The gym hasn’t seen too much of me this week. I swear, it seriously is a time issue. Sure, I could get up an hour earlier every morning to squeeze in some gym time, but since I am already getting up freakin’ early (5:30 a.m.), I really can’t.
However, I made it a point to take the bus to work and get in a 15 minute-walk across Campus to my office every morning. Walking counts, right?
I think (or I am trying to convince myself that) I made some progress with the water drinking issue. I’ve been better about taking a 32 oz. bottle of water to work (and almost finishing it!) every day before leaving the office! Go me! That is a huge accomplishment for someone who hates drinking water. I can only hope that I’ll be able to keep it up (it’s not like I haven’t tried before and failed miserably).
My goals for this next week:
- Actually seeing the gym from the inside again.
- Cooking fresh and healthy meals (from scratch!) every night.
- Keeping “Operation Less Squishy” in focus and do some weights at the gym
(I tend to just hang out on the cardio machines and maybe do a few crunches – I know that I can do better than that.)
- Getting enough sleep.
I know, this last goal doesn’t quite fit in with “being active”, but I’ve learned about myself that I am less likely to get in a workout, when I am not only completely burned out from a long work day, but also didn’t get enough sleep in the first place. Therefore, I really have to make it a habit to be in bed by 10 p.m. (lights off!).
7,5 hours are the minimum amount of sleep I should get every night (possibly more on the weekends!).
How I can tell that my body was just “burned” this week? I slept away the whole Saturday. It rarely happens that I just sleep away a whole day, but when it happens, I know that I was seriously running on empty.
How did your week go? What are your goals for the coming week?
