Week 4 Progress

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Week 4 has passed.

I had 1 day this week over 2000, it was at 2500 calories. The rest of the days were within my 1200-1800+burned calories. The weekends are still the higher calorie days, and they are also my "rest" days.

At work, I am still doing some workouts. Lately instead of doing 1-5minutes every hour or hour and half, I have been doing 15 to 20minutes break with exercise behind my desk. I have been doing this workout after my mid-morning snack, and before lunch.

I am still finding a reason to get out of my chair regularly... I have been managing 7 to 8 cups of water during the work day. The getting up for more water or to relieve my body of water seems to get me out of the chair every hour to every 2 hours in addition to when I get up for my mid-morning snack, lunch time, mid-afternoon snack, and my work-time workout.

After my morning alarm goes off, I still lay there for 3 to 5 minutes. I do not hit snooze, and I do not wait for my second alarm. I feel like I am not getting up as quickly as I was, but I am still not snoozing.

In regards to exercising... I did a Wii workout for roughly 10-15minutes each on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I then did roughly 15-20minutes of exercise while at work on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I have not felt sore for long periods of time. Monday night, I had sore lower abs for a few hours, but it went away before bedtime. My body seems to have adjusted quickly to working out. I still get exhausted during it, but I am not getting sore. Thus, I will start trying to get up 30minutes earlier to do morning workouts. I just need to figure out specifically what exercises I am going to do each morning.

I really need to figure out a way to remember my multi-vitamins during a time I can actually take them. I will remember them around lunch time when I am logging my food and other goals, but I cannot remember them when I am actually at home.

Goals: Week 4 outcome

    You have really good goals! I like how you have goals in multiple areas of your life not just a certain calorie range. It really is about a total lifestyle change in all areas.
