Last week I was a flot. I took a week off and re-energized my motivation.
I have worked out 60 minutes so far but hoping for another hour tonight Did muscle toning circuit training this morning Tracking my food and I took the kids swimming and then hiking on Saturday. Hope the weather holds out for tonights walk.
1) Do at least 120 minutes of cardio a week - COMPLETED 2) Do at least 3 - COMPLETED 3 ) Track with the food tracker 5 days a week - COMPLETED 4) Involve your children (if age appropriate) in some type of outdoor activity twice a week- COMPLETED
I am happy to say I did all of the above this week so far and I have lost one pound, which is surprising since I did a little less with my workouts this week because of having so much going on.
So on Tuesday night I took the kids to the dog park and play park, Wednesday we went to the SOL carinval at school, playing carnival games after answering grade level questions and then went to 711 for small sugar free mango slurries. Tonight is cubscout night and it is physical fitness night. There are a few projects we are trying to finish up before advancements next week.
Goal 1 - do 120 minutes of cardio a week - I did 40 this morning Goal 2 - do muscle toning/strength training 3 times a week - I did 10 minutes this morning Goal 3 - Track you food - so far so good Goal 4 - Include the kids in some sort of exercise - We are walking the dogs to the play park tonight after dinner. So they get some play time and exercise in all at the same time.
Tomorrow is the big day to start he new challege. My starting weight is 187, my goal is to get down to 179 for a 8 pound loss. Not sure if two pounds is doable but I am going to try. I would like my stay in 180 ville to be short.
For the May challenge in preparation for the upcoming Summer we need to make sure we are staying motivated and on track so the challenge for the month will be as follows:
1) Do at least 120 minutes of cardio a week 2) Do at least 3 - 10 minutes segments of strength training a week 3) Track your food intake with the food tracker 5 days a week 4) Involve your children (if age appropriate) in some type of outdoor activity twice a week (could be walking the dog, swimming, playing in the sprinkler, walking to the play park, biking, beach clean up, etc.)
Please post your progress as your go along. Also post your personal goal for the month so you can see if the accountability gave you the push to reach those goals. Don't forget to post!!
