Looking forward to April new goals for the month

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Finishing up March with a gain in weight

April no if but or about I must get back to regular routine of strength training Feb I did all of 5 strength workouts and March was worst only 2

On of my goals for March was to once again get back into the habit of strength training did NOT meet that goal

emoticon on #1 eating meals at the table everyday and #2 Reduce my carbonate caffeine drinks for the most part I did well with this increase my water intake dramatically.

#3 cardio conditioning 12 minute pace no but I can stay on treadmill for 60 minutes and do a little over 13 pace.

#5 bed by 10PM about 75 % of the time

My biggest disappointment for the month was goal #4 Reduce body fat % today it was at 30.3% to 29.5% need to get back to ST 4 times a week Never happened

So with the review of March now to try again

1 Reduce body fat % today it was at 30.3% to 29.5% need to get back to ST 2 times a week .Let's start slowly this month see what happens

2. Cardio conditioning work on treadmill for 45 to 60 minutes at a 4.4 speed gym 3 times a week.

3. Jog at park at least once a week in preparation for 5K on April 20th.

4. Still need on working on getting to bed by 10PM need to get to 100% no exceptions for going in late to bed.

I thought that if I concentrated on cardio weight would go down and since that didn't happen need to get back to the real world and life work on the whole package.

    It really does make a difference when you plan (set goals). I am cheering you on with nutrition tracking. It the MOST important thing in weight loss!

    I love the way that you re-assess your goals each month. You stay focused and can make the necessary adjustments to achieve your goals.

    Great dedication on the water, meals at table and reducing caffeine, carbonates! That is hard for a lot of people to do!
    ST is important, yes for sure (especially for women), but so is varying your cardio. Your body will get used to doing the same thing over and over again and burn calories more efficiently. Runners especially need to cross train and work their whole body to become stronger runners.
    Keep up the great work! You can get this goal!

    You are so right about working on reducing the body fat %. For me so far so good for losing body weight. But not so fast, my problem is the Fat. I still feels lots of fat especially on my back, my jiggling arms and my tights. Those are very hard to lose area and I've learned how important to keep up your strength training. If you have more muscle you can burned more calories too. More muscle = more metabolism = burn more calories = lose weight. But my weakness is a strength training as well. Both of us, Let's work harder on our ST. We can do it!! I've already volunteer to be your cheer girl and you'll be mine. Ok?!
