I think I achieved that goal this week. I drank lots of water, took my vitamin every day, exercised and kept moving, got sleep, and even vented about some personal frustrations that were bothering me via e-mail with friends.
My week went like this:
Monday - Walked 2.5 miles for work and another 2 at the gym
Tuesday - Walked 2.5 miles for work and did run/walk intervals on the treadmill - 2 miles
Wednesday - run/walk intervals on treadmill - 2 miles. Stairclimber - 5 minutes
Thursday - 500 meter row, 1 mile on treadmill, then did C25K D1/W1 on the treadmill
Friday - Walked 2.5 miles for work, 500 meter row, 1 mile on treadmill, then did C25K D2/W1 on the treadmill, followed by the stairclimber for 10 minutes
Saturday - 1 mile on treadmill, then did C25K D3/W1 on treadmill, then did another 1/2 mile on treadmill, then Parade
Sunday - 1 mile morning walk with dogs, 1 mile on treadmill, then did C25K D3/W1 on treadmill
This coming week is a big one. I go to Pennington on Wednesday for my first checkup appointment to see how I'm doing on the protein shake diet. According to the "what to expect at each visit" chart that I was given, this week they will check my weight, my blood pressure, my waist circumference, my vital signs, go over any new medications that I might be on (none for me), discuss any adverse events that have occurred (none so far, thank you Jesus!), and they'll give me more shakes for the next 2 weeks. I'm ecstatic because there will be no more strawberry and vanilla shakes!!!! I absolutely hated those!
I'm excited to see how I've done so far! I feel a difference in my clothes. I see a difference when I look in the mirror. I just hope that the scale reflects that come Wednesday!! We'll see!!
For this coming week my goals are simple..again:
- Gym workout ... everyday
- Stop weighing myself everyday...once a week only (Mondays)
- Drinks lots of water
- Guess who finally got an iPhone? It's about dang time huh? I switched from T-Mobile to Sprint and took advantage of Sprint's free iPhone for new accounts. I also get unlimited everything for $75/month.
- My sister joined the gym yesterday! Her work has a discount program with my gym which means she can join without signing a yearly contract and her cost is discounted. If she goes to the gym at least 12 times a month, she gets an even better discount! Sweet. Now all I have to do is convince her to stop smoking and start eating better! After banging out 2 miles on the treadmill, she had Rally's for lunch and a ham/cheese sandwich with Fritos and jalapeno cheddar dip for dinner. WTF? Get with it!
Have a great week!
