Plan for the week

July 7, 2008

Planning, planning, planning.

There is nothing that can take it’s place, is there? Without a plan things rarely take the form we’d like – even with a plan it can be hard.

There is no way I’m going to be able to get in exercise if I don’t plan it.

So here’s the plan for the week, written down, visible, committed and able to hold myself accountable.

  • Monday July 7 : Walk to and from appointment (40 min) AND either swimming or elliptical
  • Tuesday July 8 : Some form of serious cardio
  • Wednesday July 9 : 15 min light walking (get off metro early)
  • Thursday July 10: 15 min light walking (get off metro early)
  • Friday July 11 : cardio
  • Saturday July 12 : cardio
  • Sunday July 13 : cardio

At least one, maybe more, of these days towards the end of the week might be rest days.
And just to report in on this past week – I made my focus coming back to exercise and I did a pretty good job of it.

  • Friday June 27 : swim
  • Saturday June 28 : walk
  • Sunday June 29 : swim
  • Monday June 30: none
  • Tuesday July 1 : 15 min walk
  • Wednesday July 2 : 45 min walk
  • Thursday July 3 : 15 min walk
  • Friday July 4 : 15 min walk
  • Saturday July 5 : 75 min walk
  • Sunday July 6 : 40 min elliptical

All in all it adds up to something that would not have me thinking I was a complete slug 2 weeks ago… Plus I’m down 3 pounds today.
