Motivationed Report for June 26-2010

GoalsThis past week consisted of me creating some structure and finding out what will work best for me in the areas of fitness and health. Although I did have some late night snacks and a few sweets my overall food intake was less for sure. That combined with my workouts have loosened up the clothing somewhat.

Unlike previous diets or fasting hail mary behavior I concentrated on less food, low carbs, salads and taking vitamins. So it was a breakthrough for me not to have had any binge eating and yet not fast for 4 days… it’s more like settling into a something stable and doing some testing… really being aware of how I feel after I eat a certain food or “thinking” about why I am going to the kitchen.

Weigh In221 lbs   Goal – 195

Activity This Week

  • 75 Min. of Kettle Bells – 3 days X 25 minute KettleWorx Workouts – GOAL MET
  • 208 Push Ups – 3 days of 100 Push-Ups Challenge – Week 1 – GOAL MET
  • 1 Bike Ride – 23 minutes medium pace – GOAL 3 Rides –
  • 1 Hour – On skates playing pick up Hockey with my son – Bonus

It’s Not Just About Weight Loss

“Noticing” the good things and accomplishments in other areas of my life help me keep the momentum going with working out and they tend to feed off of each other. I was challenged a few times and seem more prepared and focused on these goals I’d written down and started to burn them onto my mental chalkboard.

  • Brought on a new monthly client for my internet business
  • Had a inspiring moment with my daughter around goal setting and self talk
  • Worked out 2 times with my wife – A first in a long, long time
  • Was present while my son got his 1st assist in Soccer, got an assist with my son playing hockey on the ice and watched “Miracle On Ice” with him, an inspiring hockey movie about the USA vs RUSSIA game of 1980
  • Played Guitar Hero with my son watching him nail Steely Dan, Willie Nelson and Nirvana
  • Had a friend tell me he ran, worked out and hadn’t been active in 10 years because of reading this blog
  • Wrote out BIG GOALS on a white board in my office

It’s never too late to start.

100 push up challenge

100 Push Ups!

100 Push UpsI am going to do 100 push ups. The program says 6 weeks and I can do it so that what I am going to do. At this point I didn’t really give it much thought. I just made the “decision” to go for it. I can get through maybe 15-20 right now. I have to do the test first and I will see where I start. The iPhone App looks helpful and will post to twitter and facebook when I complete my session 3 times per week.

To make the commitment stronger I wrote it down as one of my fitness goals along with the companion fitness challenges of 200 Sit Ups and 200 Squats. I am still going to go to the gym and bike 4-5 days per week. This is an add-on.

If you are thinking of starting back into exercising than this might be good for you. 3 days a week only. No costs…well no money… it will take some determination.
