Holiday Fitness Plan Day 1: Keeping Fit For the Broke and the Busy

Sunday, October 26, 2014 0 Comments A + a -

My holiday started yesterday. I am writing a day behind on this to make a more complete account on my logging of food intake and fitness activities. It is the weekend before Halloween. I do not really need two or more handfuls of candies, or that second serving of fatty food. Usually, I indulged myself around the holidays and exercise very little, so comes my plan.

Keeping Fit For the Broke and the Busy People

I realize after failing new year resolutions of maintaining a consistent healthy lifestyle, I have to start slowly but (almost) surely. I avoided exercising a lot of times because it takes so much time and effort in my already-busy life. However, it does not have to be that time-consuming and super tiring.

The Plan

  1. I will do short but effective workouts through circuit training, plyometric, high intensity, and 7-minute workouts to twenty minutes workout. 
  2.  In addition, I will take credit for walking my dogs and steps I earn throughout the day even at work. Thanks, phone pedometer. Therefore, I think, all those things together will be enough. I will do it without a gym membership and while utilizing minimum equipment as well. 
  3. Along with my activities plan of logging my food intake and exercises, I will also work on my diet to keep a daily intake within 1,300, or more if I exercise (as exercising allows me to consume more food within my limit of 1,300 calories). MyFitnessPal automatically calculates these numbers for me as part of my daily calorie allowance. I just simply sync my exercise apps with it (Edmondo, Runkeeper, Sworkit Pro, and Runkeeper).  My Pedometer steps, I would just add manually as I do not want to invest on separate gadget/pedometer that can sync with MyFitnessPal.  I am broke, remember?
Do you want to do this plan with me? Let's do it together.

I posted the screenshots and pictures of what I did and ate yesterday using MyFitnessPal app and online.
