Big Weekend Planned

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Well, for ME it's a big weekend. The last month my life seems to have been out of control. I've had trips, both business and pleasure. I've been working hard. And my health focus has been up and down. This weekend that all changes. I completed my last business trip for a while and, at least for the next week, I'm on my own here on South Padre Island.

My husband flew out this morning for a business trip of his own. That leaves me and my personal trainer, Jersey, to fend for ourselves. That also means I have no distractions and no excuses to keep me from exercising, eating healthily, and tracking. I'm kind of excited about the whole thing. It's all about ME this week.

Here's my plan:

1. Take stock of food supplies and create a menu for the week.
2. Grocery shop so I have what I need to follow my planned menu.
3. Take out my new bike at least 3 times this week.
4. Walk at least 90 minutes daily with my personal trainer.
5. I'm feeling stiff so at least 5 minutes of stretching 5 days this week (that usually leads to more - I just need to get going but I'll accept 5 minutes if that's all I can give).

That's plenty. For those of you who check in on me every so often you know when I'm tracking like I should I pull the deficit calorie report. My target is to burn at least 500 more calories than I consume. I tracked yesterday -513! So I'm rolling!

Everyone, enjoy the weekend! Talk to you again soon. emoticon

    Good for you! I am also alone on this first week of my "get healthier this year" resolution. With my fiance gone it has been easier to focus just on myself and getting some momentum built up. Kudos to you for all you are doing! (Is your personal trainer your dog? Mine is and even tho it is 14 degrees we still went out for a brisk 15 min. walk. Could not have done it without her!)
