650 minutes down. 550 to go. Desert hike this AM. To trainer at Gold's the afternoon. MD told me Friday I was healthier than I was a year ago. He was the one who originally recommended this website. Spark works (if you work it).
My "rehab" plan to monitor for October (based on premise that I what I can change is taking responsibility for the effort but letting go of the outcome):
* 1200 fitness minutes (including 2 sessions/week with trainer) * gym, or equivalent, six days/week * track nutrition & fitness daily * aim for daily calorie range: 1200-1500 * watch out for food payoffs for fitness minutes * practice gratitude
I have really been struggling with my eating, my workouts, and my attitude. And it shows in my body right now. I feel like a slug. My energy levels are down, my weight is up, and my moods are all over the place. But that ends now. (Actually, it ended last night when I made myself go on a late night, 6 mile run as penance for being a crabby jerk all day.)
On October 30th, I will be in Washington, DC, running the Marine Corps Marathon. It will be the most physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging thing I have ever done. And make no mistake. I WILL finish every single step of that event.
To do that, I need to get myself back on track. And it starts with specific goals and a plan of action.
October Goals: 1500 fitness minutes, healthy eating, run a marathon Action Plan: Run 3x week and bike 2x week, track my eating, and meditate for focus
