Surveillance -

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

For the last 6 weeks of the challenge I plan to get myself healthy again to begin with. My back is still not where it needs to be to go full tilt like I am capable of.

Due to my current situation I need to continue watching my calorie intake so that I do not go in the wrong direction with my weight. I need to at least maintain until my back and neck a fully healed. Once healed I will return to my workouts and bring my body back to where it was pre-accident.

I will continue my yoga and ST to bring my body back and work forward with my weight loss. I will also restart the plank challenge due to having to stop from the accident. I want to get back to my workouts with Jillian and Bob to assist getting back on track. I will have to start with Jillian and work Bob's workouts in over time due to them being longer and more difficult.

My food and sodium need to stay in range for this to be possible. I also need my water intake to be more than that of any other beverage. I have been drinking more coffee as of late and that needs to be cut back. I also need to make good food choices and continue to ward off the junk food. With not feeling well the temptation to binge has been a bit stronger but I am still holding off. Colder weather has a tendency to make me crave a goodies and that needs to be kept in check as well.

I will continue to track all food and exercise as I have done since I started my journey. I will work hard at all of the above to see my weight loss goal come through.

11/7 PAWSE

Friday, November 08, 2013

Plan/Prepare for the coming week! - I need to get my back together so I can go forward. I will need to visit the Chiropractor so I can get my self back on track.

Act with consistency - Due to my back I will need to really watch my calorie intake due to exercise is at a minimum at the moment.

Write - Make a list of things to do so I do not get behind.

Set a goal - Be consistent with exercise and rest.

Execute - Walk, Walk, Walk…this will be exercise that I can defiantly do that will not have a major impact on my back.

Monday, November 04, 2013

Plan/Prepare for the coming week! -I need to prepare a workout to build up my shoulders and do more ST as well!

Act with consistency - 7 days of cardio & at least 2-3 days of strength. I need to get to bed at an earlier time. I need my sleep and I have not been getting the sleep I require.

Write - Work on doing my PAWSE on time rather than put it off and not get to it or do it late!

Set a goal - Food, Fitness and Rest need to be worked on more. I also want to work on my class this week. I have not been sitting down and working on it and I need to do at least one day of class (This did not happen last time so try, try again) .

Execute - I will do more walking this week and more me time to de-stress

Plan/Prepare for the coming week! - I need to hit the grocery store to get all of my rainbow. The rainbow challenge is one of my favorites. I need to get paperwork for work completed this weekend. I also need to prepare a workout to build up my shoulders. Hubby would like me not have such boney shoulders.

Act with consistency - 7 days of cardio & at least 2-3 days of strength. I need to get to bed at an earlier time. I need my sleep and I have not been getting the sleep I require.

Write - Well I would have liked to see a better result on the scale and new it is time to write about it.

Set a goal - Well I want to do better all the way around. Food, Fitness and Rest. I also want to work on my class this week. I have not been sitting down and working on it and I need to do at least one day of class.

Execute - I will do more walking this week so I can not only get more steps in but also burn more calories.

SMART - The Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely way to a slimmer me...

Specific ~ I have 7 pounds to lose to get back to my Mom status. How do I do that?

Measurable ~ I will begin measuring my food to have more accurate account of what I am eating. After reaching the master of maintenance I have to admit I got lazy with measuring my food. I paid the price by gaining some of that weight back and now I have to work to lose it again. Lesson learned!

Attainable ~ I know from attaining my goal once that this is more than attainable by tracking both nutrition and fitness. Having a workout program in place that interchanges both strength training (my weakness) and cardio(my love) will get me where I need to be.

Realistic ~ Life happens and no one is perfect. The reality is my weight loss will be a life long commitment. There is no real time off and that is not a curse but a commitment that I want for myself.

Timely ~ I have 12 weeks to reach my goal. Over that time I will plan out my workouts and take time for myself as well. Due to my job I get very little time for me so I am also planning some yoga and relaxation as well.
