Motivation Monday September 13

Motivation Monday

Welcome to Motivation Monday!  I will be chronicling my journey back to a healthy body, mind, and spirit.  Each week I will discuss how the previous week was and set some goals for the next week.  I will also be listing my progress.  If you would like to see past progress you can look in my archives for other Motivation Monday posts.  If you would like to get motivated with me please link up your post using the link form below.  Your post can be in any format you want.  Whether you are trying to get healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually or if you just have a task you need some motivation to complete...please link up so we can help support each other.  I would love to hear about your progress and help keep you motivated!

I am doing my Motivation Mondays a little differently now.  I will still be weighing in, but instead of tracking my progress by workouts done and pounds lost, I will be sharing some healthy steps I've taken during the week and some positive changes I have noticed.

Healthy Steps
DH and I struck a deal last night... for each Pepsi I drink (I got them for our guests last Friday but they ended up not coming over) I have to do two sets of 5 minutes on one of my exercise machines.  For every sweet, a brownie/cookie/etc. is five minutes on one of my machines.  I am also going to get in at least 30 consecutive minutes of exercise each day.  With that, I should be seeing some results on Saturday.  I'd like to get to 220 this week.

Accountability is so important and I have been slacking completely on my food and fitness logs.  I am going to start keeping up with those.  It's not like I have too much going on during the day that I can't take a couple minutes to right down what I ate and how I moved that day...

Changes I've Seen
I've been less out of breath this week.  I've also noticed that I am more able than I thought.  I was carrying LB around and felt like I ought to be able to carry him for half an hour at least.

My Numbers {From Last Saturday's Weigh In}
{Green is Improvement, Red is Bad, Mmkay?, Blue is Stayed the Same}
Weight - 224.8
BMI % - 54.2
Water % - 34.4
Muscle Mass % - 33
