My 12-Week Plan for Success!

Friday, April 27, 2012

My 12-Week Plan for Success includes the following goals:

SPECIFIC GOAL - Weight from 163 to 145 - down 18 lbs.

MEASURABLE GOAL: 18 lbs. (1/3 of my overall weight loss)

ATTAINABLE GOAL - 1.5 lbs a week

REALISTIC GOAL - Reduce food intake by 300 calories a day (from 1500 to 1200); increase exercise to 40 minutes daily to burn 400 calories = Total: 7 days at 1200 calories intake + 400 calories burned in 6 days exercise....4,500 calories = 1.5 pounds a week gone!

TRACKABLE GOAL - Keeping a careful eye on what I eat with Sparkpeople's Nutrition Tracker and doing a fitness video I found that is exactly 40 minutes long, I believe I can do this!

Some helps might be:
1) getting a friend to oversee my nutrition tracker
2) exercising the first part of the day to get it done right away
3) blogging my progress

24/7 Gym - Week FIVE - Still going strong!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

JUST realized that the 24/7 Gym provided a weekly template. I thought I had to post everything. Although there have been no recent blogs about my gym activity, I've been consistent with the Gym nonetheless. It was one thing I purposed to do if nothing else. There have been days I've had to make up some options, but so far, we're current! One thing I'm noticing? I'm starting to REALLY enjoy it! I never thought the day would come when I would look forward to exercising so much!

Week #5
Wednesday: 24/7 Gym Options 1,2 & 3 Complete! Participated in JAM Wednesday!

    Good for you! I'm still streaking, but I rarely visit the gym outside of our JAM day. I do like it when I'm housebound and I need to do SOMETHING to stay on the streak.

Good for you, Kristine!!

    You know, I was going to do the 24/7 Gym every day and I never got it going except on Jamming days! I think I'm going to follow your lead! You're doing great!
