Sweat it Out:
50 Minutes Weights
Well my Monday is starting off great. I tried to get to the gym right at 8 to meet my friend Kelly, didn’t get their until almost 8:15, cut my workout a little short so I could get Hanna to the Dr.’s office for her booster Flu Shot, and found out that it wasn’t until Wednesday! Boo! I am usually so good at remembering dates! I must have a lot going on in my head right now trying to get everything done for Christmas before next week! So much to do, this week should be interesting to say the least.
Since this is my last week to make any sort of dent in my diet, I’m going to make a few goals for this week so that I can stay focused:
- Drink 100 oz’s of water daily
- Gym it up! 6 days, NO EXCUSES. 1 down, 5 to go.
- Meal plan. Getting this done today.
- Eat my veggies. This has been lacking lately. Some sort of green everyday.
- Wear my bodybugg everyday.
I have found that if I wear my bodybugg to bed every night, it is WAY more accurate. This is a good thing considering I was getting a little frustrated not hitting my 3100 calorie burn on days that I would workout like a beast!
#WEverb11 December 12: Thrive. What was your healthiest habit of 2011? What would you like to change or do differently in 2012?
My healthiest habit was drinking water. It is pretty rare that I go a day without drinking at least three 32 oz. Nalgenes. I have actually had a good habit of drinking a lot of water since I was in my early 20′s. I get bladder infections pretty easily and if I don’t drink enough water, it is a definite that I will get one.
What I am doing differently, and will continue doing differently in 2012, is carbonated drinks. Soda and energy drink are out this next year. I’ve been doing really good lately, and as long as I keep a water bottle with me I seem to not be tempted to drink soda.
Sweet Tooth Challenge Update!
So far, this challenge has been helping me out this holiday season. I did have some frozen yogurt last week, but it wasn’t necessarily Ice Cream (details). I also drank about 8 oz. of Dr. Pepper when we had free Cafe Rio. I had forgotten my water bottle and gave into temptation. I’m not beating myself up. It happens, and it’s not the end of the world. The fact that I haven’t had any Egg Nog this year is a miracle! I shut my eyes past the displays at the store.
I purchased my Pea Protein (vegan protein powder) for the Vegan 21 day Kickstart, and I am excited to get started when I get back from Arizona!
Here’s to a successful holiday season so far!
How is your Holiday going? Are you busy, busy, busy?
