Default Goals for the week

Hi there everyone, I know I'm late posting goals for the week, but this is the first I've been able to take a break and post! My goals are the same, except for the addition of sodium. I always watch this closely myself, but it seems to be pretty important to whether I have a loss or not, so I'm adding it to make me more accountable for that too. Today has been a good day foodwise, but I've hardly moved from my desk, so steps will not be good for today.

Darlene, I'm so glad your daughter is better!

Quinn, welcome back!

Tori, sounds like you're having a great time, we'll be here when you get back!

Mern, hope you're alright, I miss you

I'll try to get back here later to read through the rest of the posts, but I wanted to get my goals posted.

1200-1400 cals
80 oz water
Treadmill T-Th-Sat
5000 steps on non TM days
8000 steps on TM days
Weights and Floor Exercises at least 3 times.
Sodium between 1500mg and 2500 mg per day
Post here every day

Julie

Mike, I am betting your 30 minutes in the gym was a lot more labor intensive than mine was.

Mary, thank goodness you found a Good Samaritan in running shoes. I could picture you out there, you poor thing. Yes fix that lock or get rid of it!!!

Alison, I love the idea of taking up something for Lent. Or giving up the couch!!!

Hope, it was a good one. I have the shaking feeling in my arms. I'm sure your workout was just fine. Not everyone needs to workout until they shake.

I probably should. It'll make things easier. I think part of me likes to prove (even if only to myself) how far will power and determination will get you. I've never really "trained" for a 1/2 marathon. That's probably why I feel like I've been in a car wreck after the race. My knees, ankles and back will take a beating (b/c I will jog as often as I can). My legs, especially calves will be super sore. My feet will have blisters, and my arches will kill me because I'll be using some worn out shoes. My chest will be sore b/c I'll be gasping for air for just about the entire race and my shoulders will be sore from my arms going back and forth, back and forth.

I'll whine, bitch and moan about being sore but my will power will get me to the finish line... if my heart doesn't explode first.

BTW, just like last time, I'll keep y'all posted through out the race. I'll be looking for y'all to keep me going. Oh and I'll take lots of pics.

It sounds like an ordeal!!! Maybe your week's goals could be on preparing a bit more. For goodnesss sake, at least get some good shoes!!! But prep or no, good shoes or no, I will cheer you on. Because it is a great accomplishment and I admire anyone who does it.

Hope, it's too late to change shoes. New shoes would cause more harm than good.

Kim, congrats. I love squats. Do you ever do overhead squats? Those are hard!

I don't know what overhead squats are? I use a rack because i have no spotter. I love squats and leg press because i can move significant weight and it makes me feel really good.
