I think my body needs to really move everyday.. and perhaps this only doing cardio m/w/f is not going to be the best for me... I mean.. YES.. It's good for me any my body... but I think my body needs/craves more and while I do need to get weights and practicing my singing in.. I think I just need to focus on just one thing.. and thats moving every day (except sunday.. baby jesus wan'ts us to rest then ; )
I *will* add strength training in... probably in the next week or so. I really want to get working out 6 days a week under my belt as well as eating clean.
Speaking of eating clean.. It is going well but I am sneaking in more substitute sugar than I should. In fact.. Im on my second cup of coffee with sweet and low... and not just one pckt.. 2 PACKETS.. for each cup. I usually do coffee with creamer and sugar.. but we are our of creamer.. I was surprised i actually liked it with just sugar... but that's besides the point..
I need to review the plan again.. I am adding in a cheese stick/day.... and have upped the protein (larger servings).. My calorie intake is about 200-300 higer than it was the first week... I felt it was a little low and I was going to bed really hungry.
So.. new workout plan
I will focus on Cardio/Strength ONLY from here until the end of May.. I can practice singing this summer while I teach at Ballibay...
CARDIO 60min/day... 6 Days a Week (Walk.. increase mph weekly and inclines bi-weekly)
STRENGTH 20-30m/day... 3 Days a Week
I've decided that since my dinner is usually my lightest meal of the day, that I'm ok eating later than usual.. I am working on getting to bed (lights off) by 11pm. I'm also going to ask my boss if I can leave half an hour earlier (5pm) since I am staying in the office for my hour lunch (we just got a fridge.. finally).. and take a half hour, in-house, lunch... I think that's a good compromise... that way I would get home a little earlier.
Anyways... lots of thoughts going through my head today. I think I *am* coming down with something. My throat has that raw,hot, icky, itchy feeling which usually leads to strep.. But I am staying as positive as possible in hopes it wont manifest into something bad!
so.. long story short...
My main FOCUS is on ME and my HEALTH/WEIGHT for the next 5 MONTHS
