Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to say thanks for the suggestions on giveaways! I will think it out, plan it and probably try to have it set up and running in a week or two. Have to decide on item and get it first! LOL SO, make sure you keep an eye out for that post so that you can enter to win something cool! Now, on to today's post...
One of my major goals for this year is to get in shape. I have mentioned that here before but I want to lay out a few of my goals and plans. Writing them down should, hopefully, help keep my accountable.
#1 - Wii Fit! We got a Wii with Wii Fit for Christmas. Jenna and I used it every day for more than a week. And then I crapped out and have gone a few days without any exercise. My goal is to do the Wii Fit every day for at least 30 minutes.
#2 - Yoga. In addition to the Yoga on the Wii Fit, I really want tto start a daily yoga program. I really need the quiet time. So, my goal for this is to get up about 30 minutes early each day and try to get some yoga in before the kids get up.
#3 - I got new shoes! Sketchers Shape Ups to be exact. Here is a picture of the pretty pretty shoes:
These shoes are supposed to help with posture, toneing and weight loss. They were a gift from my MIL. As of right now, I am only supposed to walk int hem for 25-45 minutes each day. That is for the first few weeks to get used to the way they feel and make your body feel. Then it is no holds barred. Once I have worn them for a bit I will review them so y'all can know how they work! So far, I really like them. They almost force your body to hold correct posture.
#4 - Water. Lots of it. My doctor told me that in order to avoid dehydration and help with weight loss I really needed to be drinking 1 ounce of water for each 2 pounds that I weigh. Well, damn. I have been drinking nowhere near that amount! I need to be drinking at least 110 ounces of water a day for right now (Yes, I am fat. That's why I want to get fit!) and that is a little less than a gallon of water a day. Wow. So, my goal is to work my way up to a gallon of water each day before 5 PM. That way I will not be up peeing all night long! Think I can do it?
#5 - Weight loss. I really would love to lose a lot of weight. My ultimate goal is to be about 135 pounds. But, I would settle for 150. After three kids, I don't know if my body will get back down to where it should be without a major struggle. For right now, my goal is to drop a pound a week. And keep it off. If I can do that then I will be a happy camper!
So. I will be trying my darndest to stick to these goals and update my progress on this blog weekly. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed..... Any suggestions on other fitness goals or how to stick to these?
