Goals for March 2013

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Another 5 % challenge has started and I am struggling to come up with attainable goals.

I am slowly recovering from my back injury. My physical therapist is pleased with my progress. I wish I was, as well.

Considering my limitations, the need to get stronger, to keep challenging myself and the need to find a way to curb this weight gain that's creeping up on me.

* 60 minutes of walking at least 5 days a week. ( I already do this)

* strength training 2-3 times a week. (already doing this)

* cycling 20 minutes 4 times a week. (increase from 2 times a week)

* challenge: try out my old workout DVDs to see which ones I can do without hurting my back.


* stay within my calorie range.

* lay off the d@mn chocolate.

Okay, there they are. My March goals. Let the good times begin.

    Baby steps always add up to a giant leap. Do the best you can every day and don't forget that even slow progress is still progress!
Good luck with your goals!

    Minna, if your PT is pleased with your progress, DON'T ARGUE! it's been my experience that physical thereapists are very hard to please and if they're happy it's avery good thing. You don't want to rush your recovery. Let you back heal well, not fast. ;)

p.s. I'll take the chocolate off your hands. emoticon

    Sounds great Minna. You will get stronger with your back. I don't know if you can but if you can, try yoga. It truly helped me when I did something to my back. emoticon

    emoticon These are great goals & since you're already doing some of them, it'll be much more simple than you think.
I hope that your back agrees with the exercises! I had a low back injury a few years back and I've certainly learned my limitations. Sometimes now I forget and it reminds me pretty quickly what I can & can't do. You'll be fine! PT's don't mess around, they'll whip you into shape in no time emoticon
