This is now week 2 into my custom plan. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. My knee seems to be getting a tad bit worse. Trying to accomplish an actual exercise routine planned by an automated system has it’s downsides. Not having a flesh and blood trainer can’t account for days where you feel sick, or you encounter an injury. No. My Wii Active trainer is a cold hearted she beast that has no sympathy; no remorse. What she wants is for me to loose the weight, strengthen my heart, increase my stamina… at ALL COST! I think that’s one of the downsides to Wii Active. As awesome as it is, the 30 day challenge doesn’t allow explanation, notations, etc. But to make up for it, they allow for you to create your own exercises. Granted you have to track your own on days, rest days, etc. But that’s the whole point of this now isn’t it?
So, taking a step ahead. Save for one day that I really couldn’t even come CLOSE to thinking about exercising, I’ve managed to keep up with my exercise routine, modifying to keep up my level of intensity and not manage to blow out my knee. I’ve kept my daily calorie intake to around 1700, around 3 to 3.5 liters of water per day, and exercising 2 days in a row then resting. And I am noticing that the weight is dropping, as well as my clothes size. Which brings me to my next point:
Get rid of the scale! Get yourself a time release safe and only allow yourself to have access to it at least once a week. There are so many people that I’ve seen get discouraged from hoping on the scale every day. And the problem with that is, your weight will change from day to day. Some days it’ll be up., some it’ll be down. Eventually, if you’re doing things properly, the scale and/or your clothes will reveal that you are accomplishing your goals.
Stats for this week:
- Five out of seven days exercised
- 3 liters of water per day
- Average of 230 calories burned a day.
