Week 3 - August

Monday, August 16, 2010

I got in lots of exercise this weekend. Swimming Saturday and mtn hiking 4 miles on Sunday. My eating was bad Saturday but better Sunday. At least I stayed in calorie range. I also tracked everything. Yay.

My additional goal for this week is to drink 8 glasses of water. I've been bad about that only getting in 4 glasses.

    Your pictures almost look like you live in my neighborhood. I live in NE Oregon (it appears you are in Colorado) but our mountains look a lot alike. We too went hiking this weekend (8 miles and included a 2000 foot ascent). It's a really good way to mix things up. Good for you! Get that water in and keep the sodium down. I can't tell you how much it has helped me. Keep up the good work!

Good and Bad

Friday, August 13, 2010

I'm on track for exercising and noticing some toning going on, but my weight is up this week. *sigh* Teach me to get groceries in advance and not rely on my husband. We also had a dinner party this week and I splurged a bit. Weekend is coming with a few parties so will have to watch that as well.

My goal for the week coming up is to actually track my food and of course keep up the exercising. I also want to get my water up to 8 glasses a day instead of 4. Also get all veggies and fruits in. I've been doing well with the fruit, but veggies not so much.


A new day...

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Yesterday, I was still thrown off but finally snapped out of the fog last night. I met my food goals and fitness goals yesterday but it was a struggle.

Today I feel much better. My mind is clear, I'm sticking to my food and exercise plan. Not tired like yesterday. I did really well in power yoga today. Felt more balanced.

I am getting nervous about the weekend though. I'll have to come up with a plan and try and stick with it.

Yesterday was out of control. I worked past my usual lunch hour and went and worked out at 1p instead of noon. Then it dawned on me I had a meeting at 2p I was late to, so I went straight to that meeting without eating lunch. When I got back I didn't have time to go get lunch so I munched on grapes instead. (Yesterday was the day my fresh fruits and veggies gets delivered to my workplace so at least I had something!)

When I got home, didn't have time to make dinner as I was going to Film on the Rocks. I knew I could eat something there. I got a chicken burrito and a water. I downed another water later with half a bag of m&ms. I need to work on keeping track of time.

This morning I'm dragging big time. Went to Jamba Juice to get my fav oatmeal and back on track hopefully. Have another meeting this morning but it is in the morning so should be ok. DH is going fishing so I have to figure out dinner. He didn't get all my groceries I needed so a couple items are missing from my recipe. DOH. Ck salad sandwiches tonight!

Good luck today , my reminder now is I set my phone alarm every 4 hours now to remind me it's food time it really has helped !!

Challenge for the Month

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

My challenge for this month for myself is to exercise at least 5 days a week and record my minutes on the Spark America page for my city. I set my home page to the Spark America page so I won't forget.

Last night I got 8 hours sleep. I still feel tired but considering the last 5 days I've stayed up til midnight or beyond, I have some catching up to do.

Didn't make it to the grocery store but I did make a list and am sending dh to the store today since he is not working.

"I gotta feelin'. Today's going to be a good, good dayyyyyy!"

    Sounds like a pretty good challenge! I, too, struggle with the 8 hours of sleep but know it is so important. Good luck! emoticon
