Weekly Update Blog (Update on goals) Plus a little on calories and my new Toy

My favorite quote! My Baseball son loves it too

This week seemed long to me... Not sure why. I am still stuffy and fighting a cold or sinus infection. I am being stubborn and have not gone back to the doctor. Maybe I will schedule an appointment next week.

I am getting the biggest Mother's Day present I have ever gotten. A Motoactv by Motorola. I am happy cause it has GPS, Heart rate monitor (with a chest strap), MP3 and so many more fun features. I can't wait to see how many steps I take at work. Since starting my more active job I read some articles on spark that I may need to increase my calories. When I ate over once I found I lost weight. I added a few calories to my tracker. Once I wear my toy at work and count my steps there is an article on spark that tells how many calories to add. It always feels strange to add calories to lose weight.

Update on my goals for May

May 2012 Goals

Exercise 2500+ minutes ---
I am at 689 minutes so this seems doable

Run/Walk 3 times a week ---
I am only running 2x this week. I am still congested and running has been hard. I am taking it slow and using more walk breaks. I will run today.

Take one active rest day per week ---
Done Sunday

Do Strength Training 4-5 times a week --
So Far done everyday except 1 so I am on track

Eat 6-7 Freggies a day --
No problems veggies!

One day per week allow myself to go over calories by 100 or so. Just to reset my metabolism--

Try a New Type of Exercise In May---
I played a new game on XBox Kinnect to have fun and exercise.

My favorite running quote below. I love it this week because I have to run slow due to congestion. I will remember that the speed does not matter!

    I hope you LOVE the new toy! Can you send me a link to the article that tells you how many calories to add if you walk a certain number of steps- I'd be curious to know what Spark recommends. I'm sure I still eat too much, but it might cheer me up to know that I'm not THAT far over...

Hope you feel better soon!!

    Great blog! My weight loss seems to have stalled a bit. As it slows, I've been cutting back calories. Yesterday, I went back and looked at my calories for the past 3 months. I have been at the low end of the calorie range each week, frequently not even eating the minimum. And that was BEFORE I started cutting back calories. So beginning yesterday, I am making a concerted effort to increase calories to the mid range. I appreciate your comments on calories. (As it helps validate what I want to believe!!)
