August by the Numbers

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

So ends my summer of tracking. In August, I added a goal to my tracking calendar to move at least 25 minutes each day. Here's the tally of all four calendar goals (Calories within limits, less Alcohol, six hours of Sleep, Fitness 25 minutes):

Calories: 55% (up 7% over July, up 11% over June)
Alcohol: 58% (up 13% over July, up 2% over June...July must have been a party month)
Sleep: 97% (up 3% over both months)
Fitness: 64% (no comparison)

Finally Fessing Up for July

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Okay,I've put this off long enough. Time for those July stats for the three primary goals: calories within range, less alcohol, six hours of sleep.

Calories: 48% (4% improvement over June)
Alcohol: 45% (11% down from June)
Sleep: 95% (same)

So far in August, I'm doing fairly well in those categories, and I added a goal for fitness each day.

  Celia I know how you feel. It's like....if we don't weigh we won't know we gained.LOL

Yesterday I went with friends all day on a trip. I tried to stay on track but just didn't know how I did. When I got home I had to make myself track. It was like if I didn't track I could forget that I might have gone over. Well, I tracked and was over but only by 138 calories. I consider it a good day because I tried so hard and had I been closer to a food scale or computer I would have made it.

You are successful because you are working on it and tracking and going for your goals.! good work

Finally Before and After

Friday, August 09, 2013

In cleaning out my hard drive, I finally found some pictures of me "before" so I could make a comparison. Note that the "after" picture is cropped from me standing next to DH, so the cropping itself is skinnier than for the "before" picture, but the difference is still pleasing to me.

I don't have before and after photos as no one bothered to take my photo, it was usually me taking them, a great way to avoid it, or standing behind my big brother and his big wife to ensure I couldn't be seen in a group shot :P
