Okay -- two weeks into my own personal 30 day challenge to blog and track daily and exercise 3-4 times per week -- and I've got success on ME-day (code for weigh in day). Lost 6 pounds total (two pounds this week!)
So I'm quite happy with my start -- the real test will be how the next two weeks go. And tonight I overindulged a bit -- managed to stay within my calories, but went quite a bit over on fat limit. I could have been more careful, on the other hand.. I could have done much worse too. But I got good exercise in this morning, and plan to exercise tomorrow morning as well.
Just started reading The Spark -- so I'm going along with the 28 day plan on there now too -- lots of blogging in my future apparently! There's some good things in there which are making me think about my goals. I would like to devote a little bit of time to thinking about what my real goals in life are and what my goals here are. I've listed out what my goals for weight loss are at least. Maybe need some more tweaking, but the life goals I seem to be at a loss with coming up with 'what do I want out of life' currently. I think too many things are up in the air with me these days between changing jobs and moving -- but it is definitely something that warrants some attention and time thinking about.
As for my own personal challenge though.. now that I am finished with the two weeks of Fast Break goals, I would like to up the ante and add on another couple of goals to the list with more specifics laid out. Sometimes I'm really good about getting my fruits and veggies in, but other days I'm lucky to get half a cup of a veggie in. For the last two weeks, I've managed to eat at least two servings a day. So for the next two weeks, I am going to spell out eating a fruit or veggie at each meal of the day (so at least three servings a day). Sometimes I go way over on this anyway, but I would like to make the minimum goal a little higher. I need to start working in some strength training during the week -- which I've always liked lifting weights and doing strength training and at one point was pretty happy with my strength -- although I've lost quite a bit of that, and for some reason am having a hard time getting motivated to get back to lifting again. So I'll add that as another fast break goal -- maybe just start with twice per week for 30 mins. That seems doable.
Okay, Looks like I've got my two additional Fast Break goals for the next two weeks.
Here's to the second half of my challenge -- 15 days left to go!
