I’ve decided to post my weight on my blog only once a month at the beginning of the month. In March I’ve gained and lost a little but overall I’ve gained. I’m not happy with this.
I still don’t and don’t want to count calories or Points but I’m getting a bit sloppy with what I eat, especially at the snacks. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is okay. I still have to lose some weight so it’s time to tighten up the reins and be more careful about what I eat in between meals.
I’m going to set a monthly goal for weightloss: this month I want to lose 1.8 kg (3.9 lbs). I still will have my weekly weigh inn days on Thursday but update only once a month.
Lose 1.8 kg (3.9 lbs).
Dutch girl gets healthy plan:
For the rest of my life I want to be healthy, have a good figure and be fit and am finally prepared to make sacrifices for this goal and workout regularly. By working out I want to achieve: lose fat, gain muscles, get a lower a heart rate during runs and run faster.
Ways to get there
Workout 4-5 times a week.
Get enough sleep.
How to keep motivated
Set short- and long-term goals.
See workouts as fun.
Look at working out and eating healthy as “want to” and not as a “must to”
Reading blogs/magazines about eating healthy, working out and running.

Workout goals 2010, update March
I’m also not satisfied with the number of workouts in March. I did the same number of workouts but in less time.
And I’m way behind on my 900K in 2010 goal, about 115K (71.4 miles).The weather in the first months of this year has been bad. I had to run 15K (9.3 miles) a week to reach my goal. Now that is about 22K (13.6 miles) a week if I want to reach that goal, which I do!
I’m not really worried about this, I’m sure I will run more K’s/miles in Spring and Summer. I think I can calculate if I reach this goal earliest in October so I’ll just keep on running.
But I’m going to set here goals too: for distance and for workouts.

- Home workouts:
When I don’t have enough time to go to the gym or go running I will do a workout of the Shred or at the WII (Active Sports). I still want to complete the Shred program but it’s not my priority. That’s all of the above mentioned workouts.
Shred: Level 1 completed. Level 2, 1 day completed. WII Active Sports: 30 day challenge, level hard, 1 day completed
This has become a long post, if you still reading: thank you.
Today I’m a bit down and depressed. This morning I picked up Roussy’s ashes and brought her home where she belongs. I’m doing okay with dealing with her loss but bringing her ashes home was difficult. So I’m giving myself the day off: I don’t have to workout because I really don’t feel like it and do what I want to this afternoon. Tomorrow’s a new day which I will use to start with the above mentioned goals.
