I am not a blogger or an interesting writer, but I figure there should be one place I write down my goals (wishes) instead of one goal here and one goal there. So here it goes-
I am on Week 4 of the January Jumpstart Challenge and I am doing pretty well. I am not in that great of shape so completing the cardio in this challenge has literally been a challenge - but surprisingly not the biggest challenge. The biggest challenge is with food - tracking it, eating 5 servings of freggies, and eating at LEAST 1200 calories....that's right I consistently eat lower than 1200 calories - how is that you ask, Well I regularly skip breakfast, seldom eat lunch and then eat an 800- 1300 dinner, The January Jumpstart Challenge has helped me with this. I am now tracking my food at least 3 times a week, doing this makes me stop and eat breakfast, eat lunch, and then dinner, It also helps me make healthier choices (sorta more bang for the buck thing).
When I complete this challenge I want to continue to
a) Track food 3 -5 times a week.
b) Cardio 20-40 minutes 5 times a week (Note 20 minute cardio sessions will be at a higher intensity than normal)
c) Strength/Core training 3 - 5 times a week
Join another challenge
Additionally I just joined the Healthier Cooking Challenge. I hope this challenge will help me make healthier choices and take me from absolutely hating the thought of being in the kitchen to if not loving it at least liking it. I also hope to become a better cook. I have actually burnt water and consistently set the fire alarms off when I am cooking....
SO there are my short/long term goals so far for 2012.
Good Luck to everyone out there
