For example running. I am not in the position at the moment to take on running again - and I have discovered those through the exercises I have been doing. I mean - I can run...but with a bulging disc and a few more changes attributed to babies I dont think I am in the same physical zone that I was to be running. I also used running as an express to loosing weight. Not something I want to do now.
Here is what I wrote in the beginning:
To exercise at a rate which burns fat for 60 minutes 6 days a week with one rest day a week.
To be able to run 12kms a day again.
Half Way Goal
To be exercising for 30 minutes 6 times a week.
To be able to run 6kms a day by my birthday - 3 June.
To exercise for 30 minutes a day at a rate which will burn fat 4 times a week.
These exercises can include walking, swimming and aerobics.
So....I think we can all agree that I have reached and maintained my mini goal - even with having missed three days this week I completed 4 days with 30 minutes of fat burning exercise.
So thats wonderful!!!!
Now my half way goals is to be exercising for 30 minutes 6 times a week and to be able to run 6kms a day by my birthday - 3 June.
Ok - well Im not too far off obtaining the first part but Im not sure about the running - I may be able to run 6kms on a treadmill - but certainly not road running.
And the my main goal is to exercise at a rate which burns fat for 60 minutes 6 days a week with one rest day a week and to be able to run 12kms a day again.
Again I confident I can do the first half but the running again is perhaps not so.
So I am going to make the running goals optional. I would like to start treadmill work and at the end of this school term I am going to join the gym here in town so who knows...maybe I will. But I am happy to make them optional.
Ok here are my weight goals.
Lose 40 kilos in 52 weeks.
Achieve a BMI of 30 (or lower)
Reduce clothing size to a size 16-18 (or lower)
Reduce my waist to 100cms or lower (80cm is desired)
To reduce my blood pressure to a normal range of approximately 120/80. This may need to be checked routinely by GP.
To have lost 20 kilos by my birthday - June 3rd.
10% Weight Loss Goal
Once mini goal is met then reset to another mini goal.
Upon reaching mini goal - a full body massage at local massage centre.
So I think I am traveling well towards these and I am still happy with them.. Currently I am about 4.5kgs off my mini goal and I think that in the time frame I have been doing this that is an excellent and healthy achievement.
Only 4.5kgs away from a massage LOL.
I would like to be 100kgs or less by my birthday - that would be nice...and thats 10.2kgs away. I also have a wedding to go to in July and I am going to buy a new outfit for that as a celebration of weight loss and the marriage! So I look forward to seeing what my weight will be by then!
All in all I think I am traveling very well.
