January 18th & Treadmill Tip

I think I have it easier than some when it comes to being able to be on a regular meal schedule. I am a teacher and with that...I'm put on a schedule. I eat once I get to school, have a scheduled lunch at the same time every day with the opportunity for snacks in-between meals.

--Thought of the Day--

I am also a preacher and after reading a passage the other day - I wondered how much of that passage could be applied to the fitness regime. It was Colossians 3:1-2. It talked about seeking out that which is from above in verse 1, and then in verse 2 it says to "...set your mind on the things above, not on the things of this earth." We are so easily driven to do something but once we hit a wall or fail a couple of times we give up --- but what have we fixed our focus on. Is it the temporary gain -maybe a couple pounds off the scale or the long term goal of better health and/or (Scripturally) - the very character of God?

When we hit that wall -- whether it's the two mile mark, ten mile mark, or the constant struggles in life...where has your focused been set? Clear your mind and focus.

Food Intake:

1. 1 1/2 cup of Raison Bran Cereal

Treadmill -- 3.3 miles was a good workout.

Treadmill Tip 1: If you can get a tv around your treadmill, you should do it. You are still doing what you like (watching tv), don't miss anything of your favorite show, and you are getting fit. I use my ipod and watch tv shows...makes time go by really fast if it's one of your favs.

Miles until Goal....: 991.04
