Day 123 Accountability

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Saturday --

emoticon1 - Exercise - Planned day of rest, but made up for yesterday's unplanned day of rest by taking a 1 hour bike ride. Burned 650 calories!
emoticon3 - Calories - 2,259. Had a burrito, chips and salsa, and a churro to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
emoticon3 - Sleep - 7 hours, but I didn't sleep well. I was excited about the Razr Droid phone that I looked at last night and bought tonight. Spark curfew - midnight, but it's Saturday night! And I was trying to Spark on the Droid. Takes way too long.
emoticon4 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 4 veggies.

NEW GOALS FOR MAY (similar to April. It's not broken, so I'm not gonna fix it.)
May 2012 accountability goals --
1 - Exercise at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week. Swimming class is over, so I will concentrate on walking, biking, and the elliptical machine. I may throw in a swim every now and then, but the indoor pool is pretty crowded during open swim.
2 - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1800 per day. Goal weight is 145 pounds by end of June.
3 - Sleep 6+ hours per night. Stop Sparking by 10:30pm. Curfew was very difficult to keep in April, but I need it. I'm combining the two goals, since they are inter-related.
4 - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.

I'm not going to report on the Soul Food daily anymore. Even though I start every morning with scripture, and will continue to do so, it was taking a long time to write the blog when I added that. I need to make the accountability as brief as possible so that I continue to do it while I'm traveling this month.

I really enjoyed the 100 mile bicycle challenge, and will probably continue that in May. But again, it took a long time to look up my mileage and keep the running tally. I'm also going to be gone for 10 days storm chasing, and since I don't own an iPad or Smart phone, I will be out of touch for those 10 days unless I can get computer time at the hotels overnight. So rather than fret about this goal, I am not going to make it an official daily accountability goal in May.

    What a great day! A bike ride that burned off your Cinco de Mayo food, and a new happening phone....WOW! Have fun with that phone. You might be able to do the bare minimum with spark while you are out storm chasing on it. You will probs figure it out quickly. Have a great week!

    You must enjoy Cinco de Mayo and it sounds like you did. Yeah! Spark is hard on my iPhone, too, so I just pass. Enjoy your weekend friend!
