Streak Day 24

Thursday, March 28, 2013

This week is going great and I have my Fitbit One to thank for that. This makes it so much easier because now I know how much I am moving and because it sync to SP I no longer have to figure out how to track my efforts. I need to work on getting better and longer sleep patterns though because at this point I am only getting about 6.5 hours a night.

Exercise this week has really jumped because I have been doing different workouts and I tend to run them all the way through which is about 70 minutes. Today I only did 15 minutes of cardio and 2 10 minute arm ST workouts because my legs are sore and I had to do 100 squats for the squat challenge that I started last week. We went for a 2.5 mile walk/run this evening as well so I got plenty of steps and cardio in anyways. I am hoping that we will continue to go out every evening for either a walk or a run as I could really use all the cardio I can get so I can lose this weight.

Week 5 is coming to a close and we are only 3 weeks away from the end of my 5% challenge. I am no where near meeting my 5% loss right now but if everything keeps going as it is right now then I should see a pretty good loss by the end of week 8. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my fitbit on!

    Congrats on the increased workouts! Sleep is really important, but you are already focusing on that emoticon Who is the "we" you go for walks/runs with? Are they willing to make it a daily thing? Being accountable to another person always helps me :) emoticon emoticon

    And remember there are other ways to measure success. How do you feel? How are your clothes fitting? It is not only about the loss of weight.
    BTW, the FB is really addicting, isn't it?!

    you should do measurements too. when I increase or change my workouts, weight is going up or stays the same , but the numbers on measurements are smaller. anyway , well done !
