Mel-Issa's slow road to recovery and improvement

Recommended Posts

I am in need of some desperate help to be held accountable.  I need to make these changes stick this year.  So here is what I have come up with for a challenge:

 

1) Get your butt moving

               This means that everyday I will will get up and move continuously for a minimum of 30 minutes.  It can be mall walking, walking outside, doing some sort of beginning running program or walking in place.  I need to break out in a sweat, no matter the activity.

 

2) Get your body stronger

                This means that three times per week I will be doing some bodyweight exercises.  I will follow the beginner body weight workout, minus the walking lunges (I HATE lunges).  I will start out with only doing one circuit per day workout and add as I go am successful from there, but by the end of the 6 weeks, I want to be able to do 3 circuits three times per week. 

 

3) Get your stuff logged

                Since I am on a weight loss pill, I need to make sure that I am logging all of my food, which I am pretty good at, but I haven't been logging everything that I am drinking.  Nor have I been getting enought plain water in, so I am going to make sure I focus on that again.  I hate logging but I have seen that when I don't, I make poor choices and eat way to much, so I have to make sure I am doing it.

 

4) Get your veggies and fruits in

                 I need to work on increasing this per doctor.  So, I am going to work on adding 1 serving of fruit or veggies per day.

 

I am not sure if I want to have it be pass/fail or if there will actually be grading involved.  I will post about that later.  But there it is - my plan for the next 6 weeks.  If you read this and don't see me post daily on all 4 of these goals, please harass me.  Send me a msg, post on the thread, post on my battle log(where all of this is posted also), come to chat and bug me, email me(if you have my email), call/text me(if you have my phone number), just do something to force me to be honest about what I am doing and helping to hold me accountable.

 

Also, if you have any other suggestions as to how to help me stay accountable, it would be greatly appreciated.

Even though the challenge hasn't officially started, I have been working on these three goals.

 

Update from 1/3/15:

1)Get your butt moving - I had to get a phone from my brother for my oldest daughter, so we met at the mall of america  Once that was done, I walked around for about 20 minutes, working up a little sweat.  :)

 

2)Get your body stronger - Nothing done for this yet

 

3) Get your stuff logged - Everything that touched my mouth went on my log for MFP.  That includes all of the Crystal light I drank.  PLUS I drank 2 normal glasses of water!

 

4) Get your veggies and fruits in - I did add collard greens to dinner last night for my one serving.  :)

 

I still haven't figured out if I want this to be pass/fail or lettered grading but I am going to comit to making sure I post updated for each day at least once a week. I am going to try to get on here daily to write about the previous day.  Overall yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me.  :)
