Day 3 - 7 Month Focus

Well another successful day in the books! Almost perfect....however I missed one of my goals by a hair.

You see planning is the best thing to do while trying to get fit and lose weight. I thought I had my day planned out well. Exercise was done, my blog was done, I had my calories figured out and I had enough water in me I could hear barge bells!

The unfortunate thing about my Body Bugg is I can't see my stats until I plug into my computer. (I know you can do it with a smart phone, and I have one, but I'm not smart enough to keep up with all of their updates and I can't figure out how to make it work with my Bugg)

A.N.Y.W.A.Y.......So my plans were changed just a little. Instead of going right home from church, which is around 9:00pm or so, I instead went to my daughters house to wait for my hubby to get done with his ministry at the church. He did not get to her house until 10:30 or so. Of course we visited for a while and before I knew it, it was midnight. We finally got into our car and rushed home!

At 12:30am, because I am super FOCUSED on my plan, I needed to plug my Bugg into my computer to make sure I hit the mark on my stats. When everything tallied up, I found that I missed the mark on the number of steps I needed to get in. I made it to 6894 instead of 10,000!

Because of this new determination to make my goals, I was willing to get on the Treadmill, even at that hour, to make up the numbers.

But the reality of the situation hit me and I realized that I had already missed the mark for April 2, 2011 and there was no way to make it up. TIME RAN OUT!!!! And besides, I am a woman who needs her beauty sleep and them some and with the reality that is was after midnight, I knew that I could not get on the Treadmill and make that much noise. I was really bummed!!!

Not to focused too hard on the negative, I did log in 2821 calories burned and had 1585 calories intake with a  deficit of 1236 calories for the day. Not too bad!!!

So the nugget of this story is...Be prepared...Think ahead...Plan for the unexpected!!

Tonight, I'm going to the Portland Rescue Mission to serve food. I need to make sure I get my steps in ~ So I walked a 5k and then some this morning. I have my food and water planned - exercise is done! Also, I know I will be getting home around 9:00pm - so I will have everything done for tomorrow before I go. That way, when I come home, I can get ready for bed and hit my bedtime ~ 10:00pm!!

My friend Kimberlynn is setting her goal for April. She wants to walk 110 miles...This will be more than she's ever walked before in one month!!! Check out her blog today. She has a lot of celebrating going on over there!! Get to know her, she is a wonderful person, who is full of wisdom, love and joy!! She's been an awesome friend to me. I love her and so will you!!

OK are you ready to set some goals? Lets do it!

Keep focused!


  1. You went way over on your steps the other day. You're still averaging enough steps, so don't sweat it.

  2. Im sorry you missed your goal its frustrating when that happends.Good for you for getting right back on track :)

  3. I have to agree...preparation can make or break you! I'm learning to make better use of my time!!

    Have a great week!
