Spring Chicks Challenge - Goals for Week #2


I didn't do as well as I had hoped on Week #1 of the Spring Chicks Challenge, but all is not lost.  My exercise was not on point, and my nutrition was just "okay."  As such, I didn't see a change in my weight, but I'm just restarting my regimen, so I will get my butt in gear on Week #2 for sure.  You'll see I've modified my goals slightly from last week.  I'm tracking via MyFitnessPal, so calories are easier to monitor.  I'm also adding a meal and snack planning goal, as last week I let myself get too hungry between meals and subsequently indulged on anything that was convenient (...I really enjoyed that Krispy Kreme donut, though!).  I did an excellent job with my water and with tracking everything I ate (yes, I tracked the donut!).  I just finished my daily 2-mile walk on the treadmill and I feel AWESOME, so I'm off to a great start for Week #2.  Wish me luck!  Here are my goals:
  • Walk 2 miles on the treadmill (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday)
  • Do a 3-mile walk around my neighborhood community (Saturday)
  • Plan the next day's meals and snacks each evening before bed
  • Do not exceed daily caloric intake of 1200
  • Drink 8 glasses of water daily
  • Track food and exercise on MyFitnessPal daily
  • Treat myself to a day of "exercise rest" IF previous day's goals are met (Friday & Sunday)

  5. Walking is so good for you and such a great way to get in exercise.
    Week 2 is here - make the best that YOU can. Sounds like you know where you went wrong, so you can now focus on making better choices.
    I too could do a LOT more exercising right now. And make better choices in food. But this week so far (only day 2) I am doing better than last week. And next week I will focus on being better than this week. Habits... :)
    Have a fantastic week!

  7. Harder goals lead to greater achievements! You just need to keep your body well prepared for action and not let it be exhausted. I did not realize the vitality of right nutrition until I've come across militarygradenutritionals.com/blog. Found there lots of useful advices on how to enhance your physical capacities.
