Monday Motivators: Lower the bar


Last Week: Was a complete fail. I walked/ran ZERO miles. I did my hip/butt strengthening exercises ZERO times. I took my FitBit off one night to charge and forgot to put it back on for 1.5 days. The other 5.5 days were… Well actually, I just did the math and I averaged 5400 steps/day vs. a goal of 5000. So I guess that makes the week a mostly, but not entirely, total fail.

This Week: I’m learning a lesson from last week and adjusting. It’s my last week at work. I’m going to focus on that and give myself a break in the evenings.

  1. I am, however, registered for the Crohn’s Crusher 5K Fun Run in San Francisco on Saturday. So 3 miles should be a given. You should follow my good example and register yourself.
  2. In addition to the 3 miles I’m going to shoot for 5000 steps/day again. What the hell.
  3. As for the hip/butt strengthening exercises… How about once? I should be able to do this ONE friggin’ time.

  1. The fact that you even make goals is pretty impressive! I just noticed my fitbit is dead and I’m not sure when it died. If I’m not wearing it, I try to take as few steps as possible, so it’s not for nothing (what?! I know what is crazy.)

    • I don’t know… anyone can MAKE a goal. I have noticed that I’m choosing to park farther away instead of looking for the closest spot. Wherever I’m going. So I can get more steps in. That’s gotta count for something, right?

  2. I am sure I have a fitbit somewhere, but I have no idea where it might be. I think that the last time I saw it was during my move. So I win?

    I’ve been doing pretty well for me over the last few weeks. I’m boxing about ~3 times a week and running maybe once. Still better than nothing. If I join the 5K this week it will be my 1 run of the week no? 🙂
