Report on the Mini's
Saturday, August 15, 2009
Goals. Yup it's the last day of the week and I'm proud to report some progress! I didn't weigh myself and have no intention of doing so. TOM always leads to weight gain and I don't need the bummer, so I'll make like an ostrich this week.
I managed to work out 6 days this week despite the complete "don't wanna move" attitude that comes with my period. I walked further and faster than I have previously. So I'm thinking next week will be even better! I've upped my weekly fitness goals to really give myself a challenge.
I've drunk the water each and every day. Who knew that drinking water would be such a tough task? It def is for me! I would so rather have coffee all day... ah well... I just keep water close by at all times and mark the time when I empty my water bottle. Any time I get up to pee, which feels like every 2 minutes, I have to chug 8 oz.
I still haven't taken my rollerblades out. I may need to return them. I'm a little bummed (I've lost the receipt) but I've made too many fitness commitments and not making excuses here, but there are really and truly only 24 hours in a day despite my insistence that I need about 28. I'm gonna give it a couple more weeks to think about it, and ideally DO something about it too!
Min calories have def been eaten (and then some) each day and I'm not starting the C25K until Sept.
The coolest bits of progress are unrelated to my stated goals.
My son does Pilates with me whenever I do it. He tells me, "It's time to get our Pilates clothes" and races for his bedroom. He's been making up new exercises for me to try. He reminded me to get my sports bra before I left for my evening walk tonight.
More than wanting to lose weight and get fit for myself, I want to instill fitness and healthy eating habits as such commonplace activities that he doesn't think about them.
That's the best progress I can report on both my mini-goals and my mini-man.
