Chip update & new goals for April
Saturday, March 31, 2012
I've been chip-free for 2 and a half weeks!!! The time flew by and I'm surprised and proud of myself. I almost gave in this week at Subway (every Thursday my boyfriend and I get Subway for lunch/dinner) but I went for the yogurt instead. Honestly, I haven't even felt any cravings for them either. Maybe I'm finally starting to break my chip addiction :)
Now for the real reason why I'm writing this blog. I have a dry erase board calendar that I write all my workouts onto after I've done them, with how long it took and how many calories I burned. If I don't workout then I put a red X on that day. Through all of March, I skipped 9 scheduled workout days... Nine!!! I basically didn't workout for a little more than a week this month! For me, this is unacceptable.
So for April (and hopefully this with form a habit that will stick) my main goal is to workout every day (Monday-Friday... Saturdays and Sundays are my rest days), even if it means just going for a simple walk if I don't feel like doing anything else. I don't even really have a calorie burn goal for each day, I just need to do something!
Another goal I want to work on is drinking more water. I've said this one a million times and never actually do it, but this time I really want to see what it's going to do for my body. I have a water bottle that I carry with me everywhere. It holds 3 cups of water, so I'll be keeping track with that. I'm going to try and drink a full bottle with each meal, at least on the days that I work (I can't have my bottle with me at my job because I work in a biohazardous area, so no food or drink until break times). I tried it out today and as expected, I was having to go to the restroom more than usual. But so far I'm feeling good about this one :)
I'll try to update once a week on these goals.
