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 #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.
