Week four was pretty good considering I was back to work full time this week. I work as a casual care aide, which basically means I sometimes don't know what my shifts will be until they call at 6:00 am and say can you work at 7:00. The upside of being a casual is that I can say no
Last Fri. through Mon. I worked 7:00 am to 6:15 pm which made it impossible to get two walks a day in. Before the first shift I got up at 5:00am and headed out the door, but it was REALLY dark and foggy so I walked 20 minutes and said I'm not doing that again till the sun wakes up a little earlier. After working on my feet for such a long day I had to force myself out the door for an evening walk which I did once then my hubby came home and took over dog walking duties.
I didn't lose my pound this week but came close .8 I'm okay with that I'm still ahead of my challenge goal.
I tracked everything.
Strength training is still a struggle but I ordered a Spark People fitness video so I'm hoping that will motivate me.
I committed to the challenge although I never did figure out how to add up my points
I'm looking forward to week five I like the challenge a lot it encourages me to get in the stretch exercises that my physiotherapist prescribed in a really easy manner. I tend to embrace the challenges I like better then the ones I'm so so about...go figure
The results of my forth week:
I have 5 goals
1. Lose a pound a week
4. Strength Train 2-3 times per week...did 1
5. Commit to the challenges
