Monday: AM took Chewie for a walk 28mins 261 cals 50% fat hrm- 169 max 139 avg
After doing SPARK Bootcamp video and SPARK Pilates hips & Thighs video (I was waiting for it to get light outside!) 126 cals 60% fat hrm 135 max 112 avg
PM went to the gym with Liz & Linda (running, bike and working legs) 1hour 34mins 782 cals 50% fat hrm 179 max 131 avg
Curiosity got the better of me again and I decided to wear my heart rate monitor to work at the Dementia club for the day so that I could compare it to working at the bank!!! - so for all of those as curious as me:
The Bank 8am - 7pm 1,441 cals 60% fat 146 max 77 avg
The Dementia Club 8am - 7pm 1,852 cals 60% fat 153 max 82 avg
Goal: As with last week this worked out amazingly well! Chewie got her walk, I got in strength all before work; then I caught up on my soaps and with my friends in the evening! -I have arranged to do the same again tomorrow! (as in Mon 9th Nov!)
Tuesday: AM spinning class (Yolande was missing again (instructor) but Katrina did it and she's great -sings along to the songs! lol!) 52 minutes 476 cals 45% fat hrm- 170 max 137 avg
I was still EXHAUSTED, the eyelids were closing as I rode!
Goal: I am going to arrange for a PM workout for tuesday 10th!
Wedneday: AM went to the gym with Liz, this time doing the Treadclimber and working on the Chest 50minutes, 396 cals 50% fat 165 max 127 avg
Goal: The planned workouts for strength seem to be working, I'm not all over the place! Keep this up!!!
Thursday: AM spinning (Andy was back, Woohoo! He was apparantly injured! Oh no!) 54 mins 494 cals 45% fat hrm- 173 max 140 avg
Thoughts: Chewie didn't get a walk :-( Pooor poooor puppy :-(
Friday: AM circuits ( Ian was instructor again) I did a little bit extra after the class too! What a Veteran! 1 hour 11 mins 651 cals 45% hrm -186 max 138 avg
Took Chewie for a walk/ run (she gave naughtiness on this walk!) after dropping the car off at the garage (needed a new timing belt! yikes!) 26 mins 264 cals 45% fat hrm- 177 max 144 avg
Goal: Keep up with Circuits at least until the end of the year. Its TOUGH but brings results!
Saturday: Well I had to get my car back somehow! Me and Chewie ran down to get it! 19 mins 203 cals 40% fat hrm -181 max 150 avg Then I did the SPARK 10 minute crunchless core video and SPARK 15 mins Abs video (wow they kicked my butt!) 25 mins 168 cals 60% fat hrm -143 max 118 avg
Goal: These planned strength sessions mean that I am doing my whole body without missing bits out! Keep with the planning!
Sunday (day of rest): Walk with Chewie and Stephen 43mins 147 cals 60% fat hrm- 132 max 90 avg (Chewie was soooo well behaved, didn't even try to go to any other dogs today, pleasantly surprised!)
Goal: Remember my day of rest, not to over do it! A stroll on a sunday is enough for me!
Foodwise: I had quite a few nights out, but on the whole either made healthy decisions or amped up the exercise to counter it! Sunday at the in-laws involved a fair bit of overeating and breaking my own snacking promises but hey, it gives me something to work on! We can't always be good! ;-)
Goal: snacking at the in-laws!!!! Stop it! Lol!
Still need to give Yoga another try! -still haven't done yet, there is a new yoga class on at the gym but it is on a wednesday at 11:30 am! Who's available for that! I'll keep my eye on it though!
Limit hidden salt intake -Just not happening, I try, but it doesnt work!
Increase and be more consistent with strength training -I'm planning the exercises that I do and it seems to be working (I think I'm gonna need to be one of those gym guys who have the little note pad with everything jotted down! Eeek!!!
Plan exercise for the week -Yep! This works really well so I'm gonna give it another try!
To do: I pledge to do a SPARK abs video once a week (12 minute pilates abs; 15 mins abs; or 9 mins abs bootcamp) -Done! Did the bootcamp, pilates thighs, crunchless core and 15 mins abs! Woohoo!
Xmas goal: To be 200lbs
End of October goal: 212lbs (a loss of 6lbs) -I didnt make this goal (2lbs shy) but I'll make a mid month goal for November 10th of 210lbs (a 4 lbs loss) to keep me on track. -Still heading towards this one!
Oh yeah! One of the gym instructors asked if I wanted to do the Edinburgh marathon! WOW! I said no, so she offerred me the Marathon relay team and I said that I would think about it! I'm pondering as I speak! Will I be at least able to do a 10k?!?!?!
