Gaining not Losing - Fit Mommy Friday
So this week has not been as good to me as most. You would think after such a great weekend and exercising and eating right I would've stayed on track, but once again it seems as if I have fallen off the band wagon. I even GAINED a pound - not my idea of fun or getting fit.
So today my husband and I spent our exercise time mowing the lawn - which really needed it (some of the weeds were up to my knees.) Anyways, we also went to the mall and walked around and I plan on playing a little on the Wii tonight. So my determination for this week is increase the exercise.
I think that is my main problem - exercise and lack of consistency. This week I plan to get good cardio exercise in at least 5 out of 7 days. I will be walking at least 1/2 mile (twice around my little neighborhood) for no less then 3 days. Today the lawn work counts for the "walking" so that's one day. Yeah!
One other thing I hope to do is to really watch my intake of extra carbs. Sometimes I get hungry and I just eat. Instead of eating right away I plan on drinking some water. That will help me meet my goal of 40 - 64 oz of water per day as well as curb the hunger.
Another item I am going to include this week is regular quiet time. I need to get this back rolling on a regular basis so that by time we get back to going to school everyone knows when it's rest time - mom will be doing her own 'rest time' and getting in touch with God.
So to sum it up, my goals for this week are:
Exercise - cardio at least 5 out of 7 days
Water - 40-64 oz (before having a Coke Zero - and only drink 1 per day max)
Carbs - Keep between 20-30 per day
Food - Eat 1 raw meal or snack per day
Spiritual - Personal quiet time and Bible reading
So how have you done? Would love to hear about your week. And I always love encouragement. Be sure and stop by at Got Chai? and post about your Fit Mommy Friday.
