encouraging each other to care well for the bodies God has given us
by being active, eating wisely, and relaxing adequately
Last week’s Fit Mommy check in was almost perfect. This week’s is the complete opposite. I cannot understand how and why, but I’ve been able to do almost nothing this week. Perhaps I was fighting the cold my family caught. In any case, I lost my energy. In a way that was good, for I’ve been able to catch up on a lot of my reading while lying on the couch.
Hopefully I’ll be a going concern next week again!
So here’s how my goals went this week:
Record my fitness accomplishments each day… Yes.
Go for a daily walk and average 7500 steps a day … Hah! Here are my steps: 2800, 4900, 3200, 4500, 3000, 3500 for a stunning average of 3650. Hopefully that will almost double by next week.
Do my physio exercises 5 or 6 days a week … Half of the repetitions, once.
Do a tiny bit of the Callanetics maintenance program with Miss 15 five days a week… I did 5% to 10% of the recommended repetitions, once.
Do 15 repetitions of my eye exercises 5 days a week, relax my eyes whenever I think of it, and smile at my work. …Twice.
Avoid sugar five days a week … Almost, except for some more of those peanut butter balls and some low-sugar cheese cake.
Eat lots of vegetables, including fresh ones, and yoghurt, as well as one fermented or soaked food a week … Lots of fruit, a decent amount of vegetables, a little bit of yoghurt, and one breakfast of soaked buckwheat.
Eat substantial breakfasts … Most days, yes.
Relax daily…Yes, and it was so necessary!
Spend time outside… No energy for that.
Have fun with the kids, including active fun… No energy for active fun either, but we did read aloud a fair bit.
Have you had a healthy week?
