High Hopes for June

Thursday, May 31, 2018

I've been doing some thinking about how I want to tackle June since I've not seen any real success from my exercise routine lately. And today I read this SP article. www.sparkpeople.

Half of what I was working on was in the overrated categories. *sigh*
So, I've gone back to do some thinking about what I was doing when I lost my first 30 lbs. and I think I am going to try to incorporate some of that. I know, that probably sounds like a 'duh' but I'm a little slow.
So, no more morning exercises (crunches, squats, push-ups) but a morning purposeful walk. For at least 15 minutes first thing, I'll walk like I really mean it. Elevate that heart rate. I'll also try to get in jump roping/jumping jacks a couple times a week if I can. I don't really like that, but it is really good exercise. And I'll go back to doing daily plank.
I bought some Atkins protein shakes and bars for the breakfasts and lunches when the family is eating mostly carb foods. I can utilize those without feeling like I have to make a second meal or just go without. And of course, my water intake. I've been getting in the bare minimum of 64 oz and being satisfied with that, but I need to work on getting in more, especially since I am still drinking coffee. I think I am going to go for about 80 oz of water each day. I just can't see myself actually drinking a full 128oz each day to get a gallon in.

So, to consolidate all that...
My goal for June is:

1. At least 8500 steps every day.
2. Morning walk of at least 15 minutes 5 days a week. With an elevated heart rate.
3. Plank every day.
4. Jump rope or jumping jacks three times a week
5. 80 oz water every day.
6. No more than 1550 calories a day except on special days. (My birthday and our 20th anniversary are this month.)
7. 3-4 servings of fruits and veggies each day.
8. Take my B-12 and D vitamins every day and Gaba when needed.

I'm putting a tracker in my BuJo for each week so that I can work on marking these things off in a very visible way. My BuJo is open on my desk so I see it all day long. Having unmarked squares in my tracker drives me batty so hopefully that will help.
