Day Seven - 04/01/12
- Active: Took breaks and stretched while I was on my laptop.
- Exercise: Done C25k Week 4, Day 2
- Flexibility: Done the Seated Stretch workout three times.
- Nutritional: Tried grapefruit - not my favourite fruit lol.
- Mind/Body: Write down 5 things you accomplished today and 5 things you'd like to accomplish tomorrow.
Accomplished today - 1) Done C25K week 4, day 2; 2) Stayed within my calories; 3) Cooked another healthy meal; 4) Tried a new fruit (I'm very bad at trying new things!); 5) Didn't get on the scale before weigh in tomorrow.
To-do tomorrow: 1) Weigh in tomorrow and be pleased with whatever the number is if it is a loss; 2) Walk into town and back; 3) Stay in my calories
- Food: Stayed within calories :)
- C25K was hardest today! Even though it was the same as Monday's seemed twice as hard for some reason!

I've given up already, I can't do everything they want me to after a 12 hour shift at work, I got home from work at 8 and after exercises and reading everything I didn't start cooking dinner until 9... Hats off to you all who are sticking with it, I'm just gonna do exercise on days off

I agree, just do what you can!

Day Eight - 05/01/2012

Active Challenge : Sit on exercise ball for at least 5-10 minutes 3 times today
I've done it once so far, I'll do it when I'm watching TV later tonight and another time this afternoon.
Exercise Challenge : Spend 5-10 minutes working on your abs
I didn't do this specifically though I did turbo jam, kettle bells and yoga/pilates which all work abs
Flexibility Challenge : 20 minutes of pilates/yoga
Check!
Nutritional Challenge : Eat at least one serving of fruit with every meal
I hate a clementine with breakfast and I'll have an apple with lunch and another clementine with my dinner
Mind/Body Challenge : Two minute meditation
Done, still a struggle and still don't see the point in the ones that are like this!

Day 3

Active challenge - park in the furthest spot from the door. : did this earlier, brother was not impressed! Then walked to my mums instead of drive.

Exercise challenge - do ab exercise. Haven't done these but did do 40 mins exercise.

Flexibility challenge - do the yoga stretches shown. I did these but yoga really isn't for me!

Nutrition challenge- eat a meal with no distractions. I did this for lunch but I was just bored. I know it should make me realise when I'm full etc but I do this anyway, even with a distraction.

Mind Challenge - set a worry appointment. Silliest thing ever, and at the moment I have no worries so didn't do this!
