I don't know why I always think I don't have anything to say - and therefore don't blog. It seems like my blogs end up being longer than expected. Maybe I should tack on 'blog more' as a goal for this month. We'll see.

So I'm in Stage 2, Habit 6 of 6 of SP's Healthy Diet Habits. Yay me. Everything, up to now, has been pretty common-sense, and/or I've already adapted the habit into life. This week, the habits are bit more.. interesting to fit in.

Batch cook - I'm doing this today, preparing meals in advance for the week. I mentioned in my last blog that I needed to find a better balance in the evenings, after work, for meals and fitness and life in general. I usually spend Sundays preparing part of our meals, so it's not too much of a stretch to extend that to preparing more. We've got crock-potted carnitas on tap for evening meals, and Southwest Grilled (Broiled) Pork as well, along with baked sweet potatos and regular potatos for meals and snack. Salads are all portioned out (we're having spinach and mustard greens this week - love romaine, but we're branching out and trying new things). Steps in the right direction at least, and it should help save time in the evenings.

Exercise entirely in 10-15 min. blocks this week - Really? Ok, I'll give it a shot. Except, walking on Monday and Wednesday. I walk with Robin from SP, and/or my hubby if she can't make it. We do 2 miles in 45 minutes. I'll keep that up, and on the days we don't hit the golf course, try some videos that I've been thinking about, in those 10-15 min. blocks. Plus, I can fit in some 'at the office' exercising as well. Speaking of which..

Exercise in one place that you normally wouldn't - yep, the office. I work on the 5th floor, so I'm thinking to add the stairs more often. I've only done it a few times, so why not up the ante some here. I'm thinking, too, I can fit in Coach Nicole's 15 minute desk workout.

It'll do me good, and if I'm really feeling ambitious (it IS only a three-day work week for me, off today, and taking Friday off as well) I may take off at lunch and get in one of those small-blocks-of-time walks as well.

Good plan. I feel better about meeting the goals, just talking about them here. I suppose that's the point of this, isn't it? I read/liked a Secret of Success this morning, and it said in essense - blog for yourself. Don't blog for anyone else, simply say what you want, how you want. Yep, here's me, doing that.

    Thank you ladies! emoticon You're both such great supporters, I truly appreciate you both!

    2 flights of stairs today, and while it was better than last time, it still had me winded. I reached my floor (no I'm not climbing from the ground floor yet, are you nuts??) and cruised on to the ladies' restroom. I was entirely prepared to apologize and protest that I wasn't some lurking sick-o heavy-mouth-breather, just a recent stair climber, but no one else was there. Whew!

  • no profile photo CD6896537 can do it! And the stairs is an excellent way to get in some exercise. And I know doing those desk exercises help!! I do them 3 days a week.

    Sounds like you have a great plan in place. I think it promises to be a great week for you!!
