Jessie1405's Journal, 20 August 2012

Day 15: I am starting my third week of dieting and I am doing well. My challenge (12 Week Walk Program) starts today. I am very excited about that starting. My goals this week are similar to last weeks, which are:

This week my goals are to:
1. Continue to exercise (For 6 days and 1 rest day out of the week).
2. Continue to watch what I eat and how much I eat (Five 300 calorie meals a day for a total of 1500 calories a day).
3. Continue to drink water throughout the day (Drink at least 64 oz of water a day).
4. Continue to think positive thoughts (Continue to improve my determination and strength).

For myself, I have already successfully started the walk challenge this morning. For my session # 1, I walked on the treadmill for a total of 18 minutes. I did a five minute warm-up. Followed by switching between a 3.5 MPH brisk walk and a 3.0 MPH slow walk. And finally I did a one minute cool down. It was very hard for me. I was sweating up a storm. But it was a great start to my walk challenge.

In addition, I also did my usual 10 minutes on the elliptical. So, my exercise is done for the day. Now, I just have to get through my work day. Nothing too stressful cause we are in our off season right now.

But anyways, I can across another quote on someone's profile that says, "If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse." I like this quote as well as the others I have posted in the past. Because changing my lifestyle is very important to me and it gives me hope that I will find a way to make this all happen and not make excuses. I am on the road to becoming a person that is healthier and more physically fit and active.
