Focusing on strength training

Thursday, November 18, 2010

I didn't sleep very well last night because my foot was really throbbing. It hurt worse I think because the dr kept poking at it yesterday. But I really wasn't too tired today. One thing I have noticed being on this high protein, low carb diet. I sure have more energy and I am not tired as much during the day as I used too.

I did the Leslie Sansone Firm Walk DVD today. It is mainly strength training. The warm-up was a slow walk. I did 50 minutes when I normally only do about 20 minutes.

I only got just over 6000 steps as of now. I don't think I will be getting to 10000 - I will evaluate that goal.

Thurs 11/18

New Goals:

1) Blessings
I am blessed to live in Colorado. I love the mountains in the horizon.

2) Low carb diet started on 11-15-10.

3) Exercise Variation

4) 10,000 steps a day -- and I will make sure I get that each day except Sun which will be a rest day. emoticon

5) 9+ glasses of water emoticon

6) Finally I don't want to gain at Thanksgiving!

Goals continued:

1. Stay within calorie limit -- emoticon
--track EVERYTHING on SP . emoticon

2. Daily exercise routine
-- Exercise before SP, then log it emoticon
-- knee physical therapy (3 times a week) -- emoticon
--strength training a different set of muscles ea day emoticon

3. Blog daily, even if it is short - emoticon

My original goal of reaching 229 by 11/20 seems unrealistic now since I have only lost 2.5 lbs this month. My new goal is 235 by 11/30.
9/25 = 242.5
10/2 = 241.75
10/12 = 240.5
10/19 = 239.75
11/2 = 240.
11/9 = 238.5
11/16 = 236.5
