September to forget.... October goals
Tuesday, October 02, 2012
Well September came and went. This has been a rough month for me historically for a number of years. For a variety of reasons. I did have a pretty good birthday weekend and I was very proud of the fact that I am healthier at 37 then at 27.
The Monday following my birthday I had a follow up visit from the physical I took a few months ago. He was happy to report that My cholesterol, blood sugar and all my other blood work came back normal. The only health issue I have left is High Blood pressure. I am thinking that may just have still been elevated due to stress and the fact I didn't exercise as usual in September. It is the first month since I have been on spark I didn't register 500 fitness minutes. I am really ashamed of that and why i could make excuses they would be just that excuses. So for October I am getting back to doing what i have been successful at before and that is setting fitness goals I know I can do.
So here are my goals for October
8 glasses of water 6 days a week
100 Push-ups and 100 Squats 5 days a week
6 miles outside each week
So far two days in I have hit the water and ST goals. I will hopefully get half my miles in tonight while my son is at baseball practice. I have been playing in the 260's for too long over 6 months now. It is time to break this plateau and keep moving down. I hope to get in a 5k as well this month. that will help me stay motivated! Hope you all have a very successful October!!!
