Today is another Monday. The days come and go more quickly than I would wish but it's up to me to make the most of each of them.
The impatient improbable part of me wonders why I'm not at goal yet. The realistic (and very tiny portion) part of me knows I have generous room for improvement.
I am able to see my progress. I can see how I have ramped up my activity and have grown stronger. I am more conscious of my eating and have been pretty good at making smart choices.
I am still fat. It's a little depressing. I am at a set point I have been at for many years off and on. I actually feel pretty good, don't look terrible in my clothes and many very over weight people would love to be where I am at.
I am struggling to reach that tipping point where my body begins to really burn this 30 pounds of famine insurance with confidence.
I am a little discouraged because if I push myself too hard with my cardio- my knee fights back. I rested all weekend and my knee is still tender. Sigh.....
This week I am going to plan my workouts. I am going to stick to the spark recommendations for my diet and the goal will be to burn 500 more calories each day more than I eat. I am focused on the next 7 days and nothing more.
Here is my exercise plan for the week;
Monday- stretch and stairs
Tuesday- 60 minutes cardio and stairs
Wednesday-walk and total body workout dvd
Thursday- 60 minutes cardio and yoga
Friday total body dvd and stairs
Best wishes to all the sparksters struggling today. You're not alone.
