Better Late than Never! Resolutions...

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Finally, I am getting around to posting and implementing my 2014 goals. I knew January was going to be difficult with travel and such, so I intentionally planned to begin my efforts 100% on Feb. 1. Here we go:

FITNESS
* 100 pushups and 100 crunches 6 days/wk (Wed-Mon)
* wog(walk/run) at least 45" 3 days/wk (Sun,Wed, Fri)
* swim or bike at least 30" 3 days/wk (Mon, Thur, Sat)
* rest 1 day/wk (Tues)

NUTRITION
* eat salad 4 meals/wk
* no butter on bread
* 5 freggies/day
* fish at least 2 times/wk
* increase dairy protein/calcium (skim milk, no fat cottage cheese, no fat yogurt)

OVERALL
* 1000 combined calories (in/out)/day

I'm off to a good start. I had 1/2 slice unbuttered whole wheat toast with my breakfast of one egg, turkey sausage and honeydew melon. For lunch, I had 2 clementines and a cheesestick.

I rode my bike to the grocery store to get fixings (including salmon) for tomorrow's lunch. DH, Jeff and I are babysitting tonight, so dinner has to satisfy a 2 year-old and a 9 month old. We will have whole wheat penne, sautéed chicken breast, broccoli, carrots and peas, along with some fruit.

It is really nice to be getting back on track. I have been neglecting my diet and my cardio since November. Hopefully, I'll be able to make positive reports to you as the plan progresses.

I hope your January went well.

A Happy Belated New Year!!!!!

    Those are huge resolutions. My goal is to work more on muscle strength. Have done the 20 minute resistance bands workout (Coach Nicole) twice this week and
    love it. Finally able to keep core engaged and like the way it makes me feel. Was really sore after Wednesday's workout and was panting after some of the 15 reps. Friday it felt much smoother. Love that you and Jeff get to babysit the girls. I am totally green with envy. emoticon emoticon

    Your goals are very well thought out, measurable and achievable~GREAT! Travel always throws a wrench in the routine. Glad you're off to a good start today. Have fun baby-sitting your precious granddaughters :)

    P.S. I'll send a message soon. I've been extra busy lately and not spending as much time on SP the past week or so.

    emoticon Still have not done my resolutions but will do so. For the first time I am late so maybe it will help focus on them more with less holiday distractions. Good luck!
