Move It Monday: January 16, 2012

Well, this week was okay I guess. I didn't go walking or anything. At all. So I feel like a giant loser. It is very true that you will never ever regret running that mile. On top of that, we had Monster Jam this weekend and of course fell of the food bandwagon. We ate some things that we should not have... and might have drank some things we should not have also.... hehe. I am down four pounds now, so that is one pound this week. I guess I can be happy with that. Much to my surprise, it's something and not nothing. I did a goal list for myself so maybe this will help to motivate me:

10 pounds: Water Bottle (this sounds so small, but I want a NICE really good bottle to take with me on walks and runs. Not just one that my husband brought home from his company picnic.)

20 pounds: Cute workout gear of some sort. Don't want to say pants because I don't plan on stopping at 20 pounds. Maybe some cute sports bras and tops... or a cute jacket or watch...

30 pounds: Super cute sweats from Victoria's Secret. I love their college line but can't bring myself to spend that much.

40 pounds: New yoga pants, and probably a new swimsuit. AHH, we shall see.

50 pounds: New running shoes. I like the ones I have now but have my eye on a super cute pair already...

60 pounds: Zip lining trip with my honey. I have always wanted to do this and so has he. ALSO, new jeans for sure. Maybe some cute dresses... and I have my eye on some precious cowboy boots....

I know this is A LOT to lose but I really want to do this. I NEED to do this. Six more pounds til I can get my water bottle. WOOT! :)



Goals this weak are to eat better and get back on track with my food. Grab some of those carrots to munch on instead of something else. I already made a batch of my favorite new snack. You can find the recipe here.



I also plan on drinking half my body weight in ounces per DAY. That is a ton of water but I can do it. When I purchased this in Florida this summer, everyone thought I was nuts. Looks like it will come in handy after all. This bad boy holds 100 ounces of water. It's HUGE.

I WILL get my exercise in this week. I don't care if I have to run my stairs every morning and night. I am convinced I need a treadmill so I can have something to do while I watch The Biggest Loser. I feel like such a lump sitting on the sofa while I watch these people puking their guts up with Dolvett and Bob.

I am also setting a goal for myself RIGHT NOW that in the next two weeks I will have my water bottle! No doubt. I CAN do this. Ten pounds total, two weeks: WATCH OUT!!

Good luck to you all. What are your goals this week? Do you have a goal list?

What a great idea to "reward" yourself when you reach your target. Good luck girl!

Vanessa said...

Love your goals..it is important to have something to work towards!

I do the same with water..drink drink drink, it really makes a difference and I am now so used to it that I can tell when I haven't had enough.

Have a super week..rock that exercise!!

Amanda said...

You have some great goals girl!! The zip lining thing will be sooooo fun!! I always struggle with drinking enough water...I need one I your jugs lol!!

Amanda said...

Good luck! Maybe we can workout together!

Daisy said...

You are doing really well, well done on losing a pound this week, better than gaining one!
I like your reward system, might do one of those for myself.
Keep up the good work.

You can do it Nic!! Also, wanted to comment on the water bottle...Nalgene....That is the only way to go! I have a really big one and one that is 32 oz with a small top (the larger one seems to soak me every time I try to drink out of it in the car!) I take it everywhere! And...shoes...Brooks Pure Cadence.. :) Not that I know everything, but I do love when people give me advice on running shoes! OR...go to a shop that fits u (for free!) Good luck! I really enjoy reading your blog!

Losing a pound is awesome! I sometimes get bummed when I've only lost a little bit too, but why is beyond me. You are losing, and that's what counts. :-) As for your goals...I love them! Love that you have it all laid out and in writing. I am sooo doing that this week! Thanks so much for linking up!

Amy said...

I love the rewards that you created for yourself as you lose weight! That's an awesome idea! I need a new water bottle too, it'll make drinking more water a lot easier to have a stylish water bottle to carry around!

Core workout training should be an element of any training program. While developing a solid core may help you obtain 6 pack abs, the actual core really plays a way more important role in the overall function of the entire body.

Great idea on the rewards :)
Good luck this week girl!

You are so clever to put up little rewards for each of your mini goals! I always just end up buying myself that kind of stuff when I want it, so maybe I should start withholding till I've really earned it to make the prize that much sweeter :)

Awesome job this week!

Ophelia said...

i love that you have a reward system set up for yourself! one thing I've always found motivating when trying to get back into a fitness routine is to buy new work out clothes or shoes...even if its from tj max! this way you'll wanna show off the new stuff and "test it out" :)

Kathy said...

Great idea for the reward system - it will keep you motivated and you've broken it down into achievable goals - very smart! Oh, and a pound a week is GREAT! Good job!

Lynette @ NetteOnHerWay said...

A pound a week here as well, but hey, that's what the experts recommend! Keep it up! I like the goals! If you're like me, you might have to buy sports bras more than once as you lose. The girls are always the first to go! LOL
