New week

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Taking a 4.5 mile walk with the dog down a new beautiful fall path Sunday helped me get back into it. Also, I've been very depressed and know that exercise and eating healthy do make me feel better and I need to focus on that. Yesterday I got my bands out and did a full body strength training workout and then rode my bike to work for the first time in months. I'm quite sore this morning which means I did work my body harder :)

I am getting back into the calorie cycling that my friend taught me in 2008. Luckily my plan is still on my front spark page. I went through my notes on my nutrition logs and tagged every day what calorie number i need to hit around for each day this week to help me stay focused. i also will tag below it what i actually ate and what the difference was.

Even though I have been walking a lot, without the bike riding, i have not been working my heart out at ALL and I really need to keep my heart healthy. I need to add jogging with Lucy or figure out a way to ride my bike and/or sign back up for the gym at work. I have trouble getting away to a gym or bike riding because Brett's not here to help with the dog who has bad separation anxiety. So it's a challenge to do anything without her. but i will think about ways i can get my heart rate up WITH Lucy. at least till Brett gets back.

I won't hit my 135 goal by Dec 19th (my birthday) but I am hoping to at least get in the 140's if not by 145 which is about 10 lbs away. the 140s are about 6 lbs away.
Right now, I need to just focus on logging every day and staying in my calorie range. First goal is to get consistant again.

    Consistency will really give you those results, great plan! Can you start with short intervals of a faster pace with the dog?
