Game on

Okay, I have minimal time to do a lot of work, so I'm going to attempt to find a method that works. I'm simplifying my plan, and hopefully that will make it possible to achieve my goals.

So here are my goals this week.

1. MWF I'm going to the gym at 5:30 to do my treadmill workout. I am using a walking app to go from beginner to 5K. Once I've completed the 12 weeks I'll be up to power walking 60 minutes.

2. T/TH I'm going to do strength workout at home at 5:30am. It's too difficult to make it to the gym 5 days/week, but I can workout 5 days per week.

3. Stick to the menu I planned for dinners this week. I have dinner plans tonight with my advisor, but I knew this ahead of time and planned this into the menu for the week.

4. Drink water. It sounds so simple, but since it has turned colder I have not been successful at this goal.

5. Pack my gym bag, lunch, teacher bag, and set the coffee pot the night before. In order to make it to the gym at 5:30 everything has to be 100% ready the night before.

6. Track my calories. I've become lazy about this because I'm rarely on the computer except to do work related to teaching. I haven't had much time for things I want to do.

Okay, there it is. Last week was so unsuccessful that it gave me plenty to think about. So I've come up with a plan I think will work, if not I'll reflect and adjust as needed.

    Great plan! I used an application to work up to running a 5K. It was free and really motivated me to keep moving. Now I have a FitBit One and it counts steps and stairs for me. Love it!

    You have got both cardio and strength training covered. WTG!! emoticon

    Great plan, although personally I'm concerned with #5, at least the end of it where you say that if things aren't 100% the plan falls apart. Try to set a contingency plan that takes into account things like if the coffee pot doesn't come on, if you forgot to make a lunch, etc. Because, sooner or later one of these things is going to happen and it's going to ruin the day for you!
    Just my 2 cents worth :)

    Do it and when you're done, I'll give you a goodie (talk a bout a bribe!).

    Seriously do it and don't look back.

    emoticon I love the spark app for tracking my food on the go when I won't get on the computer anytime soon. It does help.

    Keep pushing forward and as pp said, add some time for fun when you can as well.
