January Goals in Review

Sunday, February 03, 2013

January flew by! I can't believe we're in February already. I am entering my 6th week of working out consistently. I'm proud of myself! Hopefully I can keep my momentum...

One new change for this month is I am now using a BodyMedia Fit Link device to track my calorie burn. I am still using sparkpeople for nutrition tracking though. I started wearing it this Thursday and already I am learning a lot about my body. One of the biggest things I've learned is that I am not burning anywhere near where Sparkpeople was telling me I burned.. Which is a bummer! Some of the workouts I was doing were extremely ineffective calorie burning wise. For example, one workout sparkpeople told me I was going to be 300+ calories in 30 minutes. However, when I used my bodymedia, I only burned around 140 calories.. So there is a pretty big gap.

As a result, I'm having to tweak my workout plans and goals to reflect this lower calorie burn. It'll be interesting to see what kind of weight loss I will have from using this device. I'll continue to update ya'll on my journey.

Now to review my January Goals and Accomplishments:

In January I lost 7 pounds! emoticon I also met majority of my goals. My goals for January were:

Aim to burn 1,700 calories per week.
Work out 5 days a week
Complete each workout on the 28 day boot camp with Coach Nicole
Stay within my SP calorie range
Only weigh myself once a week (this will be the hardest part!)
Drink 6 glasses of water a day

The hardest things for me were weighing myself once a week and drinking 6 glasses a day (consistently). Most days I only reached 4 glasses.

I am now working out 6-7 days a week and I am finished with Coach Nicole's 28 Day Bootcamp. I am now moving on to The Biggest Loser 30 Day Power X-Train. Hopefully I will see some good results. I did day one today and LOVED it.

Here are my goals for February:

Aim to burn 2,400 calories weekly.
Drink 6 glasses of water daily
Stay within my SP Calorie Range
Reach 8,000 steps daily
Complete my 6 biggest loser power x-train workouts for the week
Walk 5 miles per week

I can't wait to see what changes February will bring!! emoticon
