Shape Up the Nation, Round 1
Ahh, yes, Shape Up the Nation Round 1 is now in the books. How did I do? Over two weeks (14 days) I:
- Lost 0.4lbs (yeah, not so great)
- Exercised 1,070 minutes (76.43 minutes/day)
- Walked 160,047 steps (11,432 steps/day)
YAY! How do you like (most of) that? Yesterday was actually my highest step count day. I walked April twice (45 minutes and 30 minutes) and walked around the mall for a total of 18,000 steps!! DANG! Maybe I was just shaking my booty extra hard . . .
What should I do for the next round? Go for more of course! Goals for Round 2:
- Exercise 80 minutes/day
- Walk 12,000 steps/day
- Lose . . more than a pound!?!
How do I achieve this? I will join Matt on Friday morning runs with April. And volunteer to take her on a weekend day.
And the biggest thing? EAT BETTER! I’ve seriously been absotively, posolutely SUCKING at eating well. Therefore stopped at the grocery (after a gym visit doing this lifting session) and got:
- Strawberries (they are in season and smell absolutely delicious)
- Sweet Potatoes
- Chicken breasts
Trying to start the week on a good note.
Want a picture for the day? Yesterday Matt and I went shopping. We both needed new running shoes and, unbeknownst to each other, ended up buying the EXACT same pair of shoes (okay slightly different colors), but the same model:
Isn’t that funny!?!
