8 Week Battle #9 - Week 2 Update

Friday, July 02, 2010

Ok, this week just flew by but, I am determined to hold myself accountable so, here is a recap of week 2 of this battle! I am loving this battle!

•Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes 5 days per week emoticon
I did a hike, 3 bike rides, 2 boot camps and the SLACKER HALF MARATHON where I got a PB 2:50!
•Drink at least 10 – 8 ounce glasses of water daily emoticon
Done and Done again!
•Stay within calorie and nutrient goals daily emoticon
Still struggling a bit there but, I am working on it – tracking and being conscious of what goes in my mouth!
•Continue to work toward running a 5K – currently on Week 4 emoticon
Did a 20 minute – No Stopping Run – I may not be fast but I am DETERMINED!
•Target to lose 1 pound per week and reach 138 or less by the end of the battle emoticon
Week Two – finally let one pound go to the farm – alone until I send its cousin next week!
•Ride my bike at least one day per week for at least 30 minutes
emoticon 3 bike rides – one to boot camp – did boot camp – rode home (2 rides separated by an hour of boot camp) and a 3rd ride on Thursday!
•Attend Boot Camp twice a week emoticon Absolutely!
•Take a Bikram Yoga class during this 8 Week Battle – something new and challenging emoticon - this is happening in week 3 on Friday!
•Spend 15 minutes per day doing some cleaning and organizing in my apartment
Hmmm, what is my problem here – did get some stuff moved so that the drapery rod can be hung so I can put up drapes – the maintenance guys will hang rod for me next week!
•Spend a minimum of 3 hours weekly submitting job applications for a minimum of 5 applications submitted as required by my unemployment office
YEA, YEA, YEA! Get a job!
Thank you all you amazing WARRIORS who inspire me to reach beyond my comfort zone and push myself to new realities! emoticon This journey is so much easier knowing that you are all here to help me keep focused! emoticon
