So this year is not quite off to the start I was hoping for. It is definitely a work in progress with me revamping my whole exercise routine and adding strength training. I think I just thought I was a robot, and could turn it "on" just like that. Going from almost no strength training to 5 days a week is a process and I'm realizing I have to build up to it. I'm not going to change my goals, but you will see a lot of my goals aren't 5/5 or 7/7. I am definitely a work in progress but I don't want to lose sight of the goals I set, but I am learning to take it one step at a time.
Yesterday I was sick, and am still sick today but I am feeling 10 times better and I think this cold is on it's way out!
Then on top of that, my weight is fluctuating big time
and it's not adorable. As any of you know I have been struggling with gaining and losing the same 5 or so pounds and feeling like my body refuses to go under 212. But I'm not going to go into that because I have beat that to death in previous blogs and I don't want the focus to be solely on the scale. But I have accepted what's done is done and I am just continuing to move forward.
In other news though I am so looking forward to the start of BLC 21.
My captain even reminded me that I need to stop getting caught up on the few pounds I've gained and just push forward. I can't keep moping about these newly "found" pounds, but I can work to get rid of them.
So here is the recap for January 2 - January 8th.
Track water and get a minimum of 8 glasses. 7/7 days.
Strength Training: 2/5 days (This is one that needs a lot of work)
Cardio: 5/7 days (Two "rest days" but include walking) This would have been 6 out of 7 before the blasted cold. Oh well. That's life lol.
1000 Monthly Fitness Minutes: 246/1000
(This goal was added after I realized I have not had a 1000 minute fitness month since October, eek!)
Track Food: 7/7 days
Stay In Range: 4/7 days (This is going to be my number one focus for the following week to get to 7/7!)
Blog once per week: This is it, so
