Well…I should have been excited because…
I LOST 5.4 POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!
Yep…I sure did!
I weighed in at 187.2. YIPEE!!!!
I made my goal for February to get down to 185. I am pretty sure I am going to make that. I would LOVE to make it in the next two weeks! I just need to keep focused with my goals and press on.
This week’s meeting was all about moving more. They challenged us to move more in the month of February.
First, we needed to assess where we currently are in terms of exercise. They broke it down into categories according to how many activity points you get a week. Here are the three categories:
1-11 activity points: Sedentary
12-24 activity points: Moderately Active
25 or more activity points: Very Active
I currently fall into the Moderately Active category on most weeks. When I am training for a half marathon, I fall into the very active category. Maybe I need to train for another half!
This week, in order to move more, they asked us to schedule our workouts. Some people put them on their calendars while others just “know” when they are going to workout the next day.
Some good things about scheduling your workouts:
- If it is planned, you are more likely to do it.
- You plan your day around your workout, not your workout around your day.
- You are prepared. If you know you are going to the gym after work, you will have everything you need.
- You will be more likely to do the planned workout versus just going home and sitting on the couch.
- If you miss your workout, it will be like missing an appointment.
These are just a few reasons why it is important to plan your workouts ahead of time.
This week, I am challenging myself to workout one more day than I did last week. Last week I did three days. This week, I am going for four!
Here is my plan:
Tuesday: Workout after work before dinner.
Wednesday: Take Maggie for a short walk (does not count as a “workout”)
Thursday: Workout as soon as I get home before dinner.
Saturday: Workout before lunch
Sunday: Workout after church
Now that I have it planned, I hope I am more likely to do it.
Do you plan your workouts? Share with us how you will workout just a little more than you did last week!
I am hosting another Dietbet that starts this weekend. Won’t you consider joining us? EVERYONE who loses 4% of their starting weight WINS a portion of the pot. I really enjoyed the last one and many people said it was just what they needed to stay motivated and lose some of the weight they have been carrying around for months!
