September plans...time flies!

Friday, September 03, 2010

First, 2010 in numbers….

Jan= 6,774 calories burned / 864 fitness minutes/ 45.82 miles
Feb= 7,839 calories burned /1,015 fitness minutes/ 53 miles
Mar= 8,559 calories burned / 1,203 fitness minutes/ 78.6 miles
April= 8,373 calories burned/ 1,113 fitness minutes/ 67.1 miles
May= 9,722 calories burned/ 1,295 fitness minutes / 82.5 miles
June= 6,345 calories burned/ 863 fitness minutes/ 57.6 miles
July= 10,097 calories burned/ 1,353 fitness minutes/ 91.2 miles
Aug= 7,179 calories burned/ 926 fitness minutes/ 58.8 miles (obviously I left out one too many long runs)

September plans:
4th – While my 4 year old is in swimming classes I start aquaerobics or swimming myself! Every Saturday of this month! Woohoo!
5th – 10K in my parent’s hometown. YAY for family support along the route!
6th – I go Extreme baby! Starting Chalean Extreme! Just following the plan as is. There’s cardio, plyo, strength and even yoga.

-Continue running at least 2-3 times a week. Depending how it goes with CLX, I may have to squeeze 2 – 3 miles in the a.m. or before or after CLX. Just DO IT! I have plenty of sparkbuddies that continue to run while doing other programs, so why can’t I?? But since I am not on a formal training plan, no more long runs!!! Unless I suddenly feel like it of course. My next half is in February 2011 so I have a little over 2 months to train after I finish 90 days CLX.

-Blog often about CLX progress.

-Control binges and mindless snacking. More fruits and veggies!

-Track food a couple of days this month (thanks PINKBEANBOO for the idea!) Curious to see what my calorie intake is these days since I haven’t tracked a bite since January 2010 yet I’ve been successfully maintaining around 130 for over 8 months! (Give or take 2-3 lbs normal fluctuation).

-Take the traditional before and after pics for CLX program.

-I feel I should take on a challenge of some kind……Pushups? Abs? Go veg? ....Hmmmm…..maybe at the end of this month or for October. I’ll be thinking about this one.

-At home, get more done! I have a notebook for tracking this stuff. Need to get on it!

I CANNOT believe it’s September already!! Makes you think. Where the heck does time go? We can’t get it back. What have you done with it? Are just letting time pass you by or are you making the most of it? There’s still plenty of time left in 2010, so LET’S DO THIS!!!!!!

    You started over a year ago, where I started last month 158.2 to be exact for me. It's great to see how much it can pay off. I've never been athletic, but am working on C25K now and hopefully increase distance from there. Just like you, my baby weight was gone in a month but it just went up after that. My son is now 4 1/2 years old. Thank you for the inspiration!

    I love that quote and the image as well! Fun blog, time sure does fly, and I am grateful that I have had so much time to spend with my family, especially my children.

    I hate that I spend about 12 hours of my day either working or driving to and from work, and 7 hours sleeping... that leaves me with 5 freaking hours to get ready for work and clean my house up, take care of my kiddos, etc... So, unfortunately, I feel like I'm letting time pass by. :(

    Great goals and I believe you can do it!

    Great focus on your goals! You've motivated me to keep better track of my calorie/time/distance numbers each month now, too. Good luck with Chalean Extreme! I've heard good things about it, too.
