July WUB #3

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Well folks, it's time for another fine edition of my weekly update blog. I think I missed a week, so this one is brought to you on this late date by the fine folks at Procrastination™! Anyways I like this week's biggest loser challenge, strength training, and goal visualizing. I have my goals posted on the fridge and on my computer at work, so I'm definitely spending time checking my progress. Here's the latest:

July 9th - 22nd:
1) Exercise at least 5 times a week with 3 days of strength training. -I definitely got my exercise in, but kinda fell apart half way through the week on strength training. Only got one day in if I remember. I'm refocus my efforts, especially for this week!
3) Continue eliminating diet soda and caffeine from my diet. - Soda and caffeine?I hardly know ye. Doing great here.
4) Eat a healthy balance of grains, fruits, veggies, legumes, lean meats etc. and still hit my calorie, sodium, fat, protein goals. - Doing well! I went over on my sodium only on one day, but otherwise I did great.

5) Run continuously for 30 minutes at one time. - I hit it this week! I did 41 minutes this monday and wednesday! I'm there!

6) Lose at least 15 pounds. I've got about 6 pounds to lose. It would be really tough to hit it in 2 weeks but I'm optimistic.

7) Try or create 4 healthy recipes - Angelique and I tag-teamed on making some fantastic salsa. My mother-in-law stopped by just get some more!

8) Build up enough stamina to get through the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Video - I did it twice last week. This week I think I'll switch to rowing as part of the challenge is trying a new cardio workout.

9) Get 8 hours of sleep each night - Oh goodness, that was part of the challenge last week, get 7 hours of sleep. I mostly managed. Can't say the same for this week. I really want to get to sleep earlier, I do I swear!

11) Maintain an average blood sugar reading between 80-150 - Fantastic as usual since starting SP. My Doc will be in Shock :)

    emoticon on an awesome week! And I can totally relate with procrastination as well. I think it's great that you are posting your goals in "real life" areas where you will see them :)

    Procrastination...oh my goodness does it get around. Procrastination is okay as long as we don't allow it to deter us for too long. Don't let it deter you just keep moving towards you goals. emoticon on jogging for 41 minutes. I am still working the walk/jog and that kick my butt every morning at 5:15AM. But you know what at least we are working towards our goals. emoticon Aaron all this hard work will be worth it!
