November goals #3

So yesterday I took the dog out for 2 decent 40 minute walks, but was probably a bit slower than I should have been. It's like I've got a battle going on between body and mind all the time.
I'm busy at work, but so too are alot of people who manage to get up early and do their workouts, or come home pooped at night and do them.
I think the early mornings are too much to ask my poor body to do at the moment. It seems to be asking for alot of sleep, which I'm more than happy to oblige!

I'm still on the 200lb mark, and I know the only way to get it started again is to get going on the elliptical for 30 mins or so every day. I'd love to go out on my bike, but I'm too damn cold, and goosebumped fat is not pretty!!

Goals for November #2

Well I've started and mean to keep this up for the whole of next month too.

This morning I have walked Polly for 45 mins at a brisk walk, and I've completed 30 mins on the elliptical trainer too, at varying resistance levels, burning about 170 cals.
I looked at the Shred dvd too, and I figure I need a couple of small hand weights. I'll try and do this on alternate days depending on my start times for work.

Off to Tesco for some shopping for next week.

Goals set for November

Ok, so I've been a bit mojoless for the past month, but I have taken the dog out most mornings and evenings since Doug yoinked his tendon.
I am still in awe of the Heavy Man, and also of Tara (aka http://263andcounting.com/ ) who's blog has made me laugh and cry in equal amounts.
Both of these people plan goals for their journey, and I will do too, one month at a time.

So for November:
Be 195lb by the end of november
Move every day...be it walking the dog, elliptical training or shred
only weigh once per week
Drink more water

Manageable goals....what the heck...I can start today!
