New fitness goals

Thursday, July 21, 2011

I had set fitness goals for myself a long time ago here on SP. Well, as of this month, I've been exceeding them to the point that the site suggested I change them up! So, I added on more cardio and revised my strength training (which I definitely need to do more of).

I'm am pretty pleased with my progress so far. A DZ sister challenged me to get my lazy self out of bed in the mornings -- EVERY MORNING -- and work out. While that hasn't been possible 100% of the time (due to travel and other activities that take up unexpected time) I have been pretty good for these first 22 days. I have certainly not kept up with any fitness regimen for so long in my whole life, so that says something right there!

I now want to make sure that I exercise at least 6 days a week with cardio and get in 4 days with strength training. Most of the strength routines don't require much equipment, so I can do them in my office once everyone else has left (ha!). I do have a resistance band here, so that will work great.

Feeling better, stronger, and more energetic. I went up the stairs at my parking garage yesterday and was not nearly as out of breath as I used to be (3rd floor, steep steps). I recovered much quicker and my knees didn't hurt so much. I want to be able to go up the stairs at work (LOTS of them) by the fall without feeling like I want to pass goal!

    Taking the stairs as often as you can is a GREAT goal to have. Since it is something you encounter every day at work maybe add that to one of your official goals?
