Weekly goals #4

OK! I clearly didn’t post at all last week, in fact, aside from my XXfitnesschallenge goal, I didn’t know what I’d be capable of after my surgery.

Turns out, everything went find and I did all my workouts (very lightly, mind you! I probably did more cardio to make up for it, really) except deadlift day (went to the beach instead… you just need a break sometimes, OK!) I also hit my goal steps (still 12k) EVERY DAY! I am so pleased with myself!

This week my goal is to eat 1500 calories at least 3 times this week. I kind of bugered that up today (I had butter chicken+naan for lunch…) but I reckon I’ll be fine these coming days! I’ve really noticed that water does make me very full, and I’ve started drinking as much as I can to curb feeling so hungry!

Weekly Goals #3

These post titles are extremely boring, I know! There’s also the fact that again, I haven’t posted this on a Sunday like I said I would! I went to do it yesterday, and got side tracked by not liking the current theme I had.

Anyway, weekly goals round 3! This weeks goals are simple, they are to get to the gym 4 times this week. Only 4?! Yes! I am going to have surgery (don’t worry, nothing major!) on Friday at 7am! So I can’t even go to the gym Friday morning, so I’ll have to go Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs. Hope I can do it! I’m unsure yet if I’ll be able to walk, and even I can, I might downgrade my steps to only 10k.

Weekly Goals #2

Woops! I’m two days late with this, but mainly because I’ve been so busy and tired these past days! I did do my journalling, where I did add this weeks goals, on Sunday, so I don’t really think it’s too late to post them  here!

The upcoming goals of this week are mainly food related. The first one is NO  BUYING LUNCHES! At least, no pies, Subway, BK, sweets anything of the sort. The reason behind this weeks goal is mainly because I’m BROKE.I have yet to make a meal plan for this week (if I have time after the gym I shall do that), but I have already bought 3 meats (mince, a roast lamb, and some chicken mignon) that I’ll just need to add vegetables to. Both the lamb and the mince should do 4+ meals,  so I already have 4 lunches. 🙂 I’m only working 4 days this week, and 3 next week (due to surgery) so lunch wise at work I think I should be OK these coming weeks!

Weekly goals #1

Last week I had set myself some pretty easy goals, just to get into the swing of goal setting, the first was to go to the gym 3 times, usually this is easy for me, but due to the Christmas holidays, the gym closed earlier on some days… However I managed to make it four times last week! The gym thankfully when back to its normal hours so I could make it after work twice this week.

I can forsee in the future that getting to the gym is going to be an issue, now that I work 30+ hours a week, and I am not an early riser. For the most part, I have chosen to do two of my workouts on Monday and Tuesday, as they are my days off, and then the third one I will do any other day, after work. I really *want* to start getting up early for the gym, but I really hate pushing time limits, and I much prefer to take my time at the gym rather than rush my workout.
