Unless moving furniture at work for 2 hours counts, this is all for tonight:

I’m over these late nights. I prioritized sleep again last night. Hopefully this will be the last day of this, but I WAS able to get my Fitbit screenshot!

No workout tonight, so no pictureq. Late night at work. Sleep is more important. ūüėČ

Also missed the danged cut off for the screen shot.

Steps: 7286; goal 10000

Water: 112 oz; goal 128oz

Calories in:1252

Calories out: 2587

Man. . . I really don’t like those pictures, but I do want a way to track my progress. . .

Anyway, here goes. I had recently blogged here about what I was going to do. Well I’m the most wishy-washy person I know, so I am doing things a little differently.

Whatever. It’s not set in stone.

Right now I am just trying to eat healthy and make sure my calories in are less than my calories out. Which actually has been pretty easy to do so I don’t understand why I’m such a fatty.

A gal down the hall at work and I are both attempting to drink 50% of our body weight in ounces of water. Another easy one for me. I drink a lot of water.

Walking – Well hopefully soon it will be intervals and then running out right, but right now it’s just walking on the treadmill. I am going to full length of a Supernatural episode and then however much more time it takes to make a full hour.

Squats – My favorite squat challenge. I do it all of the time. I just finished up a 30-day stint so I started it over with a 15lb weight.

Abs – I’ve done these a lot before. They don’t look that bad, but they are super,¬†super hard. I am only doing one set right now. Might double that in a week or so.

Push ups – I can’t do them. But. . . here’s what I’m working on.

Yoga – I really like this Adriene girl on youtube, and I paid the $.99 or whatever it was to buy this 30 day challenge like a year ago. It’s all free on youtube, too, but I have it downloaded that’s why I paid the dollar.

And that’s it! It takes about 1 hr 45 min to 2 hrs. But I like it.

Missed the midnight mark and couldn’t get my screen shot of my fitbit. It charged most of the day anyway. 138oz of water. 1772 calories in.

Okay I want to post this here because I don’t really want this on my other blog I don’t think. . .

I’d like to do a daily post workout (shower) photo and snap of my fit bit.

Booooooooooo on the fact that my front facing camera has a HUGE crack in it. I had to reduce the exposure a lot so all the chub was visible.

One thing I don’t like about my fit bit is that it clearly doesn’t accurately track my steps when I’m in the treadmill because I had about 5,900ish steps in before I got on.

Another is that I jogged on the treadmill for an hour and it only says I have 9 active minutes? What?

Anyway, it’s still helpful. Hope to see some progress now that I have my home gym.

Just a few days ago @saholio¬†suggested that we get this blog up and running again (I don’t run, but you know what I’m talking about).¬† I sat and watched (I know, I didn’t break a sweat, but it’s a start) a couple of videos to help me plan my strategy.

Over the past 5 years I have lost a tremendous amount of tone and flexibility, and I’m sure I’ve gained some weight…not a lot, but my body tells me as much.¬† Those of us who are over 60 have similar priorities to you of the younger set, but our goals are achieved through different activities.

If we, young or old, are intending to make changes, it’s especially important to be safe.¬† I recommend stretching, even if only for a short time.

The first video I watched was¬†Pilates Gone Gray!¬†with Betsy Ogden.¬† I think I will like working out with her.¬† We’re of the same age group, and she understands being gentle on the older women who maybe haven’t been active for a very long time.

The second video was from JessicaSmithTV called 30-Minute Strength Training for Women | Home Workout for All Levels¬†¬† This will be a bit more challenging,¬† but I’m going to go slowly.¬† I definitely need the challenge.

What I’ve learned, especially from following @givemamasomesugar,¬†is that this journey will be a lot of hard work and that I must be patient for results.¬† Life is important for me to continue. . .For myself and my family.¬† I hope to gain core strength, core strength, and balance.¬† I think what I’m looking forward to most is a change in my mindset.

Let the games begin!
