Day 323 Tweaking your timetable is not compromising OR failing OR giving up!

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Okay.
In September I achieved some goals and didn't others. Last week I wrote out a timetable for my fitness minutes, to make up 350 minutes a week. It didn't work. I was exhausted by the 3rd day and was beginning to hate the couch to 10k, and not want to go swimming. For a few days I kicked myself for failing, then got my head back into gear. Learning something isn't failing. It's learning something. I learnt I had to easy back not on my minutes but on the intensity of what I was doing. Thanks all of you who cheered me on.

So for now the couch to 10k is on hold. The committed swims are pulled back to my 1 hour lesson, and one lap swim on Saturday nights. The rest of the time is strength work and physical play of some kind with Crusoe, and walks. For example I played in the local pool for an hour with Crusoe yesterday. I made sure when I was in the deep end I 'ran' and when in the shallow end we played tag. We were always moving.

I still feel active. Still losing weight and size, and daily have more energy. I will certainly increase my intensity as I get fitter. I feel it's more sustainable. And sustainable is what I want. I'll re-evaluate at the end of the Fall Challenge.

    It's so important for us to LEARN from our mistakes as opposed to LAMENT them. Our mistakes are nothing less than arrows pointing for us to move higher, quicker and make adaptations to our learning curve. You are a wonderfully made woman with deep love, joy and insight to offer. emoticon I'm proud of you!

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

    You are doing great if you are losing weight and having more energy. Slow and steady is the best way to change your lifestyle e permanently.
I am on my third try to sustain a healthy body weight on SP and am trying to make consistent changes.
I figure as long as I keep trying at least I am not out of control
