Goals

I guess I should have started my new goals on the 1st but who starts a fitness project on a holiday weekend? I had me some eatin' to do! Then again that's probably the attitude that has me here in the first place. Oops. So now that the weekend has come to an end I guess it is time for me to get my butt off the couch and get going.  So here are my goals for the next 6 weeks.

-Yoga 3 times per week
-Zumba 2 times per week
-Drink appx 3 Liters of water per day(I'm trying a little experiment with this one, I hear it might make my hair less static-y too, I'll let you know how that turns out.)
-1200 Calories or fewer per day.

You will notice I don't have a weight goal on here.  I think it is important to have a healthy weight goal for some people, but since I am already in a healthy weight range I really just want to live a healthier life and keep from gaining my way up out of that range./

How do I plan to accomplish these goals considering my track record of not exercising, eating too much and not drinking enough water?  There are two main things I will be relying on to help me achieve my goals.

The first is a handy little app called my fitness pal.  It is an android app, but there is a really good one for the iPhone called loseit that I used to use.  Loseit also has a website that is great if you don't have a smart phone, but still want something that can help you keep track of what your caloric intake and your exercise.  Livestrong.com is also a good resource.  No app that I have seen yet though. 

The second thing I have is you.  I expect you to comment here, let me know what you do to keep up with your fitness goals and hold me accountable for my fitness choices.  If I drop the ball on something, ask me why and don't let me get away with some stupid answer. Since I am terrible at holding myself accountable for this stuff and it just makes me mad if my husband tries to do it, I am asking for your help and in turn I offer all of you any help you might need from me.

I will start posting my stats tomorrow and lets see how I progress over the next 6 weeks.

  2. I'll keep track with you Cass! Will you do the same for me? I'm trying to get in shape after having Lincoln. I'm doing zumba 3x and weight classes 3x a week. I can't cut calories a ton cuz I'm nursing still but I am eating clean right now. I'm trying to lose 2lbs a week until I hit my goal weight. Craig and I started this a couple of weeks ago but we just put up a weight board to hold us accountable. are you doing Zumba at home or at the gym?
