I'm doing this journal on a whim. I had no plans on doing an exercise program, nor a New Year's resolution. But last year I was pretty bad with my diet and exercise, so I need a bit of encouragement, and since I saw this on twitter..and even retweeted, I thought why not do it myself and get into shape this year! Hopefully with this forum and other's encouragement I will keep at it.

I had an accident 6 years ago, so I can't do weights (neck shoulder injury) but here are my plans:
25 minute stationary bike (adding 5 minutes each 3 days)
10 minute stretching
5-10 minute breathing and relaxation exercising
making sure I drink enough water (keep track of it in this journal)
eating more fruits &vegetables (thinking of having a fruit smoothy after stationary bike)
Less sugar in my diet!!

I've been a vegan for almost 4 years, but I just need to keep track of my sweet tooth...and that's what went a bit overboard last year.

Thanks Robert...this is a great idea...hope it keeps me motivated!!

Oh..so obviously I'm not good at this, because I'm really new, and my journal just had my goals and didn't really have what I did today! hahaha. Since this whole thing was a last minute idea, I'm recording today's events just as a starting point to continue on, and oh, it's going to be embarrassing! Arg...but maybe that's a good thing!

weight: 141lbs
meals:
B-coffee w belsoy cream, 1 gingersnap cookie, shreddies + soy milk
L- crackers w tofutti cream cheese
D- home made potato soup (yummy)
Snacks - 2 small pieces of chocolate + apple + 3/4 cup pretzels
water intake: 3 glasses (I think) -not enough!
exercise: none (not enough)
meditation: 10 min. breathing exercise

hope to do better tomorrow!

Day 2
weight: 138lbs (need to weigh myself at the same time each day)
B: coffee+soy milk, shreddies+soy milk
l: left over spaghetti + apple
d: left over potato soup + crackers
snacks - 1 small pb chocolate cup, a couple of crackers+tofutti, some celery sticks
water: only 4 glasses (need to get on this!)
exercise: 25 min bike ride + 3 min cool down = 28 min. total!
mediation/breathing exercise - 5 min. + will do 5 min. before bed!

I know today is my first day of exercise, and it's no big deal that I did 25 minutes of bike ride for most of you...but it is for me! I really whined, and complained (to myself) that I really didn't want to do the exercise and made all kinds of excuses not to do it. Finally I said I'll just hop on for a quick and easy 20 minutes and no more. I put on good music, I distracted myself on my ipod, and 20 minutes was over like that! I was pumped...so I actually increased the intensity and went for another 5 minutes...but knowing how bad a shape I'm in, I didn't want to push it, and regret it later, so I started to cool off after 25 minutes.

I did forget to have my fruit smoothy tho...but did have an apple. meh.
I was hoping to get some encouragement from people here. I thought that was the point of having a journal on this forum...or am I doing this all wrong??
