January Goals:

ACTUALLY start, instead of the "good for 3 days then stop again" thing I've been doing
Lose 7 pounds
Drink only water / cut out the diet soda
Only have a treat if I have the calories left
Don't skip my fitness class unless I absolutely have to because of something else going on


*Workout Log:

Jan 02: First official day, TPU
Jan 03: Non workout day
Jan 04: TPU
Jan 05: Non workout day, but I took a walk with my daughter to the grocery store for bread, 1.7 miles round trip
Jan 06: TPU
Jan 07: Non workout day, but I took the extra (optional) Saturday class at the same place I take TPU. Kicked my butt! Was also 1 hour, but different stuff from TPU. Calorie count was bad due to unexpected company taking us out for dinner. Only ate half my portion though!
Jan 08: Non workout day. Didn't do any extra due to being out of town visiting. Calorie count was terrible!
Jan 09: Might have to skip TPU tonight because of having way too much to do that didn't get done over the weekend. We'll see what happens.

*My fitness class in Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I'll try to get some activity in the other days, but it's not manditory for me just yet. I'm just starting back at this after an unplanned year "off". The class is called Total Pump Up, which I'll shorten to TPU, and is one hour of light weight training along with just enough cardio to keep the heart rate up. Burns roughly 500 calories and works every muscle group.

January's Goal's

Start every day with stretching or yoga.
Stop eating chocolates and crap at the office.
Not lose it mentally
Make it through a Bikram session!
I have no idea what my weight loss goal should be since I have been away from the game for a year now. I hope I will lose without trying too hard due to the stress so I am just going to see what happens and re-evaluate for February.

January's Workout/progress Log:


Jan 05: 2 power walk breaks at work and today is my Bikram yoga research day. I am so nervous about this but in a good way.
Jan 06: 2 power walks, office yoga, and going to a friends tonight for a healthy home cooked meal.
Jan 07: I spent both Sat. and Sun. moving a bunch of stuff around the house
Jan 08: and didn't get an actual workout in but I was sweating so I will count it as half a workout at least.
Jan 09: 2 power walks, I was sick so that was it.
Jan 10: 2 power walks, still not 100%
Jan 11: 2 power walks, office yoga. I am having a hard time staying on track this week with stress and sickness but still motivated so I will make it through!

Jan 01: I was bad...but dinner made me realize I need to stop giving in and learn to excuse myself from eating at Texas Roadhouse
Jan 02: 20 minute stretch DVD, some extra stair climbing.... messed up on food became frustrated, nervous and ate bad late. Dusting myself off tomorrow I'll do better!
Jan 03:
Jan 04: Well, I ran up 3 flights of stairs and walked down 3 flights of stairs... that was about it. I was too tired to do anything else. How people who have 12 hour shifts day after day manage exercise, I will never know..
Jan 05: Slept...played catch up with my bed =\ I know. Bad way to go. On the positive, I've lost 2lbs all ready though
Jan 06: Only squeezed in a few crunches, and some floor exercise...
Jan 07: Noted the scale says I weigh 282, so I've lost 3lbs =) Exercise plan today 58 minutes with Richard, and 20 minute stretch dvd
Jan 08: 30 crunches, ran up and down the stairs 4 times to get my heart rate elevated for 20 minute stretch DVD. Tomorrow, I'm going to face my fears and return to Anytime Fitness (years membership just kind of been... wasted)
Jan 09: 12 hour shift at ER, too tired to workout >.<
Jan 10: 12 hour shift/explosion at ER...barely could make it home without crashing, so tired.
Jan 11: Day of rest, and discovery of hitting 277 on scale (8lb loss so far this month)
Jan 12: Sweatin to the Oldies 2, and stretch dvd...

There's some great journal entries in here. Everyone keep it up! I fell off the saddle for four days+ and i feel usually would beat myself up over it but coming here helps me put things in perspective... I think most of us have "those days" where we don't get as much done as we hope. I'm working to get myself re-motivated and back in the saddle again.

How is everyone doing? ... I haven't met the weight target yet (76 not 75).... but I'm losing and have kept to the water and exercise goal ... still need coffee .... but you can't win 'em all .... and coffee keeps me sane at times ...

I'll take losing 2 kgs a month though ... and I feel a lot healthier than I did at at the beginning of the month
