November 8, 2014-Week 1 Results

Saturday, November 08, 2014

Good Morning Spark friends!

A quick review of my goals this month:
-meet calories
-exercise
-drink water
-stretch
-burn calories
-walk

My results for the first week in November are as follows:

My first, goal this month is meeting my calories. The range of my calories is 1200-1400 per day. I have added up my daily calories and averaged them out for this week. This weeks calorie range came out to be 1245. I have met my goal of staying within my calories.

My second, goal this month is exercising. I have been exercising like a mad woman this week. I added up my exercise minutes for this week and the total came out to be 172 minutes. 172 minutes of exercises is pretty good but I would of like to do better. There was a few days this week when I only exercised for 20 minutes or less. I am proud of myself for exercising as much as I did but I am going to try to exercise more next week.

My third, goal this month is to drink water. The end result of the waters that I drank this week is 25 cups. I feel really good about those results because that is where I wanted to be. I hope to do as good or even better with this goal next week.

My fourth, goal this month is to keep track of how many minutes that I have stretched. Stretching is really important for my body because they keep me limber and minimize my pain level. I stretched a total of 62 minutes this week. As I added up my stretching minutes I was shocked to find out that I spent an hour in just doing stretches.

My fifth, goal this month is to burn as many calories as I can. the calories that I burned this week is 765. Burning 765 calories in one week is absolutely amazing! I am really proud of myself for burning that many calories.

My sixth, and final goal is to get in as many steps per day as possible. Being that I am physically disabled walking is very hard for me to do. I try to make walking as much as I can daily priority. the total steps that I walked this week is 1,314. 1,314 steps might not sound like a lot but to me that is a huge goal. Next week I am going to try to increase that number a little more.

Overall, I think that I did really good reaching my goals this week. Even though I would like to improve some things I feel that I am on the right track. I hope that everyone had a great first week of November as well! Have a great day everyone!

Today's Motivation

Friday, November 07, 2014

Actually , one of my past failures is today's motivation . In the past I have started out strong for the first week of every month when it came to exercising . Unfortunately though by the second week of the month my workouts seem to dwindle and eventually fall by the waste side . Before I know it I am hardly exercising at all. So I am making a vow to myself to exercise 6 days out of the week for at least 10 minutes and do at least 1 set of my stretches daily . I am making this vow to myself in hopes on staying focus , staying active and staying on track when it comes to reaching my goals .

    That is a common struggle. I suffer from it too but I am going to work on it as one of my goals.

Sunday Positives

Monday, November 03, 2014

I had pretty good day on Sunday. I got to stay in my warm house and watch movies all day. In the midst of relaxing managed to accomplish some goals . The first goal that I accomplished was meeting my my calorie ranges. Picking healthy food options and reading the nutrition labels on the containers is what I give credit to in reaching that goal . The second , goal that I accomplished was meeting my water intake goal . I believe that I was able to accomplish this goal because I constantly had a bottle of water next to me. The third goal that I accomplished was my workout . I put some aside for myself and worked out I even doubled my time from the day before . As for my daily walks I came really close to reaching that goal. Even though I just missed my mark I am still happy with my progress. Accomplishing all of these goals has given me a pretty start to my week and the motivation to keep pushing to accomplish my goals for the rest of the week ahead .

I'm so hungery what do I do?

Saturday, October 18, 2014

For the past week or two I have been having these really strong hunger pangs.. I am eating every two hrs instead of my usual three and when I feel like this I crave foods high in carbs and sugar . I went to my dr. to talk to him about this and he did some blood work . The only thing he could tell me about that was that my cholesterol is a little high which is unusual for. me. Theses feeling are new to me and are stressing me out what do I do?

    I am not sure how much protein you are eating but I am guessing maybe you need to add a little more into your diet. I went to a diet doctor and they told me that you need to make sure you eat protein five times a day. Which to me seemed like a ton but, I am doing it and it seems to be working for me so maybe it will help you as well. Maybe if you like yogurt, nuts, eggs string cheeses try eating those in between meals and see it that helps at all. Peanut butter is another good one. Or maybe the protein mixes? Just some ideas hope they help some.

    Those craving are killers, I have them often and I haven't really found anything to stop them. Just hang in there.

    I get into moments like you describe, where no matter how healthy I'm eating I just feel like I'm starving. I've found this is when I need to eat more lean proteins than anything else. Protein takes longer to digest than carbs, so you essentially feel full longer since it's still in your stomach longer. My go to's are boiled eggs, yogurt, string cheese, pecans, and nature valley's protein bars. Hope that helps.
