Goals for November

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Where in the world did October go? And what the heck happened to my awesome goals? Somebody here needs a pep talk!

So here goes--

First, I've got to start finding time. Yes, life is busy and stuff comes up. So here's a brainstorm of workouts:
Short (20 minutes or less)
* strength training
* pilates
* TKD forms
* walking the dog
* quick run/walk, indoor or outdoor
* Spark video

Longer (20-40 minutes)
* 2 mile run followed by strength training/toning
* Tkd forms and kick combinations
* 5k on the treadmill

Tons of time (40 minutes and up)
* Long walk/run outside
* P90X DVD
* TKD class

Now, in November, there is NO REASON not to get in at least 20 minutes a day. For Pete's sake, anyone can do pilates on the living room floor while watching TV!

Second, the food.
STOP eating after 8:30. Instead, eat dinner later. OR eat a small dinner and save half of it for later. But no junk! Stop eating chips, candy, etc. when you're not even hungry. Try putting in a teeth-whitening strip -- then you can't eat!!

Third, the Spark avoidance. Yes, I have completely avoided logging in because I've been bad. So it's time to get honest! Log in DAILY while on break at work...and then finish sparking while not eating after 8:30.

So the goals are the same, but the plan is different. Let's rock November!!

    Those sound like AWESOME goals! A friend of mine and I have been texting each other every day and our goal is to do a minimum of 30 minutes of activity per day. Sometimes we just don't have the time or take a rest day on purpose but there's that accountability there and it's nice to have someone doing it with you. Let me know if you want to do that because I'm already doing it - it's just that I'd have TWO buddies. :)
