My Accountability - Update for 1/10/10

Monday, January 11, 2010

My biggest downfall in 2009 was not being consistent with tracking my food and being accountable for what I am eating. This is the 3rd day of the year and I started this full court press on eating better and tracking on Monday 12/28. So after a week I can already feel the difference. I just feel so much better overall and have better concentration and a better mood.

My goals for 2010 include
1. Tracking Daily
2. Going to the Y 2-3 nights a week and Strength Training 2-3 days a week.
3. Cardio of at least 30 minutes every day even if it’s just walking
4. Getting back to the 130’s.

As part of my accountability for 2010 I plan to post here to my blog daily with my calories and cardio/exercise for the day.

Daily calorie range for food is 1,750 - 2,100 a day. (Upped again)
Burn a total of 4750 calories (I did order a new HRM so I should be able to post actuals once that comes in)

Sunday 1/10:
45 minutes on Elliptical – 400 calories
40 minutes running 3 miles (I'm slow) - 300 calories
I may jump in the EA Active and goof around
Need to do 25 pushups

    I struggle with the eating right. Today I exercised. My eating could be better but it is not completely out of control. I appreciate your desire to be accountable and I hope it works for you. Keep it up and best wishes. I will look for your blog in the near future. Have a great week.
