Roxy changes her focus

Recommended Posts

I love walking outside..and have been avoiding the treadmill :redface-new:  When it is nice I go out at lunch at work then again after dinner. Definitely easier to get steps in then. Winter is my weakest season by far. I hide! I hate the cold, and get to feeling so down. I should make it a point to use the treadmill once per week just to make it a habit even if the weather is good.

Week 5 day 2 and 3:

No exercise tues. upper body work out wednesday. Not enough steps either day, 6595 and 7726.

Ate okay tuesday. Ate a pizza wednesday. After eating the pizza for lunch I only ate a tiny dinner at bed time. Time to cut down on the calories again...eating too much this week.

Still no meditation. I think I will try lying in corpse pose to meditate rather than finding time to sit somewhere. I can then meditate every night when the tv goes off.

 

Week 5 calorie tracking:

Monday- 1591

Tuesday- 1488

Wednesday- 2423

 

The work out:

standing cross knee crunch- 15 reps per side, 2 sets

bicep curl - used thin green band, 15 reps per side, 2 sets

triceps extension - used thin green band, 15 reps per side, 2 sets

bench press - used 2 5lb dumbbells, 15 reps per side, 2 sets

dumbbell rows - 5lb dumbbell, 15 reps per side, 2 sets

arm raises - used thin green band, 15 reps per side, 2 sets

*these were done as a big circuit with little to no rest between sets.

 

The Goals Tally:

1) This has two parts that work together.
(1) Do not complain about life. (no grumbling about work, no griping about someone or something) 28/42
(2) Live with gratitude. (find something positive in each day to be grateful for, the more things the better) 28/42
2) Create a morning ritual. (stretch/yoga, walk, etc.) 20/42
3) Love, Nurture, and Honor myself. 30/42
4) Find opportunities through every day to smile. Smile more! 30/42

5) Meditate/ Quiet time alone. 13/42
6) Maintain (improve) Health; 2 part to this one

(1) stick with weight watchers simply filling plan foods for a total calorie intake of 1300-1400 6x/week with 2000 on a treat day. Off plan foods are allowed as long as the weight watchers points are tracked and the weekly total does not exceed 49. (But the lower this number stays the better.) 23/42

(2) walk 10,500 steps 5 days per week (cardio) with body weight/free weight work out 2x/week 8/30; 8/14

Week 5 day 4-7:

Slacked on posting...so now I get to try and remember what happened. :(

Friday was a bad food day, so Sat and Sun I ate lower calorie than usual.

No Exercise at all.

Also no meditation or stretching.

But I have stayed positive and complain very little now a days. I find something to be happy about and happy with myself about most days too. I smile everyday, but that is easy when you have a toddler.

 

Weekly wrap up-

Challenge Wrap-up

 

I feel terrific about this challenge. This is the best I have done yet, I think. Let me break it down...

 

1) This has two parts that work together. 93%
(1) Do not complain about life. (no grumbling about work, no griping about someone or something) 39/42
(2) Live with gratitude. (find something positive in each day to be grateful for, the more things the better) 39/42
 

*I feel great about this one. I have learned to listen to others complaints without agreeing and adding to them. I can now discuss my day without it being complaint oriented. My discussions are not always positive, but they are "matter or fact"...it is what it is.  I have always been grateful for my life  but adding this in was to get me to more conscious about it, and I think I am.

 

2) Create a morning ritual. (stretch/yoga, walk, etc.) 25/42   60%
 

*This one needs work. I am not a morning person, so getting up early to stretch was not easy. I prefer to get up with the sun, and my work schedule does not accommodate that. But I only need to get up about 20mins earlier to get everything done I would like too. This is something to keep working on.

 

3) Love, Nurture, and Honor myself. 41/42 98%
 

*I have terrible self esteem. That is honestly my biggest weakness, I think. So I think this went well. I use to look at myself and beat myself up for my looks or appearance and tell myself I was just realistic or honest. But I have learned that this is not actually true. I now can look at myself and find something I like. Something I am happy with. Still have some work to do, but definite improvement.

 

4) Find opportunities through every day to smile. Smile more! 41/42  98%

 

*This one is almost easy...ALMOST. Having (mostly) good people around you makes smilling easy. So does having a goofy 3yr old. Learning to not let the negative people around me get me down has been part of this goal. Also just learning to smile and not get stressed.

 

5) Meditate/ Quiet time alone. 18/42 43%

 

*This one needs a lot of work. I believe this is something worth pursuing. Will keep trying to accomplish this one.
 

 

6) Maintain (improve) Health; 2 part to this one

(1) stick with weight watchers simply filling plan foods for a total calorie intake of 1300-1400 6x/week with 2000 on a treat day. Off plan foods are allowed as long as the weight watchers points are tracked and the weekly total does not exceed 49. (But the lower this number stays the better.) 29/42 70%

(2) walk 10,500 steps 5 days per week (cardio) with body weight/free weight work out 2x/week 12/30  40%; 8/14 57%

 

*Well we all know that this is the key to weight loss and strength. So this will become a real focus again. Now that I have learned ways to find inner peace and happiness I can refocus on these. I am forcing myself to wear my jeans that are a little snug as to remind me of what I need to do. So far so good. All I want to do today is stand up (because sitting is uncomfortable, LOL.) and not eat (because where am I going to find room for food. :) ).

 

See everyone next challenge. :eagerness:
