Fitblogger Challenge: Week 8

Still hanging in for this challenge. I'm not adding on to my goals this week. I think I'm having a hard time with adding a new goal each week. It feels like too much.

My goals for this week are to make the past weeks goals into habits.

1. Eat a salad each day.
2. Walk one mile for 5 out of the 7 days.
3. Drink 64 oz. of water each day.
4. Get some balance back in my life.
5. Do two videos on Spark People each day.
6. Wear the MyTrak I won on the challenge. I love my Mytrak. It's helping me to keep on track. I know I have to get moving more if that circle isn't all green and it's telling me to step up my movements for my heart health.

Fitblogger Challenge: Week 6

Last week for the Challenge was a bit of a fail.  My goal was to do the exercise videos on Spark People each day as well as the previous goals I set (like drinking water, getting enough sleep and handling my stress correctly). 
Life happens however and things didn't happen the way I wanted. I didn't have access to a computer for 2 days, got sick one of them and went out of town for a funeral. We ate out too much, didn't sleep at regular times and rode in a car for too long. I feel like I still haven't recuperated from last week. I've been walking around with a major headache for the past 24 hours.
But, I know I need to get myself back into a routine to feel better.

My goals for this coming week are:
1.  Continue with the previous weeks goals.
2.  Do two videos on Spark People each day.
3.  Wear the MyTrak I won on the challenge. I think I finally figured it out. Tomorrow will be the first full day I'll wear it.

Here's to getting back on track!

Fitblogger Challenge: Week 4

So here we are already going into the 4th week of the Fitblogger Challenge.  I've been pleasantly surprised at how easy it's been to set a weekly goal instead of a bigger, long term goal like I usually do. I'm still eating the salad regularly and adding a significant amount of fresh fruit to try and replace the junk food cravings. The water drinking is easier because it's heating up here. And thankfully, the big review is over and my stress level is a little lower.

This week's goal is to move more every day.  I've joined the Spring Into Shape Bootcamp Challenge at Spark People. I'll be doing the exercise video each day (already did today's video).
