So I got my TAA letter today (trade adjustment act). I was recently laid off at the end of June and since my job was outsourced I may be eligible for some extra benefits. The one I'm most excited about is education options. I won't know much more until closer to the end of the month, so I have to keep myself busy until then.
I haven't done monthly goals in quite a while, seeing others set up their goals has motivated me. I'm feeling really good I'm down about 10lbs since starting cage fitness and about 5lbs since karate classes have begun. I'm pretty sure I've converted some fat to muscle so I'm not too upset about the low numbers. Goals below :
Karate classes 3 times a week
Complete class "warm ups" daily (without passing out/crying/whining)
Cage Fitness 2 times a week
Practice Karate at home 5 times a week (with and without kids)
Complete the 5k track walk/jog/run (crawl if need be) 1-2 times per week
Do at home workouts with my kids 3 times a week (plyo, strength, cardio, etc)
the kids pretty much just sing and dance while I actually work out, i don't trust a 6 and 4 year old with weights or bands
Stay within calorie goals per day 5 times a week
Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day
Steal husband's bike and re-learn how to not fall off of it
Isabel Green Belt graduation end of month
TAA meeting 8/22
Prepare for back to school for Isabel (woot 1st grade!)
I've already started to measure hips, waist, thigh, upper arm weekly - i will continue to do that - goal to get another 2 inches off hips/waist and 1 inch off rest by end of month
UPDATED change from monthly to bi-weekly based on today's results inches are flying off
Tomorrow I'm going to assess how many sit-ups/push-ups/jumping jacks I can do in a minute time frame for each exercise and set up some goals around increasing my amounts.
August will be busy, but I'm motivated and have the time - might as well make the most of it.
