New fitness challenge



Today starts my new challenge. I was so successful the last time I did this blog last summer. Even though I don't know if anyone will read this, I was surprised how motivating it was to check in every week and report on making my goals.

My target date for this new challenge is the first weekend of May. I will be seeing some family then, and I want to be healthy and fit and look great. That gives me 7 weeks, and instead of trying to do 10 hours a week of exercise, I'm going to shoot for 7 and make 50 hours my goal. I would also like to be wearing a size 8, but that is not as important as getting back on track with my fitness goals.

I haven't posted anything since last July, but my band has been working pretty good for me. For those of you who are wondering, I have been at a plateau around 158 lbs. I am wearing a size 10, and most times my pants are loose. I feel great and I think this is pretty good for going through the hormonal changes. After going crazy on sweets over the holidays I finally found the right eating plan that works for me. It is mostly veggies and healthy fats, with some very dark chocolate every day. I don't really like dark chocolate, so I won't binge on it.

Since last fall the only exercise I have been doing is walking our dogs every day. I actually made it to the gym today and I am so proud of myself. My goals for this week are to make it to the gym one more time this week, and get about 4 hours of cardio in this week. I am going to work into to my weekly goals slowly, I have learned that making realistic goals each week is what will be successful in the long run.

Now I just have to remember how to change the little gadget thing on my blog :)
