Week 3

Monday, November 19, 2012

Ok...this is my third week now, and I'm quite proud of me for doing so well, I only hope that I can continue this momentum.

So - what did I do well last week? Last Monday, I said that I would focus on 1. Exercise, 2. Fruit and Veg and 3. Water.

1. Exercise - Cycled everyday from Monday to Sunday 20-30mins max!! So this isn't an issue. I have a Fitbit now that is going to kick me in the butt to move more and to aim more. My first badge that I have to try and accomplish is 5000 steps - so far, the most I have reached is 3000, but I promise I will get there eventually this week. I have an exercise ball now, so that also adds on to my exercise regime, which came with a dvd on exercises as well as stretches and relaxation use. I'm aiming to lose 8kgs, as I do want to start walking again. Cycling has enabled me to exercise without hurting my knees, so once I feel like I'm ready to walk, I'll include in my exercise regime. Strength training is something I want to work on, so I will focus on doing that this week, at least 3 sessions per week.

2. Fruit and Vegetables - still trying to get a handle on this, but have done well last week. Both have been part of my meals and snacks last week, so I feel I still need to work on this.

3. Water - all good.

I've joined the HLC Challenge, I know its going to help me along as well. I'm excited at the prospect of losing, any small number is a good number, and no matter what, any loss is good, small or big. It all depends on how much I want it!! And I want it bad!!

This week - focus on: Fruit & Vegetables as well as Strength training.

    So glad to hear you got the fit bit zip. I was thinking about it, but i got this other pedometer already. It's not the best, so I may end up getting the zip when I have the money!
    Keep up the great work and congrats on your loss!

    Sounds like you are making amazing progress and your strategy is very good. There are so many new habits to form that it is good to break them down into manageable chunks. You've had a great success. Forward!

    Congratulations on your successes!!!


    I have been here for two months and still have to remind myself daily that it takes baby steps. Sounds like you have a good handle on the changes you want to make and you are challenging yourself on the areas you see need help. Keep up the awesome work and it will pay off.
