2013, Week Four

Monday, January 21, 2013

emoticon Last week was better for nutrition. My weekly calorie average is just within the upper limits of my suggested range! That means I'm now at 66% compliance for the year. I must add that I ate out often, so while I logged everything, there is the possibility that the numbers were not quite reliable. The scale will tell.

emoticon Now, I am in the habit of tracking every day, so the next goal should include my target ranges, and better snacking. My snacks were not very good last week.

emoticon At first, I thought my cardio was 5 minutes short of goal, because I only did 40 minutes on one of my cardio days. Then, I remembered that even when I focus on strength training I do up to 30 minutes of cardio. Yay! for working it in here and there.

emoticon Also, I did strength training on the lower body on Wed. & Sat. I managed ten minutes on the rowing machine at a low resistance, so I do want to try swimming again. I can focus on lower body. It will be a great relief to my hip, which is not too happy with these above ground workouts. I hope I can find some swim fins to buy before I go to the pool.

This week’s goals:
emoticon 45 minutes of Cardio 3 x week (Tuesday, Friday, Sunday)
emoticonTues. 50 min., Thurs. 30 min., Fri. 60 min., Sat. 40 min., Sun. 30 min. (no wonder the sp tools warn me to working out too much--they add the ST time too, must readjust calorie ranges.)

emoticon 2 x week lower body strength training (Wednesday & Saturday )
emoticon Thursday & Saturday.

emoticon Eat within calorie ranges 3 x week.
emoticon plus, average for the week is withing range.

emoticon Plan good snacks 3 x week.
zonk! I did better, but didn't plan.

Also, I need to review my 401k and other financial stuff over the weekend.
Zonk! I didn't get to this. I did online 'fun' classes instead; Korean, Hindi, & Communication.

    emoticon Wonder post and goals. I bought fins from Sports Authority. Sign up for their card to get discount and birthday coupon. I started taking Water in Motion class, which is total body workout and better than land exercise for me. Hope returning to swimming makes hip feels better. emoticon

    Swimming (and water activities in general) is so good when you have joint issues, as I'm sure you know. Good luck getting back in the pool!
