End of January's Social, Fitness, and Nutrion Challenges
Monday, January 21, 2013
Its time to regroup, refocus, and get my butt in gear! This week I lost nothing thanks to the arrival of my period ... FUN! ugh! My month has been a disaster and Im sick of complaining, sick of feeling so bad that I apologize to everyone before anything else, and just sick of the bottom falling out! So here's some challenges to round out my month on a happier note!!!!!!
Call, text, facebook, spark, visit, anything really - a friend EACH DAY!
(Ive been feeling really antisocial lately ... so this is necessary!! Im going to follow my weights with this so that it becomes a habit - work out while I wait for kids to fall asleep ... connect with a friend as soon as they do)
C25K - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday @ 9:30am (only excuse available: weather)
Weights - Sunday, Wednesday, Friday @ 1:00pm/Naptime (no excuses)
Planks, Crunches, Stretching, Meditation - Everyday @1:00pm/Naptime (no excuses)
(Ive been slacking on my weights ... Running I enjoy but I often times dont make it a priority putting others needs/wants ahead of my own. Ive already plugged C25K into my calendar with reminders ... now to add the weights/planks)
Water - 10 glasses
Carbs - 150-180 g/day
NO FAST FOOD
Eating Out- Dinner Time Only
(Im embarrassed to admit that this month has been so crazy that Ive relied on panera bread, and other quick food places when I know I dont need too .... I have to cut the "quick and easy out" ... so no Fast Food. I also find that breakfast/lunch times are the worst times that I tend to look for hte quick fix... so limiting eating out to dinner helps alot. I dont want to go out to eat after my oldest gets off the bus at 4pm (yes! can you belive how late that is?!) knowing we need to do dinner, some playtime, dinner, baths, bedtime routine ... so avoiding any other food time is going to help huge!)
So thats it. My plan to finish this month strong. Ive never stuck with a "diet" this long ... guess this is why its not a diet but a life style change. Im amazed at how much Ive lost... how motivated I am even when I dont do as well as I like. Im not sure whats different this time but it is different. I can feel it.
