YTD Progress on 2012 goals

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Originally, I planned on writing this entry at the end of January. I figured one month into the new year would be a good time for a check point. I even set up a spark appointment with an email reminder so I wouldn't forget. Oh well, better late than never so here goes.....

I've done pretty well with my fitness and exercise goals. I haven't joined the rec center, but I've been doing spark people strength exercises at home and have been using the treadmill 3-4 times a week. I started with the heart rate intervals as I had planned.

I've been the most consistent with my diet and nutrition goals. I've been eating meat free 2-3 days a week; all breakfasts and most lunches have been vegetarian or vegan and I've been eating a lot more vegetables. I've been drinking my three cups of green tea a day and have starting incorporating more ginger and other anti-inflammatory foods into my diet. As of today, I'm down 8 pounds this year. So far, so good.

Where I've really flopped is with the TV. It's on as much as it ever was. I'm going to try harder with this. There are so many things that I'd like to do with the time that I spend in front of the tube. I'm going to try cutting back a half hour at a time. Maybe that will be easier than quitting cold turkey.

I hope everyone is making progress with their 2012 goals!

    emoticon Two thumbs up on your fitness to date! And thanks for stopping by my blog. I understand about the television. Maybe tell yourself that if the television's on, you'll walk/march in place while watching the show and do crunches or lunges during commercials. emoticon

    Nice job on the weight loss and being more active. I know you can make the TV changes also. Way to go!
