Last week's goals:
*Hit the gym 4 days
*Get my running interval from 1 minute to 1m45s
*Increase my time on the Elliptical from 7 minutes to 10 minutes
*Find a strength training routine
*Make it to bed by 9:30pm on work nights
*Cook healthier dinners for my family
I made it to the gym, and even went for a hike today (gym is closed on Sunday).
I didn't increase my running interval, but I did increase my speed for my intervals.
I actually avoided the elliptical this week, it seemed to be in use each time I hit the gym.
I've found a few different strength training routines that I'm working with and I'll see what benefits me the most.
Umm...9:30 bedtime? May not actually happen until I get the kids back in school.
I did cook a bit better for the fam this week, nothing special, but we did try steamed zucchini.
I lost 2 lbs this week, for a total of 7 so far. I've had no problem drinking my water on a consistent basis, just need to watch the weekend junk food trap.
John (my DH) has surgery tomorrow (Monday), so my main priority this week will be him. Of course, as I say that I'm thinking to myself that I don't want to fall in to the "caregiver" trap.
This week's goals:
*Hit the gym on M, T, W, F, S
*Do the mommy tummy workout on M, W, F
*Take the kids for a hike on Sunday
*Attend the Preview Performance for the HS Marching Band on Thursday
*Try spaghetti squash on spaghetti night
Oh, I almost forgot to mention...I'm not tracking my foods on SP because I've found that MyFitnessPal is actually easier to use. I'm able to scan the barcodes and it interacts with my BodyMedia armband. If you're interested in adding me on MFP, feel free. My username is FitStelley.
