Assessing January Goals: II: Weekly

Thursday, January 30, 2014

My weekly goals were harder to hit than my monthly ones--in some ways. Actually, I made it to the Y to exercise FOUR times a week two of the weeks, and at least two when I still had shingles....which...may not have been wise.

And, *with* the Polar Vortex AND shingles, I did still get out to hike ...twice. ....once for three hours instead of an hour an a half, oops.

I did keep my heart-rate within my target range.

And I think I kept up with water intake very well (I needed to all the more since the shingles medicine makes a person thirsty).

What happened only once at the gym, and otherwise ...in life... was strength training. For this next month, I'm going to look at being more mindful of adding that in~

    I was going to say this but you already heard it -- get healthy FIRST! Shingles are NASTY lady. Once you get healthy, you'll lose the weight.

    Look at me -- if I didn't let this tendon heal properly, I bet I wouldn't be snow shoeing in about a week!

    You can do this but be good to yourself in the process!!!!

    Don't forget to allow your body to heal! (Maybe you might want to check out how much exercise you should be doing with your second round of shingles???)
