Reigniting my Spark
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
I read an ad for Nike that said, "Yesterday, you said tomorrow" and it reminded me of how, for the last few months of my pregnancy, I kept saying "I will go to the gym tomorrow" and how tomorrow never came. This morning I woke up, weighed myself (10 pounds down from last week's pregnancy weight) and set about resetting things on Sparkpeople. I'm now back in Stage 2, I've no "streaks" and I have a new set of caloric goals for the day. (1200-1550) I also have a new cardio plan that requires me to burn about a third of the calories that I'm used to, for now. My jogging stroller handles like a dream so, once I'm allowed to walk for more that 15-30 minutes at a time, I'll readjust.
This week's goals:
Drink a MINIMUM of 8 glasses of water. - The lactation consultant says this is a priority if I want to continue feeding Emily breast milk. I do. So I will drink.
Eat a MINIMUM of 5 fruits and/or vegetables.
Walk 15 -30 minutes on three different days.
Water - I drank 9 glasses!
Fruit/Veggies - I had 5 servings.
Walk - not today
Track - done! Unfortunately, I ate a cookie at Timmy's that I thought I'd entered and it turns out the program glitched. At any rate, I had another snack thinking that I was way under and now I'm over. 178.
Tomorrow, I'll be more careful. I have really great motivation for being an example of health.
