    Great goals!

Could I suggest you add a nutrition-related goal like eating three servings of produce, logging foods, eating within calorie range, etc?

September Check in Week 3

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

1. Reach 185 pounds. I gained another .2 pounds this week, but I think that counts as maintaining and for now that is my goal until I get healthy again. I am changing this goal for October, I will make it to maintain instead of lose.

3. Minimum 20 minutes daily activity following this schedule as closely as possible. This is not happening right now, I am working on keeping up with my responsibilities with the energy I have, and I must say that my kitchen is looking pretty good this evening. I even cooked a healthy delicious favourite meal for dinner which will provide lunches for 3 folks!

Wednesday: Easy Run and Strength Training nope
Thursday: Biggest Loser Workout nope, 45 minutes of walking on duty
Friday: Rollerblade or Yourshape Fitness evolved and Strength Training nope
Saturday: Biggest Loser Workout nope
Sunday: Long Slow Run nope
Monday: Biggest Loser Workout and Strength Training nop, but about an hour of walking at a sporting tournament for my youngest.
Tuesday: Bike or Elliptical (active rest day) I did 30 minutes on the TM at 1 mile an hour.

4. Get 8 hours sleep 7 days a week. This has happened 7/7 days. I also napped a few days.

5. Try 2 new recipes this month. I didn't try any new recipes yet.

6. 60 minutes daily of housework. I spent the evening in the kitchen tonight, and instead of working around the mess, I cleared myself a work space on one of the cluttered counters. I also got some tidying done in the living room on the weekend while the kidlets were visiting the Grands. Took a load to donate too!


All in all, I am pleased with my response to the stress of the past week. Accepting my limitatons is very difficult for me. When I spoke to my boss about taking time off due to pneumonia again, he commented that I must be really struggling with the need to rest so much because it is just not my personality to sit down a lot, I am on the go all the time. That really meant a lot to me, even more than someone noticing when I lose weight(which is not happening right now, but it has in the past, and will again once I get healthy.)

So, while I may not have accomplished many of the goals I set for myself in September, I am quite pleased with my ability to roll with the punches, and I will make some realignments when I set my goals for October.

September check in Week 2

Thursday, September 22, 2011

1. Reach 185 pounds. I gained another 1.2 pounds this week.

2. Track in journal or online for 100% of the time. I totally gave up on this one, going to take a break from tracking for now.

3. Minimum 20 minutes daily activity following this schedule as closely as possible. This is not happening right now, I am working on keeping up with my responsibilities with the energy I have.

Wednesday: Easy Run and Strength Training
Thursday: Biggest Loser Workout
Friday: Rollerblade or Yourshape Fitness evolved and Strength Training
Saturday: Biggest Loser Workout
Sunday: Long Slow Run
Monday: Biggest Loser Workout and Strength Training
Tuesday: Bike or Elliptical (active rest day) I did a 12 minute bike ride to and from the school, and spent 18 minutes on the TM at 2 MPH

4. Get 8 hours sleep 7 days a week. This has happened 6/7 days, okay with that, the 7th day was 7 hours, so not far off.

5. Try 2 new recipes this month. I didn't try any new recipes yet.

6. 60 minutes daily of housework. Nada, really need to get to it though.

    Keep working and figure out if you are eating too much or too little. with all you do are you eating enough calories.

September check in week 1

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

1. Reach 185 pounds. I gained 2 pounds this week, pneumonia really set me back again.

2. Track in journal or online for 100% of the time. I got 6/7 days this week. Not bad. It was mostly written, and no numbers, but I'm okay with that.

3. Minimum 20 minutes daily activity following this schedule as closely as possible. I took Sunday and Monday off to work on preventing my pneumonia worsening.

Sunday: Long Slow Run nope, day off
Monday: Biggest Loser Workout and Strength Training nope, another day off
Tuesday: Bike or Elliptical (active rest day) no bike etc, but I did walk 31 mins on the TM at 2.0
Wednesday: Easy Run and Strength Training I am celebrating my 12th wedding anniversary today, so I am taking today as a third rest day, and tomorrow I will get back to my workouts.

4. Get 8 hours sleep 7 days a week. This has happened 6/7 days, okay with that.

5. Try 2 new recipes this month. I didn't try any new recipes yet.

6. 60 minutes daily of housework. Did some serious work on this one day of the week.

7. Complete the Terry Fox Run 10K route running. I am choosing to opt out of this event in a running capacity, but I may decide to attend as a walker depending on the weather. I will probably only walk one lap or so, but I still want to attend. The running is not going to happen. I could push myself, and attempt, but that might set me back in my recovery and I really want to do the 5K Run for the Cure in October so I am willing to give this one up.

    Hang in there, you'll get through this sickness. Just do what you can and when it's over you can step it up...but most important is getting yourself better. emoticon

    So sorry about the pneumonia. It is smart to back off and let your body recover. It's just not something to take lightly. We are so used to having antibiotics, it's easy to forget that pneumonia is a deadly illness. Take care of yourself!
