Ramblings of new goals

Monday, March 12, 2012

Need to change things up. I have been at a stand still. New goals are,

15,000 steps for at least 5 days a week
10,000 steps for two. That is 95,000 steps a week. That is an average of 13,571 steps a day. This will be easier when the weather is nicer, like this week. We will see.

Will still walk 1 mile a day, or maybe soon ride my bike for over 2, minimum.

Got Jillian's 30 day shred. Did it 2 days last week. Fell on the ice, so my knee was messed up. But now I am working to make it 5 days a week. Before that, I did Zumba. Changing things up to tease all the muscles. I have other DVD's to do too.

The funny thing is, when I really work hard, like last week, I gained a pound. I know, that is my muscles healing and absorbing water or whatever. So we will see what happens. But this is a life style change up, and life does get in the way. I might not make all my goals every week, or every day, things happen. But that is OK. I know I have lost inches. Maybe at the end of April I will measure again to see how much.

Oh, and guess what. One of my original goals was to fit in a snowmobile suit that I just loved and outgrew. I tried it on a couple of weeks ago, when we got all that snow, and it FIT!!! With room to spare!! Woo Hoo for me.

One last thing. Today marks my 5 year anniv. for quitting smoking.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Almost forgot, I want to have at least 1000 calories burned every week.

    We walked 9 miles on Saturday, and still, I'm up 3 pounds mysteriously! One never knows what does it for sure, but at least we KNOW we're doing things RIGHT! emoticon
