Goal #1: Get 30 minutes of exercise per day:
- May 2 and 3: 30 minute walk
- May 4-7: FAIL
- May 8: kickball!
- May 9 and 10: 30 minute walk
- May 11: kickball
- May 12: 30 day shred
In addition to having failed for 4 days, I need to start doing something besides walking. See: today's 30 day shred, and tomorrow's goal of going for a run.
Goal #2: Track what I'm eating.
I started using loseit.com again, and I've logged food 7 of the last 12 days. Not terrible, but definite room for improvement.
Goal #3: Reduce caloric intake in some vague way
I told myself I was going to drink less alcohol, but I had at least one drink on 6 of the last 12 days. I can probably reduce this - but there always seems to be a reason: free beer when we win kickball, Cinco de Mayo tequila, trying the local bar's new blueberry beer... abstaining from alcohol is hard! Yet, I know alcohol is empty calories I could cut out if I really tried.
As for other ways to reduce my caloric intake, I have snacked a bit less, so that's a pro.
I'm thinking about looking for a new app to use to track workouts (mostly walking and running). I think ideally, I'd like an app that can help facilitate my workouts - e.g. has the ability to set up run/walk intervals and tell you on your headphones when to run/walk. I'd also like it to be able to store info on distance/time/pace/calories burned I think. Bonus points if it interfaces with some way for me to track what I'm eating, so that I have one central place for workouts + caloric intake. Any suggestions, blog world?
