Ha ha, the fact that I am posting my Motivation Monday post on Tuesday is a good indicator of how I am doing!
My goals for last week were:
- Exercise three times a week for at least 30 minutes
- Record calories eaten
Um... OK. I recorded my calories each day that I was at a computer, using Calorie King (which I highly recommend for Australians). It did help me make better choices, and I learned that some things I assumed were healthy were actually far too large for one meal. I didn't manage to do it every day, though, so I'll make more of an effort this week.
I exercised twice: Pilates for an hour on Wednesday and walking for 40 minutes on Friday. I was having a really stressful day on Wednesday and doing Pilates at lunch was fantastic: everything melted away and I completely relaxed. Work is very intense at the moment so I really need to step up the exercise to combat this.
This week I am going to try to meet those goals, and am adding another goal:
- Cut out lollies and sugary drinks
