WUB failure! 56%

Saturday, September 01, 2012

My last "Weekly" Update Blog was a month ago! emoticon
Not only did I not do weekly WUBs in August, but some of my 'established' habits got lost, too!

1. 500 Fitness Minutes goal for the month of August. 0 points emoticon

2. Daily list foods in SP Food Tracker. Lots of vegetables! Goal to work toward Dr. Fuhrman's Eat for Health Plan. I am still working on Phase 1 of 4. B+ for tracking foods! - I stopped the cholesterol statin medicine so far for 7 nights. Both gas and leg pain are MUCH IMPROVED!!!! 3 points emoticon

3. A minimum of 8 glasses of water per day B+ 3 points
- Big improvement! 3 points ( but i have been drinking green tea mostly)

4. At least 15 minutes of "me" time per day ....2 points
- I must get some "fun" time into my life. I love sparking but I need to limit it so I go out and see a friend or take some photos of nature or just take a walk in nature or something that I enjoy.

5. Water aerobics at least 3 times per week 1 point emoticon
- Now that my fatigue is lifting from getting back to my thyroid meds, I should be able to do this. BUT..... Real fatigue, then loss of momentum to exercise, then pool closed 3 days, then excuses, excuses, excuses! this goal is my strong point! I did only about 250 minutes.

6. Weekly updates on these goals to keep me focused 0 points!
OMG-- I was loving the WUB. Then it fizzled out.
- Weekly update is a good kick in the pants. It's so much better to take an inventory of my progress after a week versus months going by and me wondering "what happened?".

WUB reminders are now set to pop up on my computer to remind myself!

I had this in my calendar, but now I set it to get 'in my face.'

Writing about these goals weekly has been a good thing. I hope I can get the ball rolling again. Chris ----I CAN DO THIS!

    emoticon Yes, Chris, You can do this! You are doing well. And now, WE will remind you if you haven't updated your blog! LOL!

A lot of us are having the same problem - staying too long on SPARK - when we should be utilizing that time by doing, going out, moving more. I'm starting to cut back my time spent on line, severely.

    wait, what do you mean gas and leg pain better - talk to me
I'm having sciatic pain and I think it's b/c my abdomen feels really full, bloaty, and gassy. So are you telling me you've found a way to fix this? I mean other than a magic wand to take away all my ab fat in one fell swoop.

    I can relate to the fatigue. Everything can seem harder than what it looks like in the planning stage. emoticon
