It's time to post my first update for the Hot 100 Challenge. This challenge was started by Steve over at Log My Loss and it's a great way to make the last 100 days of 2009 really count!
Here's my Hot 100 goals and how I'm doing so far:
Exercise a minimum of 5 hours per week - I actually tally things up on Saturday nights, but I can already tell that I nailed this one. Yesterday alone, I spent 2 1/2 hours exercising-- between walking, visiting the gym, and my ChaLEAN Extreme workout, Woo-hoo!
Eat foods rich in omega-3s at least 3 times a week - I know that this one is a wrap too. Luckily, I LOVE salmon and don't mind eating it for dinner 3 or more nights per week. I also often make an extra serving and have it for lunch the following day. Next time I have my cholesterol checked it should be ridiculously low.
Complete all three months of the ChaLEAN Extreme fitness program: Well, this will take another 9-10 weeks, but so far, so good. This program guides you in using heavier weights with proper form. I see changes in my muscles already and I LOVE it!
Consume at least 5 fruits and veggies per day - I admit, this has been a challenge this week. I am busy so haven't been fussing in the kitchen as much. I bought some baby carrots and other veggies last night to make this easier.
Eat fish a minimum of five times a week - Got it! Between the salmon and the tuna I've been having either fish or egg whites for lunch everyday. No, I'm not bored. Go figure?
Eat 5-6 small meals per day - I didn't do real well on this challenge this week. I ran out of my protein powder and was real busy with work -- so lots of times, I skipped my snacks and/or had scant dinners or lunches with JUST a protein. Hey, not good, I know. As soon as I post this, I am ordering more protein powder and cutting up some veggies to nibble on today.
On other fronts, while at the gym last night I was doing cable flies (with 50 pounds---woo-hoo) when this guy walked by who was touring the gym with one of the obnoxious salesman, I mean, trainers.
Anyway, the guy weighed probably about 450-500 pounds. I remember what it took to get me through the door three months ago and I really wished that I could walk up to him and give him a hug and say, "I know that it took balls of steel to walk in here and I know that you can do this."
But of course, I didn't do that.
I hope that everyone is on track with their Hot 100 goals! If ya aren't-- get with it, dudes!
Be good to you today!
