So this is an update on my current progress with some of the goals I have set for myself. It has been up and down and heck I guess you can say round and round too. Crazy is a way to sum it all up. I do well for a while and then I tend to slip back into my old ways. Which, is why I think that every time I do really well and loose alot of weight it just comes right back and always brings a few new friends along...if you get my drift. Anyway my three goals that I started with are as follows with a couple of notes on how each one is going......
1. Drink 8 8oz. glasses of water a day or more
This one has actually been going alright. There are a few days that I don't get my full 8 glasses but i get some. Also I have pretty much switched to drinking only water so it's not hard for me to achieve this goal.
2. Go to the gym/workout at least 4 times a week.
This has been a little touch and go. I tend to get in a groove and then fall into vacation mode. However, as far as this goes I am determined to keep this one and you shall see why if you keep reading on. Finally, as far as this goal goes I can say I am LUCKY to have a husband that pushes me to go to the gym even on days I don't want to, s that is helpful.
3. Check into Spark people each day...to check in on my teams/challenges and also record food or fitness.
Same as above.....this is hit or miss. I try to check in, but sometimes i just don't. I'm weird like that because sometimes I just don't feel like messing with the computer. However I am going to work on doing better and maybe at least tracking food and fitness on my App.
My final BIG goal was.....
I would like to loose at least 60 pounds (or more of course) by December 31, 2012. In order to stay on track with this goal I would need to loose about 10 pounds in a month or about 2.5 pounds a week
This hasn't been going to well. I think I can attribute that to the fact that as I said before I fall back into old ways easily. So I'll do well and then gain back what I lost. The past few weeks I seem to be hovering around the same numbers. Hopefully next week I can break the cycle and just loose!
Finally, I have to admit I have come up with a new goal and this one I am DETERMINED to achieve! I have decided to run a 5K in November. It is now July so basically 4 months away. Today I actually started my first day of 5k training (which is why I need to make sure to keep up with my 4-5 times a week at the gym). By the way keep in mind I am not a runner by any means of the word, but I do wan to get to the point in which I can run most of the race. The link below is to the race I am running....looks like total FUN!
So this is my updated blog for the month....I am hoping I can turn things around and head down the better path....leaving my old ways behind me! Until next time....GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR GOALS!
