of the month, the points are tallied, the winners are announced, and the prizes are received. Today was day one, and we are doin it! Tomorrow I do more, harder, sweatier exercise type things :)

Today is day 12 of my ten-minutes-of-exercise-a-day streak. I am super-de-duperly pleased with myself. Every morning I wake up - excited to figure out which exercise I am going to do that day. There have been plenty of days where I could only fit in ten minutes - but on others have done an hour. I've been rewarding myself with happy faced stickers on my calendar, and it's so freaking awesome to have day after day of solid stickers!!!
Other little successes... I have been doing laundry everytime I have a load of dirty clothes, in order to make sure there are no mountains, I have been doing dishes every night, so no crazy mess, I have not had any caffeine for 12 days, I have been eating predominately vegetarian, I have been drinking all my water, and so far I have survived the first week of school!
I don't want to jinx myself - the ONLY one of those goals I am actively trying to meet is 10 minutes of exercise a day. The other successes just seem to build up when I do one thing right.
so - yeehaw! Here's to keep on keepin' on!
