A bit of success
Wow! I can't believe it! According to my scale I weigh a full 4 lbs less than I did at this time last week!
I full expected to be hanging my head in shame this morning. 2 days ago when I last stepped on the scale I was up 3 lbs from my initial weigh in. Granted, it was a totally random time of day- but still.
I did ok with sticking to my goals at the beginning of the week, but by Friday my plan was pretty much shot. I at least have continued to think about every piece of food that I put in my mouth though.
I have to make this quick because I need to get ready for work and get Ciara up and ready as well, but here's a quick rundown.
Exercise- Ciara and I went for our really long walk (1 1/2 hours). It was more of a saunter, so I definitely can't classify it as cardio...but at least I was up and moving instead of sitting around watching tv.
The next day I got a workout by moving books and furniture around at work. I was definitely using my muscles, and I was sweating by the time I was finished. Heartrate went up for sure.
I never did use OnDemand for a workout. Gonna have to attempt that this week.
Food intake- Better than usual, but not good. I did however refrain from buying a bunch of junk at the grocery store yesterday. I've been trying to eat breakfast every morning- just something light like a banana or a bowl of cereal. Still struggling with snacking after work. I really need to work on finding ways to occupy myself besides watching tv. Need to reduce soda consumption as well.
Water- MUCH better!...well, at least for a few days. At least now I feel like it's possible.
This week's goals-
1. At least 2 workouts
2. Make an actual meal (rather than convenience food such as frozen pizza) for dinner at least 4 out of 7 days
3. Drink at least one 32 oz bottle of water every day
4. Shave off another 2 lbs from current weight
5. Make list of rewards for reaching mini-goals
Ok, seriously have to get dressed or I will be late! Good luck everyone!
