My daily goals 5-4-12

Saturday, May 05, 2012

1. thing make sure I am eating enough food but not too much to blow out of my calorie range for the day. (Not met today only 1333 calories so too low)

2. Make sure I am not getting too much fat. This is my down fall as I tend to love high fat food when I am stressed out. (Fat was only 32 Goal met!)

3. Make sure I avoid foods high in sugar. Sugar is another one of those pointless food groups loaded with calories but usually no nutritious value. (Goal Met, Made a smoothie instead of eating unhealthy!)

4. Make sure I am getting enough water. At least 8 glasses per day (aka 2 nelgens) (drank 2 but need to start focusing on 3 soon, Goal met)

5. Continue not drinking pop. (had diet pepsi after lunch. Goal not met)

6. Work on getting 45 minutes of cardio 4 days per week. This one will be tough because there are weeks where I will not want to drive up for no reason. Or days when I work 12 hours and it will be challenging to get in 45 minutes but it is reasonable. ( 3 days down this week. on track for meeting goal )

7. 3-4 days of strength training. I will settle for 2 days per week but would like to go with every other day so more like 4 days per week. ( 3 days down this week Goal Met)

8. Find a way to deal with stress. Not dealing with it causes me to get sick and that is just not fun so maybe working on taking my aggression out on the bike again would help. (Very little stress today but tonight I did a hydromassage, and sat in the hot tub for 15 minutes so fairly relaxed!)

9. Find someone who will offer support along the way. I can do it but it is always easier with support. It is going to be a long road but it is able to be traveled and I need to do this for my health. (there are so many people all over to offer support. It has been a great week.)
