Short and Sweet.....

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

I am keeping this blog intro short and sweet. Mainly because I just got off work and am a little tired and hungry emoticon. I know though that if I don't blog right now, the evening will get away from me and then tomorrow will come. Each day I put it off, the less likely I am do it.

Some of you might not think it is important to lay our their weekly schedule. For me, I think it is critical. Each time I have had really good success, it has been because I followed my plan. Well except for when I first started. The weight seemed to come off really easy then. I was a complete couch potato when I first started.

So here's my plan:

Wed 2/10:
No cardio. Rest day required (I skipped scheduled rest day on Monday)~ YES
BL gym class~ YES, option 2
Take vitamins~ YES
Drink 8 glasses of water~ YES

No soda pop~ YES
No fast food~ YES
Get 7 hours of sleep~ YES
Check and record weight~ 133.2

Thurs 2/11
Cardio exercise at least 45 minutes~ YES, walking with friends for 70 minutes
BL gym class~ NO
TNT challenge~ NO
Wall sit~ NO
Take vitamins~ YES
Drink 8 glasses of water~ NO
Consume 1400-1700 calories~ NO, too many to count. Feel back into old habits where I would have a stressful day or have circumstances that come up that I wasn't planning on and I cope with food.
No soda pop~ NO, several soda
No fast food~ NO, Raising Canes in afternoon and pizza in PM
Get 7 hours of sleep~ YES

    Your comment that it went easily to start but now you know you mus use a plan. That is sound advice for newcomers.
