Well I did it, I rocked week 2. The goal was 6 hours of exercise and to walk 5 miles a day 20 out of the 30 days of June.. Other then Wednesday and today (and it’s not over yet) I have walked 8-10 miles a day and each days exercise is about 100 minutes or more. So for both challenges I did great. I am still tracking, 12 days and counting and my average is about 1300 calories a day. Some days up to 1500 but most days about 1100 or so. Not bad. Now my food choices haven’t been tip top but I’m staying in my calorie range but I know that a piece of cake isn’t as good as a fruit salad which isn’t as good as some fresh fruits and veggies but with two graduation open houses yesterday and cake was offered and not the fresh veggies…well the cake won. Just a small piece (twice, two parties) but it is what it is and today is a new day.
Our next week is suppose to be a new exercise or a new piece of equipment. Well I didn’t get to Wal-mart for a new exercise DVD and I’m not at a gym anymore but I am betting that the stretching exercises that Deanna posted for me will count as new exercise. I asked her about stretching exercises and she sent me (well really a whole post about it…click here and see) lots of ideas so I’m going to start to really put my mind into stretching before and after my walk/jogs. I sorta do something but like maybe a minute or two and I know very well it’s important to take the time to do them so that will be my new exercise for the week. However, my week will only be two days of jogging/walking because I am leaving for Wyoming Tuesday night and won’t be home until really late Sunday which also means I might miss the check in on Sunday (and journaling my calories because I’m not sure what I’ll have for internet but I will bring my net book and try) but I’ll tell you about my hiking, climbing, biking, visiting, site seeing and my most important reason, being with Mike, then. I know I’ll get some exercise in when I’m there, it just won’t be my usual but as long as this butt is moving, it’s good. IT’S REALLY GOOD!!!
So there is last weeks update and this week’s heads up. I doubt you’ll hear from me until next Monday but if I can I will at least write a quick something if possible. Be well my friends. Have a blessed Sunday, an awesome week and keep doing your best to become the happiest, healthiest people we can be.
