November Goals: My "week" schedule will run Sun-Sat
Fitness - Begin some cardio - exerbike/dogplay-walk 3x/week
Stretching - 5x week/ 20 min minimum
Nutrition - Get in my Magnesium and Selenium requirements 5x/week
3 Freggies a day
Personal - When the Fitbit arrives - get it up and running and tagged to Spark
Start a sleep diary to examine sleep hours/issues
I only met 2 of my goals for this month. I did purchase the Fitbit Zip and it is linked to SP. However, I am not a really big fan of it for a couple of reasons -
-daily walking around, just doing normal stuff - gets logged on SP as Fitness Minutes which they are not for me. I log exercise for fitness minutes. Thus I got a 500 fitness minute award....
but it was just steps in any normal day.
-the second thing about Fitbit Zip, I'm not crazy about is - it clocks an exorbitant amount of calories burned. It is no where close to what SP logs as calories burned. Some days it logged more calories burned than steps taken........
- the third thing I dislike is that to see yesterdays results I have to hook into a piece of technology to see that... I'm not all that "technology wired" so this means I can only see yesterday's results via a laptop/desktop as I do not have a cell phone that accommodates applications.
So I might have to "unlink" them - in order to get what I count as true Fitness minutes. I'm kinda wishing I had bought the one that also tracks sleep.
I have logged my sleep hours all month. I work Night shift - so some days I sleep ALOT. The SP sleep quiz says that we should be getting 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Well that works out to be 49-63 hours each week. Although my sleep tracks from 2 hours to 16 hours - I averaged 57-61 hours a week. This fits with the recommendation and I was surprised!
the other goals were not met mostly because I lost track of ... tracking. I have been caught up with foot/heel pain - it's consumed most of my thoughts and time over this past month. Deciding about an MRI vs a 2nd opinion and finding pain relief... etc..
The foot - I did have a 2nd opinion on the foot - seems like I have some structural changes happening to my foot and heel that will require a specialty shoe and then eventually surgery if it worsens. I'm certainly in no hurry for a foot surgery. So I am nursing the foot daily and making plans to buy new shoes.
As for the other goals - I'm counting them as unmet - because truthfully I can't go back and accurately figure out each day for each of those. I would say a definte 60% met - but missed tracking for a few stretches of days at a time.
For today - I am trying to get in the Christmas spirit - usually for me - I start with scents and lights. Hope it works!
Thanks for checking in and reading.
