Winter Wonderland Warriors Week 6

Life's Journey with a Smile
My Goals:

  1. Finish Couch to 5k
  2. Finish the first round of one hundred pushups
  3. Start and finish two hundred situps
  4. Register for my first 5k
  5. Get below 170, preferably to at least 168, my 10% goal
  6. Finish at least two books
  7. Try a fitness class.
  8. Consistently track my food.
  9. Take at least one hike a month.
  10. Watch one classic movie a week.

1)What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?

I struggled this last week, and it showed on the scale. I didn’t run enough, didn’t really do the pushups. I need to push myself this next week. But I have plans this week, oh yes I do. First of all, I’m registered for my first 5k! It’s March 6th, and hubby said he’d do it with me. At first he couldn’t, but then something changed and now he can. Win. Also, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna try a Zumba class this week.

2)New month! Fresh starts! How are you feeling in February?

Motivated, mostly. I’m tired of sabotaging myself. I want to do this thing.

3)Are you competitive? Do you find that seeing how well {or not so well} others do pushes you?

I can be totally competitive. It’s a line between being encouraged and discouraged though. It helps to have competition when usually it’s just me and myself doing this thing.

4)What is your favorite outdoor winter activity?

When I was in high school, I really enjoyed skiing. Now I haven’t been on skis in something like thirteen years and there isn’t really any particular winter sport I participate in.

5)Fun Question of the Week: What would be your ideal way to spend a Saturday night?

I’m lame. I’m happy just hanging out with hubby and playing World of Warcraft.

And my positive picture this week:

Bethany Hamilton. The surfer who lost an arm to a shark, but is still a pro surfer.

  1. Self-sabotage is the worst – I do it all the time, despite my motivation and strong desire to lose weight.

    Best luck with the 5 k!! i might be doing one in May!

    Your picture is very inspiring – anyone who can go through that and still be in the water is amazing to me! But to go against odd and become a pro surfer is incredible! Good luck on your 5k!

    Good luck on your 5k! I've been working through C25K and want to run my first one this year. Scary! I also want to try a Zumba class! I've heard they are really good!
