Nonstop November Recap

Saturday, November 26, 2011

emoticon Running: AT LEAST 3 times a week. emoticon
I can't say I totally met this goal because there was one week that I was only able to run once, but I continued my half marathon training, and I can say with total confidence that I am ready for my race next Saturday!

emoticon Other Cardio: AT LEAST 2 times a week. emoticon
I did more than last month, but not as much as I wanted to. I find myself thinking that running three days a week is enough and I don't have to do any more. But I do! I need to! This is definitely an area I need to work on.

emoticon Strength Training: AT LEAST 4 times a week. emoticon
BAH. Strength training is my weak spot. Even more than non-running cardio. When life gets hectic, strength training is easy to forget. If only I could get it through my thick skull that STRENGTH TRAINING SPEEDS UP YOUR METABOLISM!!!

emoticon Tracking: EVERY DAY, within my target AT LEAST 4 days a week. emoticon
I tracked more days and met my targets 95% of the days I tracked. THERE IS A LESSON HERE! Track. Your. Food. Kelli. Are you listening to yourself? TRACK. YOUR. FOOD!!

emoticon Freggies: AT LEAST 4 servings of fruits or vegetables EVERY DAY. emoticon
Thank goodness for Thanksgiving!!! So many yummy veggies to be had!

emoticon Water: 64oz of water EVERY DAY. emoticon

emoticon Sleep: At least 6 hours EVERY DAY. emoticon

I'm starting to notice a pattern here..... Every month starts off great, then towards the middle I stray and get discouraged, then at the end I rally and get all gung-ho again.

Rinse. Repeat.

But at least I keep trying. Picking myself back up and striving for better.

I'll be hitting my 1 Year Sparkversary in a little over a week. I look forward to updating you all about my progress over the past year. Though the past couple of months have been a bit of a roller coaster, I have made significant progress since last December.

    I love the confidence you're showing in regard to next week's race! That alone says *FIT* to me! Congratulations!

Congrats on hitting you freggies, sleep and water intake. You'll do better with the other goals next month... one day at a time. You can do it!

    Strength Training has another bonus. That's where the toning comes from. Even if you can't quite see those muscles yet, the training focuses on certain groups so that as you lose the weight, the muscled beneath can shine.
