encouraging each other to care well for the bodies God has given us
My personal goal is to regain strength after a debilitating illness so that I can live a healthy, active life with my family.
Whatever your fitness goal, please feel free to join Fit Mommy any time.
What do celebrations and company mean to you? Fun, of course, and food. Yummy food that doesn’t always meet healthy criteria, so I ate sugar most days this week, tried some yeast bread, and enjoyed some cheese. Is it any wonder that I’m struggling with aches, pains, and fatigue? Time to start eating better again!
In the meantime, I need to just take it easier for a while. There’s no way I can exercise as usual right now, but I’m getting a lot of visiting, resting, and reading done. Today I even plan to do some hand mending!
Here’s how my goals went this week:
Record my fitness accomplishments each day… Yes.
Do 10 repetitions of my eye exercises 5 days a week and relax my eyes whenever I think of it …3 times.
Go for a daily walk and average 10,000 steps a day … These are readings from my new pedometer: 9200, 12800, 9600, 8600, 9200, 7000, for an average of 9400.
Have good posture and do core strengthening exercises while walking; sit straight at the computer… Yes at the start of the week, but not later.
Work on the Callanetics maintenance program… Not this week, either.
Be usefully active for 1 to 2 hours a day, 6 days a week, without overdoing it … Because of the weather and my lack of energy, we hung very little laundry. We walked, harvested, and puttered around the house, though.
Avoid sugar five days a week … Not at all, and as Jenn pointed out last week, the temptations will only get worse as the end of the year approaches. I need to make a plan to keep myself on track.
Eat lots of vegetables, including fresh ones, and yoghurt … Yes to the veggies, no to the yoghurt.
Prepare and eat one fermented or soaked food a week… A few breakfasts of soaked buckwheat groats. This is becoming a standby in our house.
Relax daily…I skipped a one afternoon rest and paid for it. Oh well, live and learn.
Cut something out of my schedule… We have Grandma and Grandpa over, so there’s been extra cooking but very little homeschooling.
Have fun with the kids, including active fun…Not so much this week. Most of the fun has involved either meals or games with Grandpa. We’re all just hanging out together, and it’s good.
