Well, I met my food goals 4 times last week. I seriously need to grocery shop on Sunday and stick to my menu plan during the week. The weekends are what snow me in the most. But, last weekend was unusually busy with birthday parties/sporting events. My cold was at its worst over the weekend too which didn't help. So goal for Week 2: stick to the menu plan! so far so good on that one. Still sick so haven't craved anything.
Exercise results: Met the zone 1 and zone 3 but not zone 2. Zone 1 is exercising 130 minutes, zone 2 150 minutes and zone 3 20 minutes for the week. Zone 1 is walking. Zone 2 is exercising where talking is a challenge, and zone 3 is exercising to a level where you can't talk. I also got in my strength training. My 4 year old helped me with that. He was so excited to do it with me which helped. Need to step up zone 2.
Week 2 so far: I'm def following the food plan, but exercise has taken a hit. I'm taking it easy with this cold so I can recover faster. So I already know I won't be meeting my zones this week.
Made a yummy Lasagna Soup last night from Healthy Cooking magazine. I also was able to sleep through the night for the first time last night without coughing constantly. That helps! Def on the upswing.
