Plan for Defying Gravity

Plan for Defying Gravity
Cardio: Since I have had so much trouble re-establish the exercise habit, I joined the 10 minute a day challenge. I am going to plan 3 sessions of cardio 15 minutes each for the WEC. This should push me but not be impossible to achieve.

Meditation: I don’t have any trouble planning relaxation time for myself. My difficulty lies in sometimes forgoing the planned relaxation in order to do some other, impromptu activity. Fifteen minutes seems like a good number to do something just for me each day. It is long enough to count but not so lengthy that it would keep me from other activities.

Strength Training: I have really started to like the kettle bells. I am going to do the kettle bell routine on Saturday and Monday. The routine is 10 minutes with a warm up and cool down. There are 6 or 7 different exercises that are incorporated in the routine. The only exercise I go light on or skip is the squat as it is really painful to my left knee.

Sleep: I am having trouble with my Fitbit so my sleep data is not accurate. I tend to sleep an average of 5 and a half to 6 and a half hours each night. Often the sleep is broken because I will go to bed early, sleep and then get up for a few hours and then go back to sleep. When I really think about it and try to change the pattern I have some success. If I can stay up until 9:30 or 10:00, I have a better chance of sleeping a straight 6 hours. During the WEC I am going to stay up, set the sleep timer on the TV and track the number of hours I sleep.

Breakfast for each day of WEC will consist of ½ bagel or biscuit, 2 slices of bacon or turkey sausage, one egg and a sliced tomato.

Lunch and Dinner will be the meals that are delivered by Fit Fixins with the exception of Saturday evening when I am going to a birthday party.
