Keeping track

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

In an effort to keep myself honest, I am going to try to blog more frequently about the goals I set. Blogging is not a goal, so if I don't make it, I am not worrying about that one.

Before I start on me - WOOOHOOOO!!!!
That kid that was in the wreck on Friday got HIRED by Walt Disney World and ACCEPTED to the Disney University! OMG!!!! That has been a dream of his for several years - he MADE it!

Seriously, I am about to cry I am SO proud!

He had to do an online interview and a phone interview (in which the phone turned off) and HE MADE IT!

that is so cool

So to recap the task at hand:
1 – burn 550 more calories a day than I consume. Treadmill is about 250 for a run, So I have an extra 300 to burn EVERY DAY.

Started the day with Coach Nicole. Evening spiraled out of control (worked until almost 8) and had 3 glasses of wine with dinner - YIKES! Started well, not so good of a finish. Need to correct today.

2 – Run 3+ times per week. Running in a few minutes, did not make it to the treadmill last night

4 – EVERY morning:
Crunches + 5 (5 more than the day before) , Pushups +5, Jump rope 5 minutes, 10 minute with Coach Nicole or another Spark video, 20 minutes yoga
Did 10 mins of video, did not do the rest. Again need some correction

5 – Get some measuring cups to travel with. Yep, gonna get honest about restaurant food! Calories will be in the bottom 100 of my range.

Going to the store after work tonight.

So in all, yesterday was not so successful. Ok, it was really bad. Tonight when I get out of work I am going to the store for a jump rope, measuring cups and maybe even a mini scale. Then I will come back and work out. I am going to try to work off some of last night this morning too. Already did my crunches and some stretching. Heading to the treadmill now...

    Congrats to your son! Super exciting news!

    Even if you did not meet all your goals yesterday you remained accountable to them and thats part of what keeps us going, that what shows you care and have the desire to succeed. It's when a person chooses not to be accountable even afterwards that it time to worry.

    Don't beat yourself up too much. It looks like you made a decent start yesterday so it wasn't a complete loss. It wasn't as though you spent the entire day on the couch eating potato chips.
