2013 Week 2 Goals

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

After reviewing last week, I have decided:

I will do strength training exercises 2-3 times this week. I plan on doing one exercise for upper body, one exercise for abs, and one exercise for lower body. I am planning on doing counter or bent knee pushups (upper), knee-ups (abs) and squats (lower). I will do only as many reps/sets as I feel comfortable with to start. I need to find a safe baseline to work from. 

I will do cardio based exercise at least 3 times this week.  I will try doing 15-30 minutes each time. Again, I need to find a safe baseline to work from. I will probably use my xbox kinect for the cardio.  No reason I can't have fun!

I will do lots of stretching, yoga and foam roller work.  I might even throw some meditation in there!

I have started going through my house and cleaning and decluttering.  I will continue that. I can not believe how much stuff I have accumulated over the years. I need to learn to throw things out once in a while! If nothing else, it gets me up off my behind and moving around.

I will continue to participate on SP. That really helps me to stay focused.

I will continue to read lots of educational and motivational articles and blogs, etc. I find it very helpful!

Since weight loss is so important to me, I will use the SP nutritional tracker at least 3 days this week.  I will weigh and measure everything! Ugh! I want to make sure that I am really eating as light and healthy as I think I am.  There is no foolin' that ole tracker! 

Here's to a great week!   emoticon emoticon

  The decluttering thing must be contagious, I am doing the same thing. I took over tons of books to the shelter I volunteer for yesterday and it made me feel good, plus I have more room in the house now. I think I will take a load of something each week and that will help. It is amazing how powerful it makes you feel to be in control and I think the less clutter, the more power. Thanks for the reminder, have a good one, Diane emoticon emoticon

    I am also working on "in house clutter". It is very important to have cardio & strength going together. Nice Goals.

    I am working on decluttering also. I am reading Peter Walsh's "Does this Clutter Make my Butt Look Fat?"

There is something there about letting go....

    Great goals! As annoying as it can be to track it sure does work!

    Think of the calorie burn that happens when you declutter! The scale and the measuring cups don't lie, but the eyes do deceive. Those sound like good goals! Keep it up!
