May Goals

Wednesday, May 01, 2013



I'm thinking if I put my GOALS in type for many to see *I* may just carry these out! emoticon

1. Les Mills Combat. I'm restarting week 3 after a bad week (ill kiddos/ stress). Continue from day 15 on throughout May

2. Track my food 4+ times per week. I know daily is best, but trust me 4 would be stellar!

3. Walk 3+ times per week. Increase distance on days time allows. Currently walking 3-4 miles on a weekday, 4-7 on a weekend day.

4. Plan ahead for the days I'm helping a co-worker... I've been delivering an extra mail route 2-4 days a week for 2 months now. I do not stop for lunch, nor plan ahead... need to pack carrots/ apples/ greek yogurt/ other easy to grab things so I do not arrive home hungry and eating everything in sight!

**NOTE: I'm a mail delivery gal, but do not WALK to deliver (wish I did most days). I sort then drive to the Community style boxes and deliver, my own route is 19 stops, the extra one is 40!! Makes for a very long day. **

5. Increase 'greens'. I do not struggle with fresh fruit, but the vegetables ... yup I need help there!

Simply put:
Water
Exercise
Smart food choices

Weight is up and that needs to be STOPPED ASAP!

    Nic - you can do this. HAve you ever looked into greens from the health food store? I use powdered greens from IT Works but GNC has then aso I am usre someone has them in Canada as well. Mine you can mix with water, juice, just about anything I imagine. Tastes a little citrus but mostly no taste just makes your drink green and everyone ask what you are drinking LOL

HEre is the link for the ones I use. http://www.myitworks.com/shop/produ

    emoticon emoticon Definitely some GOOD goals here, and very attainable! Sounds like you have already gotten some stellar advice about planning ahead either the night before, or just sometime at the beginning of your work week! Hopefully those long days won't last too much longer for you. I know you can do it!!! I will be here cheering you on as well!!!

    Back on track! Great goals, now to put them in place (the hard part, I know).

You can do this! Plan ahead for those challenges you see and let us know how you're doing!

    yeah, ESPECIALLY if your swimsuit talks to you too!! emoticon Oh, I'd love to 'do' a martial arts based cardio workout - just think of all the self-defense moves I could learn!! VERY IMPRESSIVE Nikki!! What 'kit' did you get? My mail carrier is a lady and my sister was a mail carrier after serving in the US Air Force!! I think you ladies ROCK!! emoticon Listen, girlfriend, if you can 'do' Les Mills Combat, the rest of this *stuff* is a piece a' cake/piece a' pie!! emoticon emoticon

    Lots of TLC emoticon in these comments Nicole. If you do lots of prep work on Sunday for the week ahead you have your own grab and go versions of things at the ready including something for when you first get home and you are ravenous. That's a great time to grab a water and something to tide you over until dinner.

Putting those green veggies into a smoothie when you get home would be filling, get a ton of servings in and be a way for you to share something with the kids when you get home and wind down too. Make it fun for you to come up with new recipes together. The boys will be surprised at how good they taste. I promise!

This is one of the best walking programs out there. Consistency is key to training for a half marathon. Knowing the cut-off time is important too. Having emoticon fun with Jen and Krista making memories is the single most important piece!

Think of the prize at the end of all these extra shifts which is being debt free another of your goals! emoticon emoticon

    Go, go Nikki. I agree! Writing your goals down and putting them "out there" is a great idea. I grew up with my dad saying "It's not a plan, unless it's written down" which is why I make a daily list on my computer! You can and will have a great MAY!

    Sounds like a good plan that is flexible enough to change with the days. Good luck! Hope this other mail delivery person gets back on her feet soon so you can get your life back.

*HUGS**

    emoticon Keep at it! Try the baby versions of the greens- they are much more palatable! I found romaine, arugula, and kale at my store, and they aren't chewy and leathery at all!
Have a great, successful May!

Pea pods are a great greeen snack to take along with your carrots, one of my favs!

Make planning your next days food a priority before going to bed. You can make it happen!

    Great goals, Nicole! You can do it! Sorry the sickness hit your house and prevented you from getting the combat workouts in, but it sounds like you've got a great idea in place to restart. Life happens, best to roll with the punches and I'm sure you're doing the best you can. The planning/food part of it sounds like the biggest obstacle. Maybe since you aren't stopping for lunch you could still eat in the truck and pack a sandwich, cut it in 4th's so it's not as messy. Just a thought. I'll be your accountability buddy if you want one. Exercise has been great, on track with the combat, but eating habits always need work. Headed back to a support group tomorrow night for that.

    I like your goals....and know you cn do it. May I suggest...focus more on PLANNING your meals/snacks...so you leave nothing up to chance.

For the most part...you are good with fitness....I am sensing more problemtic area of tracking....and planning.

again...just a suggestion.

I believe in you and am cheering you on.
