Saturday Review/Goals for the Weekend

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Today's BodyMedia Fit record.

Didn't quite meet my calorie burn goal today, but that's because I didn't get to ride too much today due to the poor conditions on the road. I almost made it. I've discovered that if I want to even get close to my calorie burn goal (about 2800 calories), I need to do some sort of structured exercise twice a day (in the morning before work, and then after work).

And just because I get asked, here is a day's typical activity:

Morning: Stair workout-I walk up and down my apartment building's staircase 5 times, doing 5 pushups at the top of each "set" (up + down). There's 10 flights. It takes me roughly 20 minutes and burns about 200 calories. I do this every other day. The other days I sleep in. I'd like to change that by taking an easy bike ride in the mornings (but its sooo cold out...)

Evening: I either do the elliptical for 30 minutes OR I run a mile and then lift weights for about 25 minutes.

Also, I ride a bike at work. In total I can average between 1 hour to 4 hours of actual riding.

Feeling a little bit better. Glad the week is over though. Even though it was a short week, it felt like it went on forever.

Since the weather isn't going to be very cooperative, I'd like to make it a goal to get at least 10 miles in on Sunday and Monday (instead of 25). I really want to meet my 100 miles goal for this month. If I break it up in chunks through the next week, I should just make it.

I'm getting stronger with the weights. I'm glad. I still find weight lifting very boring, though.

Goals for tomorrow:
-10 mile ride
-organize the stuff from my locker
