Summer 2013: I love this picture
one of my favorite photos of me when I was 4 years old.
I made some goals at the beginning of the month.
some of the goals I altered during the month due to lack of time and other activities that I replaced them with.
This months goal is to complete 1,000 pull-up, (I reduced to 50 a week)
3000 Russian Twist I am on track with this one.
do a 22 exercises 22 times 1 set for 22 days. Yes I did this.
first week of May complete a 5-5-5 and increase by 1 each week so by the last week of May I will be 8-8-8 (replaced with T-25 workout and have been on track with the workout.)
do 1 cize dance a week ( on track)
run at least 3 miles a week. (almost, I will make this a goal for June as well. I love to run on Saturday mornings with my running group, but sometimes I have I cant make it.)
This is along with my regular gym days. (I missed one Wednesday and have only made it to the gym twice on a Saturday.
Over all I did very well with my goals.
With all this activity one would thing that I could shred more pounds, the thing is I love the taste of food so I eat it. I like to have a glass or two of wine on a Saturday evening. I have to workout to either stay at the weight I am at or workout extra hard to loose a couple of pounds.
I have been paying more attention to what I have been eating and making sure that if I am going to eat that tasty food I have an activity to keep me balanced.
My exercise plan?
walking at recess, Gym at least 3 times a week, workout at home; I invested in Shawn T CIZE and a weight watchers ab workout. running on Saturdays and maybe a dance video as well.
When life gets sticky as it usually does, I will not forget that I am God Begotten, and I will remember that my Lord is only a breath away.
I will continue with my goals of the past.
part of my plan is to continue with the following.
My new challenges is to try not to complain so much. I have realized that I have been doing way to much of that lately too.
I am going to add that into my daily challenges.
I am going to not complain for at least 1 hour out of each day. :)
this will make me aware of what I choose to talk about. Each time I find myself starting to speak negative I will do my best to think of something positive. It will be difficult at first but after a while it will become easy.
that is my new challenge.
Not so much loosing pounds but loosing negative thoughts. Then I will work on the pounds.
My goal is to get down to 130 pounds.
I am finding that my goal is not all about my weight. I must change my habits.
1. 10 minutes to each of my children (devoted only to them, not interruptions.
2.. Eat healthy at least 6 days a week
3. hard core cardio at lest 3 days a week
4. burn at least 2000 calories a day
5 take at least 10,000 steps
6. fill up my activity tracker.
