3/1 Goal results

It’s been a few days since I ended my first week of goals. I was always taught
that excuses were a weakness, so this is going to be some weak stuff right here.

This past week was one of the most stressful I’ve ever been through. Defiantly
the hardest since Color Wars last year. I worked on 2 rails apps, a php script
and 2 iPhone apps.

I did try to do something this week though:

  • Lose 3 lbs. Well. No. I gained 3
  • 100 pushups. I was able to get 50 in.
  • 60 minutes of cardio. Nope. This is the one I’m most
    disappointed in. There was no reason I couldn’t find a few minutes here and
    there to get it done.
  • 7 new pictures posted. I took more than 7, but lost my card
    reader, and just didn’t have time to sit and process images
  • Save $50 for Dani. YUP!

Not a great result, but frankly I’m not that upset. There were a few times this
week when I was exhausted but did push ups anyway. I need to choose goals that
I really care about and move my life forward instead of just random stuff I think
of.

I’m taking this week off and will be thinking about what really matters.

  1. I’ve found that setting weight loss goals in months and years rather than days and weeks works better for me. Because you want to think of it as a long-term, permanent change.

    And for exercise, I’ve found the most important thing is routine. Get into a habit where you do the same thing every day. Maybe 15 minutes of cardio every. single. time. you put Dani to bed. Try something like the DontBreakTheChain.com aka Calendar About Nothing.

  2. 50 pushups? That’s pretty kick ass!

    I came across your site after doing a blog search for people mentioning iPhones and pushups. Don’t know if you’ve seen our app, PushupFu, but I reckon it’d be perfect for you re goal-setting ;)

    Not only do we have a great 100 pushups course, but we use iPhone/iTouch motion-tracking to ensure consistent and slow reps – just like having a robot personal trainer! There’s even a battle mode!

    If you want to give the app a go, we’re giving out a bunch of free copies over the next few weeks – email me at the above address or follow me on twitter (@GymFu) and I’ll add you to the draw.

    Even if you don’t use the app, all the best with your fitness.
