This February I want to make count. January was a pretty stellar month: lost 8.2 pounds, completed Bootcamp, exercised a LOT, tracked all of my food, lost some inches.
I signed up for the Sparkpeople February Heart Challenge but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I want some structure. I need someone to tell me each day exactly what workouts I need to do.
At the end of the January Bootcamp I was thinking, "What now?" Every day was a different workout. The only thing I had to plan was what type of cardio I wanted to do 5x a week. Now I am on my own!
So I came up with my own goals/challenge for February:
- Lose 5 pounds (though more would be fantastic!)
- track all of my food
- have at least 500 calorie deficit per day
- Do 30 Day Shred: 3x the 1st week; 4x the 2nd week; 5x the 3rd and 4th weeks
- do C25K program 3x a week
- on days that I don't do Shred, do SparkPeople 10 minute cardio video
- do something for ME each day
I'll have to cut myself a little slack sometime this month. We're planning to spend a weekend in San Antonio. Surely I will get plenty of exercise walking around the city though. :)
So today I'm supposed to The Shred video. I'll tell you, I'm a little scared. I haven't done this in a while and the first time I ever did it I had trouble walking for 3 days. True story. I'll let you know how it goes. Surely I'm in slightly better shape than I was a year ago. Maybe? Just a little? :-/
Do you make monthly goals? If so, what are some of your goals for February?
