In Btwn Rounds Plan

Monday, July 21, 2014

I will continue to chat on Team FBI thread

I will plan my meals so that I'll have a better chance of eating well

I will eat a measured breakfast everyday

I will log my food onto SparkPeople

I will get no less than 20 minutes of fitness daily

I will be mindful of everything that passes my lips

I will use all of the tools that I bought that I just HAD to have like - food weight scale, measuring cups, Vitamix, Magic Bullet

I will work earnestly to get 8 glasses of water daily

I will begin to train for my October emoticon

I will use a blank monthly calendar to help me stay on track

I will try my best to earn 50 Spark points every day

I will try and eat 5 Freggie daily

If by chance I falter on any of the above I won't feel defeated and throw in the towel but I will dust myself off and get back on track at the very next opportunity.

We Fall Down - but we get back up again

Monday, May 12, 2014

My Recovery Plan

If and when I slip up (I'm just being realistic) I will not dwell on it. I will not chalk the whole day up as a lost but I will get back on track at the very next eating opportunity. It's better to have a bad meal as oppose to a bad day.

    The secret to success is to get up one more time than you fall down! You are absolutely right - A bad meal does not have to equal a bad day! emoticon

    Sometimes we do accentuate the negative and it's a small part of all the positive things we do. I guess it's the challenge.

My Fitness Test Blog

Monday, May 05, 2014

Okay I felt like I was going to check out on the 3 Minute Step Test. I still haven't recovered. My throat is so sore it feels like an army platoon has marched in my throat. I think I was suppose to count how long it took me to return to my resting heart rate after I finished the Step Test, well as far as I'm concerned I've never returned to a resting heart rate as I'm still struggling to breathe.

I did do 32 push-ups, 43 crunches and a 25 minute mile walk. I did good on the crunches and push-ups but I really have got to work on my walk time. But in my defense the weather just really broke and this was my first walk.

I downloaded the Metronome on my iPhone but I don't know how to work it. I will have no problem getting my 6 hours of sleep tonight as I'm not feeling well after that Step Test.

    Yes #13 is funny but I should have expounded on it more. At night when I'm watching TV and these food commercials come and I watch them I get instantly hungry. Even if I don't have what they're advertising my mind immediately think of something that I might be a good substitute. So I want to use those 2-3 minutes to switch to a music channel and do a mini workout. Even if I don't do the mini workout if I just change the channel that within itself will help. I usually try to DVR most things I want to watch so I can fast forward through the commercials.

Those commercials reeks havoc in my eating at night no matter how good I've been.

    I like your list. I've been working on #11. I really want to do better. Now your #13 is funny! I've gotta check back in with you to see how that is going.

Overall, I know you can do it. Make it happen!
