Lock myself in...

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

In an attempt to stay motivated I have been focusing on yummy healthier food options and tracking my portions. I have lost about 10lbs but I am at this point where the scale is giving me "the stinkeye" again! I think I really need to lock into some tangible goals for the gym. I go to the gym 3 times a week, workout in the pool 2 times a week but I dont know when to push myself harder. I go until I feel I cant go anymore... but is it enough?? for now??

I have slowly been increasing my workouts by intensity and time but I think if I write it down it will help my progress. I usually forget how long I was on a machine or how far I pushed myself. But maybe if I just blog it I can keep track and challenge myself to do more in a few weeks.

Goal for June:
Bike - 15 miles a week (this is do-able)
Elliptical - 30+ minutes a week (might be a challenge)
Swimming Exercises - 2 hours a week (what I look forward to the most)

Hopefully this works! emoticon

    Also, make sure you are eating and drinking enough water! Water is a big deal for resetting your metabolism, what goes in... must come out! xoxo

    Does your gym have any group fitness classes? I'm a class junkie now. The instructor's are motivating like a trainer would be. Glad you have some goals set. I'm terrible at setting goals, but I'm good that if I put it on my calendar I will do it. Exercise is on my calendar just like any other appointment and I don't let anything get in the way. Good luck meeting your goals and have fun!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
