Week 1 - UGH!

Saturday, December 10, 2011

I wish that I could say Week 1 of December was successful. Unfortunately, it's been anything but successful. Here are the goals I set for myself:

December Goals:
emoticon1. complete at least 30 minutes of cardio 6 days a week
2. complete strength training 5 at least 5 days a week
3. 64 oz of water everyday
4. no more than 8 oz of soda 3 days a week
5. be more active on my SP Teams

The cardio workouts I have done haven't been anything high-impact, so they don't really seem to be having much impact. I didn't even come close to meeting my other goals for the week. My water intake has been better than it was last month, though it's been coming mostly from eating ice. LOL I'll be on the road for 9+ hours tomorrow with my neighbor, so I don't expect to get much of a workout done. We're driving up to Auburn to pick up her grandson. Keiran is riding with us and Daisha is staying at home with her teenage daughter (who Daisha loves) and husband.

Next week has to be a better week!

    Jamie you have come so far!! This is the WORST time of the yr for staying on track and focused on ourselves because everyone else matters more!! The season of giving and unfortunatly the season of giving ourselves as well which takes time we would normally spend on ourselves!! Dont beat urself up so much, you should tone down ur goals for the season and pick them back off when the new year hits!! Dont worry about it so much becasue if your busy that means your still moving and THAT does count for something just watch the goodies your nutrition so you dont go overboard!!

    Jamie, this is only one week in your journey with fitness. You are doing SOMETHING which is better than doing nothing. Don't beat yourself up too much. Just put in what you can and make it count.

    I have a long road trip ahead of me at the end of the month, so I know how car rides can be. I hope everything went well for you and Keiran. I know my kids tend to get antsy after a while, especially Anissa (age 7).

    You will rock it this week girl. I have faith. emoticon

    Girl emoticon but just remember December is one of the busiest months of the year for all of us. So maybe you might need to cut your goals down to 3 a week and just rotate them and remember you can only do your best, no more, no less.

    Hang in there and happy holidays.
