Goals for 7/27 - 8/2

Monday, July 27, 2009

“Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.” Og Mandino

I failed miserably last week in meeting my goals. The thing I love about blogging is your are accountable for the good days and the bad and last week there were plenty of bad days! I only ran twice and I got in one good bike ride.....that is all!!! My knee was NOT feeling well and even then I did not do my PT exercises as I should nor did I use my foam roller every day. I need to make using that roller a number one priority. I cannot expect my knee to feel better if I am not doing everything I can to help the situation. Even though last week i did not reach my goals, I feel on top of the world! I have never felt happier and I am so pleased with my body and how my weight loss is going.

This weekend I was featured as a Former Fat Girl of the Week on a weight loss blog! You can see my before and after pics and read the blog here....


I was so honored and seeing my pictures on another page gave me a MUCH needed dose of Monday motivation!!

My plan for this week is as follows.....

Goals for the week of 7/27- 8/2

1. MUST do PT exercises twice a day
2. Use my foam roller 3 times a day
3. Ice 2 times a day
4. Drink 1 gallon of water a day
5. ST Upper body 3 times
6. Complete 8 miles of running, and 7 miles of walking - 15 miles total
7. Bike 20 miles for the week
8. Complete 200 pushups
9. Log foods each day and maintain at least a 500 caloric deficit
10. Burn 2,000 calories for the week

Workout schedule for the week -

Monday - Rest knee - day off
Tuesday - Run 3, Walk 3 miles
Wednesday - Bike 10 miles, ST
Thursday - Run 2 miles, Walk 2 miles
Thursday - Bike 10 miles, ST

    Congrats on all your success and your reccent recognition. You are definitely an inspiration. I joined Operation Fat Blaster thanks to visiting your link and plan to finally start blogging about my weight loss. I read your profile and share a similar goal. Eventhough I have been yo-yoing overweight my whole life, being at my very heaviest and approaching my 30th birthday it's time to take action. I have 20 weeks from today and my goal is to loose 40 lbs so I can be a hot mama on my big night. I also wanted to say congrats on all your races. I was never a runner by any means and last summer I decided to do the Komen Race for the Cure 5k and even captained a team from my gym hoping the training would help me loose weight. It was such a sense of accomplishment. I need to get on the ball and get signed up for some races. (I am also in the Houston area) Best of luck with your future races and all your fitness goals. emoticon

    Jen we all have weeks like that where we are getingy ready to hold a pity party. I actually had a week like that and really struggled with my goals in july. I blogged about it yesterday. the comments on my blog advised me to just forget it and move on. Look at all the positive things I do and not look at the negatives so much. I would give you the same advise. Keep it going and be strong!!!!

    Even though you didn't meet your goals, I'm sure you still did waaay more than most people achieve in a week! I agree with Patty - sometimes we need a break to get us re-invigorated again. Here's to a fabulous week!!

    P.S. - nice job on being the featured "loser" - you're always a winner in my book!

    So glad to hear you're feeling better! I think you work so hard at times, you don't give yourself a break! It might be time, so don't look at it as failure, but as a few choices that could have been better! Girly, you're human, not super-human and that's part of the reason I love ya!
    Anyways, great reminders, as always!
