Excercise Goal: I came down with a nasty cold this weekend, so I’m going to focus on 10,000 steps per day until I kick this thing!
Food Goal: Plan and eat a healthy breakfast every day this week (my downfall!)
Healthy Habits: Drink 3 Kleen Kanteens (my water bottle) per day
I’m creating a to-do note on my phone so I can track these things when I do them throughout the day! How are you going to keep track??

Exercise Goal: 30+ minutes of exercise 5 times this week
Food/Diet Goal: Tracking my food this week, staying under 2000 cals/day
Healthy Habits Goal: I like your goal, ED13 – I’m going to drink 3 of my water bottles/day too!
I have an app on my phone that lets me track my calorie intake, and I also have a heart rate monitor & watch that will keep track of my exercise and make sure I’m getting my heart rate up there! 🙂 I’m going to use the sticky-note feature of my phone to track my water.

This week is going to be tough for me in terms of staying healthy because its finals week
that means little time to cook, work out, and most of all sleep! Not to mention my mom just sent me a care package of all my favorite junk snacks. EEP. I’m going to set the bar a little low for this first week, but soon I’ll be back on track!
Exercise Goal: get at least 2 runs and two weight training sessions this week, but move a little at least every day–like a short yoga study break or at least taking a walk every day.
Food/Diet Goal: No eating in bed this week!
Healthy Habits Goal: 7 hours of sleep everynight (thats major for finals week!)

This Week’s Goals:
Exercise Goal: run 3x this week (distance to be determined, I’ve been away from running to heal an injury for a month and it’s cold as balls outside), core 4x this week (ab exercies, planks, pullups, pushups) I’ll become more specific hopefully next week after I’ve felt this week out.
Food/Diet Goal: eating breakfast EVERY day! continued healthy eating. Normally the FI and I eat fairly healthy and only have one unhealthy meal a week. Well since this is the bee, I have a confession to make: I had McDonalds for lunch. For some reason I was craving fries like no other. So I caved. This is a big deal because I rarely eat fast food. 🙁
Healthy Habits Goal: My goal is to be in bed by 10:30 every night with the exception of Friday and Saturday nights. My brother will be in town visiting and he gets in late on Friday. I plan to drink 70oz of water a day as well.
I want to have a record of my weight and inches so that when I look back on this 6 months from now I can see the changes.
So here goes:
edit: for tracking I use runkeeper, I use the app Hydrate to keep track of water, and I use Simple Weight to keep track of my weight.

Healthy Habits Goal: keeping track of sugar intake (be more consious of late afternoon snacks), two water bottles of water per day.

Hey ladies – how’s the week going??
I’m doing really well with breakfast and water, but this cold is killing me! Between studying for finals and not being able to breathe and walk (important), I haven’t done well with my daily steps. I’m not too upset though, just trying to get better!
@notbridey: I’ve never heard of Hydrate. Very cool!

ugh I’ve not done as well as I hoped. It’s been really chilly here so running does not seem appetizing.

I didn’t do so hot on my water intake – drank a lot of Diet Mt. Dew because I pulled a couple of night shifts at the bar during the week (in addition to my normal job) and I needed the caffeine! Unfortunately that negatively impacted my water intake.
I did pretty well on the exercise front – didn’t get to the gym, but did get out cross country skiing 4 times!

@E_Lynne615: So cool! FI and I talked about trying to learn to ski this year. We’ve both lived in New England our entire lives and have never been – either downhill or cross country. My Dad used to do cross country and would come back absolutely drenched in sweat. Crazy workout!
I didn’t do so hot with my 10,000 steps this week. Between being sick and my last projects for school, I spent a lot of time sitting. This week will be better!
Exercise Goals: 2 of 7 days
Food Goal: 5 of 7 days
Healthy Habits Goal: 7 of 7 days
