Weekly Review (7/16/10)
Friday, July 16, 2010
I am down .5 pounds this week. So I'm tracking exactly on schedule.
This week I started my 100 pushup challenge. I do my 3rd day later today and I'm guessing it's going to be hard, but doable like day 2.
I started using the pedometer this week and realized that if left to my own devices (with no exercise) I move around very little during a typical work day. I wonder if the weekends will be much different. Still, it's really motivating me to do the elliptical. I think that if I live normally and do an hour of elliptical, I can maintain my goal of 10,000 steps per day. This is also good for the pre-diabetes management.
I'm also continuing to noodle about motivation and maintenance. The thing my mind keeps coming back to is a weekly weigh-in. For life. I have noticed that I don't have a emotional reaction to the ups and downs of the scale, so I think this might be an okay thing to do. I figure that if I record it like my cash flow, in excel, I can make it so that certain values are green(good), other values are orange(watch out for this) and some are red (bad). Then I'll just keep entering my weight and watching for the orange.
I'm also making progress on my keratosis pilaris doing the moisturizing/exfoliating thing. I'm excited to see progress.
I've made a lot of additions to Operation Whole Body this week, so I'm going to concentrate on these things next week as well. I'm pretty convinced that the key to success (for me) is to add on things slowly. In the past I have burned out by adding too many things, too fast.
