Ok, ok, I have been a lazy blogger . . . I have three drafts waiting to be finished and published. I am just going to do that over the next few days.
So first off, my friends Dani & Jo also have blogs, and they have been doing these "Top Five" lists on Fridays. I am going to join them.
A couple of weeks back the topics was "Fitness Goals for 2013 and Beyond". I made my list and now I am finally getting around to posting.
5. Record my weight loss goals and progress
I have the WW app and Etools, and at each meeting on Saturdays I record my weight. I also reset my starting weight to match what I weighed when I went back to WW on November 17 (314.8).
What I need to do now is take some pictures of me, and then continue to do this every month or two. I also want to take my measurements and record those as well.
4. Set up the Wii for my fitness related games
This summer, right before I broke my ankle, I bought two fitness games for the Wii. The first was EA Sports Active 2 (which came with monitors/bands that you place around your thigh and upper arm) and The Biggest Loser Challenge.
I want to get everything set up so that I can actually use these two games on my brother's Wii console.
3. Join a gym or fitness facility
When I lost the weight on WW the first time I walked to and from work everyday from spring until fall. When the weather started to get cooler, about a year after I started attending meetings, I joined Spa Lady. Every morning I would go to the gym for some cardio or weights or both.
When I moved to Calgary my hours had changed, and I found it difficult to work out my fitness schedule. Then I got a bad cold, missed a couple of weeks, and lost my really nice gym shoes. I ended up cancelling my membership. I feel the lack of exercise played a huge part in me gaining back almost all of the weight I lost.
My aunt (and sometimes ride to work), belongs to Gold's Gym with my uncle. We could go together in the mornings before work. Dani and I also discussed membership at the Y so we could do Aquasize classes together.
I am just not sure what I want to do. I don't feel ready to make a commitment. Maybe I should just try out the different options for a bit and see what works.
2. Use the recumbent bike while watching TV
I love watching TV. After a long day at work, all I want to do is relax with my favourite characters. My brother bought a new TV, and then he moved his recumbent bike out of his room and set it up in front of the new TV.
There is no excuse, I just need to get off my lazy ass and start by doing 15min every evening. I even have my exercise shoes right there by the bike ready to go.
1. Plan and track my exercise
Most of all I need to set up a plan to get moving, even if it is just a little bit each day. I also want to buy the new WW pedometer so that I can track my steps. Every small effort will help.
