Heading into week three...

Monday, November 02, 2009

Focus on getting your water intake to the minimum 8 glasses/day.
Track your calories.
Give up one thing that might be holding you back from your weight loss goals.
Get plenty of sleep each night.
Try a new workout.
Add 15% more minutes to your cardio total from week two.
Strength train! do a little something at least 3x this week.

These are my challenges for this week. Since I didn't lose OR gain last week, I have GOT to get serious this week. Or more serious. So here is what I'm going to do..
I will maintain my water intake.
I will continue to track my calories.
I will get at LEAST seven hours of sleep. This also ties into what I'm giving up this week: late night tv. I WILL be in bed by no later than 10:30. I can record whatever I want to watch if it goes later than that.
I will add 15% to my 242 minutes of cardio from last week. = 278.3 minutes
I will do a minimum of 20 minutes of strength training ever other day.
~need to find a new workout to try~

Here's to a productive week! Go team AMETHYST!!

    Well not gaining or losing is something I do need to learn how to do, I'm usually up down and all around so I never even know where I "should" be. Halloween always throws a wrench into it all so now that week three had begun just kick some A##! You can do it!

    Yay team Amethyst!

    When I get bored with my ST workouts, I go to runnersworld.com and search for some new ones in their archives...just a thought.

    I like how you phrased your goals as positive statements - I hope that helps you to stick with them and to feel good about what you are doing for you. Getting into HTC is a big motivator for me.....the Portland Marathon was so far away that saying I need to drop weight before then seems like forever, but HTC moves it up two months (I know, really just 6 weeks, but don't tell me that!)

    Have a great week!

    Given the treats that were probably surrounding you this week, no gain is quite the achievement! I feel like stealing this post - this is pretty much exactly what I should do this week. Here's to a more serious week!
    PS: I went to Superstore yesterday and got those chocolate PMS things. Hopefully I won't need it, but if I turn crazy again, I will for sure try it out! Thanks.
