September Report

Monday, October 26, 2015

I know I'm really late on this one. Sickness is getting in the way of my plans! September was a pretty controlled month!



NUTRITION

I met my caloric goals of 1450 calories or less 18/30 days this month, which is 60% accuracy! My goal was 75% accuracy, but still not bad.



FITNESS

This month I earned 2,865 fitness minutes! I met my cardio goals easily. I usually ride the stationary bike an hour a day. I am still doing well with the strength training, though not quite as well as in the summer. I average 2 to 2.5 one-hour ballet workouts per week. I did 11 one-hour workouts this month!



WEIGHT AND MEASUREMENTS

I lost 3 pounds this month! I went from 159 to 156 this month. (As an aside, I am frustrated that I have been gaining and losing the same three pounds for months. Still looking for that breakthrough). I still haven't found the gumption to face the measuring tape.



OTHER SEPTEMBER ACCOMPLISHMENTS

emoticon I read 7 books last month: Woman Warrior; Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass; The Sign of the Four (a Sherlock Holmes novel); Crito; Catch-22; The Other Boleyn; and Papers, Papers, Papers!

emoticon I wrote 7 blogs last month!

emoticon I am still working on 2 Metamucil a day and only 1 dessert a day.



OCTOBER GOALS

emoticon Write 8 blogs

emoticon Meet my goal of 1450 calories with 75% accuracy

emoticon Do 2-3 one-hour strength training sessions and 4 cardio sessions per week

emoticon Earn 2,500 monthly fitness minutes

emoticon Take measurements this month

emoticon Take 2 Metamucil daily, and only 1 dessert daily

emoticon Lose 2 pounds and reach 154!

    You are a goal-setting rock star! I admire that you set goals that are achievable, not wildly out of range of goals you've previously had success with. And don't worry about those 3 pounds. The things you're doing are helping you be HEALTHY, which counts WAY more than the number on the scale!

    i admire your goal setting! I am at 160 ( down 28 pounds), but have stayed the same for about 3 months! I fear creeping back up there! You have inspired me to set more goals besides lose 6-8 more pounds!
