June Goals Update

Sunday, July 10, 2011



- implement a daily program / use of my exercise bike. I started this already in May but fairly sporadically. - not going well. Going to ride everyday except Monday in July. Aiming for 40-45 minutes in the morning before breakfast

- Will also swap out sitting on the couch watching tv (which I don't do much anyway) to sitting on the exercise bike watching tv. emoticon Same goes with reading. - going ok. have been much more active in the evenings which I am happy with. That also means i'm getting much more done at home and feeling like i'm reclaiming my time.

- Make an appointment with the podiatrist to check out my foot and see how its progressing and what point i need to get to before i can start running again. emoticon. - scheduled for this Thursday!

- Implement a minimum of 10 minutes of stretching per day. This is focussed towards preventing injury to my foot / feet again from the tightness caused by sitting in an office chair all day! - didn't do this at all!!!

- lose 5kg's in June (it will be a stretch but I want to aim for it anyway. that means i'll need a couple of weeks at a 1.5kg loss instead of a 1kg but i can do that!!) - didn't make this one of course but i did go from 82 down to 78 which is 4 kilos.

  


JUNE GOALS

Friday, June 03, 2011

With the success of my May goals (that I only started halfway through the month) I'll have to work hard to make June's harder and push myself more. Admittedly a lot of May's goals were action steps to get me towards losing more weight as opposed to exercise and diet to do items. Here goes:

- implement a daily program / use of my exercise bike. I started this already in May but fairly sporadically.
- I'm thinking of starting off with 10 minutes in the morning from the 6-10th June, then up to 15 minutes the week after, 20 minutes the week after... I will see what final time i work up to but I think 20 mintues will be plenty. I leave for work at 7am so I don't want to add too much time in the morning. Just enough to give my metabolism and muscles a boost in the morning.
- For the evening I am not sure what would work best. It will need to work around the group training I am currently going to (I did 195 squat exercises of different types last night! talk about sore today!) although I'd like to do even just 10 minutes when i get home after training before hitting the shower as it helps remove the lactic acid build up and tightness in the muscles. More will be posted later once I have thought about it.
- Will also swap out sitting on the couch watching tv (which I don't do much anyway) to sitting on the exercise bike watching tv. emoticon Same goes with reading

- Make an appointment with the podiatrist to check out my foot and see how its progressing and what point i need to get to before i can start running again. emoticon

- Implement a minimum of 10 minutes of stretching per day. This is focussed towards preventing injury to my foot / feet again from the tightness caused by sitting in an office chair all day!

May Goals Update

Thursday, June 02, 2011

May Goals: (updated 24th May)

- join T.O.W.N. (take off weight naturally) - COMPLETED
- join physicalaimz (group training) - COMPLETED
- go on shake diet until packets run out. ~ 10 days worth. only other food to be consumed = veggies, soup, occasional proteins. i figure its a good opportunity to detox and break the cycle of bad food habits. - IN PROGRESS. HAVE TWEEKED THIS TO SUBSTITUTE A BREAKFAST SHAKE WITH A BREAKFAST BAR BECAUSE I HATE MILK IN THE MORNINGS
- hire bike for exercise at home - DELIVERED TODAY!
- once shakes are finished, buy some pre-prepared lite n easy dinners/lunches for disorganised "i have nothing to eat, so i must buy fast food" moments. - WAITING TO COMPLETE THE ABOVE
- attend 2 group classes per week minimum (looking at monday evening and saturday morning at this stage) - HAVE BEEN TWICE THE LAST 2 WEEKS. WILL CONTINUE ON AT TWICE PER WEEK UNTIL AFTER OUR LONG WEEKEND (ENDING 14TH JUNE) AND THEN BUMP IT UP TO 3 TIMES PER WEEK.


RESULTS FROM MAY: 2.1KG'S LOST!!! emoticon

  


Oh dear...

Sunday, May 22, 2011

My goodness I was in a quandary last night! My dear dear other half came home from the supermarket and announced that the 4 pack of chocolate jam doughnuts in the bag was for me because they are my favourite kind. i ate one. emoticon then i was very disappointed in myself.

i have had the 'i'm trying to lose weight and i need your help' talk but i don't think its sinking in. sigh... very difficult situation. i don't want to seem ungrateful for the thoughtfullness in buying someting for me. but its making things harder for me.

i have my second weigh in at T.O.W.N. tomorrow night. Hope i lose something. one of my friends at work is losing weight and is at almost 10kg's this year. i'm very impressed and hope i can do as well. she's much better at the food planning and preparation than i am though. something to work on. emoticon
