Bouncing Back

Friday, July 29, 2011

I have had a really tough week in terms of my fitness goals...scheduling snafus and travel helped to kick me off the wagon for a few days. However, I did get myself up and around early this morning to get in my Wii workout (and, yes, it was a workout...I did sweat!). I feel more energized today and am enjoying my Friday more than I think I would have otherwise.

My husband and I went for a walk last night (had planned a workout, but cooking and prep for dinner filled up all my time, a bit unexpectedly). Unfortunately, we were only out for 10 minutes before the rain started to fall, so we came back home (I HATE getting rained on...long story!). I still got in a little though, so not a total loss!

I need to start to include the strength training sessions picked for me by SP. I can get in my cardio through various methods, but it's not really any strength training.

So, new goals for me:
-Keep on with the early morning cardio as many days a week as possible, but at least 6
-Include the strength training 4 days a week as well.
-Keep up with my nutrition efforts

Bonus for me...it was my weigh-in goal day I set on my Wii...and I MADE my goal!!! Little flowers popped up when this was acknowledged!! Yay! Even though I was unable to get in the fitness minutes I wanted, I kept up with my nutritional goals and managed to get off the extra 2 pounds this week. Just imagine what I can do if I combine the two of them!

And my extra motivation coming from a fellow sparker (and sorority sister!) this morning. Even having someone check in with you is a great boost, and I definitely have always had trouble with motivation, so it helps a LOT.
