I have entered all of my goals into a notebook. I carry that notebook with me wherever I go! It has been so motivational. And effective to keep moving and not consuming so many calories. Even this weekend when I forgot to bring my slim fast with me to my mom's house. I am going to have to remember to pack some this weekend when I head to her house again and then on to Florida for a few days. Since most of my meals in Florida will be predetermined, I will really need those slim fasts for the meals that I have control over!
I am currently working on February's goal. I am beginning to think I set an unattainable goal of a 5k in under 45 minutes. But all I can do is continue to work towards that goal and will probably surprise myself on February 28th!
I am able to keep my calories under 1866 a day which is what my app tells me I need to do to make my goal weight on December 31, 2011. And so far that seems to be working! I am down 3 pounds this week. But more than that, I know I can do 1866 calories a day so I know I can make goal. It would have been very challenging if that calorie count was much lower. But I can live with 1866 and still enjoy an alcoholic beverage every now and again!
Today, I completed couch 2 5k week 1 day 2. I pushed myself harder at the beginning than eased up half way through. I ended feeling like I could go further. Good think I eased up though because I was feeling like I couldn't finish at minute 15. But I finished stronger and further than w1d1. So on w1d3 I am going to push hard than ease up again. It seems to work for me.
