Time and Commitments

Monday, March 19, 2007

I was out of town for a few days and spent a lot of time thinking about the time I have and how I spend the hours of each day.
I decided that I was better of using one of the two hours I was spending on sparks everyday to exercise, so I dropped out of number of the teams I belonged to. I did that yesterday, and it helped considerably. I also made a mental list of household chores and how to accomplish so much in such a small amount of time... (I have been working more with my BF, thus have less time to do household chores) .. my solution was, that if I set up every other day for dusting, vacuuming, etc, and do my strength training on the same days, it would be a reminder to do both, and basically did the same thing for all my household chores and exercises... If I do chores to music, I dance... thus more cardio...
I am serious about loosing this last 10 to 15 pounds...
I am also going to talk to my doctor about help with a stop smoking program. Yes I am a smoker, and I need to stop, there is will, but panic, because when i stopped for three years back in the 80's I gained 50 pounds... and after all this hard work loosing and getting back in shape I don't want to do that again!
I have some goals for this week
1) exercise every day, and get my cardio back up to two 30 minute cardio workouts a day
2) get my fruit intake back to 2 a day
3) limit carbs after 3 P.M.
4) get all the cleaning done that I could not do while I was under Doctors orders for no exercise
5) reward myself with a tanning subscription to a local tanning salon
See you next week folks!

    Mag..just a reminder that you are probably in a much better place to quit smoking than you were a few years back. Just the act of quitting doesn't make you gain weight...the oral fixation and needing something in your hands are what is usually every quitter's downfall. Doing something to repalce that addiction is why so many ex-smokers gain weight because they begin munching to have something in theri hands or mouth all the time. USe a patch to help with the actual nicotine cravings and have a gameplan in place to replace that bad habit with a good one i.e.: everytime you feel the craving for a cigarette, work out instead. You can do it, I know you can..because if you can lose all that weight you can do anything!
