Day 1 of this challenge….

So my food goal was 1200 calories and I came in at 1166.  My steps for the day fell short, 8769 today but I did get in a 3 mile walk plus normal movements. My water will be awesome as soon as I finish up my last 20 oz. I fell way short on my 8 hours of sleep and am really feeling it.

So my goals for tomorrow, stick with the 1200 calories, the 10,000 steps, my 100 oz of water and 8 hours of sleep. And I’d like to get in some extra exercise. I’m going to start back up my little potty exercises. Each time I go the bathroom I do 25 of everything I can think of. Like deep knee bends, lunges, jumping jacks, counter push-ups, bend overs and twists. It adds up by the end of the day and they only take like 5 minutes or so to do. Of course I can’t do them at the bus garage but I’ll do them at home before and after work. I’m also going to go to the gym tomorrow and start the C25K program again. There is a 5K in June that I would love to at least match my time for last year or beat.

Onward and downwards, I’m hoping and trying. Good luck to my partner too. It is so awesome to have someone that is the same as me working to the same goals.

Take care my friends. Blessings!!

I've done the exercise whenever I went into the bathroom!
I didn't get 8 hours either. The time change sure does a number on me :(
Tomorrow is a new day and good luck with your goals.

You would be appalled at my calories, lack of sleep, lack of water, AND lack of running since my half marathon. It's like I've gone crazy!! :)

The Couch25k is the BEST way to start running. I swear by it!
