Weekly Recap

Revisiting my goals:

  1. Lots of water and vitamins daily - ACCOMPLISHED
  2. Eat 2000 healthy calories per day - FAILED (excellent until the night of my birthday and the entire day after - I love to eat)
  3. 40 push-ups everyday - ACCOMPLISHED
  4. Walk the dogs 1.2 miles everyday - FAILED (it rained yesterday when I wanted to walk them, but we did the other 6 days)
  5. 5 days of 1 hour cardio sessions - ACCOMPLISHED (turbo kickboxing, body attack, water aerobics, zumba, in the zone - a new mix of every crazy tv exercise infomercial)
  6. 2 days with weight training - EXCEEDED (3 bodypump classes)

Feeling pretty good considering all the birthday cake and the fact that I had to cut water aerobics short the other day. I also feel good that hopefully by the end of the weekend baby girl's room should be finished paint wise. I am also proud that I picked out baby furniture and got it ordered.

Next week's goals will have to change. Actually, the next 2 weeks. Going home to see our families. There will be 2 solid days of driving in there so I won't be able to exercise like I have been. I can take my workout dvd for the days I am at my folk's house. We have not seen our families since the holidays. Telling them we were having a baby has all been done with pictures via the internet, emails and phone calls. This will be the first they have seen us. What a difference 6 months make.

So my goals this week are:

  1. Vitamins and water daily
  2. Walk the dogs 1.2 miles 5 days
  3. Driving days to stop every 2 hours and walk a little (doc orders)
  4. Do not over eat too much, I do not want my stomach to hurt
  5. 40 push-ups everyday
  6. 3 days of 1 hour cardio sessions
  7. 1 day of weight training

I am excited to see friends and family. It is hard sometimes that everyone we are related to lives so far away. I especially cannot wait to see my grandpa! He is so cute and perfect. You know that person you put on a pedestal and can do no wrong in your mind? That is my grandpa. And he does not travel so to see him, I have to go home. I will try to post while gone so stay tuned...

I think instead of "Failed" you should put "Almost"... because you should count the fact that you DID put effort into it! (don't ya think?)

Great job on your goals!!

I hope you have a Fantasmatic Time with your family and friends and cute little grandpa! That's what's it's all about!!! Have fun!

Hmmm, good idea to set up weekly goals. Think tomorrow I will set up mine for the week and see how well I can do. Congrats to you. Youve done a great job. I enjoy reading all your posts!

Failed seems so harsh. I also tend to make my goals 6 days a week, so I can exceed but I can also allow for life to happen, I usually exceed but I don't beat myself up when I can't. Keep up the good work and your goals for this week still look good, I don't envy you the 2 days of driving :(

agree about the failed thing...think it's 50 percent or less is a failing grade.
You have more like a B plus or A minus. So, it's kind of an honor roll thing. I just got back from my trip. If you makeit a point to get your exercise in at a certain time of day every day, it happens.
Hang in there and keep setting goals.

If you can't let your hair down on special occasions, when can you?

Plus you have had plenty of exercise, so don't feel too guilty ;)
