Sharing my thoughts about using my experience with the Army Physical Fitness Test (AFPT) to measure my 2017 fundamental fitness goals. You must have a minimum fitness level to join the Army and improve it by the end of basic training In the Army, we took an initial...
194.8 is my starting point for 2017. This past year I hit 200 for the first time. My goal is 185 and to be much more fit. I had hoped have better managed my diet and exercise this past year and will deepen my resolve this year. In the end I just need to stop eating...
Eating better. Moving more. Excited to see this. I've doubled my activity level beginning in July to 10,000 steps a day. The result is I've lost 10 pounds in 40 days since I started.
I've lost count in my life how many times this is been my dinner. It's so hard to say "no more."
I've found that I definitely have to do something intentional in order to get 10,000 steps. Either some time on the treadmill or a very long walk at lunchtime.
I spent an hour this morning walking around downtown and through the mall. I multitasked and was able to make several phone calls and knock out alot of audio dictation on project notes.
By logging what I eat each day in my Fitbit app, it's created an awareness of the foolish things I was eating, as well as oversized portions of food. The result has been a 500 cal daily differential in my favor! I'm eating more health now. Over time that will...
A great start but it tapered off. My weekend activity is dramatically less. The rest of the week I spent my days driving to appointments, not walking. The treadmill first thing in the morning will be my key to success.
So far so good. Parking at the far end of every parking lot and doing laps in the mall at lunch add up!
Just a brisk walk. It will be interesting to see how I can build my speed and endurance up over the next month or two.
It sure makes it hard for me to get any exercise when I have six banker boxes stacked on top of my treadmill. I’m going to make time for at least 30 minutes of very fast walking on it every day. I’ll probably use that time multitask a bit and listen to an audiobook,...
Bought some chicken breasts, fish, sausage, bacon and brats to broil/bake up and have ready to eat throughout the week. My goal is to have some 5 minute meals ready to heat and eat.
220 minus your age x 80% = THR. This was at the very end of my 1.5 mile speed walk. I'm also going to log it after 10 minutes post exercise to see how quickly I come back to my resting heart rate of around 70 bpm.
Day 1. More active. Less eating. And eating better. Drinking more water. 10,000 steps a day is a stretch from where I have been.
Getting 10,000 steps a day isn’t easy. But I made myself a promise to park ‘far far away’ every chance I get.
This is my new snack. Goodbye chips, crackers and cookies. Banana, Strawberries, Pineapples and Orange juice meetup in a 1000 RPM blender. It is extremely tasty!
